    Cosmetic Mole Removal

The following are potential complications of a mole removal procedure:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Scar formation
  • Skin indentation
  • Discolouration of the skin (lighter or darker)
  • Recurrence of the mole (less than 3 percent) – (this can potentially occur where laser or shave excision methods have been utilised to optimise the cosmetic result)
