About the Procedure

A surgical excision of a mole, also called a “full-thickness excision”, removes unwanted growths down to the subcutaneous fat. By removing the mole from deep within the skin, the growth should to return and be permanently removed. While a punch excision also removes moles down to the subcutaneous fat, the cylindrical tool used cuts out portions of the skin into perfect circles and is only suitable for growths smaller than 8mm. If a punch excision was used for a growth larger than 8mm, issues with closure become more apparent with the circular shape of the cut not allowing for good alignment, creating excess skin when sutured. A surgical excision of a mole typically only requires a local anesthetic. Once the area is thoroughly cleansed and numbed, the unwanted growth will be removed down to the subcutaneous fat. The incision will be closed with sutures and covered with a protective bandage.

The goal of a surgical excision of a mole is to remove benign-appearing moles.


Surgical Excision of a Mole addresses concerns such as:

  • Mole Removal
  • Birthmark Removal
