Conveniently located to serve Virginia Beach
Do you have a mole on your body that has been bothering you and would like to know about your options for mole removal in Virginia Beach? Some people are born with moles, which are raised, dark areas on the skin, while others experience moles that appear over time.
Do I Need to Have my Mole Removed?
Moles in prominent or highly visible places can make people self conscious about showing their skin, and as a result, they are often removed for cosmetic reasons. Moles with any irregularities, such as uneven shape or color, or which have recently changed should be checked by a doctor for melanoma or skin cancer.
Options for Mole Removal
Your benign mole may be removed through:
Excision: The mole is cut out or shaved away, often requiring a small number of stitches.
Laser: Heat is used to “burn” away the mole and seal off the skin
In most cases, the area surrounding the mole to be removed will be numbed with a local anesthetic. The procedure usually takes less than an hour. Dr. Lopes will choose the best treatment based on the size, color, and location of the mole after she examines it when you come in for your mole removal consultation in Virginia Beach.
The cost of your mole removal in Virginia Beach will depend on the type of treatment performed and other variables that our team can go over during your consultation.

Post-operative Procedures & Recovery
It usually takes between one and two weeks to fully heal after mole removal. You should be able to return to your normal activities almost immediately. If your mole is excised, the stitches will often be removed after five to 10 days. Pain should be minimal and can be managed with over-the-counter medication. Our team will be sure to provide you with information to help you through your recovery following your mole removal in Virginia Beach.
