Plastic surgery: You need to consult a plastic surgeon that does this procedure a lot. Make sure you interview a few plastic surgeons and then decide who to have the procedure done with.

Dermatologists and general surgeons as well as some internists can also do this type of thing for you. I agree with that you would want someone who is comfortable with doing this and has good suturing technique for aesthetic reasons.

Mole removal: Many techniques exist to remove moles (also called nevi) from the face: excision, shave, curretage, laser removal. There are many factors to consider when choosing the most appropriate technique for you as an individual including location, skin type, and risk for skin cancer. It's best to visit with a dermatologist, facial plastic surgeon or other experienced physician for specific treatment.

How do I prevent from getting moles on my face?

Not unusual: Some moles are congenital meaning they occurred in early childhood. It is very common to get a variety of growths on the skin as we mature in age. There is no way to prevent congenital moles. Sun protection is important to protect against changes in mole's behavior . If you are fair skin and have any history of skin cancer in family don't delay an evaluation.
