Depends: First, it depends how large the mole is. Next, it depends on how it is removed (shaved from the surface of the skin or punch biopsy or excised). Was it cauterized or were sutures used? What part of the body is the mole located? If it is small and shave removed, it could heal in two weeks. If it is large, excised and on the lower leg, it could take as long as 2 months.
