I have a mole that is removed with laser a few years back. The mole did not grow back; however, the area is now swollen.
Raised scar: After removal of a mole by shaving it the scar can become raised. This is called hypertrophic scar. It responds well to injections with kenalog (triamcinolone) (a steroid). Certain laser treatments can help as well. As a last resort it can be completely excised. If the first time no biopsy was done you should so a biopsy as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will mole removal leave a scar? I have had a mole on my right cheek ever since i was born. It is very big and unattractive, so i want to get it removed. I don't want to replace the mole with a surgical scar, though. Does the procedure for mole removal lea
Any : Any surgical excision of a mole or any other facial lesion will always leave a scar. Bigger lesions will leave bigger scars. Scars may be favorable or unfavorable. Favorable scars have more natural color, are flat and blend in with the lines of the face. Unfavorable scars may be raised, irregular, or run against the natural lines of one's face. Plastic surgeons are uniquely qualified to asses a patient's face when removing cancer or moles and provide the most "favorable" scar possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a birth mark on the back of my head, but my hair covers it. If I were to get it removed, will I have a bald spot?
Yes, a small one...: about the width of the scar. When a lesion is removed, the surgery approximates the skin margins together so that it heals promptly, but the scar itself will not have hair follicles. Usually hair around it grows and covers the scar, so it is not noticeable unless one's head is shaved. If there is a concern about the birth mark and skin cancer, your life is most important. ...Read more

Callous?: I've seen situations when people bite on the sides of their tongue enough to thicken the skin creating a callous. This often appears white because of the moist environment. I agree that the best bet is to get it evaluated but it may be this benign condition. It could be removed but if it is scalloped in appearance and falls around your teeth, your bite is the culprit and it will likely recur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have to have a wisdom tooth pulled it not impacted i've had a few of my molars removed in the past is it going to be the same?
Similar but...: Honestly, it is really hard to answer that question not having seen you, the x-rays of all the teeth (extracted as well as the wisdom tooth). The reason for that is twofold. First, a badly broken down or decayed tooth may post more difficulty in removing. Secondly, some teeth appear simple to take out and yet are difficult and vice versa. In general, if not impacted should be equal in removal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
