It is the removal of a mole with simple shaving without stitches. The surgeon will use a scalpel to shave off the mole slightly below the skin level. Then an electronic device with a tiny electrode at the end is used to perform electrosurgical feathering. The feathering will blend the wound edges with the surrounding skin, which minimizes the appearance of excision.
This is a deep procedure than a shave excision. The surgeon will map the mole, cleans the area either with alcohol or with other suitable material. Then the site will be numbed by using lidocaine or any additional anesthetic. The surgeon will cut the entire mole with a scalpel, below the subcutaneous fat layer. The surgeon will stitch the incision close and examine the mole for cancer cells.
You might experience faintness or dizziness. It might take a few days or weeks to heal the wound. Usually, the patient doesn’t feel pain, but the itching might be present.
Shaving excision leaves the skin pink for a while with a little scarring. Wound in a surgical incision can be circular if it is more extensive.
Rarely, there are cases of infections, nerve damage, so it is imperative to choose a highly qualified professional.
Healing time after the procedure depends on the individual as young people heal faster than the older. A larger incision will take a longer time to heal. Generally, a mole removal scar takes at least two to three weeks to heal.
The patient should adopt some methods to reduce scarring, but initial care is essential to prevent infection.
You should keep on applying a layer of petrolatum and bandage the wound. Use water or diluted hydrogen peroxide to clean the wound. Change the bandage once or twice a day.
The sun affects wound healing. The scar may darken and become discolored after sun exposure. Use a substantial sunscreen to cover the spot.
Stretching the scar can longer the healing time. The wounds heal quickly when they are moist and clean.
After two weeks of the surgery, when the sutures are gone, massage the scar. Use two fingers to rub the circle on the scar, and then rub horizontally and vertically along the scar, gradually increasing the pressure.
It would be best to wear a polyurethane dressing, as these pads are moist enough to help with scar healing.
Results are usually permanent if care is taken. The products’ longevity also depends if a qualified, skilled, and board-certified surgeon performs this procedure.
