It is very noticeable part of the face so patient decided to get the mole removed. She wanted the mole removal surgery with the best possible result means with the minimum scar formation.


As you can see in the picture before operation, an ellipse around the mole is marked. The direction of the ellipse is kept parallel to the natural (naso labial) crease. After excision of the mole in an elliptical fashion under local anesthesia, the margins were approximated and sutured in two layers with very fine threads using magnification. The stitches were removed earlier to avoid scar marks. Proper after care and follow up was done to further minimize the scar formation.  The final result is visible as no scar formation at all.
