What to Expect Before, During, and After the Procedure

Before the mole or skin tag removal procedure, we require patients to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors. This initial step allows us to thoroughly examine the spots, discuss treatment options, and address any concerns you may have. Particularly for moles in the facial region, we understand the importance of minimising scarring, and our experienced team will take the utmost care to ensure the best possible cosmetic outcome.

During the procedure, you will receive local anaesthesia to ensure your comfort. Our skilled medical professionals will skilfully remove the moles or skin tags, while you remain awake and relaxed. After the procedure, you may experience slight pain or discomfort, and minor scarring may occur. However, rest assured that these effects are temporary and usually resolve within two weeks. A follow-up consultation will be scheduled to remove sutures and monitor the healing progress to ensure optimal results.

Suitability for All Skin Types

Our mole and skin tag removal procedures are suitable for all skin types. Regardless of your skin tone or texture, our doctors possess the knowledge and skills to address your specific needs with precision and care.

Procedure Duration

The duration of the mole and skin tag removal procedure typically ranges from 20 to 30 minutes. However, the exact time may vary depending on the type and location of the mole or skin tag being removed. Rest assured that our doctors prioritise both efficiency and meticulous attention to detail to deliver the best possible results.

Skin Cancer Examination

At The Community Doctor, your health and well-being is of paramount importance to us. Therefore, during the mole removal procedure, our doctors will carefully examine the skin to identify any potential signs of skin cancer. We offer various methods of examination, including dermascope spot check, full body mole mapping, and skin cancer check, ensuring a comprehensive assessment for your peace of mind. To learn more about our skin checks, please visit our dedicated skin checks service page.

Cost and Medicare Rebatable

The cost of mole and skin tag removal varies depending on the method of removal and the location of the mole or skin tag, and certain procedures may be eligible for Medicare rebates. Our dedicated staff will provide you with detailed information about the associated costs during your consultation.

Booking Your Mole and Skin Tag Consultation

To ensure the best care and outcomes, a GP consultation is required before booking a mole removal procedure. This initial consultation allows our doctors to assess your specific needs, discuss treatment options, and develop an individualised plan tailored to your requirements. Following the GP consultation, a separate booking will be scheduled for the mole or skin tag removal procedure.

To make the booking process more convenient for our patients, we offer an online booking option through HotDoc. This streamlined approach allows you to easily find and select the “Mole and Skin Tag Consultation” service, ensuring a hassle-free experience.

Can Moles Grow Back After Removal?

While it is possible for moles to grow back if some cells from the mole were left after the initial removal, it is highly unlikely. For individuals seeking assurance, our knowledgeable skin doctors can provide information about surgical methods of mole removal, which may further minimise the chances of regrowth.

At The Community Doctor, we are dedicated to helping you achieve your desired results in a safe and comfortable environment. Our team of skilled doctors combines extensive experience with a patient-centred approach to ensure your satisfaction and well-being throughout the mole and skin tag removal process.
