Often clients have visited their GP only to be advised that their mole is ‘not sinister’ or it is a cosmetic lesion. As such, they cannot be removed on the NHS or the mole removal will leave an unsightly scar, worse than the original mole.

Our team will assess the best method of mole removal often using a polarised light (dermatoscope) to help identify the type and depth of the mole. This revolutionary device makes assessment of moles much more accurate and helps determine the best procedure for removal.

Same Day Service

At Olelo, we offer same day mole removal treatment, which means just one appointment and the procedure is done there and then.

‘See and treat’ same-day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects, giving their consent to proceed on that knowledge.

As part of the consultation, we will discuss the risks, benefits and likely results, as part of the full informed consent process. Pictures may also be taken as part of the assessment, these are kept as part of a confidential record.

Downtime following surgery for mole removal is usually minimal and a dressing is applied to keep the wound clean for a few days.

Mole Removal Treatments

  • Mole consultation
  • Shave Excision surgery
  • Ellipse excision surgery
  • Same-day surgery – one-stop treatment

Mole removal consultations are only £50. This is a consultation with our doctor to assess the moles and determine what type of treatment can be conducted.

Please note that this is not a full-body mole assessment. If we proceed to a ‘same day treatment’, this fee is included in the total cost of treatment.

  • A single mole removal treatment can be conducted in under 30 minutes, depending on the type of treatment needed.
  • Shave Excision surgery is best for raised moles, is painless and requires no stitches. There is very little scarring.
  • Ellipse excision surgery is best for flat or suspicious moles. It requires taking away an ellipse of skin and using sutures. It takes roughly 30 mins per mole removal but may take longer if the mole is large or you have more than 1 mole.

After the mole has been removed, your doctor or nurse will apply a dressing that is designed to remain in place for 7 days. They will also confirm whether your stitches are dissolving or non-dissolving.

Steri-strips are often applied at the time of surgery and we ask that you replace these twice a week for 3 weeks.

The wound slowly heals over two weeks, leaving a faint linear scar. Vit E / Bio-oil / Dermatix cream massage is recommended daily, after 2 weeks to reduce the appearance of the scar and minimise skin tightness.

Always consult your GP if there is increasing pain, redness or any discharge.

Prices above are to be used as a guide to mole removal costs. The exact price can only be determined once the doctor has examined the mole and given advice as to the best way of removal. Larger and more complex moles are likely to incur a higher fee.

Consultation

Our team of doctors will assess each person and advise how best to treat their specific moles. Often we recommend simple shave excisions but more complex mole removals will require elliptical surgical excision.

You will be advised on the day whether it will be possible to remove the mole on the same day or not. Its important to remember that this is not a full-body mole check.

Histology

Peace of mind.

Most moles are benign but as part of good medical practice, we always send your tissue for laboratory analysis. In this way, we can confirm that your mole had no suspicious features that would warrant further review.

We work with well-established labs, with a track record of high standards in clinical practice.

There is no mark up for the service and charges are kept to a minimum.

Some patients wish to proceed without histological analysis. We recognise the extra cost incurred but unfortunately, as part of our commitment to deliver high-quality care, we will not be able to undertake mole removal without ensuring that the removed tissue is always examined.

Mole Removal Aftercare

Shave excisions

Downtime is minimal.

Immediately after mole removal, we apply a dressing and ask that you keep the dressing in place for 48 hrs.

As the skin over the mole begins to heal, it may look a little red for 3-4 weeks and then begins to settle over a few months.

We recommend applying Vaseline for the first 2 weeks after surgery. Then please massage the surgery site from week 3, with bio-oil or vitamin E oil or dermatix, daily for the first 2 months.

Ellipse excisions

Your doctor or nurse will apply a dressing which is designed to remain in place for 7 days. They will also confirm whether your stitches are dissolving or non dissolving.

Steri-strips are often applied at the time of surgery and we ask that you replace these twice a week for 3 weeks.

The wound slowly heals over 2 weeks, leaving a faint linear scar. A Vit E / Bio oil / Dermatix cream massage is recommended daily, after 2 weeks.

Always consult your GP if there is increasing pain, redness or any discharge.

Creams

We recommend massaging the mole removal site with bio-oil, Vitamin E oil or Dermatix cream daily for the first 2 months, but do not start massaging until week 3.
