Should I shave a mole from my face??

I have a pencil eraser sized mole on the far left side of my cheek that is slightly raised. I went to the doctor today and she made me feel silly for wanting to remove it because it is benign. I know that it might be a little vain to want it removed but it really bugs me ever since I had my first child. She said there is two options to removing the mole. Cutting it out or shaving the top off. She also said that both ways could leave a very bad scar and potentially make the mole look worse. I went into the appointment with a lot of hope and left feeling terrible, like there was no help for me. Can anybody give me some advice??
