Best Doctor for Mole Removal on the Eyelash Area?

I have a mole on my right upper eyelid. It lies in the eyelid right between the lashes. I have had it since I was a child, I am 26 now and it is bigger and somewhat noticeable.
Eyelash mole removal in Los Angeles
This mole is relatively straightforward to remove and requires only local anesthesia. I would recommend that your physician have it evaluated as a specimen by a pathologist.
I recommend seeing a board certified plastic surgeon for this lesion. It's important to preserve the hair along the area and to achieve as best as possible cosmetic results.

Dermatologists are experts for mole removal
While many types of physicians could safely remove this lesion with minimal scarring, you would be well served in visiting a dermatologist. Dermatologists are the experts on skin, hair, and nails, and routinely perform this type of medical service every day.
This lesion could likely be removed from the lid with minimal scarring, depending on the size of its base (how much is actually attached at the base to the eyelid). It's a bit difficult to tell from the angle of the photo, but the base of the lesion may involve the eyelashes. In this case, it would be best to shave the lesion so the eyelashes have the best chance to regrow without removing their roots. You would have a small scar, though...there's no way around that.
