I would highly recommend that you see a board certified facial plastic surgeon for an evaluation and possible treatment.

Most of the time exsision and repair with small sutures is the best choice for moles of the lip area. This involves local anesthesia and will leave a hairline scar in most people.

Although the mole may able to be "shaved off" this may leave a depressed scar which is hard to hide.
