Can my Flat Mole on the Eye Waterline Be Removed? (photo)

Hi, I was wondering whether or not this mole can be removed or not? It sits right at the edge of my eye bordering the waterline. I'm not sure whether I can say it is on my waterline or not...but it is very close to my eye. I was wondering if there are any procedures available to remove it with minimal or no scarring...and if possible, can you please explain the procedure. Thanks.

Your mole is near or at the gray line of the lower lid. Any good plastic surgeon can remove it. Closure is most probably as a vertical line.The scar would be not noticeable.

I would highly recommend that you see a plastic surgeon or oculoplastic surgeon for a consult and removal.

Hello,

Yes, this looks like something that can be done without stitches in the office as well.

Your dark little mole can be removed under local anesthesia easily and quickly without any big ugly scarring. Estimate is $350 and so worth it. Sincerely,
