Hello and thank you for your question. Mole removal on the face tends to be tricky but the best way to ensure you have as minimal scarring as possible is good care to the scar after surgery. A shave is typically the easiest for a raised mole. It will leave a small pink area the size of the mole and will fade overtime.

It is tough to predict scarring after mole removal. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a formal evaluation. This can be improved or removed with lasers, radiowave or shave. See an expert to minimize scarring. I recommend silicone gel with growth factors as part of after care. Best, Dr. Emer
