From your photo, it does in fact look like you might be able to partially remove this lesion.  I recommend consultation with a board-certified dermatologic surgeon.

You certainly can get just part of the mole removed.  The fact that it is growing and changing is of some concern and removing part of it for a biopsy is probably a good idea.  

Best of luck

Moles can be improved with lasers, radiowave and shave. I suggest seeing an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.

Indeed you can remove all or any part of a mole. Best to see an expert cosmetic physician such as a dermatologist to review your options.
