Excision is really the only way to go with congenital hairy moles.
The scar from surgically removing a large congenital hairy mole is almost always better looking that the ugly mole. It is done under local and easy to undergo. Follow up about 3 months later with a little dermabrasion to help fade the scar is recommended.
Nevus on the face
You should consider a surgeon who performs excision of skin lesions on the face and performs flap closures routinely; You will definitely require a local flap to get the results that you are desiring.
For Best Results--See an expert: Dermatologic Surgeon
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. Best, Dr. Emer.
