mole removal Dubai


Moles, also known as melanocytic nevi, are common skin growths that appear in any part of the body, including the face, neck, and arms. Mole removal in Dubai is a common cosmetic procedure to remove these growths. Moles are usually brown or black and made up of melanocyte clusters, but they can also be flesh-colored or yellowish. Melanocytes are responsible for melanin production, a natural pigment that gives color to the skin. Melanocyte cells are spread throughout the skin to produce melanin and maintain skin color, but when they grow in clusters, the result is a mole formation. Most moles do not cause any problem or discomfort, except the cancerous ones, which can prove fatal.

Common Types of Moles

Moles can grow alone or in groups. Most moles appear by 25 years of age, and it is normal to have up to 40 moles. The 3 types of commonly seen moles are:

Congenital moles – The moles present by birth or develop in the first 2 years are called congenital nevi. They are oval or round-shaped raised patches. Generally harmless, but if they grow beyond 8mm in diameter or 2-3 inches long, it’s best to consult an expert. 

Dysplastic moles – They are bigger and flatter than regular ones, irregularly shaped and unevenly coloured. Also known as atypical moles, they are darker inwards and lighter outwards. A person with more than 4 dysplastic moles indicates a higher chance of developing melanoma, a type of skin cancer.

Acquired moles – They are the ones that appear during the first 20-30 years of life. In most cases, an acquired nevus is benign, but those who develop more than 50 such nevi may likely have melanoma.

Mole Removal Procedure

Mole removal is a quick procedure performed on an outpatient basis. For a pain-free procedure, a local anaesthetic is administered. As per the consultation, Dr Demetrius uses one of the two methods of mole removal in his clinic in Dubai:

Surgical excision – This procedure cuts out the mole and some area around it, then closes with sutures.

Surgical shave – This method is used for smaller moles, as it shaves the mole and clears the area using a scalpel. 

Post-surgery, there will be a scar, which will fade eventually. The doctor will prescribe some painkillers to make you comfortable.
