Dr. Maria Tetelbaum provides cosmetic mole removal. She will first consult with you to determine your individual goals and needs, and then develop the best plan for your mole removal procedure.
A proper consultation is required to determine if the mole is benign or cancerous before deciding which method to choose. If determined to be benign, Dr. Tetelbaum can expertly remove your mole under local anesthesia in her office under sterile conditions.
A benign mole can be a source of embarrassment and can be easily removed in a way that leaves minimal, and sometimes no scarring.
Following your mole removal treatment, an antiseptic ointment, bandage and/or suture will be applied to the treated area. A follow-up visit may be required to remove any sutures if used.
If you have an unwanted mole that you would like to remove, booking a consultation with Dr. Maria Tetelbaum would be your first step!
Moles are skin growths composed of a cluster of cells that are either skin coloured or pigmented (tan or dark colour). They are usually round growths that can appear anywhere on your face, neck, chest, shoulder, back, hands, arms and legs.
The amount of moles you develop is dependant on your genes, sun exposure, and number of sunburns.
A benign mole (ie. non-cancerous) usually has a symmetrical shape, even borders, one even colour, and is usually smaller than a pencil eraser's end.
Moles are not necessarily a health risk but should be checked regularly for changes in size, colour or texture which can indicate cancerous or precancerous cells.
Consultations are complimentary (no charge to patient).
Cosmetic mole removal procedures are not covered by OHIP.
$200 per mole/lesion to be removed.
