Mole Removal Surgery | Part 5 [After 1 year]


Hi guys! If you are a new reader here at Anonymous Reviews, you may not know about the mole removal surgery I had done a year ago. I removed 2 moles, a bigger one (around size 6mm) on my cheek and another one (around 4mm) on my right arm. I got them removed on August 1st 2012, so it has been a little longer than a year now.

I will link the previous parts below so check them out if you are interested about the price/pain/recovery process.

Lets do a short recap on the recovery process during the past year,

Fast forward a whole year later...




I have absolutely nothing on my face, no concealer, no foundation. As you can see, the scar has almost faded completely. I would never have believe if someone told me that a mole a size of a raisin exist there a year ago. I am blown away by the results, even looking at it now I am really surprised how such a deep scar is able to heal so nicely.

 Now for the arm,




.

And a year later...


It is still visible, just because the arm area is highly prone to scarring and even keloids. I got 1 steriod jab during the fourth month (doctor's recommendation) and that was it. The bump is 95% flat now but there is some pigmentation which will slowly fade due time. But the scar does not bother me at all and nobody seem to notice it as well.

That is all guys! I hope this provides you some information if you are thinking of getting any moles removed. I highly recommend getting the large ones (larger than 6mm) removed as large moles can develop into melanoma (cancerous moles) in future.

Again, please go to a certified cosmetic surgeon and not a beautician just so you know you are in good hands and doctors can send the extracted moles to do biopsy to check if the moles are 'safe' (you will get the report).

Moles have to be removed from their roots completely to prevent them from growing back, plus removing their roots reduces the danger of developing melanoma. I know some beauticians uses acid/wart removal cream to dissolve the mole which is not safe at all because the moles are still there even though they are not visible. Bigger moles have deeper roots so laser is the best choice to go.


Feel free to email me if you have any questions regarding mole removal, I will try my best to answer them. Cheers!

  3. If you can get scars on the arm be careful of the back... easiest place to get raised scars are on the back for some reason.. and shoulders.
