Pediatric Mole Removal
Moles can grow anywhere on the body, with most being inconspicuous and non-threatening. However, there are some types of moles that can grow large and be disfiguring. There are also moles that are more prone to becoming cancerous. If your child has moles on the face that are disfiguring or other mole types that are diagnosed as possibly pre-cancerous, it may be best to have them removed in childhood. Dr. Joseph Rousso offers exceptional pediatric mole removal for his patients at his clinic in New York City.
When undergoing any type of pediatric facial plastic surgery, you want the best surgeon to perform your procedure. Dr. Rousso is one of the best in his field, with a double board certification as a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and extensive surgical work with children with deformities. His experience and expertise ensure that if your child needs a mole removed for aesthetic or health reasons, it is completed using the most advanced techniques to reduce scarring and restore the tissue area.
Nevus Surgery in Children
There may be a mole, or nevus, especially on the face, that can be disfiguring and impede development. While moles can be removed by any surgeon and some dermatologists, they do not have the skills necessary to prevent a noticeable surgical site. Large mole removal can displace extensive amounts of skin and tissue, leaving a scar in its place. Dr. Rousso uses his expertise as a reconstructive surgeon to carefully remove the mole and repair the damage to the skin and tissue. This can involve grafting techniques and other methods to repair the area to hide the evidence of surgery.
