Almost all facial or eyelid moles, cysts, skin tags, xanthelasma, milia and growths are removed under local anesthesia in Dr. Chandler’s office surgical suite.

Oral sedation can be used if patients are very anxious prior to their procedures. Dr. Chandler prides himself on being especially gentle and understands that any surgical procedure on the face can be a daunting experience. Typically there is little to no pain after mole removal though there can be some itching as the area heals. Dr. Chandler does not “freeze” or “laser” off moles or skin tags.

Are there Scars After Mole Removal?
Dr. Chandler always strives to minimize any scarring after mole removal. Each mole and every person’s face/skin is different. The location and size of the mole determine scarring variation. Most moles rise above the skin, and after removal, the skin usually becomes smooth/flat in that area. This smoothness allows any post-removal scar or pigment change to blend well with the surrounding skin. Dr. Chandler discusses and reviews expectations of scarring and post-operative appearance with each patient during your consultation.
What is a Xanthelasma? Can Xanthelasmas be Removed?
Xanthelasma (“zan-the-las-mas”) are yellow/white cholesterol deposits in the skin that are located in the inner corner of one or more eyelids. Xanthelasmas do not harm the skin or the eyes and they cause no pain. Doctors do not understand precisely why these deposits form in this exact location on the face. Whatever the scientific reason for these deposits, they can be unpleasant looking and understandably many people want them gone. Chemical peels and laser treatments offer very limited improvement, can be dangerous near the eyes, and typically give less than ideal results. Surgical mole removal is the definitive treatment for Xanthelasmas. Dr. Chandler uses a delicate, precise technique and has specialized in this type of plastic surgery throughout his career. Dr. Chandler always strives to leave the most minimal of scarring which can require very great precision in Xanthelasma removal cases. Xanthelasmas can recur unfortunately, but after surgical removal this typically takes years. Health insurance companies do not deem xanthelasma removal as a medically necessary procedure because doctors remove them solely to improve appearance.

Cost of Mole Removal: Is It Covered by Insurance?
Face moles, growths, and skin tags can vary greatly in size, location, and difficulty in removal. You can have most removed and treated in the office with local anesthesia. Health insurance does not pay for the cosmetic removal of moles or growths on the face.
The cost starts at $750-$6000 and these fees can vary depending on the number of growths and the time and expertise required to remove them. Growths on exposed areas of the face can be challenging to remove, but Dr. Chandler always strives to removes facial moles and growths with the minimal scarring and he has years of experience.
Can Moles, Cysts or Growths be Removed from the Edge of the Eyelid or if they are even Touching the Eyeball?

Dr. Chandler has a reputation for removing facial moles precisely, especially near the edge of the eyelids, touching the eyeball, or around other delicate structures.
