Mole Removal in Vancouver
Moles are very common and can appear at any age. They can be flat or raised, and can range to skin coloured to darker in appearance. In most cases, moles are benign and do not necessitate removal. However, many people find they can be an inconvenience (for example they can rub against clothing), or feel them to be aesthetically unappealing. The expertise and skills of our surgeons allow them to proficiently assess each mole, and if desired, they can safely and effectively remove them. This can typically be performed in a single office visit under local anaesthesia.
Techniques used by our surgeons:
Surgical excision: The surgeon will surgically remove the entire mole (including its roots underneath the surface of the skin) and neatly suture the skin closed.
Surgical shave: The elevated portion of the mole is shaved off in a precise manner to leave it flush with the surrounding skin, thus reducing the prominence of the raised mole. There is a small chance of recurrence of the mole with this technique as the roots are not removed, but the scar is nearly imperceptible.
The Surgical Experience
Short Scar facelift procedures are performed under local anaesthesia with twilight sedation as an outpatient procedure in an accredited surgical facility. The length of the surgery will vary, but it generally takes between 2-3 hours. This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure. After surgery, patients will be dressed with a head wrap that is removed 2 days after surgery. There will be mild bruising and swelling of the face and neck. This will gradually improve within a few days. The scars associated with the short scar lift are well hidden within the curvatures of the ear and will fade over time. Most patients will need 1 week off work following surgery, and can resume full activities after 6 weeks.
Each facelift surgery is unique and will be tailored to each patient. Most patients can expect to pay $8,500-$13,000.

Non non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX®, injectable fillers, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels can assist in smoothing out surface wrinkles, improve fine lines and add facial volume. However, patients with loose skin, drooping jowls or a sagging neck will need to consider surgery if they want these features improved.
No. Short Scar facelift procedures are performed under local anaesthesia with twilight sedation, so the patient is comfortable throughout the operation, without the risk of general anaesthesia. All procedures are performed in an accredited non-hospital facility.
