Having Facial moles

Hello, I am a 26 yr old female and have 5 moles on my face. 2 raised lesions (one on my left eyelid, and the other below my right nostril), and 3 flat moles on my left cheek. I am meaning to get them removed; and have questions pertaining to this. - What method should I opt for in removing the raised lesions, keeping in mind that I am being married in a couple of months? - What is the healing time? - Would there be any scars? - What are the post mole removal care procedures? Not sure if this would help, but 2 years ago, I had a tumor in my stomach that burst and was rushed to the hospital for an emergency operation. Thanks, Sandra

MOLES : Let the Plastic Surgeon decide as to how he would like to remove it.Surgical removal is the best and if necessary a biopsy can also be done.It is done in the day care centre or in an operating room.Small internal stitches or removable stitches are applied, no dressings are needed and you could be back to work same day.Scars look best in 4-6 months time.If you are getting married earlier then you could use some masking cream to dubdue the scar colour .Have a Happy Married Life.
