How can moles be removed?

I have numerous flat moles on my face, neck and chest areas and new moles are continuing to form. I am over the age of 25 and I am interested in having the moles removed and also in finding out how to prevent new moles from forming. What do you recommend?

Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon 's  Response
You can get your moles removed by a dermatologist or a Plastic surgeon. generally, small pedunculated moles may be removed with a instrument called as Radio cautery which is available with Dermatologist. Larger sized moles can be removed with an elliptical incision and suturing the wound with very fine suture material (Cosmetic suturing). There is no way you can prevent appearance of new moles as mostly they genetically controlled.
