: I was told by my dermatologist that there would be scarring even with laser removal of facial moles. He also said that it would be considered cosmetic surgery, so our insurance wouldn't pay for it. Do you recommend that i get them removed, or should i just keep badly disguising them forever? Please help! E-mail please...thanx. I have about four that I want to have removed.
I would suggest having the moles removed. I had several moles removed from my face about a year ago,
and there is very minimal scarring that has already mostly disappeared. For those mostly you have
to find a plastic surgeon which is usually not covered by health insurance. But if you go to your
regular dermatologist or doctor and they take a biopsy. If there is anything in question about the
mole the insurance may cover the removal. Ask your dr. more and for recommendations.
