: : 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.

>>First of all, why do you want them removed and why are you disguising them? If it's for medical reasons, than insurance should cover it. Otherwise, try accepting them as a unique, personal, & not-so-bad feature. I have several facial moles, acquired throughout my life. My largest, and favorite, is about the diameter of a pencil eraser and is on my eyebrow. I've always cherished it as my personal trademark; an identifying feature. I've considered having some removed; aiming for smooth, flawless, even tone skin, but decided instead to accept them as a part of me & my inheritance (along with a few freckles) :-)
