What Are Moles?

Moles are a form of skin growth appearing as small, brown, black, or skin tone spots anywhere on the body. Clusters of pigmented cells called melanocytes cause them.

Most moles or nevi appear during a person’s childhood and adolescence and often run in families. Some may have as many as 10 to 40 moles that change in appearance or fade away with time.

It’s the moles that appear after about 35 that require medical evaluation and possibly a biopsy. Sun exposure can trigger skin moles, which is why those exposed more to UV light tend to have more moles. 

While protecting your skin from the sun can help reduce the number of moles, there is always the chance of moles occurring in sun-protected areas too. Consult Dr. Jacobsen if a mole appears later in your life or starts changing size, shape, or color. 

Normal moles are usually smaller than a pencil eraser head. Anything more significant is better checked. And while moles typically have distinct margins and symmetrical appearance, consult Dr.Jacobsen if it has indistinct margins or is asymmetrical.


Why Remove Moles?

There’s no need to worry if you have a mole because moles are generally harmless. It’s only in rare cases that they turn cancerous. However, Dr. Jacobsen does not recommend neglecting moles.

You need to keep monitoring them and any other pigmented patches you have. It will help detect the early signs of skin cancer, typically malignant melanoma.

So the main reason to remove some moles will be for health reasons. For example, Dr. Jacobsen will remove suspicious-looking moles and send them for a biopsy. If the biopsy result proves that it is cancerous, removing it can help stop and prevent possible cancer.

Then again, there is another reason to remove moles, which is for aesthetic or cosmetic reasons. Some moles may make a person look better, but it’s not all the time. With moles appearing anywhere on the body, there is always the chance of them being in the wrong places. In this case, it often makes the moles look ugly and undesirable, giving another good reason for mole removal.

The third reason for mole removal is that it may cause discomfort with its constant rubbing against something. For example, moles on the neck region may get uncomfortable with continuous rubbing and friction when putting on or removing clothes. Even moles on the cheeks may get intrusive and irritating for a man while shaving. In this case, removing it may be a solution to all the discomfort.


About Our Mole Removal Procedure

We have a simple mole removal procedure consisting of a simple surgery. Dr. Jacobsen will first describe the procedure to you to ensure you fully understand it and are ready to proceed with it. We are always prepared to answer any queries you may have about the procedure.

While we happily remove benign moles, we first inspect them for possible cancer signs and send anything suspicious for a biopsy.

The procedure starts by us first cleaning and numbing the region with a local anesthetic. We then either surgically shave or excise the mole depending on its size and place.

In the case of surgical excision, Dr. Jacobsen uses a scalpel or sharp, circular blade to extract the mole and some surrounding healthy skin. He then stitches the cut skin closed. A deeper excision may be necessary if the mole has penetrated rather deeply into the skin.

Dr. Jacobsen does a surgical shave for smaller moles by using a small blade to shave off the mole and some tissues underneath it. There usually isn’t a need for any stitches.

We may also opt to use either cryotherapy or cauterization to remove some moles. Whichever procedure, we apply a bandage on the area to speed up the recovery process.

Keeping the region as clean as possible after the mole removal procedure is essential to avoid risks of mole removal like a potential infection. Dr. Jacobsen will clearly show you how to keep the area clean, covered, and moist properly. 

Over-the-counter medication is usually all you require to treat any discomfort you may feel. Feel free to call us if you have any questions about the recovery process. We are always happy to answer your questions.

Never try removing a mole on your own. You not only invite the risk of an infection, but you also risk missing cancer detection if you don’t send suspicious moles for a biopsy.

Common moles do not come back after proper mole removal. However, moles with cancer cells may return. Dr. Jacobsen recommends keeping watch on the area and informing him if you notice any changes.

  • Dr. J has an amazing personality and the surgery was quick, painless, and perfect. I didn’t even need to take any painkillers after I woke up. I look and feel so much better. Would highly recommend him to anyone considering surgery. The staff was also incredibly easy to work with. All around great office energy and the medical staff at the surgery center are so sweet.

  • I’m 9 days post op and I’m very happy with the results so far (still healing). Dr. J is easy to talk to. I went in for a consult and was able to schedule the procedure for the very next week. All went very well. I was so afraid to remove the bandages - I was expecting a bloody/bruised mess. I was pleasantly surprised to see tiny incisions with no scabbing or bruising. I’m very impressed.

  • Enjoyed meeting and working with Dr. J. I had an eye lift and it was a pleasant experience from start to finish. Dr. J’s bed side manner is very personable and genuine. He explained everything step by step and made the procedure very painless. Even though I’m from Minnesota - I will be coming to Dr. J for any future cosmetic surgical needs. I cannot recommend Dr. J enough.

  • What a brilliant human! I’m so thankful for finding this amazing genius. I’ve struggled with skin sagging since my weight loss surgery. My arms were my nemesis, I have other skin removal surgeries to have in the future but my arms were really my starting point and I had went to try to freeze the remaining stubborn fat and skin to hopefully shrink. Yeah that didn’t work. Then I found this guy, he’s awesome, his staff is awesome and professional and I cannot say thank you enough to this life changing leap into the rest of my journey. I truly and blessed to have had the opportunity to be able to experience the joy he has for his craft. He has truly changed my life. Thank you Dr. J.

  • I, Theresa Buschbacher, prepared this review and submitted it on my husband,s account. Superb, Excellent, Caring, Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Experienced, these are all descriptive terms that one must earn. Dr.J has completely filled the requirements of each and every of these terms and they can all equally be applied to him. His knowledge immediately puts you at ease (and when what he says will happen does actually happen, you get a big smile inside and you know you have a relationship with an excellent doctor)! Now for the support staff, they relate to you and express a genuine concern for what you are going through. They work with you and put you at ease while accomplishing what is needed for the “business end” of the doctor’s office. This is a WINNER!!

  • This will be a long review but worth the read! I'm beyond impressed with the overall quality, cleanliness, prices, customer service and results. First impressions, their branding of their classy theme provided an elegance that I felt right at home. I felt like a king who was going to get the best treatment! Secondly, very clean... I mean this place was immaculate! You can tell these folks worked hard to build their business and put in the work to upkeep it! As a business owner myself I applaud the way they conduct their business and never loose their family values, that caring, compassionate, family oriented value that most businesses start off with but loose over time. I can tell that money is not their passion. Their customers results are, the smiles and cries one has when they see their results. I was terrified of anesthesia, and when I expressed my concerns about my PTSD the surgeon, anesthesiologist and staff all took the time to sit with me and listen to me then proceed with a break down of how well they were going to take care of me and make sure I have the best experience possible. In which I certainly did! And best part I didn't wake up out of it, scared, panicking or anything like that. I was a little tired of course, but I went live for my fans soon as I got in the car. I felt comfortable the entire time I was waiting and when my nerves were really high I was honest and told them. They put in the extra love to make sure I was ok. When I went back and they gave me whatever magical cocktail, I felt as my procedure was 4 seconds. I didn't wake up during surgery, didn't hear anything nor wake up in pain! Everything they could have possibly done right they absolutely did! I felt safe too. And when I had questions after they were great about responding and following up. The cleanliness was great, and they took all precautions during this time of COVID-19. I knew the day I met Dr. Jacobson during my consultation that he had to be my surgeon! I hope this review helps viewers make that final decision on choosing Dr. Jacobson as their surgeon and if anyone has questions you are more then welcome to ask and I will answer to the best of my abilities? Thank you Dr. Jacobson and your staff?? my results are incredible! And I'm not even fully healed yet and I can't stop staring at my chest! It's a dream come true and it wouldn't have be possible without you and your staff. God bless!

  • Dr J is absolutely brilliant. His office and staff are out of this world and his demeanor is so friendly and up beat. He makes you feel like you are in the best possible hands... And you are! The Surgeon I met with before I saw Dr J told me I would need a general anesthetic for my surgery and likely a skin graft. I was terrified. Went to Dr J for a second opinion and he was totally nonchalant about what needed to be done. He did it a week later in his office with just some local freezing and it was amazing! No problems at all. I would never see another Dr for surgery. Dr J is truly above the rest! Even his peers give him awards. His office is full of them! Big hugs to him and his staff for turning this in a happy ending from a scary start.
