Nevi, or moles, are one of the most common skin growths. While some can become cancerous, most are benign and do not pose a health threat. However, large facial moles can be distracting and a source of embarrassment for children. Expert facial surgeon Dr. Lesley Rabach at LM Medical NYC offers pediatric mole removal at our medical facility in Manhattan.

There are few elective cosmetic surgeries performed on children, and with good reason. In most cases, the risk of an elective surgery outweighs the benefit for a child. With pediatric mole removal, there is very little risk, but the benefits are high. If a large mole is impacting the child’s appearance or is a type that is at high risk for melanoma, it can be worth having the nevus removed. The procedure is usually very quick, and the child can go home the same day.

Benefits of Mole Removal Plastic Surgery

Most doctors, surgeons and dermatologists can remove an unwanted mole. If the mole is in an inconspicuous area, local anesthesia and a scalpel may be all that is needed by a doctor to remove the nevus. However, facial moles, especially larger growths, should be removed through plastic surgery to reduce the chance of a visible scar.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is double board certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. She is one of the top surgeons in her field. If your child has a facial mole that poses a health risk or will impact the child’s appearance, Dr. Lesley can provide removal. Using advanced techniques, she can minimize scarring and perform skin grafts or other procedures if necessary.

If your child has a suspicious or large mole you want removed, contact us at LM Medical NYC today to schedule your appointment at our clinic in Greenwich Village. We have both a board certified dermatologist and a double board certified facial plastic surgeon under one roof.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
