I would like them removed without scarring or facial discoloration, distortions, and I do not believe a regular dermatologist should perform the procedure. Who should evaluate me? A cosmetic surgeon or a plastic surgeon? The good thing is these are mostly benign moles. Whether or not there is scarring depends on how deep these moles are. Moles that are mostly superficial can be shaved off and the root frozen or lasered to prevent recurrence. As long as damage to the dermis is minimized the scarring should be minimal. A plastic surgeon or dermatologist should be able to help you. You cannot remove lesions from the skin without creating some kind of scar. The way you scar depends on your skin color more darkly pigmented people tend to get some browning of their scars and your genetics do other people in your family make poor scars?
