Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs mole/skin tag removal for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.

Many people have moles that they have had for years. Sometimes, they become larger with age, but are not bothersome when combing or shaving. Other moles enlarge, and may be found to be suspicious by your dermatologist. When it comes to facial moles, most individuals who are interested in having them removed are also interested in obtaining a good cosmetic result.

Anytime an incision is made anywhere on the body, there is a chance of a visible scar. Of course, as a facial plastic surgeon, it is Dr. Majmundar’s goal to make that facial scar look as nice as possible. One advantage of trading a mole for a small scar is that scars are easily covered with makeup and other cosmetics, whereas moles are difficult to cover.

If the mole is darkly pigmented, or has hair follicles, it usually means the mole goes deep into the skin and the best way to remove it is surgically, usually requiring a couple of stitches. Sometimes the mole, such as a skin tag, can be shaved at the base, minimizing any scarring. However, if shaving is performed on a dark or hairy mole, there is a large chance that the mole may come back, requiring a second procedure. Discussing the best procedure for you with Dr. Majmundar will help minimize the chances of scarring and the necessity of a second procedure.

Anytime a mole is removed, it is automatically sent to a pathology lab for testing to make sure it is not cancerous. Please note that this will be billed to your insurance company.

You may expect some minor bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort, easily treated with Tylenol. The fine skin stitches are removed in seven days at your follow-up appointment, and the results of the pathology test will be discussed at that time, if available.

Practice Update re: COVID-19 situation

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the corona virus, we have taken the following additional measures to protect our patients:

  1. Until April 30, 2020, we are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for all new patients.
  2. Our teams are receiving ongoing briefings, trainings, and enhanced operating protocols as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
  3. We are introducing the “No ‘waiting’ waiting room”. In general, we are reducing waiting times; but also, as a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our larger size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing and the number of individuals in each reception area.
  4. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  5. We are asking all patients and staff members to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer when entering the office and exam rooms.
  6. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we are not subject to actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  7. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until mid-April.
  8. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the corona virus
  9. We are instructing staff to welcome our patients with a nod or wave instead of fist bumps, elbow bumps, or handshakes.
  10. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please cancel and reschedule your appointments. We advise you to call your family doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Also, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the corona virus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from the time of your visit.
  11. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
