Mole Removal in Los Angeles


Patients who have pigmented or brown moles that are changing may require surgical biopsy to determine whether these moles are problematic.  On areas of the face, chest, and back, biopsy scars can become thickened, discolored, widened, and hypopigmented.  In the Los Angeles area, dermatologists and physicians refer difficult mole biopsies to Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a dedicated and board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles.  


The approach to surgical biopsies for potential skin cancers begin with a consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian wherein he will describe and recommend a biopsy protocol that minimizes scar and maximizes an uneventful recovery. If you have had other surgical biopsies for skin cancers and have found that the scars are unacceptable, Dr. Karamanoukian can advise you on surgical scar revision and laser scar revision for previous biopsies as well as options for future biopsy.  The approach of a plastic surgeon for skin biopsies is different than that taken by other physicians and this approach can help minimize potential scarring.  By using specialized types of sutures and minimizing postoperative tension, Dr. Karamanoukian can help minimize your potential for scars from your skin biopsy. 


In the Los Angeles area, Dr. Karamanoukian performs treatment for skin cancers including basal cell skin cancer, squamous cell skin cancer, and pigmented moles. Please contact our office at 310 998-5533 for a consult with Dr. Karamanoukian.
