Below are our most popular treatment options for pigmented lesion removal.
What are moles?
Moles are pigmented lesions on the skin, usually appearing as brown spots.
Why choose mole removal?
Although often harmless, the majority of people choose to have this procedure because they do not like the appearance of these brown spots. This is often the case if they appear in prominent areas such as the face and neck. In these cases, mole removal has the benefit of improving confidence and self-esteem.
How are moles removed?
The process is minimally intrusive, and we aim to make it as simple as possible. The surgeon will cut around any brown spots, and then stitch up the cut. You can expect to be left with a small scar where the mole was before. The appearance of any such scars will be minimal.
Skin tag removal
What is a skin tag?
Skin tags are small lumps attached to the skin, frequently attached by a thin stem. They are also known as acrochorda.
Why choose removal?
As with moles, skin tags may cause loss of confidence if they occur in a prominent area, such as the face or neck. The process of treatment is simple and efficient, and so it may be in your best interests to opt for removal if it makes you self-conscious.
How are skin tags removed?
You will be given local anaesthetic in the area in order to minimise discomfort while the tag is removed. The procedure does not require stitching.
Skin cancer has become more common in the UK in recent years. This is especially true for those with sun-damaged skin, as sun exposure can be dangerous for skin cells.
Mr. Abood can arrange a professional skin cancer consultation appointment, where he will examine the skin, and, if cancer is present, will then remove it and send it off for professional testing.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can pigmented lesions be treated using laser treatments?
Mr. Abood uses surgery to treat the pigmented lesions of his clients, and does not treat them with laser treatments. While some other plastic surgeons do use laser treatment, Mr. Abood opts for surgical procedures instead.
If you are interested in laser treatments, we can discuss other alternatives with you in your free consultation.
What are the potential side effects of these treatments?
You may experience some slight discomfort when the general anaesthetic wears off after the treatment. It is also possible for some treatments, such as mole removal, to result in small scars at the site of the mole.

The county town of Cambridgeshire, Cambridge, is located on the River Cam, approximately 89 km north of London.
It is a university city with a world-renowned university that is the fourth-oldest in the world. The University of Cambridge was founded in 1209 and contributes much to the life of the city.
Graduates of the university often live and establish start-ups there. More than 40 per cent of Cambridge’s workforce has a higher education qualification.
The first officiated game of football was played by university students and representatives at Parker’s Piece, Cambridge, in 1848. Punting past the university’s iconic architecture, such as Kings College Chapel, is another student pursuit.
