Dr. Zarb Adami is a surgeon who through her background in plastic surgery has extensive experience in mole removal surgery as one of the many services provided by the London based clinic, Aesthetic Virtue. Regardless of where the mole, wart or skin tag is on your face or body, we can assure you that mole removal leaves little or no scarring. Dr. Zarb Adami has performed hundreds of mole and skin tag removals with excellent results.
Many people are self-conscious about the moles they have on their face and body. By choosing Aesthetic Virtue in London to remove a mole, skin tag or wart, you can be sure of achieving the most superior cosmetic results.
We offer a range of removal procedures, outlined below, and will discuss with you which is the most appropriate method of mole removal at your initial consultation. Each procedure is relatively quick and painless, offering a stress-free solution to a problem that may have bothered you for years.
The technique used to remove a mole, skin tag or wart will depend on the depth of the lesion and the desired cosmetic outcome. Methods generally involve the administration of a small amount of local anaesthetic, and then depending on the size, nature, shape and location of the lesion, it can either be shaved off and cauterised, or surgically excised and the wound closed with stitches.
The procedure is relatively quick and painless, and can be done on the same day. Possible side-effects are rare, but immediate side-effects include mild pain when the local anaesthetic wears off (usually in two to three hours), redness, itching, infection, swelling or bruising long-term. The lesion may come back and scarring may form, in which case we strongly recommend that all lesions are examined histologically. We will send off the sample to the laboratory on your behalf and you will then be invoiced separately by the lab for this cost. Follow-up and removal of stitches at the Aesthetic Virtue Clinic, Knightsbridge London after the procedure is included.

I have just undergone a surgical procedure. How should I now look after the wound so as to have the best scar possible?
It is imperative to keep the area clean at all times to avoid infections. Avoid excessive movement or strain in the area. When exposed to sunlight, scar tissue tends to take up pigment differently to normal skin. Therefore, it is important to keep the area covered, or if on the face to use sun protection at all times (minimum SPF 30), as otherwise the resulting scar may be more obvious as it may be paler or darker than the surrounding skin.
Very often, in the first 6 weeks following a procedure, it is normal for the scar to be slightly red and raised. Two weeks following the procedure or following removal of sutures (if used) it is recommended to massage the scar using Vitamin E cream, or Manuka honey. This will flatten the scar.
A scar takes up to 18 months to mature to its final appearance. During this time, care for the scar should be optimised.

All my questions were addressed, treatment options, outcomes, potential side effects and after-care instructions were very clear. And the procedure was far less painful than I had imagined!
A gentle hand… you might have very possibly cured my needle-phobia finally! And thank goodness, as everybody thinks I’m looking younger and fresher now!
A clinic that insists on natural results! Fabulous! Now I’m loving the compliments.
Dr Raina has been my doctor for the last 18 months, and she will be for many months longer.
Recently my 20 year old daughter (who has beautiful full lips) told me she wanted to get her lips enlarged and that she had already spoken to another doctor about it, who was willing to do it for her. I took her along with me to discuss it with Dr Raina who explained to her that her natural lips are very nice and in proportion with the rest of her face. She mentioned that more volume will ruin the proportions and she would look ‘done’. We are both very grateful for the honesty there.
A very professional, honest and straightforward doctor with surgical skills to match! My right earlobe split 6 years ago, and I was too anxious to have it repaired.
Now, I have no idea why I didn’t get it done sooner!
After discussing the pros and cons of removing the mole on my face, I finally underwent the procedure. Three months on, I am very pleased with the result. I appreciate the no frills honesty and straightforwardness.
Highly professional… I will certainly be recommending you.
