Scar Revision and Mole Removal

Dr. Chaboki works exclusively with the face and has extensive experience in performing facial reconstructive procedures, so he is especially qualified to aid men and women who require precise and aesthetically pleasing results after a traumatic injury, birth defect, or facial abnormality.

In Washington, DC and Maryland, scar removal (or revision) may require a combination of techniques depending upon the size and severity of the scar. Dr. Chaboki may use topical, injectable (to fill concave scars) or surface treatments (such as dermabrasion, laser therapy, chemical peels, or bleaching agents). Deep scars may need to be treated surgically for best results. Scars may not be completely removed with treatment. The goal of scar revision is to improve the appearance of the scar either by disguising it, relocating it, or minimizing its prominence.
Mole removal in Maryland and Washington, DC should be pursued with careful attention to determine whether the mole is benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). The nature of the lesion will determine the course of treatment that Dr. Chaboki will pursue. If the mole is benign, Dr. Chaboki may simply shave it down. If there is a possibility that the mole is cancerous, Dr. Chaboki will surgically remove it and a sample will be analyzed to see if further treatment is needed.
Scar revision and mole removal, when performed by a qualified surgeon, can improve self-confidence and may prevent illness by removing cancerous and precancerous lesions. For more information on reconstructive surgery, you can visit Dr. Chaboki's blog.
