Dr. Kristina Zakhary performs cosmetic mole removal in her office in Calgary, Alberta.

Dr. Zakhary is a Head and Neck Facial Cosmetic Surgeon who is fully trained, accredited and experienced in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, practicing in Calgary Alberta, who can consult with you to determine your individual goals and needs and develop the best plan for your mole removal procedure.
Moles are skin growths composed of a cluster of cells, that are either skin colour, pigmented (tan or dark colour), and they are usually round growths that can appear anywhere on your face, neck, chest, shoulder, back, hands, arms and legs. If a mole is dark in colour, this means that there is a large concentration of melanin or pigment in the cells that make up the mole. A benign mole (ie Non cancerous) usually has a symmetrical shape, even borders, one even colour, and is usually smaller than a pencil eraser's end. Any individual may have only one, or multiple moles. A benign mole can be a source of embarrassment and can be easily removed by the right facial plastic surgeon, in a way that leaves minimal, and sometimes no scarring.
Moles can appear on your body at any age, ranging from childhood, to adulthood or even later in life. They usually grow very slowly and can change only very slightly in colour. If your mole has a significant change in colour, size, shape or sensation over a relatively short period of time, it is advisable to have this mole checked by a facial plastic surgeon, or dermatologist. Dr. Zakhary is expertly trained in surgery of the head and neck, and facial plastic surgery, and is qualified to assess and remove your mole in her office in Calgary, if you have any concerns about your mole.
