Mole Removal

Dr. Kristina Zakhary performs cosmetic mole removal in her office in Calgary, Alberta. Most physicians who perform mole removals are either Facial Plastic Surgeons, Cosmetic dermatologists or general plastic surgeons. 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. 

Dr. Kristina Zakhary often consults with, and performs mole removal treatments for her patients in Calgary, Alberta, if they would like to have their moles removed for cosmetic reasons, and if the mole is benign.  If you have a mole that you would like to have assessed, Dr. Zakhary can advise you on whether it is most likely benign and non cancerous.  If this is the case, then she can expertly remove your mole, comfortably, under local anesthesia, in her office under sterile conditions.

Mole removal options in Dr. Kristina Zakhary's Facial Plastic Surgery Calgary office include:

Removing the mole surgically with a scalpelRemoving the mole by burning it so that it is flat and flush with the rest of your skin

During your consultation with Dr. Zakhary, she will guide and advise you on the mole removal treatment, risks and benefits, and she can suggest the best mole removal treatment that will best meet your goals and needs.

Following your mole removal treatment, an antiseptic ointment or special bandage will be applied to the treated area.  You may return to social activities immediately as there is very little down time with mole removal surgery.

Scar Revision

Dr. Kristina Zakhary, Facial Cosmetic Surgeon, Facelift and Rhinoplasty specialist, practicing in Calgary, Alberta, performs scar revision surgery in her Calgary, Alberta office to improve the appearance of certain scars.

Scar revision surgery cannot eliminate or fully remove a scar, but Dr. Zakhary can use surgical or non surgical techniques to improve the appearance of scar by changing its size, narrowing a wide scar, reduce the thickness of a scar or raise an indented or depressed scar. 

Acne and Acne Scar treatments require patience, expertise, precision and skill. Dr. Kristina Zakhary is a Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Facial Cosmetic Surgeon who is specialized and has many years of experience in treatment of Acne and Acne scars in Calgary, Alberta.

Scar revision surgery usually improves the appearance of a scar by changing it and replacing it with another less obvious scar. Dr. Zakhary can perform scar revision surgery in the comfort of her office in Calgary, by surgically removing it under local anesthesia and replacing it with a less noticeable scar, or by non surgical methods such as Fillers (eg. Restylane or Perlane filler), Non Ablative Laser Resurfacing (eg Fraxel Laser treatments or Vein laser treatments) or injection of medications that will thin out a thick scar (eg. small amount of localized steroid medication).   During your consultation with Dr. Zakhary, in her Calgary office, she will guide you to the best treatment plan that will meet your individual scar revision needs and goals.

What our patients have to say

I got a big scar on my forehead that worried me too much. It was even impossible to disguise it by makeup. I was determined to get it removed by all means. My experience and the outcomes after the procedure are amazing. I've already recommended Dr. Zakary and her clinic to my friend. I am grateful to all the staff.
I've enjoyed every moment being the patient of Dr.Zakhary. I suffered from a keloid scar and it made me feel bad and uncomfortable. When I met Dr.Zakhary, she seemed to be very handy and well-trained to treat keloid scars as I had. I do appreciate the after surgery results and I hope the final outcome would be even better.
Dr. Kristina has done serveral procedures for me over the last 10 years, including Botox and Filler injections, and some moles removed, and to the utmost of my satisfaction. If I ever need a touch up, she gets me in as soon as possible. She does own her results, and is very ethical when it comes to her work and patients. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for any type of cosmetic or plastic surgery. I can't thank Dr. Kristina and her staff enough for everything they have done for me.
Dr Zakhary is excellent. I have had multiple moles removed and the results are fantastic.
I came in to get scar revision surgery and it was a very positive experience; the staff made me feel extremely comfortable and Dr. Zakhary treated me kindly and was very warm each time I had an appointment. I am very happy with the results of my cosmetic surgery and I would definitely return to Dr. Zakhary!
I’ve always had two massive moles, one on the right side of my cheek and one on the side of my nose a couple years back and I’ve been trying to get rid of them ever since. I was referred to Dr. Zakhary by a friend and I’m glad I accepted the offer. She didn’t try to sell herself in the beginning but instead sat down and wanted to get a fee for what I was going through, almost like I was talking to a friend. After she had shown me through the entire procedure, she performed the therapy by burning it and then letting it heal. It’s not fully gone but it’s 10 times better than it was before. Thanks!

I had several moles on my cheek and chin that I had always been embarrassed about over the past years. Eventually I got the courage to go to Dr. Zakhary. Usually, I would have never had an operation but with Dr. Zakhary, she made me feel safer and more confident than ever before. She explained exactly how the removal process would occur and what I could expect afterwards. Well, it’s been a month and so far, so good.

I wholeheartedly recommend this plastic surgeon to everyone. I had gotten a burn on my face as a result of a firework mishap ,I didn't like the scar on my face and wanted to get rid of it entirely. Fortunately, I learned about this plastic surgeon and received cosmetic treatment. I am extremely grateful to you!!!

I had a large mole on my chin and beside my nose and I was afraid to get rid of it because of possible scarring. When I met Dr. Zakhary, she acted very cally and went through all the possibilities and how a benign mole can be removed with almost no scarring at all. After that, I did the procedure and now I look better than ever!
Stella Saunders
I had a scar/mole right above my eyebrow that was becoming increasingly difficult to cover with makeup (and I was picking at it). I knew I wanted it removed and I came across Dr. Zakhary's clinic through a quick google search. I am extremely pleased with the results of the procedure. The healing process is going very smoothly due to the specific aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Zakhary and her staff.
