Mole removal abroad

Mole removal abroad

misctu  |  visitor  |  Bern
Mole removal is more expensive where I live, so I was wondering if it's generally worth it to do the procedure in another country like Germany or something, and what that would entail? For example, I'd like to know if it's a big risk to be far away from the doctor in case of something going wrong with scarring, or if follow-up appointments are generally required. Would an excision be something you can just pop on the train for and come back the same day or not?

Related to this, what is the best type of doctor/surgeon to seek the procedure from? Where I live, a lot of them seem to specialize in procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction etc... and advertise for those procedures. Are there types of plastic surgeons that specialize more specifically in stuff like mole removal, or is it the same wherever you go?

Hi, really it's easier to be treated near where you're living...
Obviously the follow up and the removal of the suture would be more convenient for you.
Each surgeon can do this little intervention under local anesthesia and a lovely suture under your skin that avoids bad scars.
The price is important but should not be the priority before comfort and quality.
