Hello Doctor,


What surgical procedure can effectively remove the birthmark or mole on my left foot, minimizing scarring? I've had it since birth and would like to wear heels and sandals without the mark being noticeable.

There are several options available to address the birthmark on your left foot with minimal scarring. The approach depends on factors such as the birthmark's size, location, and shape, as well as your age and skin tone. Achieving complete removal may require multiple surgeries. It's essential to have a detailed consultation with your plastic surgeon to devise a personalized treatment plan.
