What is a mole?
A mole is a small collection of skin cells or melanocytes on the surface of the skin. They usually appear during childhood, and you may have as many as 50 on your body. Most moles are harmless or benign, but it is a good idea to be aware of your moles’ size and general appearance so that you can show any changes to your doctor.
Suspicious moles need to be removed and this can normally be done via the NHS. But some people also choose to remove moles that are benign because they find them unattractive, or they worry that the mole may change in future.
Mole removal at Elena Prousskaia Bristol
Award-winning plastic surgeon Elena Prousskaia established her Bristol practice after working for several years as an NHS Consultant in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. As well as her Bristol clinic, Elena has several successful clinics across the country, including London, offering a range of aesthetic surgeries.
Elena and her skilled surgical team have a great deal of experience in all types of surgery, including removing moles and other types of benign skin lesions. Even though removing a mole is a relatively simple procedure, it should be done by a skilled surgeon under sterile conditions
Firstly, the area around the mole will be numbed with a local anaesthetic and sterilised with swabs. The surgeon will make an incision and be very careful to ensure that the entire mole is removed without damaging any surrounding structures, for example, nerves. After removal, the mole will be placed in a sterile jar and sent for analysis.
Mole removal should not be painful, and any post-operative pain can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Your wound will require stitches, but you should be able to resume your normal activities the day after surgery. However, if your mole was on a part of the body where the skin is required to be stretched, then your surgeon may advise you to take it easy for a few days to avoid strain on the stitches. Dissolvable stitches will usually disappear after a couple of weeks.
How much does mole removal in Bristol cost?
The cost of an initial consultation for a professional surgical opinion starts at £200 and the removal surgery itself at £500. The final price will vary according to the size and location of the mole and can only be confirmed at your initial consultation. The total price will include the surgeon’s time, the anaesthetic, and the follow-up reviews, of which there will be four in the three months after your surgery.
As one of the South West’s leading plastic and aesthetic surgeons, Elena Prousskaia is delighted to be offering her services within the superb modern environment of the Bristol Spire, near Clifton.

Bristol straddles the River Avon in the southwest of England. It’s a former maritime city that boasts a vibrant cultural life and youthful population due to its universities and location. The harbour’s 19th-century warehouses now contain restaurants, shops and cultural institutions such as contemporary art gallery The Arnolfini.
Elena was recommended to me and as soon as I met her I felt entirely comfortable. Her explanations made sense in terms of expectations. Having made the big decision I did feel nervous but had absolute trust and confidence in Elena. I knew I was in the best hands. Elena's team is so supportive, my questions were answered with patience and understanding. My care at the McIndoe Centre was excellent. I am five weeks post op for abdominoplasty and liposuction and last week. Quite amazing to see the before and after pictures! I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to meet Elena and have no hesitation in recommending her.
SM – Abdominoplasty & Liposuction
I have been both physically and mentally uncomfortable in my body since I was 12. I was born with ‘breast mutation’ and I first had surgery to correct this through the NHS at 16 years old. The surgery I have had with Elena, 17 years later, has removed the NHS implants, one of which had ruptured, and completely altered the shape of my chest. By doing this she has made me look and feel like a woman for the first time in my life. She is at all times quietly kind and fiercely adept. A true artist. She has surrounded herself with the most wonderful team and I cannot thank them all enough for the new lease of life that I have been given.

I have been self conscious for the whole of my adult life and I cannot express how much this surgery has changed things for me. Both mentally and physically. I highly recommend Elena. She supported me throughout my journey from start to finish. Elena is very particular which for me is really important. Elena really took care of me from initial consultation right through to surgery and aftercare.My scaring is minimal and I am absolutely over the moon with my results. Thank you Elena!
JB – Breast Reduction
Elena is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I had PIP implants and was looking to have them changed. I knew Elena was the surgeon to help, she put me at ease and explained my options. The lovely ladies in her office were helpful, I wanted to get sorted asap, when an alternative date was available contacted me straight away. I received outstanding care from start to finish from Elena, her team and the hospital. The aftercare is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, can call any time. I was so relaxed, I knew I was in great hands. The final results are fantastic. Elena has worked magic and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so glad I found her. I can’t thank her and her team enough.

Had surgery with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!
