Accutane and minor Surgery

Recommended Posts

Hey, I have a small mole on the side of my nose.

Its very annoying to see every day.

A mole removal by a plastic surgeon is a simple procedure but is it okay to do it while I'm on accutane?

It will probably heal poorly. I'd wait until post Accutane.

i have a couple annoying moles on my back as well, the derm said to wait until i've been off accutane a year just in case. but i have very delicate skin that scars easily, i think the problem wiht getting piercings or tattoos or mole removals or anythign that breaks the skin is that while on accutane your scarring is fucked up. i'd wait at least six months post tane, especially since it's on your face it's not worth the risk. live with it just one more year !
