I am 21 years old and was told that a freckle on my upper lip was actually a mole that was 'severely abnormal' and needed to be removed. The original decision was that a 5mm margin needed to be removed, which would have left me with stitches from up inside my nose to the inside of my mouth -- so I decided to see a plastic surgeon since the incision was going to be so large. Dr. Weber sent my lab results to a different dermatologist for a second opinion and ended up only taking a 2mm margin, which came back clean. I was pretty swollen the day after, but within a week it was unbelievable how normal everything looked even with stitches. Things have only gotten better from there. Dr. Weber is an amazing surgeon and a wonderful person just in general.
