All my life I have had a mole on my face, specifically on the right side of my face, next to my nose.
It has always bothered me. My face was never symmetrical. I have been teased and bullied about it as long as I can remember.
I used to get called names such as “witch.” But the most common one was “moley.” Even my sister used to call me that on a daily basis. What got to me more than her saying it was the fact that no one in my family used to do anything about it. I don’t even think they cared. They used to laugh with her at me.
I’ve always asked for it to be removed but I was always too young and it was still growing!
About 7 months ago, I got it REMOVED! 😬
These are some pictures of the best experience of my life and the best decision I’ve ever made:
^ me and my mum, before the op. As you can see I only took pictures of the left side of my face!
^ just before surgery. Nervous but excited!
^ after surgery, even though I had stitches in and a patch on my face that drew more attraction than my mole did I was so happy. My first selfies in a long time ☺️
^ stitches out. It looks bad but wait for the other photos 😛
^ my boyfriend and I on holiday & my dad and I at the waterfront. The first times I had gotten out in a long time! So happy!
^ up to date photo. Scar is almost all gone!
I live a happier life now and I don’t have to hide my face. I take selfies on a regular basis and I am proud of it!
Thank you for reading! ☺️
