Tough spot

Girlfriend - - GF FEELS -

I have a lot of moles all over my face, neck and body, and I’m su­per self-con­scious about it. I know when peo­ple meet me that’s the first thing they see. I’m 15 and

I don’t feel like guys ever want to kiss or ask me out!

My fam­ily al­ways tells me to try and be happy with the way I am, but I’m won­der­ing if there is any­thing I can do to get rid of them pro­fes­sion­ally.

Self-con­scious

Firstly, you are in good com­pany – some of the world’s most beau­ti­ful women have moles on their faces. Try googling pics of Natalie Port­man, Rachel McA­dams or Blake Lively, to name a few. Usu­ally the first thing peo­ple no­tice when they meet some­one is their self­con­fi­dence and smile. So, your fam­ily has a good point. Sec­ondly, the prob­lem with hav­ing moles re­moved is that it can leave a scar and pos­si­bly cre­ate a mark that you find even more con­fronting. If you re­ally can’t deal with your moles, you could get an opinion from a rep­utable plas­tic sur­geon about the sort of scar­ring you might ex­pect. Talk to your GP and please don’t rush into surgery.
