Is cosmetic mole removal covered by insurance?

I have a prominent mole on my face that I'm just tired of looking at -- plus, it's gotten bigger since I was young. I have a consultation with a plastic surgeon soon. (I'd rather he do it than my dermatologist, to minimize the risk of scarring.) If a mole is benign, does insurance typically cover its removal? [more inside]

So, is this a mutation?

Weird question, I'm sure.... How do you know if a skin growth is a mole or if it is a supernumary nipple? It LOOKS like a (small) nipple, no areola, and is in line with where a third nipple would likely be....but it could just be a mole...is there some sort of definitive way of knowing the difference?
