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]

Tattoo stars sought

Tattoofilter: I have a bunch of moles. I'm considering turning them into a constellation. That's great, you say, just draw some lines between them. That's cute, I say, but I don't want to do that. I want to decorate individual moles gradually over time, so the constellation changes. Help me brainstorm small delicate designs that meet some or all of the following criteria: [more inside]

YANMDermatologist, but...

I had a mole removed and biopsied last week. It came back negative but the dermatologist recommended a surgical excision to remove "the rest of it." I am leaving the U.S. indefinitely... tomorrow. What are my options? Could I reasonably expect to be able to have this procedure done overseas? [more inside]

The Funky Mole Panic Dance

Browsing MetaFilter the other day, like normal, when I come across a link to this. Interesting, informative read -- also: terrifying. I've got tons of funky moles, and reading this jolted me into action. Long story short: I've booked an appointment with a Dermatologist, and now I can't get out my head. Please help me get out of my head. [more inside]

Removal of moles and other blemishes from my scalp when I shave my head?

I am losing my hair, but I'm comfortable with the fact that soon I'll either be a guy with thinning hair, or a guy with a shaved head. What I'm worried about is that I may just have unsightly moles on my head. [more inside]

Need a Mole Patrol!

My yard is being taken over by moles, and I have tried practically everything short of calling an exterminator (which I don't want to resort to) but the moles are destroying my yard. I've tried the vibrating sticks that you pound into the ground, I've tried castor-based repellents, which sometimes work and sometimes don't. Someone suggested that the key to moles is getting rid of their food, the grubs, so this year I am putting down Grub-Ex. I've even gotten the suggestion of burying ammonia-soaked rags in the ground in their tunnels. Does anyone have any tried and true mole solutions? I live in the country up against a nature preserve. I'm beginning to think it's hopeless. My backyard is becoming a giant sinkhole.
