Q&A: Will I be able to grow eyelashes where a mole was removed along the lashline?

Ask A Doctor Question:
If I have a raised mole removed on my bottom eyelid along the lashline, Would I be able to still grow eyelashes where the mole was removed?
It depends on how deep the incision will need to be made to remove the mole. A deeper incision may result in the hair not growing. Some shallow lesions can be shaved off without permanently injuring hair growth.

In most cases removal of a superficial lesion won't impact eyelashes.
