Age for facial mole removal via plastic surgery

Patient: How old do I have to be to get a mole on my face (above my upper lip) removed via a plastic surgeon in Australia?

 

 

Doctor: A person over the age of 18 can consent to treatment or refuse medical treatment if they have capacity. However if you a re below 18 years of age, a ‘person responsible’ would have to make that decision for you, which in your case would be your parents.
