greetings. I need to see the pictures of the mole before i could comment on anything. kindly send pictures on follow up messaging. the mole can be easily removed by punch method and it is one of the standard ways of removing a mole, however, it must be closed with one or two small stitches. the scar will lighten with time and treatment. other option could be radio frequency ablation of the mole. discuss with your dermatologist. warm regards.
