Mole to be removed on upper eyelid

What type of procedure is used to remove a mole on my upper eyelid.  Will it be done by an Ocuplastic Surgeon?  
What is the recovery time;  for example, will I have to miss work due to patch on eye?

It depends on the size and location. Whether it actually needs to be removed. Many good general ophthalmologists Eye MD do eyelid surgery especially if the lesion is not especially large. Cost and recovery depend on what needs to be done.

You need to get in and discuss this with your Eye MD surgeon.
