See anything different?

About a month ago I did something that I wasn't sure I'd ever do.  Can you see a difference (in my appearance) in the following two photos?  You don't even have to look too closely.

Yep, the mole above my eyebrow is no more!  That thing started out as a little freckle when I was around 5.  By the time I graduated high school is was a small mole.  It was a part of me.  It didn't bother me.  I'd always had it.  But in the last 12 years it's at least doubled in size.  And it didn't really start to bother me until about a year ago.  It was time to say goodbye.  Might as well get rid of it before it got even bigger and left a bigger scar.  So, I did it.  There's proof below that I didn't photoshop it out!  I went to a plastic surgeon and he did an AMAZING job.  I had 5 stitches and you can hardly see the scar line.  You definitely can't see it with a little makeup.
