I just cut the stem off with a pair of clippers an finish it off with a dremel. I have never had a problem.

I used snips to take off most of the post and then a die grinder to work it down. Some 600 grit and then 100 grit sand paper finished it off. I polished it afterward and it looked fine. You can get it die grinder at Harbor Freight for under $20 with bits.

I meant, start with 600 and then go to 1000 grit. You have to be very careful not to hit the skin.

sorry.
