Mole, Cyst, Lipoma Removal

The London Cosmetic Clinic is a mole, skin tag, wart, cyst and other skin lesions removal centre. You will be treated by a well respected and experienced cosmetic doctor.

Moles can be described as pigmented blemishes that appears on the face or body. They can vary in size, shape and colour. Some moles are flat, while others can have a raised appearance. The majority of moles are usually harmless, however if you notice a change in colour or shape, or if the mole begin to irritate you, then it should be checked by a doctor as these symptoms could be signs of something more serious.

Highly visible moles on the body or face can often lead to loss of confidence or embarrassment for certain individuals. Moles that restrict movement, or which are overly large, can sometimes result in pain and distress.

A skin tag is a small protrusion of skin that often grows in the groin area, armpit, neck and eyelid.

A cyst is a sack filled with fluid or semi-fluid material. Cysts develop in various places in the body and arise from different tissues.

A wart is generally a small, rough growth, typically on hands and feet but often in other locations. They can resemble a cauliflower or a solid blister. They are caused by a viral infection. It is possible to get warts from others as they are contagious and usually enter the body in an area of broken skin.They typically disappear after a few months but can last for years and can recur.

Fortunately, there are fast and straightforward procedures available for removal of the above lesions which bring a renewed sense of confidence to the patient.

Treatment

At your consultation, the lesion will be carefully examined by our Specialist doctors who will advise the best method of removal. You should inform the doctor if there is any recent change in colour, size, surface and shape of the lesions.

Procedure

Prior to the treatment : Topical or local anaesthetic will be administered

Shave excision – The procedure involves using a dermablade to remove the mole parallel to the surface of the skin. This leaves a small superficial wound which may need cauterisation to stop any bleeding and tidy the wound. The whole procedure takes about 20 minutes. No stitches are needed and healing takes about 1 to 2 weeks. This technique is used mainly for mole and skin tag removal

Elliptical excision – a deep excision that removes the mole more completely. The resulting wound requires stitches which can be either dissolvable or non-dissolvable depending on the site of removal. The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes. Generally, it is a method to remove deep moles and Cysts

Hyfrecator treatment – The hyfrecator is a low-powered medical apparatus used in electro surgery. It is used to destroy tissue directly, and to stop bleeding during minor surgery. This leaves a small superficial wound. The hyfrecator has a large number of uses, such as removal of warts, moles, skin tags and some other types of skin lesions. The treatment takes only a few minutes to complete

Post treatment : You can resume normal activities straight away in most cases and a dressing is applied to keep the wound clean for a few days. Antibiotic cream will be prescribed to apply at the wounds until the wound heals or stiches are removed. Specific post treatment instructions will be discussed with you during your visit by our Clinic Coordinator. If stitches are applied, you will be scheduled to come back for stitch removal in 1-2 weeks

Histology

We put your safety first. So most skin lesions are sent to a laboratory for histology tests after the removal. This uses a high-powered microscope to detect any abnormal cells. Although most moles can look normal to the naked eye, occasionally early abnormal cells can be detected in the tissue, which could cause skin cancer. Hence the need to send for sample for analysis to exclude this diagnosis
