Minor Lesions Removal

Lumps, Bumps & Lesion Removal

Skin abnormalities can often cause discomfort, affect self-confidence, or raise concerns about potential health risks. Whether you're dealing with warts, moles, skin tags, cysts, or other bothersome growths, our skilled medical professionals are here to provide you with the necessary information and insights to make informed decisions about your treatment options.

Minor skin surgery involves the removal of unwanted skin lumps, bumps & lesions using local anaesthetic, the procedure used to remove various types of benign skin growths such as warts, cysts, moles, skin tags, and other bothersome lesions. It is a safe and effective treatment option that can address both aesthetic concerns and potential health risks associated with these skin abnormalities.

Minor lesions surgery is suitable for a wide range of benign skin growths, including but not limited to warts, cysts, moles, skin tags and seborrheic keratoses (rough, scaly skin growths). Our experienced medical professionals will assess your specific condition to determine if minor lesions surgery is appropriate for you.

The surgical technique used for minor lesions surgery may vary depending on the type, size, and location of the lesion. Common methods include excision (cutting out the lesion), cryotherapy (freezing the lesion with liquid nitrogen) and laser surgery. Our Doctors will recommend the most suitable technique for your particular case.

There are several reasons why you may consider undergoing minor lesions surgery. Firstly, it can help improve your appearance by removing unsightly or bothersome growths. Additionally, some lesions may cause discomfort or interfere with daily activities, and surgery can provide relief in such cases. Furthermore, removing certain lesions allows for a thorough examination to rule out any potential malignancy or other underlying health conditions.

Generally, minor lesions surgery is performed using local anaesthesia to numb the area being treated. This helps minimise discomfort during the procedure. After the surgery, you may experience mild soreness, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Our medical team will provide you with appropriate pain management instructions to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

Like any surgical procedure, minor lesions surgery carries some risks. These risks include infection, bleeding, scarring, changes in skin pigmentation, and, in rare cases, nerve damage. However, our experienced medical professionals take extensive precautions to minimise these risks and ensure your safety. They will provide you with detailed pre- and post-operative care instructions to help reduce the likelihood of complications.

The recovery period varies depending on the size and location of the lesion, as well as the specific surgical technique used. In general, most patients can expect a relatively short recovery time. You may experience mild swelling, redness, or scabbing at the surgical site, which typically resolves within a week or two. Our medical team will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to promote optimal healing.
