Cyst Removal in Portsmouth

Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can form on or just beneath the skin due to reasons such as blockages in hair follicles or oil glands. When they become bothersome or painful, seeking medical attention is essential.

Surgical cyst removal is a commonly recommended treatment. For those in Portsmouth and the surrounding areas, our Waterlooville clinic is at your service.

What does the treatment for Cyst Removal involve?

Situated in the heart of Waterlooville, our clinic offers a comprehensive cyst removal service designed with patient comfort and satisfaction in mind. Before commencing any procedure, a local anaesthetic is applied to the targeted area, ensuring a virtually pain-free experience for the patient.

After ensuring the site is numb and the patient is relaxed, our surgeon, Mr Payne, carefully removes the cyst. This is done with precision to minimise scarring and ensure optimal results. Once the cyst has been expertly excised, the wound is closed using absorbable stitches, negating the need for a return visit for stitch removal. Convenient for those in and around the Portsmouth area.

Recovery from Cyst Removal

Depending on the location of the cyst, recovery timelines may vary. Facial cysts typically heal within a week, whereas other areas might require a longer recovery period. The absorbable stitches are designed to last between 2–3 weeks.

Patients may leave our Waterlooville clinic with a protective dressing over the wound. After its removal, we recommend regular application of antiseptic cream (such as Savlon) to aid healing. For those having had scalp cysts removed, you may wash your hair the subsequent day, ensuring care around the procedure site.

What you can expect from Cyst Removal

We may cover the affected site with a discreet dressing after concluding the procedure. When it’s time to remove this dressing, it’s advisable to apply an antiseptic cream to the area to promote optimal healing. If you’ve had a cyst removed from the scalp, you can resume hair washing the following day, ensuring you handle the treated area with care and gentleness.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cyst Removal Portsmouth

The fee for removing a single cyst ranges from £375 – 400, which includes the consultation and any subsequent aftercare (typically not required). Additional cysts removed during the same visit will incur a charge of £100 per cyst.

The soluble stitches used are designed to last between 2–3 weeks, though they may persist slightly longer in some cases.

While immediate aftercare is minimal, we advise applying antiseptic cream to the site regularly for the initial few days. For scalp cyst removals, patients can wash their hair the next day, ensuring gentle handling of the treated area.
