Cyst Removal in Southampton

Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can appear on or under the skin, often resulting from blocked hair follicles or oil glands. If they turn irritable or cause discomfort, it’s crucial to consult a medical professional.

For individuals in Southampton and nearby regions, our clinic in Waterlooville stands ready to provide expert surgical cyst removal.

What does the treatment for Cyst Removal involve?

Located centrally in Waterlooville, our clinic delivers a thorough cyst removal service tailored for patient comfort and satisfaction. Before initiating the procedure, we administer a local anaesthetic to the affected area, guaranteeing a nearly painless experience for our clients.

Upon ensuring the site is thoroughly numbed and the patient feels at ease, our skilled surgeon, Mr Payne, meticulously removes the cyst. He performs this accurately to reduce scarring and promise the best possible outcomes. After the cyst’s successful removal, the incision is sealed with absorbable stitches, eliminating the necessity for a follow-up stitch removal appointment. This is especially convenient for residents coming in from the Southampton area.

Recovery from Cyst Removal

Recovery duration can fluctuate based on the cyst’s placement. Cysts on the face generally mend within a week, while cysts on other body parts might necessitate an extended recovery span. The soluble stitches used are crafted to dissolve over 2–3 weeks.

Upon leaving our Waterlooville establishment, clients might have a protective, padded dressing covering their wound. Once this is removed, we advocate for consistently using an antiseptic ointment (like Savlon) to foster smooth healing. For individuals who’ve undergone removal of scalp cysts, it’s permissible to shampoo your hair the following day. Just ensure to be gentle around the treated zone.

What you can expect from Cyst Removal

After the procedure, we might place a discrete dressing over the treated area. Upon its removal, we suggest using an antiseptic cream to facilitate the best healing process. For those who’ve had a scalp cyst excised, hair washing can commence the next day but do approach the affected region with delicacy and caution. Please read our scalp cyst removal aftercare guide for more details.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cyst Removal Southampton

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.
