What is Eyebrow Cyst Removal?

Sebaceous cysts of the skin can occur in or near the eyebrow, where they can be particularly noticeable. They rarely become infected, but if they do, it is important to obtain antibiotic treatment soon since the infection could spread around the eye and cause more serious problems.

A cyst near the eyebrow needs careful removal under magnification to ensure that the wound and, therefore, the scar is as small as possible. Consideration will be given to the natural orientation of the skin in the area and balanced against the contour of the eyebrow.

What does the treatment for Eyebrow Cyst Removal involve?

Local anaesthetic is given to numb the area, and the cyst is removed. The wound will be closed with fine (hair’s breadth) dissolving stitches. The wound will then often be covered with antibiotic cream.

Recovery from Eyebrow Cyst Removal

Post operatively, recovery is rapid. Most patients would drive themselves home. The wound may be showered and dabbed dry. Petroleum gel or similar (Savlon dual healing gel is suitable) should be applied regularly for the first week or two after surgery. The stitches normally take a couple of weeks to dissolve.

What you can expect from Eyebrow Cyst Removal

Although complications can occur (such as infection), they are uncommon, and patients usually recover quickly and are pleased that they had their cyst removed.

Unsightly lesion removal

June 24, 2024

Simon removed a seborrhoeic keratosis from my forehead which I’ve disliked for some time. The procedure was simple, painless and I’m pleased with the result.

Overall, the service and care was excellent.

Had a cyst removed that has bugged me for years. Surgery went well and I didn’t even realise when it was done. I had no issues at all. Thanks to Dr Simon I don’t have to worry about a cyst on my face anymore. Healed properly leaving no scar. Will highly recommend!!!

Thread Vein Treatment

June 10, 2024

We consulted Mr Payne about thread veins in my legs and my husband’s nose. We are very pleased with the service he provided and the results. We were seen promptly for an initial consultation and Mr Payne was very thorough and informative. We were given an appointment for a week later for treatment which he, with his very capable assistant, carried out professionally and sympathetically. We are, therefore, delighted to give a 5 star rating.

My 3rd Small lump removal

May 31, 2024

I booked in for my 3rd small lump removal from my face with Simon at Changes Clinic.

From first meeting Simon I felt totally at ease, the procedure was explained fully and was a pain free pleasant procedure.

Simons surgical skills and attention to detail shine through in his meticulous results showing barely a mark on my face.

I highly recommend Simon to everyone looking for a trusted caring surgeon!
