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.

Extremely impressed and would highly recommend Simon

I recently had two cysts on my head removed by Simon and his lovely nurse Becky. They made me feel at ease and the quality and care was very professional. Simon explained everything in detail, was extremely focused and Becky was just the tonic to settle any nerves.

There was very little discomfort, the aftercare was explained in detail and I’m happy to say, after 6 weeks the results are amazing.

I would highly recommend Simon and his team without hesitation.

Removal of two large anal skin tags.

I would like to express my thanks to Simon Payne for the removal of the two large anal skin tags that were a terrible nuisance.

The procedure was painless due to the application of the numbing gel and subsequent injections and was completed quite quickly.

I had expected a lengthy healing process but was very surprised that after two to three weeks with little pain and no bleeding the problem had been successfully resolved.

I would certainly recommend consulting at his surgery and it was also far less expensive than other private clinics. Ten out of ten!

Simon removed four cysts from my head. He was very kind, attentive and a good listener during consultation. He explained everything clearly and I felt happy and confident to go ahead with the procedure. The removal took just 45 minutes and I am delighted with the results. In 6 weeks everything was healed and stitches gone, and no after care was needed. Thank you Simon.
