Private Cyst Removal

Cysts are fluid or semi-fluid-filled sacs which appear just under the skin. They are often unsightly but are quick and easy to remove. Get in touch to find out how I can help with private cyst removal.

How can I help with Private Cyst Removal?

We will ensure that removing your cyst is as comfortable as possible. It is a good idea to take some paracetamol before your visit. Relaxing music and also a tapping technique that I use will make your procedure as pleasant as possible.

Having removed your cyst the wound will be closed as accurately as possible under magnification. The stitches used are soluble so there is no need for a return visit to remove sutures.

What is Private Cyst Removal?

Cysts occur when a sac filled with fluid forms on or under the skin. This can happen due to a number of reasons, including blockages in the oil glands or hair follicles. Cysts can be painful and can cause swelling, redness and inflammation.

If you have a cyst that is causing you pain or discomfort, it is important to see a doctor or dermatologist. They will be able to determine the best course of treatment for you. In some cases, cysts can be removed surgically.

What does the treatment for Private Cyst Removal involve?

Removal is a quick and straightforward procedure under local anaesthetic and your wound will be closed with absorbable stitches.

Recovery from Private Cyst Removal

Recovery needs time, and cyst removal recovery is no different. The face heals within a week or so, but other areas of the body take longer. Absorbable stitches usually last 2 -3 weeks, occasionally longer.

What you can expect from Private Cyst Removal

Your wound may be covered with a small dressing when you leave. Once this comes off, I usually ask patients to apply antiseptic cream to help the wound to heal well. For scalp cysts it is possible to wash your hair the next day, just being gentle with the area.

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.

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.
