Private Mole Removal

Unwanted moles can be quickly and precisely removed under local anaesthetic. Get in touch today to book a private mole removal consultation.

How can I help with Private Mole Removal?

I can quickly remove your unwanted mole in one walk-in walk-out visit. After discussing your mole and expectations, I can immediately proceed with the mole removal.

Although most removed moles have no suspicious features (such as crusting/bleeding/altered shape or pigmentation), I always send them to the lab for a consultant pathologist examination. If your mole is changing, the NHS will provide a rapid diagnostic service to determine if it requires removal and, if so, will arrange for this to be done. If this is the case, please see your GP.

I have carried out precise surgery for many years and take pride in obtaining outstanding results and excellent patient satisfaction.

What is Private Mole Removal?

Moles occur when cells in the skin grow in a cluster, rather than being spread evenly throughout the tissue. They can be caused by a number of things, including genetics, sun exposure and hormones.

Most moles are benign, meaning they’re not cancerous. However, some moles can develop into melanoma, which is the most dangerous form of skin cancer.

What does the treatment for Private Mole Removal involve?

The area is first numbed with a local anaesthetic, and then the mole is precisely removed under magnification.

The tiny wound created will then be closed using extremely fine absorbable (so need for stitch removal visit!) stitches placed under magnification.

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.

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!
