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.

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.
