Who Is Mole Removal For?

Most skin lesions can be safely left alone. You may want the skin lesion removed for cosmetic reasons or to be reassured that it is not cancer.

What are the benefits of a Mole Removal?

Surgery is the only reliable way to remove skin lesions but you may simply leave them alone.

What happens During Surgery?

The operation is usually performed under a local anaesthetic. The operation usually takes 15 to 25 minutes. 

When removing a sebaceous cyst, your surgeon will try to remove it whole as this makes sure that none of the cyst wall is left behind and prevents it from coming back. Your surgeon will make an elliptical (oval) cut over the cyst and then cut out the cyst.

A skin tag can simply be numbed with local anaesthetic and then removed. 

When removing a mole, your surgeon will cut all the way around it using an elliptical cut.

How long will I stay in hospital?

You may be able to go home the same day.

What is my recovery time?

 You should be able to return to work the next day unless your work will place a strain on the stitches. It is unusual for these procedures to restrict any daily activities you carry out.
