    Skin surgery

    Our theatre is fully recognised by all UK health insurers and registered with the Care Quality Commission

    What is a Skin surgery

    The removal of a lesion of skin. The tissue removed is sent to a laboratory to be analysed.

    What is involved in a Skin surgery

    Local anaesthetic is injected into the area to numb the involved skin and the Dermatologist removes a skin from the affected area using a precise surgical punch, scalpel, curette or blade, depending on the location and nature of the lesion.

    What are the risks or potential side effects of a Skin surgery

    Bruising may occur. Whenever the skin is cut a scar will result.

    What aftercare is required for a Skin surgery

    A dressing will be applied to keep in place for 24 to 48 hours. Heavy exercise and alcohol should be avoided. Normally patients can return to work following a procedure.

    What is the cost of a Skin surgery

    The cost is based on the number of lesions being removed and if any additional tests are required such as swabs or immunofluorescence, but typically ranges from £700-£1200. For new patients, a consultation is required prior to the procedure. You can find our fees here.
