Private Cyst Removal Clinics, London & Bristol
Same day treatment, quick and simple.
Cysts are closed pockets of tissue that can be filled with fluid, pus, or other material, creating a “lump or bump” that may feel like a small, smooth pea under the skin’s surface.
Cysts can develop as a result of infection, clogging of sebaceous glands, or around foreign bodies or ingrowing hairs. Cysts often occur on the face, scalp and body with the commonest types being a sebaceous cyst, epidermal or pilar cysts.
Most patients have already seen their doctor and been advised that these are harmless, which is correct. The problems occur when cysts get bigger and irritate; or get infected/rupture, which causes them to swell and become painful.
It is often best to get them removed before this happens and the scar from removal is far less noticeable. Occasionally the lump or bump may be a lipoma which is fatty lump slightly deeper in the skin that is also easily removed with minimal scarring.
Cyst Removal Costs from only £450
Same Day Removal
Cosmedics Skin Clinics have experienced doctors who are able to offer ‘same day’ cyst removal.
Removing cysts is a relatively quick procedure and painless as procedures are done under local anaesthetic. Our London and Bristol clinics offer a sterile medical setting suitable for small surgical procedures.
Please get in touch to discuss the options.
Cyst Removal from the Face, Scalp & Body
Patients are often reluctant to have cysts removed until they get to a size where they are visible or causing annoyance, due to unfounded concerns about scarring. If it gets infected or ruptures the scarring will be worse so it’s often preferable to remove them before this happens.
At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, we remove facial, scalp and body for sebaceous, epidermal and pilar cysts using techniques that seek to minimise the visible scarring. This we often do through a micro-excision, so the cyst is removed almost from the inside through a tiny little hole which only normally requires one or two stitches. This has far reaching benefits. Not only is the incision much smaller and the scarring is as a result much less, but also the risk of infection and wound healing is far superior.

The price is confirmed at consultation with one of Cosmedics’ experienced doctors.
To get an idea of the cost, patients can choose to send a photograph of their cyst to email@example.com and we will ask a Doctor to give an opinion. However, this does not replace a face to face consultation.
* We may advise patients to have their cysts sent for histology / testing. We charge the lowest prices possible for histology as we realise patients often feel it is not required, but occasionally rare or suspicious things are detected early on in lesions that can look normal, which is why this is good practice. The doctor will clarify this at the consultation.
We charge £50 for the consultation unless treatment is undertaken at the consultation. If treatment is arranged at a later date, the consultation fee is not redeemable against the price of treatment.
Patients will be given the appropriate advice on how to care for their wound and minimise scarring. This will be explained at the consultation to ensure that patients are making a fully informed decision about their treatment. A full understanding of aftercare is also important to enable patients to choose appropriate timing to fit in with events or holidays.
Depending on the procedure and whether stitches/dressings are required, there may be a follow-up appointment about a week later. This second appointment is included in the cost of cyst removal.
