Cyst Removal

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 “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 in-growing hairs.

They are benign lesions, which means that they are non-cancerous and therefore not a risk in medical terms. They don’t usually hurt at all, unless there is an infection or a rupture. However, unfortunately, this means that help is very rarely available via the NHS.

Sometimes a cyst may just disappear over time. However, if that doesn’t happen or it continues to slowly get bigger, then the patient may wish to seek treatment.

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

Patients are often reluctant to have cysts removed until they get to a size where they are visible or causing annoyance, due to concerns about scarring.

At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, we remove facial 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.

Cyst Removal on the Body

Cysts are commonly found on the body, neck and scalp and typically increase in size as we get older.  There is no obvious known cause for these cysts; however they are thought to come about from in-growing hairs.

Treatments in the past often involved larger surgical excisions. However, with modern surgical technologies, cysts can be removed through a micro-incision, leaving only a small scar as wtih facial cyst removal.

Cyst Removal

Description Surgery Cost Histology* Cost Total Cost
1 cyst / lipoma from £450 £80 £530
Larger/complex cysts from £650 £80 £730

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 info@cosmedics.co.uk and we will ask a Doctor to give an opinion. However, this does not replace a face to face consultation.

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.

Comments

Hello,

I’m 22, I’ve had a cyst on my right cheek bone for about 2 years, which occasionally swells & then contracts. It’s reasonably painful when it’s swollen. On average its size is increasing and is currently about the size of a pea.

Does a consultation cost anything? I’m based in Bristol.

Many Thanks,

Ollie

Hello, could you tell me what your procedure is called for cyst removal from the head/scalp that does not cause scarring, or that leaves minimal scarring? I am in the United States, (Utah) looking for a doctor who will do what you describe. Thank you.

    It is a minor surgical procedure. Our doctors use careful techniques to minimise scarring, but any procedure will leave some mark. The aim is for this to be small and neat so that it heals well and fades with time.
