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 “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.

Cyst Removal

The cost of cyst removal is totally inclusive of local anaesthetic, dressings and any follow-up required.

Description Surgery Cost Histology* Cost Total Cost
1 cyst / lipoma from £450 £85 £535
Larger/complex cysts or lipomas from £650 £85 £735

Prices above are a guide to the costs and the exact price can only be determined once the doctor has examined the mole and advice given as to the best way of removal. Larger and more complex moles are likely to incur a higher fee. 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.

* 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.

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.

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

Ollie

    A consultation is £50 but redeemable against treatment on the day. If you wish you can send a photograph of your cyst to info@cosmedics.co.uk and we will ask a Doctor to give advice.

Hi I have a cyst on my back n it’s abt 3cm so can u Pls tell me tht what I have to do?

Mishal

    Hello, the best way forward is to see one of our doctors for an assessment and explanation of the options. This costs £50 but is redeemable against treatment on the day. If you wish you can send a photograph of your cyst to info@cosmedics.co.uk and we will ask a Doctor to give advice or call our friendly team for further advice.

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.

R

    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.

Hi
Do you have any experience with the removal of a Dermatofibroma cyst on the lower leg
its about 1cm round had it for 10 yrs.
Thank you

Alex

    Yes we do. The only way to remove this sort of cyst is by ellipse excision with stitches. The procedure will replace the lump with a thin scar. This is a common problem often occurring after a insect bite or injury. If it’s in the lower leg we advise to rest for 2 days after in order to limit amount of wailing around. Our doctor estimates cost from £650-£850 plus £80 for testing. A consultation would be required to assess the cyst and confirm cost. Please contact us if you wish to book an appointment.

Hi
what is the cost for multiple cyst removals?

Scott

    We would recommend a consultation with one of our skin doctors to assess the number and size of cysts and can quote accordingly at that point. However, if you would like to send in a photo we can give an estimate in advance. You can email your photo to info@cosmedics.co.uk or call 020 7386 0464 to discuss further or book an appointment.

I have four lumps on my face that I would like removing. I once saw a programme on TV where a similar lump on a ladies face was treated using a laser and it reduced and disappeared within a matter of seconds. Is this a type of treatment you can provide?

K

    We do use a laser in some of our skin procedures, it depends what the problem is. If you could email a photo in confidence to info@cosmedics.co.uk, we’ll ask a doctor to take a look and provide more accurate advice on what treatment would be most appropriate for you.

Hi what is the cost of removing a lump under nipple in male chest.

umar

    Cyst removal costs from £450. However, we would need to see the problem to confirm costs properly. Larger cysts are more expensive, but if the issue is a skin tag, wart or mole, then it is likely to cost less. If you wish, you can email a photo in confidence to info@cosmedics.co.uk. This doesn’t replace a consultation, but can be helpful to get an idea of cost in advance.

hi,
I have a cyst on my nose right in the middle.
I want it to be removed but I don’t want any scar on my nose is there a way to do that? an excesion without stitches in the end?
Thanks

emese

    All surgery will leave some kind of mark, although scars do fade as the skin heals and the resultant mark is usually far less obvious than the original cyst. If you would like to email a photo of the cyst to info@cosmedics.co.uk we’ll ask a doctor to take a look and advise. This doesn’t replace a proper face to face consultation, but we should be able to give a bit more information and advice before you visit.

Have 2 large cysts on my scalp and also 3 smaller ones there as well! How much would this cost to be removed?

Rebecca

    Mole removal normally starts from £450 per mole, but there would probably be some cost saving for several. The doctor would need to assess this in person to give the best advice, but if you’d prefer to get a guide before your appointment, then you can email a photo of your cysts in confidence to info@cosmedics.co.uk. Thank you.

Hello,
I noticed on pictures that you removed a cyst between nose and eye and have no scars left. I did have a cyst in a similar place and their doctor cut open 2 inches on my face and left a huge scar that is bothering me. I also have scars from stitches holes. Can you remove it? Also I cysts growing on my forehead and under my lower lips. Is it from the food?

brian

    We suggest you come in for a consultation with one of our doctors, who can examine your cysts and scars and give you the best advice. Alternatively, you can send a photo or photos of the areas you are concerned about to info@cosmedics.co.uk and we’ll try to provide some preliminary advice from there.

Hi, my son has a cyst under his hair which he would like to have removed. Please can you advise whether he should shave the area before the consultation / operation or do you do that yourself. Many thanks,

Mike

    There’s no need to cut or shave any hair before the appointment, as it’s best to examine the cyst first and see what sort of treatment will be most appropriate.

Hi, I have cyst on my upper thigh, at first I didn’t really notice cause it was quite small , but now I think it’s bigger and became irritated and a bit painful. Can it still be removed and what’s the price?

Bowen

    We have removed some very large cysts – for example, Dr Ross Perry removed this one on a patient’s side – click to view large cyst removal before and after results.
    Large cysts are more complex and therefore quoted accordingly. You can send a photo in confidence to info@cosmedics.co.uk and request an estimate, although that is subject to confirmation at appointment when the cyst has been properly examined. If you wish to book, please request a consultation with Dr Ross Perry at any of our London clinics.

Can groin lump be treated at the clinic?

B

    We do treat quite major cysts and also offer treatment for skin tags/warts in the groin and genital area, but we can’t confirm 100% without seeing the lump in a consultation. We suggest you request an appointment with Dr Ross Perry. If you would like to get a view in advance of the consultation, you can email a picture in confidence to info@cosmedics.co.uk requesting a Doctor review. This doesn’t replace a consultation but can be useful at this stage while you are considering your options.

Liz Robbins

    Hi, our doctors would need to diagnose the type of lump before replying to your questions. If you could send a photo to info@cosmedics.co.uk, we will ask Dr Ross Perry to advise.
    Any diagnosis/treatment is still subject to confirmation at a face to face consultation, but a review of your photo may be very helpful to provide you with some information in advance.
