Cysts are normally harmless and typically occur on the face, neck and body as well as the scalp. They often develop because of a blocked skin pore, ingrown hairs and family history.
Cysts normally start as a pea-sized lump under the skin and slowly grow with time. If you are unlucky they can become infected and this often leads them to swell, become painful and red.
Cyst Surgery Clinics
Our team of doctors, plastic surgeons and dermatology specialists are able to offer expert surgery to remove all types of cysts, abscesses, lumps, bumps and lipomas at our dedicated CQC registered clinics in London and Bristol.
We have treated thousands of patients who cant believe who quick and easy the process is and just wish they had done it sooner. Costs for cyst removal surgery starts from £500.
Same day treatment
Most cyst removals are done on the same day as part of our unique ‘See & Treat’ service and only take 15-20 minutes.
The area where the cyst is located is ‘numbed’ with a small injection so you don’t feel any discomfort during the treatment. Our doctors and surgeons use micro excision techniques to minimise scarring. There will be some stitches that will need removing about 7-14 days later and a dressing applied over the top. You can carry on normal activities apart from heavy exercise until the stitches are removed.

At Cosmedics we are aware of peoples perception it might be painful. This is not the case as we use nano sized needles to numb the area first so you don’t feel anything during the procedure.
What can happen if a cyst is left untreated?
If left untreated, benign cysts can cause complications including infection; where the cyst fills with bacteria and pus and becomes an abscess which leads to be a bigger wound and more scarring.
How do I know if it’s a cyst?
It can be very difficult to self-diagnose a cyst, as there are so many types. Please send your photo to email@example.com. We’ll ask one of our doctors or surgeons to take a look and give you their thoughts and advice. This is no substitute for a face to face consultation, but can be a really helpful place to start if you’re not sure.
What scar can I expect after a cyst removal?
Our doctors use micro excisions where possible to any scarring is kept to a minimum and heal quickly.
What are cysts and why do we get them?
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. They can develop as a result of infection, clogging of sebaceous glands, or around foreign bodies or ingrown hairs. Cysts often occur on the face, scalp and body with the commonest types being a sebaceous cyst, epidermal or pilar cysts.
What are the most common types of cysts?
Cysts can be formed for a variety of different reasons. They can be caused by infections, inherited diseases, chronic inflammation and most commonly blockages in ducts. The common type of cysts are:
Epidermoid & Pilar cysts
An Epidermoid cyst is a small benign bump filled with keratin protein, often these occur if you have trauma around a hair follicle within the skin. An Epidermoid cyst grows deeper into the skin rather and eventually grows outwards to the surface which then the cyst is properly formed and able to be removed.
Sebaceous cysts often form from the sebaceous glands. These glands are part of the skin and hair follicles, if they get ruptured or blocked the glands then generate sebaceous cysts. The sebaceous glands make the oil for your hair and skin, these cysts are made from sebum and are less common than Epidermoid cysts.
Chalazia cysts are benign cysts that occur on your eyelids when the oil gland duct is blocked, These cysts can be quite painful and cause blurred vision, painful swelling and can often grow quite large. Chalazia cysts are best to get diagnosed and removed as soon as possible before the symptoms cause too much pain for the individual.
