Dermatology Minor Plastic Surgery
The advantages of a ‘serial excision’ are that not only is the scar much smaller but it also allows time for the skin to relax and not distort the surrounding areas before doing a second refinement procedure 6-9 months later to reduce it further.
Surgery is a skilled speciality within medicine that should only be carried out in a medical facility by a specialist doctor or surgeon.
At Cosmedics we favour the least invasive approach to surgery as possible to achieve the highest possible satisfaction. We are also fortunate to have premises where we can ‘see and treat’ patients on the same day.
All our patients have pre-operative consultation and are fully informed of the risks and expected results of the procedure prior to signing a consent form.
All surgical treatments require a local anaesthetic which is an injection administered into the skin just numbing the area that needs to be treated.
All surgical procedures carry a very low risk of infection, scarring and other possible wound healing problems.
All our doctors will give you an honest professional opinion as to whether undertaking the surgical route is the best option and may discuss alternative choices if appropriate before proceeding.
Moles, skin tags, warts and cyst removal are the commonest reasons why surgery is required with the shave excision being the most popular for cosmetic moles and the ellipse excisions for more difficult or darker moles. Costs for mole removal.

Will it hurt?
All our procedures are made ‘pain-free’ with appropriate and safe use of local anaesthetic or numbing cream. Our practitioners are all medically qualified and procedures are carried out in safe medical settings.
How does local anaesthetic work?
A local anaesthetic is a pharmacological agent that is injected either into the immediate area that is to be treated, so only numbing a tiny area or can be used in a regional block which involves numbing a larger area. The area will be completely painless afterwards.
What type of local anaesthetic do you use?
In minor surgery, it is commonplace to use lignocaine with adrenaline as this helps minimise any bleeding during the surgery.
What if I’m sensitive to local anaesthetic?
Very rarely people can feel their heart race or feel a bit faint which passes in a few minutes. Lignocaine with adrenaline is frequently used by dentists, so if you have not had a reaction when a having any tooth treatments then you are unlikely to have any issues.
Anaesthetic injections are also available without adrenaline and are used for surgery on the fingers and toes as well as for anyone who is sensitive to adrenaline. Most anaesthetics work within 1-2 minutes and last for 1-3 hours.
It is always important to have a thorough medical consultation and any local anaesthetic injected in a medical setting.
Do you offer numbing cream?
Anaesthetic creams such as EMLA are available for less invasive skin treatments and provide a good numbing effect.
