At Sussex Premier Health, our one stop skin lesion removal clinic allows for consultation and procedure to remove a skin lesion all in one visit.

This clinic treats minor skin lesions including skin tags, cysts and warts.

A member of our team will discuss with you the type of skin lesion that you have and may ask for you to email a photograph of the lesion to our hospital in order to check that you are suitable for the clinic. If suitable, you will then be offered an appointment.

You can read about more about the type of techniques used for removal of skin lesions and what to expect on the day of your appointment below.##

What to expect from your visit:

You will have an initial consultation with the Consultant surgeon who will go over the information that you provided to our Self-Pay team, examine you and go through the procedure and potential risks.

Following your consultation, you will go with your Consultant and a nurse to the Outpatient treatment room for your procedure. The procedure will usually last no more than 30 minutes.

The technique that your Consultant will use to remove your skin lesion will depend on factors such as its size and where it is on your body. Your Consultant will advise you on which method is most appropriate for you and may use a local anaesthetic depending on which technique is used.

Techniques to remove a skin lesion include:

  • Some lesions can be shaved down to the level of the surrounding skin. Your consultant may use a surgical blade to do this.
  • Your consultant can remove skin tags with surgical scissors.
  • Certain lesions are cut out entirely and your consultant will close the wound with stitches (these may be dissolvable) or skin glue.
  • Some skin lesions may also be frozen off with liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy) or treated with creams.

Your consultant will apply a dressing to the wound, if necessary, but some wounds heal better if they are left uncovered.

Following your visit:

If you have sutures, you may need to come back to have them removed – this will be included in your package price.

If you have had a sample sent off for Pathology, you will be contacted with the results if they return as malignant.

If further treatment is required, this will be discussed with you and will incur an additional cost.

After a local anaesthetic, it may take several hours before the feeling comes back to the affected area. Take special care not to bump or knock the area. You will usually be able to go home when you feel ready. It is advisable not to drive after local anaesthesia as it can, though rarely, cause dizziness.

Your Consultant or nurse will give you some advice about caring for your healing wound before you go home. You will be discharged with a leaflet explaining who to contact if you have any concerns.

You will be given advice about the removal of any dissolvable stitches after your procedure. Usually, this is after about seven days, if the stitches are on your face, and 10 to 14 days if they are on another part of your body. The length of time any dissolvable stitches will take to disappear depends on what type you have. However, for most skin lesion removal procedures, they should usually disappear in about two to four weeks.

Your consultant may send the lesion to the laboratory for tests. You will be informed of the results through a letter from your Consultant, a copy of which will also be sent to your GP. On some occasions, a biopsy result may show some abnormalities. If this does happen your Consultant will ask to see you to explain the results and the next course of action*

*This will incur further costs. We will be able to quote you for any additional treatment required following your results.

The all-inclusive cost to attend the one-stop skin lesion removal clinic ranges from £484 – £938, dependent upon the number and types of lesions.

Our helpful self-pay team will be able to tailor a fixed price for your treatment dependent on your requirements.

If your consultant advises against removing the skin lesion on the day of the appointment, you may be charged for the consultation. The consultant will be able to advise on further treatment options available here at Sussex Premier Health.

We will not charge you for histology if this is not required; this is your consultants decision.

Please report to the Sussex Premier Health reception. You will be asked to make payment for your procedure on the day by credit/debit card.

Your appointment will last for approximately 30 minutes and includes consultation and removal of lesions, plus histology* if required.

*If your lesion is found to be malignant, you will be contacted to discuss further treatment. This would incur an additional cost.

If your consultant is unable to remove the lesion on the day, or you choose not to proceed, there will be a £200 consultation charge and you will be re-booked for the procedure at a later date. We will be able to provide you with a fixed price for this treatment.
