Our highly experienced team of surgeons have performed thousands of cyst removals, from simple to complex procedures, making them the top choice for cyst removal in London. At the Astrum Medical Clinic, all our doctors who you will perform your surgery are highly experienced in scar minimisation techniques and work for London's leading hospitals and trusts. To have your cyst removed, it strictly requires surgical removal as using oral medication or creams is not a real way of effectively treating a cyst. Our surgical removal procedure is also more effective than a shave or a laser because we do the full excision removal which means the cyst is cut out. It is important to have this procedure done by a specialist because unlike the removal of other skin lesions, having your cyst removed will always be required as cutting the skin will undoubtedly leave a mark. While some clinics will advocate methods that involve bursting the cyst and squeezing the contents out of your skin, our method is more effective because we remove the entire cyst intact as a ball which ultimately reduces the risk of infection and spreading the cyst content. As a result, we are proud to say that we have amongst the lowest recurrence rates due to our specialist techniques. In addition to the scar minimisation techniques, although you will be left with a small mark, it will fade over time. Ultimately, cysts can recur so it is important to choose the right method of removal to avoid disappointment later or returning for another procedure. Aftercare You'll be given the dressings you need and advised when to change them. We recommend to keep the wound dry for 2 days following the procedure. You'll be given a quick wound check a few weeks following the procedure, and a follow up consultation if needed. If there's something you're not sure about or you experience pain or redness, give us a call. Don't exercise as much for at least two weeks after procedure, especially in areas such as the back or legs. Just ask us if unsure. Prices Doctor consultation is £75. This also includes a follow-up some time following surgery just to check everything has healed up ok. We allocate enough time and are ready should you choose to have the treatment done on the same day straight after the consultation.
