If you have a skin lesion such as a mole, cyst, wart or skin tag and would like it removed, it is usually a very simple procedure. You may want to take this step now because you have noticed changes in shape or colour, or it may be unsightly, painful or restricting your movement. You might have just become fed up with it, and decided it’s time to deal with it.
Most lesions are removed using a scalpel under local anaesthetic, which means you will be awake, but the area will be completely numb. Other techniques include applying chemical treatments or freezing the skin. Sometimes a laser is used to destroy the lesion while skin tags may be simply snipped off with surgical scissors.

As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important that you review your expectations thoroughly before you decide to proceed. Your specialist will explain the results you can expect, and will discuss the associated risks and alternatives to the procedure before going ahead.
Removing a skin lesion is usually a quick and straightforward procedure and is most often performed as an out-patient procedure. There is normally no need to stay in hospital overnight.
When you have a mole, cyst, wart or skin tag removed at Nu Cosmetic Clinic you will have the procedure performed by an experienced specialist in the safe and comfortable surroundings of a private hospital.
