Blemish, Mole, Thread Vein Removal

Blemish, Mole, Thread Vein Removal

Skin lesions, or epidermoid cysts, lipomata, skin tags and moles, are found on or just below your skin. These can be removed along with thread veins.

1. How long is the recovery?
You should be able to go home the same day. You should be able to return to your normal activities after one day. Depending on your type of work, you should be able to return after one day.

2. I’m worried about pain.
There is only slight discomfort following the removal, but this usually subsides within a day or two.

3. Will I have a scar?
Every effort will be made to leave you without a large visible scar where possible. In the case of thread vein removal, the vein may appear bruised at first, but this soon fades and then disappears.

4. Can I avoid general anaesthetic?
This procedure is performed under local anaesthetic.

5. What is the cost?

Although harmless, blemishs, moles and thread veins can cause distress and a feeling of self-consciousness. When removing an epidermoid cyst, the Surgeon will make an elliptical cut over the cyst and then remove it.

To remove a lipoma, a straight cut is made directly over it. The lipoma is freed up from the tissues and removed.

A skin tag can simply be numbed with local anaesthetic and removed.

When removing a mole, a cut is made all the way around it using an elliptical cut.

Thread veins, almost known as  can appear on any part of the body. They appear when small clusters of red veins form just beneath the skin.

The process of removing thread veins is called sclerotherapy. The consultant may use a series of small, virtually painless injections targetted at the affected area. The chemical used will cause the vein to become sticky and eventually close off. At first the vein may look bruised but it will soon fade and disappear.
