Minor Skin Surgery Service Prices

Mole check / skin lesion appointment with Consultant Plastic Surgeon  – £100

Excision of skin lesion / mole – £300 – £350 (dependant on size)

  • Our Plastic Surgeon uses a small knife (scalpel) to remove an entire lump or an area of abnormal skin, including a portion of normal skin down to, or through the fatty layer of skin. This technique is used for the removal of moles, cysts and lipomas. Stitches may be needed to close the wound. A bandage is then placed over the wound to protect it and prevent bleeding. 

Shave / curettage of skin lesion – £175

  • Up to 4 lesions 
  • Additional £50 per lesion
  • Our Plastic Surgeon uses a tool similar to a razor to remove a small section of the top layers of the skin (epidermis and a portion of the dermis). This is commonly used to remove skin tags and keratosis. The depth of the cut varies. A shave biopsy causes bleeding. Pressure and topical medication might be applied to stop bleeding. 

Cortisone Injection – £150 (per lesion)

  • Steroid injections can help soften and then shrink hard scars. Keloids and hypertrophic (lumpy) scars often soften after intralesional steroid injections, becoming less noticeable. Patients commonly require a series of injections (up to 6) to obtain a good result; this depends on the size of the scar. 

Cryotherapy – £150 (per session)

  • Actinic keratoses can be removed by freezing them with liquid nitrogen. Mr. Al Ghazal applies the substance to the affected skin, which causes blistering or peeling. As your skin heals, the damaged cells slough off, allowing new skin to appear. You may need a few sessions before complete resolution. 

Incisional Biopsy – £175 

  • Our Plastic Surgeon uses a circular tool to remove a small core of the skin; including deeper layers (epidermis, dermis and superficial fat). This is used to help with diagnosis of skin conditions and often is upon recommendation as part of the diagnostic plan from our Consultant Dermatologist. 

Histology – £150 (per lesion) 

  • Your tissue samples are sent to our partner laboratory for analysis. The results are typically shared with you in 2 weeks. If required, our Consultants will arrange a follow-up appointment if further management is required. 

Removal of sutures / dressings change – £50
