Surgical Removal of Moles, Cysts, Lipomas, Skin Tags

Service Overview

Green Kite Healthcare provides a high quality private service for the removal of various inconvenient and unsightly skin lesions, including moles, cysts, lipomas and skin tags that are not covered by the NHS.

The service comprises a 'one-stop' appointment that includes an initial consultation which can then be followed by a simple surgical procedure, using local anaesthetic. The appointment will last for up to 30 minutes and can include multiple lesion removals subject to their type, size and location.

The vast majority of procedures that we perform do not require stitches, although cyst removals typically do. As a result it is usually only possible to remove one cyst within an appointment.

Types of Lesion

This service can treat the following types of skin lesion:

  • Moles
  • Cysts
  • Skin Tags
  • Lipomas
  • Keratosis

As a general rule we can treat skin lesions that are up to 1.5cm diameter on the face and up to 5cm diameter elsewhere on the body, although this does depend upon exact location and complexity/proximity to sensitive areas.

Patient Feedback

"Extremely Happy, Excellent Service"

"This is a great service - really well organised and the doctor and nurse were friendly but professional. No pain, no stitches and healing well. Thank you!"

"So much easier going to a local clinic where you can actually park; and far less threatening than going to a hospital."

" Everything in one appointment works well - I was in and out in 30 minutes and went straight back to work."

"I’ve visited before and had a couple of moles removed. I was so impressed with the service that I wondered if I could book another appointment"
