Depending on the type, size and location of the lesion you may need to have it surgically removed in clinic or theatre. You will need a consultation with one of our Consultants to discuss which type of excision is best for you. Alternately if the lesion is positioned on the surface of the skin, you may benefit from laser removal.

We have launched our laser skin clinic, which offers treatment for the removal of moles, warts, skin tags and other lesions located on the surface of the skin including the face and eyelids.

The guide price provided on this page is for the lesion to be removed in clinic, for information about having a surgical excision of a lesion i.e. removed in theatre, click here.

Before considering surgery, it is important to be aware that all surgical procedures carry a certain amount of risk and it is important that you understand the risks involved with a skin excision of simple lesion or mole removal.
