Skin surgery and other medical dermatological procedures

Additional tests, including a skin biopsy (sampling of the skin), are sometimes needed to either help with the diagnosis or to treat an isolated skin lesion, which could be a skin growth or a simple mole. Dr Wong and Dr Vlachou are fully trained in performing skin biopsies for diagnostic and treatment purposes.

The whole procedure can take anything from 15 to 45 min, depending on the size of the lesion, type of procedure and where on the body the surgery is performed. Stitches might be needed as well as a dressing, and advice is given at the end of the procedure on how to look after the wound. Informed written consent is always sought prior to any minor surgical procedure.

Further minor procedures include treatments that remove skin lesions by non-surgical means. You can find a detailed list of those procedures along with the prices here. A medical dermatological consultation precedes any skin surgical or non-surgical procedure. Payments can be made by card via chip and pin or with cash on the day of your appointment. In the event of cancellation we kindly ask you to give us 48 hours notice.
