You may have just returned from holiday and want reassurance that a mole is nothing sinister, or you may have made up your mind that you would like to have your mole removed.
I offer same-day mole checks and can see and treat you during your initial consultation. Please mention that you may want to have treatment at the same time as your initial consultation when booking. I can offer this service because all of my consultations are within state of the art facilities in Birmingham, Solihull or Droitwich Spa, with fully equipped operating suites on site to allow the full range of procedures under local anaesthesia on a ‘walk in, walk out’ basis. I am registered with all major insurers and offer competitive fixed price packages for self-pay patients. Whether it is a mole that has recently changed, or one you just don’t like the look of, within a few hours of your consultation, it could be gone forever.
I accept referrals from your GP, dermatologist or directly from you. I can remove unsightly or worrying moles, cysts and lipomas from all parts of the body. Xanthelasma are deposits of cholesterol that occur on the upper and lower eyelid. You should ask your GP to check your cholesterol levels, as it may be elevated. They can be very obvious and are usually very easy to remove under local anaesthetic with minimal scarring.
Skin cancers are increasingly common and it is important to be aware of the risks of sun exposure. Fortunately, most can be treated successfully by excision under local anaesthetic. The priority is to completely remove the tumour, but the cosmetic outcome is crucial.
As a plastic surgeon, I take care to plan my excision such that the resultant scars will lie in an area of a natural skin crease or shadow. It is using this sort of planning that plastic surgeons gain the reputation for being able to perform scarless surgery.
No matter what the size or position of a lesion, it can be removed with maximum safety and minimum cosmetic deformity using plastic surgical techniques. These range from careful excision and direct closure, through the use of skin grafts to flap techniques involving the movement of tissues from neighbouring skin or from elsewhere in the body.
