How much does a Skin Lesion surgery cost?

The cost of Skin Lesion surgery is highly personalised depending upon the requirements of the patient and the outcome of the medical assessment conducted by Mr Ammar Allouni.

What is Skin Lesion surgery?

Skin lesions are abnormal lumps, bumps, ulcers, sores or coloured areas on the skin. There are two types of skin lesions - primary and secondary. Primary skin lesions are present from birth or develop during a person's life. Secondary skin lesions are as a result of irritated primary tissue disorders that cause them to appear. They occur if someone were to scratch a mole until it bleeds as an example. Many different conditions such as acne, herpes simplex, allergic eczema and impetigo can cause a skin lesion. Skin lesion surgery is done to remove such lesions.

What are the benefits of Skin Lesion surgery?

Skin lesion surgery is recommended to eliminate cancerous skin growths or identify the source of the lesion.

About Skin Lesion 

If a mole, wart, skin tag or other skin growth on your body hampers your look aesthetically and lowers your self-confidence, then you should opt for a skin lesion surgery.
Lesions may be excised from the skin, frozen off or removed by the application of heat, laser or light treatment. If a patient undergoes a surgical operation, his or her wound might take anywhere from three to seven weeks to heal. It takes approximately four weeks for a lesion to scab and fall off after undergoing cryotherapy.

Skin lesion surgery is performed under local anaesthetic and usually spans around 0.5 hours. The types of skin lesion surgeries are mentioned below.

Complete excision (excision biopsy): This is the usual method for removing a lesion where cancer cannot be ruled out. It is a form of skin biopsy, which means the entire skin lesion is excised and removed. The whole lesion as well as some surrounding normal skin are removed using a surgical blade. Then the wound is closed using stitches and covered with a dressing.

Partial removal (shave biopsy): Partial excision is a method of ‘shaving off’ extra growths that stick out from your skin. A cut is made through the lesion’s base, which is in level with your surrounding skin. Cauterisation is done which uses heat to seal your skin to prevent bleeding.

Heat treatment (electrocautery): In this procedure a heated coil is used to get rid of the lesion’s base. Electrocautery may be used to remove skin tags. It is also used after other treatments to prevent bleeding.

Creams and gels: To get rid of a wart or actinic keratosis, you may be prescribed a skin lesion removal cream or gel that contains medicines such as imiquimod, salicylic acid, 5-fluorouracil or diclofenac. You are required to apply the cream or gel on a daily basis for several weeks.

Freezing (cryotherapy): Liquid nitrogen is an effective treatment for actinic and seborrhoeic keratoses, warts and skin tags. For around 10 seconds your doctor applies liquid nitrogen to the region with cotton wool or a spray. A blister appears after the therapy. It dries up and forms a scab that falls off one to two weeks later (sometimes longer).

Scooping away (curettage): This procedure can be used for warts, pyogenic granuloma, actinic keratoses and seborrhoeic keratoses. The lesion is scooped away with a curette “spoon” using delicate pressure. This may be administered in combination with electrocautery (heat treatment).

Laser therapy: If you have a wart, a dermatofibroma or an actinic keratosis patch on your lip you may be recommended a laser treatment.

Photodynamic therapy (PDT): PDT is a type of photodynamic therapy that employs light to activate a chemical solution applied to your tumour, which destroys it. If you have actinic keratosis, you may be recommended PDT.

During your first appointment at our clinic, Mr Ammar Allouni will clarify all your questions regarding the procedure. He will recommend surgery only if it is the best option for you. You will also be encouraged to clarify any doubts regarding the recovery period, post-surgical care and the expected outcomes.

He will take your detailed medical history and conduct relevant clinical assessments, which might be followed by a 3D projection of the expected result – if surgery is indicated in your case. Additionally, he will inform you of the potential risks and complications of the surgery. 

Some of your medications might require adjustments prior to the surgery or additional drugs may be prescribed. You will be asked to discontinue drugs like aspirin and herbal medications (if any) for a few days before and after the procedure. 

Mr Ammar Allouni will also inform you about certain precautions to be taken before and after surgery. He will instruct you to quit smoking and to avoid consuming alcohol and recreational drugs for a few days before and after the surgery.

  • Pre-Surgical Care: After your full body assessment and before your surgery day you get the list of precautionary measures – what all you should avoid and what all you should do for the best results.


  • Day of Surgery: Mr Allouni follows the BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) guidelines for all cosmetic procedures. On the day of surgery, your health status will be reassessed thoroughly and a qualified nurse will prepare you for the procedure. Mr Ammar Allouni and his team will ensure your well-being and comfort throughout the procedure.


  • Post-Surgical Care: Mr Allouni and his team will be at your side while you are recovering. Once you are ready to go home you will be receiving a proper guideline of dos and don’ts that you need to follow and instructions on how often you need to be in touch with your surgeon to share your recovery status.


  • Follow up Stage – FREE: You will be provided with a schedule about your follow up appointments. All your follow-ups with your surgeon will be completely free.


  • Personalised Care: Once you have gone through your surgery, you can always directly contact with Mr Ammar Allouni and his team in case you face any issue or concern in future.
Post the skin lesion surgery, you may feel soreness which will gradually subside. The suggested time off work is based on case to case basis as it is dependent on individual recovery time.
Once a benign skin lesion is removed from the body you can go home immediately. However, if you are diagnosed with skin cancer, you may be required to be under surveillance for monitoring depending on the kind of skin cancer you have. The potential risks of skin lesion surgery include minor skin infection, wounds infection and lumpy or sensitive scars.
