What to expect when booking a Minor Surgery appointment

Posted by: jenna-alban  /   Category: Uncategorized   /   1 Comment

ESS Clinic provides a minor surgical service for patients who wish to have benign (non-cancerous) lesions removed. Most commonly these lesions are skin tags, cysts or moles.



Initial Assessment

In order for the correct procedure to be recommended, it is important for you to have an accurate diagnosis of the lesion being removed.  For any surgical procedure we undertake at the clinic, an initial assessment by a dermatologist is performed. During this assessment, a medical history is taken, the lesion is examined and a diagnosis made.  The options of treatment can then be discussed so that you are aware of the risks and benefits of all the surgical treatments available.

Surgical Procedure

All surgical procedures are performed under local anaesthetic, so you can eat and drink as normal on the day of your surgery appointment.  ESS Clinic has a purpose built treatment room where surgical procedures are undertaken. All procedures are performed by specialists who have dermatology and skin surgical experience.


Once you have had your surgical procedure, you will be provided with verbal and written advice on how to look after your wound.  If you have had stitches, a follow-up appointment will be booked for you to have these removed at the clinic.

Analysis of the lesion removed

For most minor surgery procedures, we recommend that the lesion removed is sent for histological examination. This involves the lesion being sent to a histopathologist who will examine the lesion under a microscope. A written report will be provided to the clinic and you will be informed of the results within 7 days of your procedure.


Information in relation to the cost of a minor surgery procedure can be found on the ESS Clinic Pricing page.
