Scarring

We pride ourselves on producing the absolute minimum scarring. However the human body is a very variable thing and neither we nor anyone else can give a cast iron guarantee that you may not get a scar. We know that some operations are almost guaranteed to cause scarring for example Fibroma, and we will give you an assessment of the risks in your particular case. There is a treatment for some scarring using steroid injections into the scar. Although we have never needed to do this for our own patients we can offer this to anyone unfortunate enough to have a scar they would like reduced.

Histology

This is the microscopic study of tissue to check whether it is cancerous. it is time consuming and expensive but essential for suspicious lesions. We do not send skin tags and other obviously benign lesions off for histology unless specifically requested to do so.
