TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Many different lumps and bumps can appear on the skin of the face and body. The lesions can be present from birth, may develop over time, or appear as a consequence of other diseases. If you're concerned about a mole, tag, or skin growth because it's unsightly, irritated or changing appearance, Bella Vou provides expert lumps, bumps, and mole removal, without waiting lists.

The plastic surgeons at Bella Vou have extensive experience and expertise in excising skin lesions and minimising scarring. The clinic also provides specialist pathology analysis to check for evidence of cancer and other abnormalities.

Should all lumps be removed?

It's not necessary to remove all lumps and bumps. Some skin cancers can present as lumps but generally, tend to have a change in the overlying skin as well. A lump that is under the skin, which is quite small and moves on pressing it, is commonly either a lipoma or a cyst. These are amenable to removal by surgery under a local anaesthetic.

Will I be left with a scar?

All surgery leaves scarring. Our surgeons will do their utmost to ensure the scar is as small and discreet as possible, but it will also be dependent on where the lesion is. Plastic surgeons, like the specialists at Bella Vou, are expert in making incisions and suturing in ways that minimises scarring.

Should I be worried that the lesion is cancer?

Not all lesions are cancer; therefore, the chances of this are quite low. The many lesions that do grow and cause a nuisance tend to be benign (non-cancerous). But, if there is a lesion that concerns you, then you should have it checked out.

At Bella Vou, our surgeons are very experienced in dealing with skin cancers. Collectively, they have removed over 3000 lesions and reconstructed these with either direct straight-line closure, skin grafts, or local flaps. Therefore, you will be reassured that when you are assessed, they will examine the lesions appropriately and suggest the necessary treatment.

If the lesion does look suspicious, then when the lesion is removed, it will be sent to the laboratory to be assessed under a microscope. This will allow a definitive diagnosis and determine if any further surgery is warranted.

At Bella Vou we provide various payment options meaning you can spread the cost and enjoy a confident outlook at a price you can afford.

YOUR SIMPLE
5 STEP
JOURNEY

YOUR SIMPLE 5 STEP JOURNEY

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert, accredited cosmetic surgeon with no obligation to proceed to treatment. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss your concerns about your skin lump or bump.

Bella Vou will always give you an honest and impartial professional opinion. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘We make sure that we advise people correctly about whether surgery is right for them. We treat everyone as if they were our family. We might turn people away, suggest alternative treatments, or we may suggest that they go to a different specialist at another establishment. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your surgeon

You will be offered another appointment with your surgeon before the procedure, should you have any questions or concerns.

Step 3. Preparation for lumps, bumps and mole removal surgery

No specific preparation is needed before mole, lump, and bump removal. However, you may be asked to stop taking some medicines such as aspirin and ibuprofen to prevent bruising and bleeding. Quitting smoking can help improve wound healing and prevent complications.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be personally welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre, where your surgeon will greet you.

Step 4. What happens during lumps, bumps and mole removal surgery

The cosmetic surgeon carefully cleanses the skin and injects the local anaesthetic to ensure the area is numb.

The surgeon makes a small elliptical incision in the skin around the lump or bump. They will carefully remove the patch of skin containing the lesion and stitch the wound closed. The sutures are hidden under the skin and absorbable, so they do not need removal.

The wound will be a fine, straight line, which follows the body's natural creases and expression lines so that the scar is unobtrusive. Following surgery, the wound is covered with a simple dressing.

Step 5. Recovery from Lumps, Bumps, and Mole Removal Surgery

You can go home on the day of the procedure. It's essential to rest on the day of surgery; your recovery will depend on the size and position of the lesion.

In general, you should avoid bending or heavy lifting for two weeks. After this, you can introduce gentle exercise, increasing activity as your fitness increases, and any discomfort eases.

The sample is sent to a pathology laboratory to look for cancer and other abnormalities; this can take up to a month.

The staff at Bella Vou will carefully monitor your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, the team are always on hand to offer support, day and night. You will have a follow-up appointment with your surgeon at around four weeks to discuss your results, and check your wound and your recovery.
