Minor Cosmetic Skin Surgery at Reflect Clinic
In the last few years, we have noticed demand for minor cosmetic skin surgeries or mole removal in Manchester has increased, not solely in the North West but across the UK. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the NHS decided to no longer support or provide the removal of “lumps and bumps”, re-classifying these minor skin surgical procedures as cosmetic surgery.
As a clinic with families of our own, we appreciate that discovering a new skin development on either yourself or a family member can cause concern and distress. Moles, skin tags and cysts, for example, can not only affect your appearance and knock your confidence but also cause fears regarding your health and the possibility of skin cancer.
Here at Reflect Clinic, we want to allay these fears quickly and easily and provide you with minor cosmetic skin surgery and mole removal in Manchester that is stress-free so you feeling The Most Beautiful You again!

Will I need anaesthetic for Minor Cosmetic Skin Surgery?
All minor cosmetic surgery takes place under a local anaesthestic, with the procedure lasting anywhere between 30 to 60 minutes.
Once completed, your surgeon and aftercare team will go through some minor post-op checks and then discuss your aftercare plan with you.
We’ll provide all you need in a handy aftercare pack, but should you have further questions post-op, we are only a phone call away!
What happens if my skin condition needs further investigation?
Any suspicious lesion(s) removed from your face or body will be sent for further investigation to the laboratory for thorough testing, know as a Histology test.
This histology report helps us to exclude any form of skin cancer to put our minds at rest.
What skin conditions need Minor Cosmetic Skin Surgery?
The most commonly operated skin conditions are:
Mole Removal Manchester
Benign moles of any size and shape can appear anywhere on the face or body. Depending on their clinical picture, these can be removed either by a full excision or by a shaved excision.
Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCC)
BCC’s are the most common skin cancers worldwide and Reflect Clinic have vast experience in these type of removal procedures. We can also proceed with subsequent reconstructive surgery, if necessary.
Cysts and Lipomas
These skin conditions can increase in size, making you uncomfortable and affecting your self-confidence.
Keloid management procedures include steroid injections or surgical removal from certain areas (such as ear keloids).
Other benign lesions
Conditions such as skin tags, seborrheic keratoses, cherry angiomas and intra-dermal nevi can all be removed safely and efficiently under a local anaesthetic.
Tattoo scar excision
This procedure can be performed if the shape and size of the tattoo scar allow for surgical removal. This will be discussed thoroughly at your initial consultation.
Do I need an NHS Referral?
Since NHS budgets are limited you do not need any form of GP referral now as you would be having the procedure privately.
The NHS waiting list is typically fairly long, but now you do not need to wait and can be more in control of the process.
During your initial consultation with a member of our surgical team, they will assess your skin and discuss the best plan and procedure for you.
