Sentinel lymph node biopsy

This type of surgery is performed when a higher risk primary melanoma has been diagnosed after an initial biopsy. It determines whether the melanoma has spread to the surrounding lymph nodes. Knowing whether the melanoma has spread to lymph nodes also provides an estimate of the risk of potential spread to other parts of the body.

Benign skin lesions

(moles, lipomata, tattoo removal)

Removal of unsightly moles, lipomata (fatty lumps) and tattoos are easily performed under local/general anaesthesia with minimal scarring.

Scar revision

If you have unsightly or unwanted scars following trauma or previous surgery, a scar revision can help improve the scar’s appearance by placing the new scar in a preferable location and direction.

Hidradenitis reconstruction

Hidradenitis Suppurativa is a painful condition leading to abscesses and scarring in the armpits and groin. It is often unsightly, causing pain and embarrassment. Surgical revision allows the removal of affected tissue, whilst reconstruction can improve the appearance and reduce recurrences.
