Skin overview


Skin blemishes, scars, moles and cysts can all cause concern or embarrassment for patients. Fortunately most lesions, moles and cysts can be removed very easily under local anaesthetic, so much so that the patient can have a consultation and procedure done at the same time. Scars can also cause self-consciousness and Stephen McCulley can offer scar revisions to help improve the appearance of scarring. Skin cancer has become far more common over the past decade. Stephen McCulley can both diagnose and treat skin cancer with surgery.

Which procedures does this include?


Moles and Cysts

We are frequently asked to remove various skin lesions including moles and cysts that are a cause of embarrassment or concern for patients. Stephen McCulley can easily access the lesion and remove it under local anaesthetic. Patients can choose to have a consultation first or, if booked, have the consultation and procedure at the same time.

Skin Cancer

Skin cancers have become a lot more common over the last decade. There are two main types of skin cancer: melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. Stephen McCulley can diagnose and treat all forms of skin cancer.

Scar Revision

Poor quality scars can occur as a result of wounds that have been prevented from healing well initially (due to infection, poor stitching, tension in the wound, foreign body etc) or from an intrinsic healing problem of the patient. Depending on the patient, Stephen McCulley can use a number of techniques including direct excision, steroid injections, silicone tape or gel and pressure garments to treat and revise scarring.
