Cysts are closed, fluid-filled or keratin filled sac formations which appear as large raised and inflamed bumps on the skin surface. Cysts can vary in size, contents and location on the body. Under the exceptional care of Cutis Cosmetic Facial Surgeon Dr. Ron Lemckert, ENT, our patients are treated to all the latest techniques and applications in cyst excision. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Lemckert to learn more about your cyst treatment options.
As a cosmetic surgery centre, Cutis is equipped in providing the highest level of care and safety to our patients. During a consultation with Cutis Cosmetic Facial Surgeon, Dr. Ron Lemckert, ENT, a general health assessment will be made to ensure treatment suitability. A topical anesthetic may be applied prior to treatment to alleviate discomfort. Our highly trained professionals take every safeguard to ensure our patients are fully informed and prepared for both pre and post-treatment care.
Depending on the treatment method recovery times can vary. Mild discomfort can occur immediately following draining and injection with patients immediately returning to daily activities. Depending on the size, placement and depth of an excision, recovery time and experience may differ. Mild discomfort, redness and swelling can be experienced. Healing of the treatment area can take up to two weeks but is usually less (with stitch removal at three to ten days dependent on area).
How It Works
Cysts can be treated through draining, injection or excision. Draining: a lancet is used to pierce the cyst and pressure is applied to drain the fluid – the sac is left intact. Injection: cortisone steriod is injected to reduce swelling. Excision: the cyst is removed in its entirety.
