Minor Surgery


Whether for health or cosmetic reasons, we can remove most unwanted moles. Our specialists will explain the different removal methods and expected outcomes, giving you all the information you need.

Seborrhoeic Keratosis

These harmless growths that we get with age can easily be removed for an improved cosmetic result. 

Basal Cell Carcinoma

This common skin cancer is slow growing and can be easily be removed by one of our experts. Unfortunately, there are some rare subtypes (or particularly complex ones near the nose mouth or eye) that we cannot remove at Oxona, but instead we can refer you to an NHS consultant dermatologist or a private clinician who specialise in these difficult areas.

Skin tags

These common and some-what annoying tags can easily be removed by Oxona doctors using a freezing techniques or cautery. We can arrange to remove multiple tags in one session if needed.

Warts and Verrucas

We can treat warts and verrucas these with liquid nitrogen. This freezes them to a very low temperature and allows them to easily fall off. For the best possible result, we recommend combining this technique with an at home treatment using salicylic acid. It can take up to two or three sessions of liquid nitrogen to fully remove most warts and verrucas.

Cherry Angiomas

These are bright red harmless growths that usually appear with age. They are easily removed by our doctors with a cautery technique.

Malignant Melanoma

Melanomas are becoming more common in the UK as we spend more time in the sun. If we spot a melanoma during your consultation we can refer you immediately to an NHS consultant and you will be seen within 2 weeks for a formal diagnosis and surgery. If you wish to be seen privately, we can also refer you to a private consultant.

Keloid scars

Keloid scars can’t be removed completely, but there are several ways to improve their appearance. Oxona’s specialists offer consultation and a range of therapies, helping you choose the right path for you.


Lipomas are rarely a cause for concern, although it is important to have them checked out. We offer surgical removal procedures under local anaesthetic.


Sebaceous cysts are common but harmless. We recommend removal of unsightly, uncomfortable or infected cysts at one of our clinics with our experienced doctors.
