Sebaceous Cyst Removal

Cosmetic dermatologists are able to remove pesky sebaceous cysts a few different ways. The most common and effective method of cyst removal is through surgery. However, some patients opt for less invasive methods such as drainage.

Cyst removal can be completed with a short, outpatient procedure. When cyst removal through surgical techniques is done properly, a cyst will typically be gone for good. Choosing a skilled board-certified surgeon is essential for optimal cyst removal.

At a Glance


30-45 minutes










The ideal candidate for sebaceous cyst removal is one that is either unhappy with the appearance of cysts or someone that has a cyst that has grown uncomfortably large. Cysts typically lay close to the surface of the skin and can be easily noticed even at a distance.

Most sebaceous cysts are located on the neck, face, scalp, or torso. Surgical cyst removal is possible for these areas, as well as rogue cysts, found elsewhere on the body.

Cyst removal is usually pretty quick lasting as little as 30-minutes. However, more difficult surgeries such as underneath the hairline can affect the length of the procedure. It’s recommended you plan an afternoon for your cyst removal.

Instant, noticeable results are possible for cyst removal. The skin will appear flatter as the fluid-like material is removed. Full results can be seen as redness and swelling dissipate.

The size, position, and method of removal can all be determining factors about recovery time. In most cases, little to no downtime is needed for cyst removal.

If a cyst is completely removed by surgical means, it’s unlikely that the cyst will return. Drainage methods are slightly less effective but in the majority of cases, only one treatment is necessary.

Jonquille is a delightful lady. Very patient focused and very experienced. My experience of Fillers and Anti Wrinkle Injections at Mallucci London has been nothing short of fantastic.

I suffer from super sensitive skin and Kully recommended a product which has helped me to see a real difference. My skin health has improved and is stronger in its own kind of way.

I was recommended laser hair removal which I was a little hesitant about initially as I have sensitive skin. However I have seen a significant difference and feel like I don’t have to worry about my hair anymore. Mallucci London genuinely care about the best interests of their clients.
