External piles and skin tags

Surgical procedure

External haemorrhoid removal is a minor surgical procedure under local anaesthetic.


Skin tags are small flesh-coloured or brown growths that hang off the skin and look a bit like warts. They are very common and harmless. However, you may want to consider getting them removed if they are unsightly and affect your self-esteem, or cause hygenic problem. This procedure is not offered under the NHS, but our clinic is happy to provide it under local anaesthesia. 


Thrombosed external pile is an exquisitely painful lump in the perianal area. It can be beneficial to remove it completely in the first 96 hours, after that a non-operative approach is advisable. 

The procedure: 

We use cryospray - local anaesthetic combination, then we carry out the procedure with single use instrument. 

Self-absorbable stitches are applied, and you will loose them when absorbed (7-10 days time). Finally, a film-creating spray is applied to prevent bacterial infection.

One free follow-up appointment  is included in our package.
