Wart, Skin Tag, Verrucae, Milia Removal by excision, cutting and shaving at MUMS Solihull

MUMS Private GPs have specialist extended roles in dermatology and minor surgery and offer the following services 4 days per week:

  • Excision and shave removal of warts
  • Excision and shave removal of skin tags
  • Excision and shave removal of milia
  • Excision and shave removal of verrucae

Although they will usually disappear over a period of months or years, some people simply want skin tags/warts etc removed because of their unsightly appearance. They are often small tags on the neck, around the armpits, near the groin and underneath the breast. They can bleed if caught on jewellery and/or clothing.

These warts, skin tags, verrucae and milia do not cause harm, but some people find them embarrassing and verrucae can be painful when standing or walking. If your over-the-counter attempts have failed or your tags/warts have returned, you may want a quick and permanent removal at MUMS. Warts and verrucae are a form of virus and can spread and they can take months to appear.

You may wish to have your warts, skin tags, verrucae and milia shaved off or excised as opposed to cryotherapy as cryotherapy can often mean repeated appointments.

We also offer removal of lumps/bumps/lipomas, skin lesions and sebaceous cyst removal and ganglion cyst aspiration or removal.  If you wish to have cryotherapy instead of minor surgery, you can click here.

If your skin tag or wart is in the anal area, please see our specific anal wart/anal tag removal information.

Excision, cutting, and shaving removal is for people aged 16 and over. Our experts will assess the warts, skin tags, verrucae and milia using a special dermatology scope and offer removal during the same appointment. The area will be numbed with local anaesthetic, and we will obtain your consent prior to the removal.

MUMS clinician will explain to you his/her findings upon assessment and whether they feel the wart or tag appears suspicious and requires laboratory pathology analysis to rule out anything sinister. If we are to send the tissue to the laboratory the cost is £220.00 for analysis.

MUMS clinician will explain to you how he/she is going to remove it and whether excision, cutting or shaving is the best option given its nature and location. You will probably need a couple of stitches if cutting or excision is performed as opposed to shaving. This is a straightforward procedure.

There is only one assessment fee, regardless of the number of tags/warts to be removed and we can remove multiple tags/warts within the same appointment. There are no hidden costs.

Removal of skin tags and warts is swift and affordable at MUMS – in a CQC registered environment with only expert clinicians who are suitably qualified to carry out private minor surgery.

You will be given patient information to take home and offered a free of charge follow up appointment.

We offer this service on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. You do not need a referral from your GP. The NHS does not offer this service as it is regarded as a service of limited clinical value and regarded as a cosmetic procedure so opting for private removal of warts and skin tags is now common in private practice.

You can book online or call us on 0121 704 2669. There are no waiting times, and our experts have great testimonials that you can review before booking. See Doctify
