Risks with Surgical Excision for Skin Tag Removal

Skin Tag Removal in London & UK »

There are very few risks involved with surgical excision for a skin tag, and the procedure is considered a very safe and reliable method for their removal.  For larger skin tags the risks are greater, due to the nature of the process.  Skin tag removal through excision can:

  • Lead to scarring of the area
  • Cause some mild pain and discomfort
  • Lead to irritation of the skin especially in areas where the skin often rubs together
  • Cause haematoma to occur under your skins’ surface

However, these are very rare side effects, and are unlikely to occur if you have a good practitioner and if your skin tag is deemed suitable for the excision process.
