Perianal Skin Tag Removal

Perianal skin tag removal is a sensitive procedure that removes protruding skin tags from the anus. These little tumours are harmless, although they are inconvenient. Swollen polyp-like growths with a thicker outer layer of skin and a fibrovascular core, which implies they have their own blood supply, are known as skin tags. They're recognisable because a stalk-like protrusion grows forth from the skin. Unpleasant, to say the least. They can appear anywhere on the body, but are most frequent in places like the neck, armpit, and groyne, affecting around a quarter of the population. They are frequently the consequence of friction or irritation to the skin, which causes a skin tag, also known as an acrochordon, to develop.

About Perianal Skin Tag Removal

The majority of patients are apprehensive about discussing anything that happens in their underwear. However, from a medical standpoint, the anus is just another vital bodily component. When it comes to preserving your health, safety, and comfort, it needs the same respect as the rest of your anatomy. Crohn’s Disease, Diabetes Mellitus, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, hormonal fluctuations, repeated haemorrhoids, and anal fissures are all common causes of anal skin tags. Patients may misdiagnose anal skin tags, so it’s critical to get medical help to establish a correct diagnosis and rule out the potential of other, more serious health problems.

How do Perianal Skin Tags form? 

The anus has specialised loose skin that can contract and stretch to suit body activities, and it serves a vital purpose. As a result, the skin is particularly vulnerable to harm. 

Blood pooling in a vein can occur if blood flow to this location is disrupted. Another typical illness that causes itching and discomfort is a thrombosed haemorrhoid, which occurs when a vein becomes swollen. Anal fissures are rips in the anus’s delicate lining. They, like haemorrhoids, can lead to anal skin tags after they’ve healed. A little deflated portion of skin is left hanging when the swelling of these injuries subsides. It is vulnerable to additional exploitation due to its terrible placement. 

Anal skin tags are a result of the body’s normal healing process and develop as a reaction to trauma. Repetitive traumas and irritations, on the other hand, cause the cellular regenerating process to go haywire, resulting in this modest but aberrant growth. 

Cellular growth factors drive fibroblasts to multiply and make collagen, or connective tissue, when they arrive on the scene to begin mending these injuries. Keratinocytes are also triggered into action and begin multiplying, resulting in skin thickening owing to excessive keratin synthesis and the eventual creation of a skin tag. 

The tag usually starts off tiny, but as the regeneration process continues, it gradually grows in size due to recurrent stress from excessive washing, irritants in soap and hygiene products, or reoccurring anal injuries. 


Benefits of Perianal Skin Tag Removal:

Although anal skin tags may not cause pain or bleed, patients may experience irritation and extra skin in such a private and delicate place. 

The excision of anal skin tags enhances one’s overall quality of life by addressing: 

  • Comfort 
  • Irritability of bowel motions 
  • Personal cleanliness is really important. 
  • Sexual well-being 
  • Existing skin tags are prevented from growing bigger and more irritating. 


Perianal Skin Tags Procedure:

Our surgeons will utilise the removal approach that provides the most efficient and painless outcomes based on the amount of your anal skin tags. You’ll be given local anaesthetic to ensure that you don’t feel anything during the procedure. We may then remove your skin tags with a scalpel. This is a simple procedure that takes only a few minutes to complete. Depending on the size of the tags, you may also be given dissolvable sutures. 

We may need to remove many skin tags one at a time to allow this sensitive region to recover if you have multiple skin tags. This also lowers the chance of infection from coming into contact with your internal organs.  

You’ll have the peace of mind you deserve, and you’ll be able to go home following your surgery. Things will be back to normal again before you realise it. 

Perianal Skin Tags Recovery:

The eradication of anal skin tags is quick. You’ll need to relax and recuperate for the remainder of the day after this operation. As sitting may be difficult while you heal, you should be able to return to work the next day and resume your normal routine within a week. Our surgeons will prescribe antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection, as well as creams to relieve pain and speed up the healing process. 

Perianal Skin Tags Results:

Anal skin tag removal removes the bothersome existing growths, but it’s also critical to address the reasons that caused them to form in the first place. Skin tags can be avoided in the future by eating a high-fiber diet and improving toilet habits. Baby your bottom! Despite the fact that we like our patients, this is one surgery that no one wants to repeat! To book a private consultation, contact us now.

What are Anal Skin Tags?2022-03-22T12:27:32+00:00

Skin tags that protrude from the anus are known as anal skin tags. Despite the fact that they are technically tumours, they are benign and do not cause pain or bleeding. They are, however, readily irritated due to their position, which might lead them to grow in size.

What causes Anal Skin Tags?2022-03-22T12:27:50+00:00

Crohn’s disease, diabetes, and irritable bowel syndrome all include anal skin tags as a symptom. Recurrent haemorrhoids and anal fissures can also cause them. As the body strives to heal from damages to this sensitive region, it may overcompensate by producing an excess of connective tissue and rigid skin, resulting in these bothersome lumps.

What is the recovery process for Anal Skin Tag Removal?2023-08-29T12:53:42+01:00

Anal skin tag removal procedures are quick and easy, and as a result, recovery time is short. Although sitting may be a bit difficult until you’ve fully recovered, you should try to relax right after and stay away from any strenuous activity for the remainder of the day. The day after the treatment, you should be able to go back to work, and a week later, you should be able to resume your regular schedule.
