Cyst Removal Surgery in Mesa, AZ

Serving Tempe, Grand Junction, Apache Junction, Gold Canyon, Casa Grande & Florence

Cysts are small sacs or pockets that are located just beneath the skin. They can be filled with pus, skin cells, bacteria, or a combination of these. They usually form when an ingrown hair or acne pore becomes irritated and infected, causing the skin to turn in on itself, creating a sac or pocket. While sometimes cysts can be lanced or popped, those methods often result in a recurrence of the cyst. For advanced cysts, surgical removal is often the best, longest-lasting method.

At Surgical Professionals, we offer simple, fast surgical procedures to remove cysts and similar growths. Our cyst removal process is relatively painless and, in most cases, can be completed in the office. With larger or more complicated cysts, we may need to take you to the operating room instead. We will meet with you in an initial office visit before scheduling you for either an office or an operating room procedure. With over 20 years of surgical experience in Mesa, AZ and the East Valley area, we are happy to help with all your surgical needs.

Call us today at 480-892-2456 or contact us online to schedule a surgical consultation today. We serve Mesa, Gilbert, Tempe, Chandler, Queen Creek, and the surrounding communities.

Who Can Benefit From Cyst Removal Surgery?

If you have noticed a hard nodule just underneath the skin that does not seem to go away, it is likely a cyst. Cysts can be classified in multiple categories, but some of the most common are pilonidal, breast, and sebaceous cysts. Pilonidal cysts occur in the depression near the tailbone, while breast cysts occur in the breast tissue. Cysts that occur elsewhere under the skin are typically called sebaceous cysts. Most are harmless, but they can occasionally contain malignant or cancerous cells.

We will send your cyst to the pathologists for analysis. Surgically removing cysts can be a good way to clear up the skin and prevent future infections. If you have an active infection, we usually will treat this with a simple drainage procedure and allow it to clear up with the cyst removal surgery to be performed after the infection and inflammation clear.

What to Expect During a Cyst Removal

Removing a cyst is a quick and relatively painless process as we use local anesthetic. At Surgical Professionals, our team will:

  • Identify the cyst that needs to be removed
  • Apply localized anesthesia to numb the affected area. This injection is usually the only somewhat painful part of the procedure and the pain disappears in seconds.
  • Carefully surgically remove the sac and any affected skin cells
  • Stitch or bandage the affected area to promote healing. If there are signs of infection, we may leave the skin open to allow it to drain and heal from the inside out.

The process typically takes less than an hour, and with our skilled surgeons, the scars will be kept to a minimum.

Risks of Cyst Removal Procedures

Any surgical procedure carries risks, and with a cyst removal, the most common risks can include the possibility of:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Inflammation
  • Scars
  • Reaction to the local anesthetic

In most cases, the risks are negligible and easily managed. To learn more about the cyst removal process, call 480-892-2456 or contact us online!

Recovery From a Cyst Removal

Patients can often leave just after the procedure is complete, and they can typically return to work the next day. The exception may be pilonidal cyst removals, which may require a slightly longer recovery period before returning to work. Healing will take several weeks, but with our skilled team, scarring will be minimal.

Dr Gray did an excellent job twice when my father had hernias. One was an emergency situation, and the other was not. Both times, Dr Gray showed expertise in diagnosing the problem, performing the surgery, setting our expectations and follow through after the procedure. I definitely would recommend him for your surgical procedures.

Dr. Ju saved my life. I had surgery back in 2010 (almost 10 years ago). He is an amazing surgeon with a wonderful concern for his patients. His staff were also very professional and caring during a very difficult time in my life. Thank you, Doctor Ju.

Wendy Foody /

My entire experience with Doctor Gray was of the utmost professionalism courtesy kindness by all of his staff included. Doctor Gray was dynamic in his experience and his knowledge. In my experience I thought I was taken care very well which gave me a great level of confidence in my experience through this surgery.

Brett Barker /

This Doctor saved my life and I have nothing but admiration for him. Dr. Brian Ju was my surgeon for the removal of my gall bladder 2 weeks ago. He is the most phenomenal and adept surgeon I’ve ever experienced. He even coordinated with the anesthesiologists to ensure that the anesthesia had anti-nausea elements because of my history with nausea!

Sherri Smith /

I am not from the valley but was here to visit my son and his family. Dr. Gray and his staff were amazing in getting me in and actually scheduling my surgery the day after I had my first visit. The office staff – especially Alex is absolutely the BEST. Everyone is extremely efficient and at the same time – very caring. I can not thank Dr. Gray and his staff more! Very grateful and I wish I could package what you have going on and take it home with me! THANK YOU!!!!

Kathi in Pueblo, Colorado /

I was fortunate have Dr. Ju for two surgeries. He was an excellent surgeon for one, and his bed side manor was outstanding. I felt very confident with Dr. Ju and his staff. If I were to have any procedures or surgeries done in the future, I would schedule them with Dr. Ju and the excellent staff at Surgical Professionals Inc. Thank you again to a wonderful professional staff.
