Anal Skin Tag Removal

Anal Skin Tag Removal

Anal skin tags or rectal skin tags are usually harmless growths that appear around the outside of the anus. These skin tags are often a legacy of haemorrhoids and can be embarrassing and annoying. They are sometimes mistaken for warts or piles (haemorrhoids).

Anal Skin tags may be due to a lesion, anal injury or the skin left behind after haemorrhoid treatment. With one in two Australians suffering from haemorrhoids, anal skin tags are a common problem.

Although anal skin tags are not a health risk, they can cause concerns with maintaining cleanliness after using the toilet or trap moisture which can result in skin irritation. They may also become irritated through rubbing of clothing, movement during exercise or everyday activities.

At Cosmetic Image Clinics Brisbane these anal skin tags can be cosmetically improved by removing them with a radiofrequency diathermy machine. It is performed under a simple local anaesthetic and takes approximately half an hour. This procedure minimizes bleeding by cauterizing the blood vessels as the skin tag is removed.

Please note this is not a treatment for haemorrhoids and if rectal bleeding has occurred, a clinical assessment by a General Practitioner is necessary to exclude a potentially more serious underlying condition.

Anal Skin Tag Case Study
I found cosmetic image clinic from a simple Google search. I was in desperate need to find a solution to my embarrassing and annoying anal skin tags which were a result of previous hemorrhoids. I was pleased to read that due to a breakthrough in technology moles and skin tags could now be shaved off delicately without the use of stitches. I then phoned and made an appointment to see Dr Ingrid Tall.

My appointment with Ingrid was very thorough and she took her time to explain the procedure in detail for me. All of my questions were answered and I left feeling relaxed and reassured.

My procedure followed a week after this visit and I found it to be surprisingly almost pain free. The procedure took no longer then 30minutes to remove both skin tags and the aftercare was quite simple. I had no side effects and I am incredibly happy with the results.
Most importantly the positive affect this procedure has given to me is priceless. I am happy and not embarrassed and most importantly do not suffer from the level of discomfort I suffered before.

Throughout My treatment and dealing with Dr Ingrid Tall I was always well informed and relaxed. I would not only highly recommend Dr Ingrid Tall I would also recommend this procedure to anyone who is suffering like I was.

Case Study Feedback

Dear Dr Ingrid Tall,

I have been meaning to write to you since I had my procedure done and have finally gotten around to it (one month later – sorry!).

Ingrid, I cannot thank you enough, you and the team have CHANGED MY LIFE! After dealing with the annoyance of an anal skin tag for almost a decade I actually can’t believe how you have transformed me.

No longer am I suffering from confidence issues and anxiety over the embarrassing issue I had… it’s funny because even though most people can’t see what you have, just knowing it is there is the worst part.

My partner says I know have the perfect bum hole and I have to agree!

My tag is completely gone, with very little imperfections to the skin visible and although for me personally it wasn’t an easy recovery it was worth every bit of discomfort for some weeks afterwards for a life changing result.

Whilst this issue has been extremely hard for me to talk to anyone else about I did know of others that suffer from the same thing and I sent them your website details and said they would be crazy not to take a trip to sunny Brisbane and be rid of their embarrassing tag for good.

Since having the procedure, now that I am skin tag free I am no longer afraid or nervous to talk about it because the shame and embarrassment is gone so I can now share my story with family and friends and have not stopped talking about you and the team and the amazing things you can do for people.

I will be eternally grateful to you and the team Ingrid and will ensure that I spread the word about my procedure as I know there are so many others out there who suffer from tags in embarrassing places and if they only knew how affordable and painless it is to be rid of them you would be booked out forever removing skin tags.

Eternally grateful forever!!!!!
