Nail surgery is performed to permanently resolve nail deformity or repetitive infection from ingrowing toe nails.
There are two types of nail surgery:
Total Nail Avulsion
The entire nail is permanently removed, normally performed on deformed nails (onychogryphosis) or severely involuted nails.
Partial Nail Avulsion
The offending side or sides are removed, normally performed on ingrowing nails (onychocryptosis) or involuted nails. This technique can provide excellent cosmetic results.
Nail surgery is performed under local analgesia, the same type of injection as given by Dentists.
Following an initial consultation appointment a surgical appointment is made, this normally is for 1.5 hours, although the procedure rarely lasts more than 20 to 30 minutes, most of the time being taken for pre and post op preparation.
Total nail avulsions cost £260.00.
Should a second nail require removal at the same time this would cost an additional £20.00
Partial nail avulsions cost £260.00.
Further sides can be removed up to a maximum of four on two toes at £20.00 each at the same time.
The above fees include all follow-up redressings, normally on a weekly basis for 4 to 8 weeks.
