How Much Will It Cost Me to Have my Facial Cyst Removed?
A Facial Plastic Surgeon or aesthetically-oriented Dermatologist should be able to do a good job removing this cyst for you. The cost will vary depending upon the surgeon's background, your city and the size at the time of removal. You can expect to pay somewhere between $250 - 1000 depending upon these factors. I hope this information is helpful.

It definitely is possible to have the cyst removed on your face. I would recommend seeing a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon to discuss the procedure, but it likely could be done in the surgeon's office with just local anesthesia. The cost is going to vary, so you might want to get a couple of estimates. As a ballpark figure, the cost should be in the hundreds and not thousands.
