Below 15 minutes: This is done by numbing the lid, turning it inside out on a special clamp, and opening and cleaning out the collected contents of the cyst. Except for the injection to numb the lid, the whole process is painless and healing is rapid. It takes less than 15 minutes as an office procedure in all cases except the occasional child that may require general anesthesia.
