The author describes an incisional technique for removing a sebaceous cyst. This technique considerably reduces the size of the cyst, and if excision of the balance of the cyst is later pursued, the resulting scar is not as conspicuous as the scarring that occurs from conventional excisional surgery.

Key words: Sebaceous cyst—Incisional technique—Second operation
