SKIN LESIONS Surgery
Is Surgical Removal Right For Me?
Every surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk and it is important that you understand these risks and the possible complications associated with them. In addition, every procedure has limitations.
An individual’s choice to undergo a surgical procedure is based on the comparison of the risk to the potential benefit. Although the majority of patients do not experience complications, you should discuss them with your plastic surgeon to make sure you understand all possible consequences of surgical revision of scars.
What Can I Expect Right After My Skin Lesion Treatment?
- Sutures are normally removed within 4-14 days after surgery.
- Most patients return to non-strenuous work 7-10 days following surgery.
- Strenuous activities can be resumed approximately 3 weeks after surgery.
- Swelling, bruising, and soreness could take up to several weeks to dissipate.
What Can I Expect Over Time?
Over time, patients should avoid direct exposure of their incision to tanning beds or sunlight for one year after surgery. Apply SPF of 45 or higher to the area, or cover it when exposed to the sun.
