The area treated may be red and raised for a while. If you have had stitches we will advise you when to come back in to have them removed. Dissolvable stitches will usually disappear between 10 to 14 days after surgery. Pain is usually minimal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief.
Depending on the sort of lesion you have had removed and where it is on your body, your surgeon may advise you to avoid stretching the skin in the area where surgery has taken place while you still have stitches.
For 48 hours after surgery you will need to keep the wound dry, and then gently clean it daily after that. You may also need to keep the treated area of skin out of the sun.
Scarring should be minimal and should fade significantly after three months.
