How long is my recovery post Skin Lesion surgery?

Most patients can return to normal activities the day following their procedure with some restrictions depending on the location of the lesion removed and the complexity of the surgery performed.

Following surgery, a dressing will be applied which will need to be kept clean and dry for 48 hours and a sample of your lesion will be sent to our pathologist for examination.

Your wound will be reviewed and stitches removed between 5 – 7 days for an excision on the face and 7 – 14 days for anywhere else on the body. At this time the pathologist report will be available and discussed with you.
