Mole removal in Aylesbury – what is the recovery time?

Mole RemovalThis is a very difficult question to answer as everybody is different.  Our professional Surgeon can offer you an estimate on recovery times but much of this will depend on you.  You will need to take the time to heal but you can rest assured that the process we use at Karma House is designed to promote healing.  Following your mole removal procedure our team will offer advice on recovery and aftercare and if you follow our tips your recovery should go very smoothly.  

One of the questions that we often get about mole removal is the stitching.  Obviously you will be concerned about scarring and our team do everything they can to reduce the possibility of scarring.  In many procedures any stitching can be done internally and there are different ways of removing these when the time comes.

If you have an area where the skin is thinner, such as the skin on the face, the stitches are taken out after five days, but on thicker areas of skin such as the palms of the hands, the stitches might be left in for up to two weeks.  During the healing process our team is on hand to make sure that your recovery is progressing well and we are here if you have any questions or concerns.   

An important part of your recovery is knowing what you can and cannot do following the procedure.  Obviously you will want to get back to daily life as quickly as possible and we will do everything we can to support you in this.  However, you will need to be careful when exercising and it is always a good idea to limit your alcohol intake.   

Mole removal in Aylesbury – what are the after effects?

Our procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic but you may experience discomfort when this wears off.  Over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol are ideal to control this pain, but we will always advise you to avoid products such as ibuprofen as it is a non-steroidal drug which can raise the risk of bleeding.  If you find that paracetamol is not enough contact us at the clinic or speak to your GP for further advice.

Our professional team has been carefully selected to give you the support and treatment that you are looking for.  We are specially trained to support you at a worrying time like this and can answer any questions that you may have.  The process is actually much less worrying than it sounds and with our expertise and after-care you will always be in good hands.

Your recovery from this procedure is our priority and at every stage we will check that you are progressing as you should.  This type of procedure can knock your confidence and we are in a good position to help you to rebuild it. Karma House has a range of treatments which can help to boost your self-esteem and get you back to being the person you want to be.
