Within The Lawrence clinic, we are proud to have The Yorkshire Skin Hospital, where we perform minor skin surgery and treatments.
Skin surgery is a common procedure that can address various skin conditions and concerns. Whether you’re considering skin surgery for medical or cosmetic reasons, it’s important to understand the different types of procedures, the process involved, and the expected recovery time. The Yorkshire Skin Hospital has a dedicated team led by Dr. Wright, a highly experienced surgeon who has performed over 60,000 surgical procedures and is a pioneer in the use of cosmetic lasers in skin surgery. Our commitment to professional standards is evident through our regulation by the Care Quality Commission, ensuring the highest quality of care for our patients.
Types of Skin Surgery:
Skin surgery encompasses a range of procedures, each tailored to address specific conditions; therefore, each one has a different recovery and healing time.
Some common types of skin surgery we see include:
We also see scar revision. Scar revision aims to improve the appearance of scars resulting from previous surgeries, injuries, or other skin conditions. Dr. Wright takes immense pride in leaving scars as cosmetically pleasing as possible, ensuring optimal results for our patients.
Carrying out Skin Surgery:
At The Yorkshire Skin Hospital, our team follows a meticulous approach to skin surgery. Dr. Wright’s expertise and the use of advanced techniques ensure precise and effective treatment. These techniques allow for the targeted removal of skin lesions, minimising damage to surrounding healthy tissue, and promoting faster healing.
The recovery time for skin surgery varies depending on the type and extent of the procedure. Generally, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort immediately after surgery.
The size and location of the wound will determine how long it takes for minor skin surgery to recover. In addition to possible swelling and bruising around the area, particularly if it is close to the eye, the wound may be sensitive for the first few days following treatment. Sharp pain may occasionally flare up while the wound heals. Typically, you’ll have a dressing on, and the size of it will depend on the kind of operation you had. For the first 48 hours following your procedure, you will be instructed to maintain this in place and to keep it dry. Dr. Wright and our team will provide detailed post-operative instructions to promote proper healing and minimise any potential complications.
Skin surgery is a valuable option for addressing various skin conditions. The Yorkshire Skin Hospital is devoted to offering safe and efficient skin surgery procedures thanks to the expertise of our team, under the direction of Dr. Wright, and our dedication to professional standards.
