YOUR RECOVERY

What to Expect

After your skin cancer has been removed and primary reconstruction is completed, a dressing or bandages will be applied. It is important to follow all wound care instructions such as cleansing and applying topical medications exactly as directed. Most patients can go about their normal activities and get the incision site wet. Patients should try to limit movement that may stress the wound and the sutures.

Following your doctor's instructions regarding medications and other post-operative measures is key to a quick recovery. It is important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing. We will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

You will be given specific instructions that include:

  • How to care for the surgical site
  • Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection
  • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in overall health
  • When to return to the office

Sutures are usually removed after 4-7 days. Pathology reports usually return in about one week. We will call you with the result. If you do not receive word from us after two weeks, please call the office so that we can make sure that your report has been received.

RESULTS

Healing will continue for many weeks or months as incision lines continue to improve. It may take a year or more following a given procedure for incision lines to refine and fade to some degree. In some cases, secondary procedures may be required to complete or refine your reconstruction.
