How is an outpatient surgical examination performed?
In each case, the detection of the disease begins with a physical examination and then continues with the mapping of the patient's other conditions.
The surgeon decides on the need for the intervention in the knowledge of the previous history.
The outpatient procedure is performed under local anesthesia in all cases after surface disinfection.
The injection into a given area of skin will initially give a tight, tingling sensation and will cause a complete pain relief on the surface to be treated.
The so-called deep sensations still persist, such as pulling and pressure.
The patient is awake throughout the procedure, so if you feel unwell or if you have any problem, inform your doctor. As an uncommon side effect after surgery, dizziness and palpitations may affect susceptible patients. These symptoms are usually temporary and last only a few minutes.
In general, outpatient surgeons have a duration of 30 minutes. (Excision of 1 mole, under local anesthesia).
After outpatient surgery, a sterile bandage is placed on the treated surface that cannot be touched by water. It is recommended to change the bandage every two days. After day 2, the wound can be gently washed under stream of water without chemicals.
The patient should return for follow-up examination within 7-14 days after surgery.
