Lipomas are small lumps under the skin that occur with an overgrowth of fat cells. This non-cancerous tumor can cause pain or other complications as well as cosmetic concerns. Lipoma removal surgery is for patients who are having discomfort due to their lipomas.
Risks of Lipoma Removal
Lipoma removal is an outpatient surgery done under local anesthetic. It carries few risks, but like all surgeries can cause pain, discomfort, bleeding, bruising, and post-surgical infection.
After lipoma removal, you will head home the same day. You may need to have someone drive you. Plan to spend a day recovering at home to give your incision site time to heal before returning to work.
Skin Cyst Removal
A cyst is a lump that forms under the skin, often from soft white keratin flakes. They can be painful, especially if they grow too large and put pressure on the surrounding tissue. Surgical removal is the only way to ensure the cyst does not return. People experiencing pain or cosmetic concerns due to cysts should consider skin cyst removal surgery.
Risks of Skin Cyst Removal
Skin cyst removal carries few risks. The primary risk is infection of the removal site. You will likely experience some pain and bruising after your surgery.
You will need to give the area time to heal properly before vigorous physical activity, but you can likely return to work the day after treatment.
Pilonidal Cyst Surgery
A pilonidal cyst is a type of cyst filled with hair and skin debris. This cyst forms at the bottom of the tailbone, usually because of infected hair follicles. Pilonidal cyst surgery is a last resort when other treatments, such as antibiotics, warm compresses, or sitz baths, do not resolve the cyst. Surgery is also necessary if the cyst and resulting infection cause complications. Your doctor will choose between incision and drainage of the cyst or a cystectomy, or full removal of the cyst.
Risks of Pilonidal Cyst Removal Surgery
The main risk is infection spreading from the cyst into the surrounding tissue. You will experience pain and discomfort at the surgical site. The surgery takes place under general anesthesia.
After surgery, arrange to have someone drive you home since you will be put under general anesthesia. You will need to plan two to four weeks to heal after the surgery. Sometimes the surgery site is left open, which means a longer healing time but less risk of developing a new cyst.
Hemorrhoids, swollen veins inside the rectum, are itchy and painful. If over-the-counter medications and lifestyle changes do not resolve your hemorrhoids, and they’re impacting your daily life and comfort, you should consider surgery. Surgery is also needed if the hemorrhoids prolapse or become infected. Surgical options for hemorrhoids include banding, sclerotherapy, coagulation therapy, and surgical removal of the hemorrhoid under anesthesia.
Risks of Hemorrhoid Surgery
Because hemorrhoids are in the rectum, the risk of infection is slightly higher after hemorrhoid surgery. Keeping the area clean is an important part of your recovery. Discomfort during bowel movements may occur during the healing time.
Recovery from hemorrhoid treatment depends on the procedure chosen. Rectal and anal pain are common after any of these procedures. You will need to use a stool softener and eat a high-fiber diet to avoid straining the treated area. You will also need to avoid heavy lifting or pulling activities for a period of time. Sitz baths can help reduce inflammation and discomfort as your body heals.
Foreign Body Removal
From time to time, patients may have a foreign body that becomes lodged under the skin. The only treatment for this is surgical removal, and prompt removal helps reduce the risk of trauma and infection to the injured area. If you have been in an accident or suffered trauma, but the area will not heal or has extreme pain, you may have a foreign body lodged inside and will need surgery. Infected wounds that will not heal or wounds that create physical impairment are also signs that you may need this surgery.
Risks of Foreign Body Removal Surgery
The risks of foreign body removal surgery are the same as other open-incision surgeries. Infection and pain are common. If the foreign body is small or delicate, there’s a slight risk that the medical team will have trouble finding the entire object during removal.
After foreign body removal surgery, you will need to rest the affected area to allow the incision to heal. The length of time you need will depend on the size of the incision and the size of the foreign body.
