Some dermatological conditions require surgical management, including the removal of skin cancers and other lesions. These procedures can be performed in our rooms under local anaesthetic and are usually scheduled at a date soon after your initial consultation. Please contact us in advance if you are travelling from a distance and may require skin surgery at the time of initial consultation. For urgent surgical cases and referrals, we will do our best to schedule the procedure as soon as possible.
When choosing a date for surgery you should consider that postoperative healing times may interfere with work commitments or physical activities. Sutures are removed 1 to 2 weeks following surgery.
It is advisable not to schedule surgery if you are planning to be away interstate or overseas in the 1 or 2 weeks after the scheduled date. This would make it difficult for us to communicate pathology results, check that your wound is healing and remove the sutures.
