Although wound infection is rare, you should still be aware of any changes to your wound site and its surrounding areas. Some tenderness, redness and swelling is normal after skin surgery. If you experience ongoing redness, pain, swelling, or oozing or you develop a fever we urge you to contact the clinic immediately.

We will arrange an appointment post-surgery with your consultant to remove your wound dressing. We advise you to not change or disturb the dressing until advised by a clinician.
