After the removal of the mole, as well as after any surgical operation, the patient awaits a rehabilitation period. This implies special care for the wound surface. At the site of the nevus, a wound is formed, its dimensions depend on the diameter of the removed material. Gradually, it is tightened by a crust, which disappears after 1-2 weeks. On the wound site, a young pink skin appears and needs proper maintenance.
Features of skin care:
- Do not wet the wound for 4-5 days, but keep hygiene around the area undergoing surgery.
- Do not touch or tear off the crust that covers the wound, because underneath it the healing process takes place, breaking which can provoke a large scar.
- As soon as the crust falls off and pink skin appears under it, cover it from the sun.
About a month later, on the spot where the mole was, the skin assumes normal pigmentation. Within a month or two, painful sensations may still occur. The final healing depends on the individual characteristics of the body, but on average it takes 2-6 months.
Care for the scar
Healing of the skin after getting rid of the birthmark takes 2-4 weeks. During this period, it is necessary to treat the wound, and in the future care will be needed for the scar. After the operation, the patient may be prescribed wound-healing drugs with antibiotics and obligatory skin treatment with green or manganese. If the operation is successful and the medical recommendations are fully implemented, then undesirable consequences, that is, complications in the form of infection and bruising do not arise.
Within 5-10 days on the skin appears a crust, which gives way to a young pink skin. Such areas should be protected from the impact of negative factors, and especially from the sun. If you can not hide a wound, then before going out, use sunscreens with a high level of protection. If you leave the skin without protection, then it may appear pigmented spots.
Surgical removal of a birthmark very often leaves behind scars and scarring. In most cases, they resolve themselves, but if this does not happen, then the skin needs help. To do this, natural cocoa butter or silicone adhesive (suitable only for medical purposes). If this does not give the expected result, then it is worthwhile to contact a cosmetic surgeon. After treatment, carefully examine your birthmarks, especially if the removal was due to permanent trauma to the nevus. Take care not to make any changes.
