Do minor surgical procedures require anesthesia?

Some procedures, such as removal of small skin growths or wound dressing, don’t cause discomfort and don’t require any anesthesia. Other types of minor surgery may require a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic. 

If you have concerns about pain or discomfort during your in-office treatment, speak to your caring Access Wellness Healthcare provider about options to keep you comfortable during your procedure.

How long will my recovery be after my procedure?

How much time, if any, it takes for you to recover from a minor surgical procedure depends on your condition, the type of procedure, and other individual factors. Some minor procedures, such as a skin biopsy or wart removal, don’t require any downtime. 

Other procedures may have some mild side effects, such as swelling or redness, or may require you to rest or avoid certain activities for a short time after your treatment. 

Your Access Wellness Healthcare expert will give you detailed instructions for after-care following your in-office procedure.

How do I prepare for my procedure?

Most minor surgical procedures at Access Wellness Healthcare don’t require special preparation. 

You should make sure your provider is aware of your medical history, any allergies to medicines, and any prescription or over-the-counter medications you’re currently taking before your procedure begins. 

If your procedure requires you to fast or to prepare in any way, your provider will make sure you have specific instructions ahead of time.
