If you have had a local anaesthetic procedure, it is important to know what to expect, how to manage your wound and what skincare routine to follow.
Mr Smith can now provide an information leaflet to help you to understand the stages of scar healing after local anaesthetic procedures. This will help you to know what to expect, but also know when to seek medical advice.
When you attend your first consultation with Mr Smith before your surgery, he can answer any questions you have. He will also support you with any decisions about your treatment.
This A4 patient information sheet can be printed at home and includes information about:
- What to expect after surgery
- How to monitor your scar and track its progression
- The stages of scar recovery
- Problem scars – and treatment options
- Skincare advice
If you would like to be sent a copy of the leaflet, please email MylesSmith.Secretary@hcahealthcare.co.uk.
