If you suffer from anal skin tags (not to be mistaken with hemorrhoids), you may have started looking at surgical skin tag removal to eliminate the small bumps. But what is the recovery process like?
While choosing to get surgery may seem scary, our doctors and medical staff at Amy Brenner, MD & Associates strive to keep our patients at ease every step of the way. Believe it or not, you won’t have to worry about spending months away from doing what you love or becoming active again.
For more details on what to expect with anal skin tag removal recovery, keep reading and we’ll explain what you should know.
You may have to change your diet for a few days
Depending on what your doctor recommends you may either have to go on an all-liquid diet or take laxatives. This is all to ensure that bowel movements won’t irritate the area and affect the healing process. Plus, a liquid diet or laxatives can reduce constipation so you won’t strain to use the restroom or have too much added pressure near the anus.
You will probably experience some pain
As with any surgery, the recovery process can be a little painful or cause discomfort. However, your doctor will prescribe medications to control pain and prevent infections if necessary. You definitely should not experience anything astronomical or unbearable.
At Amy Brenner, MD & Associates we use the Ellman Surgitron instead of a scalpel. Since the Ellman Surgitron involves superior precision and less thermal injury, it helps promote faster recovery and minimize pain. Most of our patients find that this process involves a minimal amount of pain/discomfort and is well worth it in the long term!
You can return to daily activities sooner than later
The great part about anal skin tag removal recovery is that it doesn’t last long. For the following week after your surgery, you’ll want to avoid heavy lifting and exercise, but you should be able to return to your regular activities after only two weeks!
