BLEEDING

While you are performing skin surgery you may face the bleeding issue even during surgery or sometimes it also occur right after surgery or during healing process as well just prepare your mind that you must have this issue sooner or later but don’t worry at all its not harmful at all . One could face some slight pain or sever pain (only in few cases or extreme condition) otherwise the pain is bearable and it would be gone with the help of medicine advised by the doctor. If the bleeding is not stopping or causing you sever pain than you must consult with your doctor as soon as possible as waiting is not the ideal thing to do in such case.

DAMAGE TO STRUCTURES

The one major skin problem after surgery which one might face is the damage to the layer of the skin which includes the outer layer, structural layer and fat layer. The problems arise only if the structures are also damaged, like if the skin lesion which is removed has increased into underlying structures or in some cases it is observed that the skin lesion is present at a site where many important structures like salivary glands and nerves are very close to the surface of the skin.

REACTION TO THE MEDICINES

The major part of the surgery is the usage of local anesthetic and analgesics during or before the start of the surgery which is used to counter the pain which one can feel during the procedure of the skin surgery.
Local anesthetic usually are given by injection with the adrenaline, which helps to slow down the bleeding from the skin lesion. If the huge amount of adrenaline is given than one could face the following symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Pain in body
  • Rise in blood pressure
  • Palpitations

All the above mentioned symptoms are being observed to be felt by the patient who is undergoing the skin surgery but all these are for very short period of time and can be said the manageable things in medical terms.
If the analgesics is given than the patient could feel some common kind of side effects which indulges:

  • Drowsiness
  • Headache
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • High blood pressure
  • Itching

All of these are common side effects of analgesics but in some rare case it is observer that patient could also face these skin problems after surgery

  • Depression
  • Confusion
  • Hallucination
  • Anxiety
  • Urine problem
  • Variation in blood pressure

But the best thing is that due to the development of the science and medicines all these above mentioned side effects can be easily handled by using the opioids in high dosage for long span of time but remember to adjust the dosage according to the advice of the doctor.

PERSISTENT SWELLING WITH PAIN

The most common skin problem after surgery is the persistent swelling with some little pain but the pain could get strong as the time passes and the right medicines are not taken. The thing is that the skin surgery could easily damage the lymphatic channels which surely take some good time like 6-8 weeks to heal and due to this issue persistent swelling is being observed r in different patient mostly around the areas like lower eyelid and lower thighs. The other major skin problem after surgery is that the persistent swelling can be the cause of delaying the healing process due to which the surgery could leave a scar but it is mostly observed in rare case as it totally depend on the magnitude of the surgery. persistent swelling can also leads the skin to different kind of infection which eventually also somehow delay the process of healing and once the healing process is delayed you have to wait long enough for the remodeling and strengthening of the wound.
