What are the indications for surgery?
If your cyst becomes very painful or inflamed then, surgical removal/ drainage of a cyst is necessary. Patients have to go through a physical examination by the surgeon to discuss the symptoms and decide on whether surgery is necessary.
What is the procedure for cyst removal surgery?
Surgery is performed at Apollo Kondapur under general anaesthesia or sedation, depending on the size and location of the cyst. The surgeon then makes an incision on the skin above or near the cyst to drain or remove it. Once the cyst is out, it is sutured closed and covered with sterile strips and a gauze dressing or surgical glue. If one has multiple cysts, you can get it all removed in one visit.
Preparation- the surgeon marks the area around the bump to prepare for the cyst removal.
Numbing- while giving the local anaesthesia or sedation, it might sting slightly but after that, you will not feel the procedure.
Removal- the surgeon will then remove the pockets of the skin cells.
Suture- the surgeon will stitch the wound inside out of the skin, which should last for about two months maximum.
Healing- the skin then heals from the inside out.
Scars- if the surgeon repairs your skin correctly, you should be left with a small, smooth scar only.
How long does it take for recovery?
Duration of recovery varies from patient to patient. Many people return to their desk-type job the next day. However, in most cases, there are no lifting restrictions. It is not feasible to do jobs requiring heavy weight lifting for a week or so depending upon the size and location of the cyst.
