Can I go straight to work after removing a mole?
I remove moles, cysts, lipomas etc under local anaesthetic and for most people it is OK to go back to work immediately. To give you an idea of how you will leave the surgery; this lady had a large mole removed under local anaesthetic. The wound is closed with tiny absorbable stitches and antibiotic cream is applied (2nd image). I usually apply some protective tape which stays in place for a few days. I will post her picture when she has healed in a few weeks’ time.
