Excision of skin lesion under local anaesthetic by a maxillofacial surgeon

Skin lesions can be abnormal areas of skin tissue which can be sampled or removed under local anaesthetic by the maxillofacial surgeons in the day surgery unit. Before you leave the unit, the nurse will give you instructions about how to look after the wound to ensure good healing and will arrange an appointment for the removal of the sutures in the maxillofacial unit if needed.
