Advice for patients before having minor skin surgery
A minor skin procedure has been arranged for you. This leaflet will give you some information about what to expect before the procedure.
Please let the staff know if you are pregnant or if you have a medical condition that you think might stop you from having the procedure.
You should also let the staff know if you are taking any blood thinning medication such as warfarin, clopidogrel, aspirin, rivaroxaban or apixaban or have had any allergic reactions to local anaesthetics.
You can eat and drink as normal before and after your surgery.
