Wondering what minor surgeries are? Well, they are surgical procedures that are minimally invasive, involving only the skin or some specific connective tissues.
Moreover, while being certainly capable of eliminating some annoying health problems, they are performed under local anaesthesia and usually have minimal complications.
Our experienced doctors know well how to perform an extensive range of minor surgeries properly, so be sure to meet them in the comfort of our private clinic.
Understanding the Minor Surgeries
Most of the minor surgeries are performed relatively quickly while a few more complicated procedures might take a maximum of 1 hour.
The surgery takes place with a small incision. There is no extensive damage to the tissue, which also keeps the chances of infection low. Minor surgeries do not involve very sophisticated devices. The recovery is quick with minor surgeries.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MINOR Surgical procedures
You may have other questions about the procedure that may not have been answered yet. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding minor surgeries.
Whenever you think you are having some troublesome concerns, make sure to book an appointment.
There is a very small risk that the lesion may return after treatment. This can occur with any lesion but is most common with epidermal or sebaceous cysts, warts, skin tags and lipomas. This will be discussed during your consultation.
Yes, generally this time is enough for minor surgery. If there are any changes, you will be informed accordingly.
No, one of the biggest advantages of minor surgery is that it does not require hospitalisation.
Normally your doctor will give you an appointment to follow up and guide you on when to consult again. If you notice anything unusual, make sure to make an appointment and follow up as soon as possible.
Generally, the larger a lesion is, the harder it is to remove. There may be a scar once the wound has healed; the degree of scarring depends on your age, where the lesion is and what surgery technique was used. All lesions on the face are treated very carefully to keep scarring to a minimum. Besides, there are ways to reduce scarring.
Mostly one session is enough, but if there are any changes or requirements for more sessions, you will be informed beforehand.
Generally, minor procedures do not require medications. If needed, painkillers are enough.
Set-Up Of A Minor Surgical Procedure
The majority of the minor surgical procedures do not involve difficult devices. Minor surgeries are performed by everyday used instruments, but in the properly maintained environment.
It is important to have a well ventilated surgical room. The room has to be clean but not necessarily sterile isolation. After each session, it has to be re-cleaned properly.
An easily accessible table from all sides is an important surgical requirement. Certainly, there are a doctor’s stool, side table and lamp next to it.
Showcase and containers
For surgical instruments, there should be a proper showcase. For contaminated materials, there should be well-marked containers.
Proper resuscitation equipment should be present that include saline, drugs for resuscitation, a defibrillator, material for vascular access and intubation.
Preparation for the Minor surgery
Your surgeon may ask you to consider the following details prior to your surgery.
STOP TAKING CERTAIN MEDICATIONS
Let us know of any medications or supplements you're taking, including any blood-thinning medications. Some supplements may affect your chances of bleeding after surgery, so make sure your surgeon knows about those, too. Continue taking any prescription medications as instructed unless your surgeon tells you otherwise.
get ready for anaesthesia
In a minor surgery, anaesthesia is an essential part of choice depending on the procedure. Local anaesthesia is given via injection to the site or allowed to absorb into the skin. Sometimes for a minor surgical procedure, a large area has to be numbed - for such exemptions, a different kind of anaesthesia may be used.
Wear easy and comfortable clothing
Wear comfortable, casual clothes. Dress in layers, so you can easily adapt to the temperature of the room if the room is warm or cold.
Expect some waiting time
Bring something to help pass the time during your visit. Plan properly by bringing a book, magazine, or other activity to help you pass the time.
Risk Factors of a Minor Surgery
Just like any surgery, minor surgical procedures can have risks too. As a matter of fact, it mostly depends on the particular surgery that you are going to have.
Obesity can possess a risk factor
Age has its role to play in each surgery
Smoking increases the risk of a surgery
Anaesthesia used can also be a risk factor
Complications of a Minor Surgery
Nausea and vomiting are the most common complications resulting from minor surgery
Pain is a well-known complaint after any surgical procedure, although easily overcome
Side effects from anaesthesia, depending on the type of anaesthesia used
Bleeding, although rare, is one major complication of a minor surgical procedure
Blood clots are also seen as a complication of minor surgery
Sepsis can be a more serious and detrimental complication, although less common
Fatigue after surgery is a commonly occurring complication, although nothing too worrisome
Scarring is a common complaint, yet it is normal if surgery is performed on a deeper level
Fever can point to a worrisome outcome, so it is smart to consult with a doctor as early as possible
Infection might be possible after the surgery. Early recognition of infection can prevent any long-term complications or potential harm.
Wound dehiscence is the opening up of a wound during the healing process. This is a minor issue and the wound may take up extra days to heal.

Very friendly staff with a wide range and treatments, and the knowledge of how to apply those treatments. Very relaxed atmosphere, where you can discuss (without pressure) what you would like to enhance, about the way you look. They've altered my life and how I feel about myself in a very short time. I had no idea that I could alter (without surgery) my physical shape. This seemed to happen almost magically while we were chatting through the totally painless procedure. I'm very happy that I found you guys at Medispa, many thanks

I have been visiting EF Medispa, Edgbaston for a few months now and I can honestly say it has so far been a very positive experience. The team are so friendly and welcoming, you are always greeted with big warm smiles. I initially had my consultation with Sarah, who was lovely and very knowledgeable. She explained the whole procedure to me before treatments commenced. I also cannot speak highly enough of Kelly who has been carrying out my treatments. She always makes me feel at ease, from the very start she has walked me through the process of the whole procedure, answers all my questions and tells me what the benefits are. I would highly recommend coming to EF Medispa, Edgbaston, it is a spotless and pristine clinic and not only that, you will be well looked after by all the professional, friendly and welcoming staff from the moment you walk through the door.

I have been going to Ef Medispa for a couple of months now for ongoing treatments and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only can I see mass amount of improvements, I’ve created such a friendship with the staff. I walked in feeling under confident and insecure, however, Beth and Sarah have both made my self esteem higher than ever. Can’t thank them enough, going here is more like a catchup with friends!
