If you have been diagnosed with skin cancer, it will need to be removed. Often, this will leave a wound that must be closed with skin reconstruction surgery. Following this, a skin reconstruction recovery period will be needed.
Generally, only around one to two days of skin reconstruction recovery will be needed before the patient will be able to return to their work. Those with more strenuous jobs may need to take more time before returning.
This is only a general estimate, as skin reconstruction recovery time will vary. It is partially determined by the details of the procedure, including the amount of reconstruction necessary to restore the region.
If you would like to find out more about your projected skin reconstruction recovery time, Dr. Kendall Peters, a skilled board-certified plastic surgeon, will be happy to answer your questions and provide instructions. Contact our office to schedule a skin reconstruction consultation.
