Soft Tissue Surgery Q & A

What is soft-tissue surgery?

Is soft-tissue surgery right for me?

Your surgeon lets you know if you’re a candidate for soft-tissue surgery after discussing your medical history with you, asking about your symptoms, and examining the soft-tissue masses. They might recommend you complete blood tests, biopsies, or other diagnostic procedures and let you know what to expect during your surgery.

What should I expect during soft-tissue surgery?

Before soft-tissue surgery, your provider numbs the treatment area so that you don’t feel any pain. You usually remain awake during the procedure. Your surgeon often makes a tiny incision to remove or repair soft tissues before closing the incision. They could also drain a soft-tissue mass.

What happens after soft-tissue surgery?

After soft-tissue surgery, it’s essential that you follow all post-surgery instructions. Take your medications as instructed by your surgeon to do so, and keep the surgical site clean. Apply topical medication to the area if your provider asks and attend all of your follow-up appointments to ensure that the tissues heal properly.

If the soft-tissue mass your surgeon removed is cancerous, you’ll also need radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or other cancer treatments. Those treatments will be set up by your oncologist.
