How is it done?

The procedure can be performed with or without anesthesia and lasts from 5-15 minutes. In case you receive anesthesia, you will be mildly sedated and you will be asked to perform the relevant preoperative check and to avoid any food and water for at least 8 hours before the operation. Painkillers and antibiotics are given during surgery or postoperatively. If a biopsy is taken it is sent for histological examination and the result is obtained within a week.
