An ingrown nail occurs when the nail grows into the skin, causing pain, swelling, and redness. This can happen to any nail but most commonly affects the toenails.
There are several causes of ingrown nails, including improper nail trimming, tight shoes, injury to the nail, and genetic predisposition.
Treatment options for ingrown nails include soaking the affected area in warm water, wearing loose-fitting shoes, and gently lifting the edge of the nail out of the skin.
In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to remove a portion of the nail or the entire nail.
In severe cases of ingrown nails, surgical methods may be necessary to remove the affected portion of the nail. The surgical options include partial nail avulsion, total nail avulsion, and wedge resection. These procedures are typically performed by a podiatrist or a dermatologist under local anesthesia.
Partial nail avulsion involves removing the affected portion of the nail, while total nail avulsion involves removing the entire nail. A wedge resection involves removing a V-shaped section of the nail and the underlying tissue.
After the procedure, the area is typically covered with a dressing, and patients are advised to keep the area clean and dry. Pain medication may be prescribed to manage any discomfort.
Yes, ingrown nail surgical procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia, which means you will be awake but numb in the area around the affected nail.
The procedure itself is not painful, but you may experience some discomfort or pain during the healing process.
The duration of the procedure varies depending on the severity of the case, but it typically takes 15 to 30 minutes.
It is advisable to take a few days off work after the procedure to allow the area to heal and avoid any potential complications.
No, a cast or brace is not typically necessary after ingrown nail surgery, but you may need to wear a dressing over the affected area for a few days.
It is not advisable to drive immediately after the procedure, so you should arrange for someone to drive you home.
Yes, the nail will grow back after the procedure, but it may take several months for the new nail to fully grow in.
The healing time varies depending on the severity of the case, but it typically takes 1 to 2 weeks for the area to heal completely.
You will need to follow the post-operative instructions provided by your healthcare provider, which may include keeping the area clean and dry and avoiding strenuous activity for a few days.
