Patients are often worried about stories of pain and long recovery after anal skin tag removal. We often find that the google stories of anal skin removal are done when accompanying haemorrhoid surgery which is just not necessary in most cases where it is purely just excess skin or a tag that is bothersome.

Due to the delicate precision in the way the skin tags are removed, most patients just take simple paracetamol or ibuprofen for a few days and recover within 1-2 weeks.
