About Trigger Finger Surgery

Trigger finger release surgery may help you regain the ability to properly move your fingers and use your hand normally.

The procedure is done through a tiny cut in the palm or with the tip of a needle. The tissue sheath that surrounds the flexor tendon is divided (released) so that it can move freely. There should be no problems after this operation.

Trigger finger surgery is performed under local anaesthetic and usually spans between 0.5 to 1 hour. Typically, there are two main types of Trigger finger surgeries.

Open trigger release surgery: In this procedure an incision is made in one of the natural creases in your palm and local anaesthetic is injected into your hand, carefully cutting the tendon sheath to increase it. Wound closure and bandaging are standard procedures. This is the best way to do it.

Percutaneous trigger release surgery: In this procedure a needle is inserted into the base of the afflicted finger to cut through the ligament and reach the tendon, as opposed to injecting local anaesthetic directly into your hand. This procedure has no wound, but it is somewhat more dangerous than open trigger release surgery, and it may not be as successful in fixing the trouble.

During your first appointment at our clinic, Mr Ammar Allouni will clarify all your questions regarding the procedure. He will recommend surgery only if it is the best option for you. You will also be encouraged to clarify any doubts regarding the recovery period, post-surgical care and the expected outcomes.

He will take your detailed medical history and conduct relevant clinical assessments, which might be followed by a 3D projection of the expected result – if surgery is indicated in your case. Additionally, he will inform you of the potential risks and complications of the surgery. 

Some of your medications might require adjustments prior to the surgery or additional drugs may be prescribed. You will be asked to discontinue drugs like aspirin and herbal medications (if any) for a few days before and after the procedure. 

Mr Ammar Allouni will also inform you about certain precautions to be taken before and after surgery. He will instruct you to quit smoking and to avoid consuming alcohol and recreational drugs for a few days before and after the surgery.

  • Pre-Surgical Care: After your full body assessment and before your surgery day you get the list of precautionary measures – what all you should avoid and what all you should do for the best results.


  • Day of Surgery: Mr Allouni follows the BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) guidelines for all cosmetic procedures. On the day of surgery, your health status will be reassessed thoroughly and a qualified nurse will prepare you for the procedure. Mr Ammar Allouni and his team will ensure your well-being and comfort throughout the procedure.


  • Post-Surgical Care: Mr Allouni and his team will be at your side while you are recovering. Once you are ready to go home you will be receiving a proper guideline of dos and don’ts that you need to follow and instructions on how often you need to be in touch with your surgeon to share your recovery status.


  • Follow up Stage – FREE: You will be provided with a schedule about your follow up appointments. All your follow-ups with your surgeon will be completely free.


  • Personalised Care: Once you have gone through your surgery, you can always directly contact with Mr Ammar Allouni and his team in case you face any issue or concern in future.
You can move your finger right after surgery, although some discomfort in the palm of the hand is typical. The incision heals within a few weeks, but it might take 4 to 6 months for the swelling and stiffness in the hand and fingers to go away completely. You should take minimum 2 weeks off from work.
Trigger finger surgery is successful, and it is unusual for the condition to return in the treated finger or thumb. The potential risks following trigger finger surgery include finger stiffness, inability to straighten the injured finger and slight discomfort or inflammation at the incision site for a few weeks after surgery. Other less likely complications of this surgery include continued lock or click, which can indicate there is additional tissue to be released or that the finger is having another issue. In a small number of cases, the tendon can tilt away from the bone, restricting motion, infection and digital nerve damage which leads to numbness or tingling in a certain finger.
Mr Ammar Allouni has a high level of expertise and maintains exceptional standards in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery. You may feel more at ease with the kind of knowledge and the surgery mettle that he possesses. If you are looking for an excellent care from initial consultation to final discharge, Mr Ammar Allouni is your go to surgeon.
