Preparing for surgery
Undergoing a cosmetic gynecology procedure is a major decision to take, with various factors involved in the success of your cosmetic treatment. One of the major factors impacting the final result of your treatment is how well you prepare for it. Right from personalizing your treatment plan to fit your cosmetic desires, to allowing your body to heal smoothly, preparing for the surgery is essential to successful treatment. Like any other major surgery you undergo, taking a few measures to prepare yourself mentally and physically can turn around the outcome of your treatment, allowing you to embrace your new body without any regrets. We have listed vital information for you to read and follow, in order to prepare for your surgery in the best possible manner.
Pre-surgical assessment and counseling
Apart from your initial consultation, we also ensure that each patient undergoes an evaluation and counseling session before their procedure, to ensure they are in the right frame of mind and optimal health to go through with the treatment. Our experts conduct preliminary tests to determine if your vital levels and health is in place, for a smooth surgery and recovery. Moreover, we also organize a counseling session to prepare you for the outcome of your surgery and keep you relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.
We strongly disallow patients from driving back home by themselves after the surgery. It is recommended that you bring a responsible adult who stays with you during the procedure and takes you back in private transport, to ensure that you are kept comfortable. Patients are also advised to arrange for somebody to tend to them for a minimum of 24 hours after the procedure.
You will be placed under general anesthesia during the surgery, for which a minimum of 6-8 hours of fasting is required. Due to the general, any food or liquid can get pushed to the back of the throat, resulting in complications when you are sedated. Though you are allowed to take prescription medication approved by the doctor, the water consumed with the medication should be minimal. This is a requirement for any surgery, which can result in your procedure being postponed or canceled if not followed. In case of any queries about fasting before the surgery, you can get in touch with our experts.
