1Is plastic surgery safe?
Any surgery operation presents a risk, whatever the specialty in which it is performed. All precautions must be taken in order to minimize risks and maximise the results.
2What is a general anaesthesia?
A general anesthesia is a reversible medical procedure using anaesthetic drugs given by intravenous or to be inhaled. With this procedure, the patient will feel a temporary loss of consciousness and pain.
3What is a local anaesthetic?
Local anaesthesia -or locoregional anaesthesia- temporarily prevents the feeling of pain in a circumscribed area, meanwhile the patient is still awake and conscious.
4 What rules should be followed before a cosmetic surgery operation?
A consultation with the anaesthetist must be conducted imperatively at the clinic at the latest 48 hours before the surgery is conducted. The anaesthetist will conduct an examination of the patient and will eventually ask for complementary tests. It is preferably to quit smoking a month before the surgery operation, and to not to take aspirin medicine or arnica. The medical prescriptions advised by the surgeon must be scrupulously followed.
5What is the duration of the hospitalisation?
The duration of hospitalisation varies from one day with an ambulatory care, to a couple of days, depending on the operation and the recovery of each patient as well as on the complexity of the post-procedure care.
6After receiving the quotation for a cosmetic surgery, what is the withdrawal period?
The withdrawal period after receiving the quotation from the surgeon is of 15 days minimum, period during which the patient can ask any question concerning the operation to the surgeon.
7After an operation, how long does it usually take to get back to a social life?
A week minimum is required before getting back to a normal social life after surgery. This period is of course depending on the nature of the operation performed, of the remaining bruises or hematomas, and the patient ability to recover. The surgeon will specify this requested period of rest in order for the patient to organise its life accordingly.
