The thought of having cosmetic surgery is exciting, but it can make you nervous as the surgery approaches. Here is some information about the day of surgery:
When you arrive at the surgery center, you will greeted by a nurse who will take you to an exam room. An exam gown and foot covers will be provided. The nurse will ask you basic questions regarding your last meal, medications, allergies and who will pick you up after the surgery is completed. Dr. Jaibaji will mark the surgery site and will answer any additional questions. You will also meet the anesthesiologist before the surgery who will explain the anesthesia technique and your recovery after surgery.
You will then be escorted to the surgery room and greeted by the entire surgery team. You will be connected to a monitoring device and the anesthesia will be administered.
The Recovery Room
After the surgery is complete, you will be transferred to our private recovery room. Due to the anesthetic medications you may not remember much. Once you are fully awake and the pain in under control, you will be ready to go home. During your time in the recovery room you will have 1 on 1 attention from a registered nurse. The anesthesiologist will also supervise you recovery.
The length of stay in the recovery room varied from one patient to another and will also depend on the type of surgery. But it can be anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours.
Before you leave the surgery center, instructions will be given to your caregivers things to look for and the date and time of your first office visit after surgery will also be given.
