Will it Hurt?
During the procedure, anesthesia
ensures that you're comfortable and feel no pain. If general anesthesia is
used, you'll even sleep through the entire operation. After surgery, any
pain or discomfort you may experience can usually be controlled through
medication and will usually subside within a matter of days.
How soon can I get back to work?
It depends greatly on the procedure,
but on average, most plastic surgery patients are back to work within 7-10
Will everyone know?
Usually not. Good plastic surgery
enhances your looks naturally and often goes unnoticed. Friends may ask if
you've been on a vacation, a new diet or exercise regime but typically, they
won't know unless you tell them.
Will there be scars?
Yes. Will they be noticeable? Probably
not. Your surgeon will make every effort to keep scars as minimal as
possible and try to hide them in the natural lines and creases of your skin.
For majority of procedures your scars will fade over time and become barely
noticeable. However ultimate quality of scars would depend upon healing
quality of your skin.
How long does it take?
Not as long as you would think. Some
procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis, require no overnight
stay and usually take only a few hours. You'll probably have to come in
several hours before surgery to recover from the anesthesia. By then you'll
be back on your feet and a friend or relative will escort you home to
recover in your own bed. However some reconstructive surgery procedures can
involve long hospitalization.
What do I do next?
If after going through this brochure
you'd like to find out more about plastic surgery, a consultation with a
qualified surgeon is the next logical step. It's a quick, easy way to find
out what plastic surgery can do for you.
What is the kind of sedation / anaesthesia used?
Many of the procedures can be done on
an out patient basis under local anesthesia with sedation. However, major
procedures may require general or regional anaesthesia with a one or two day
stay in hospital.
What is the cost?
Each treatment is unique and is
customized to the patient. The cost of a surgery depends on the time
involvement and the nature of the surgery. This makes it very difficult for
us to publish any package rates on the website. We would only be able to
give you the cost for the procedures during consultation.
