Tips before a cosmetic surgery

The number of cosmetic surgeries has increased in recent years worldwide, with more people seeking a better physical appearance. This type of medical procedures can be performed on different parts of the body but always by people specialized in the specialized clinic of JL Prado Surgical Center in Tijuana.

Aesthetic surgeries, like any operation, carry a risk for the patient. That is why it is very important to take into account certain aspects before entering the operating room for your total peace of mind. If you plan to undergo plastic surgery, or know someone who is going to do it, it is key to keep these tips in mind:

Evaluate if you really need surgery: aesthetic surgeries are necessary in many cases, to correct physical defects that generate complexes in people. However, many medical procedures are performed that are not really necessary, and patients enter the operating room only on a whim. Remember that this type of medical procedure has a level of risk, and it is not worthwhile to undergo the scalpel without a valid reason.

Seek medical advice: do not make any decision without first consulting one or several doctors to advise you on the procedure to which you want to submit. The specialists will explain the details of the operation, its benefits and risks and, more importantly, they could offer you a solution that does not require entering the operating room.

Know the risks of the operation: many people make the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery without knowing the risks involved. It is important to know what you are facing, since it can make you change your mind or, at least, be prepared for the postoperative period.

Choose a clinic of excellent reputation: do not risk your life in a clinic with a cloudy reputation. If you have really decided to submit to the operation, you need a medical center that offers security. If you have the opportunity to go to aesthetic surgery clinics where they have operated known that can attest to the professionalism of the institution, much better. Annually many people lose their lives in the so-called “garage clinics”, where unscrupulous doctors dare to perform aesthetic operations without the minimum measures of health.

Previous medical examinations: before entering the operating room there are a series of tests that must be performed on the patient to assess their health status. For example, some people are allergic to a type of sedatives and anesthesia, information that doctors need to know. If you have never had surgery, there are tests that determine the medically that your body can support and those that can not. Do you suffer from diabetes or hypertension? That’s what doctors need to know before starting surgery, since some diseases can raise the risks of surgery.

Implants and reliable prostheses: if the surgery needs some type of implant or prosthesis, you have to know the reliability and origin of these materials. The breast implants, for example, can not be biopolymers, since the body does not accept this substance and the consequences can be irreversible.
You must remain calm: if the surgery is a decision made, then you must strive to maintain a state of tranquility as much as you can. If a person is too upset, doctors have the power to cancel the operation because the anesthesia might not make the necessary effect on the body. If you need psychological help, do not hesitate to go to a professional.
Pre-operative indications: the clinics give their patients a series of preoperative indications essential for the success of the procedure. The most common is usually the state of fasting at least 8 hours before the operation.
Postoperative care: it is important that the patient knows how postoperative care will be so that nothing will take him by surprise. At medical appointments prior to surgery, doctors can tell you about the pains you will feel at the recovery stage and the foods you can take in the days after the procedure.
Medical coverage: every person who enters an operating room must have an insurance policy that covers the unforeseen costs that occur in this type of procedure. So count on the money necessary for the operation, you must join an insurance company that supports you.
