Before the operation, you visit a doubt.The reasons for this may be rational, such as the risk of infection or satisfaction with the result.By irrational reasons include, for example, fear not wake up after the operation.At the heart of all doubt is one main question: is it worth it?Only you can answer it.If "yes", then do not stop.When in doubt, give up the operation.Since many surgeons are billed for consultation within a few days after surgery, ask to do so in advance.If you are thinking about failure, let the surgeon its decision as soon as possible.

s will be repaid with interest.Nervousness and anxiety before surgery lead to the release of adrenaline, resulting in increased heart rate and blood pressure.Furthermore, adrenaline increases anxiety that leads to the development of even more adrenaline.Patients with elevated levels of adrenaline in the blood, usually requires a large dose of anesthetics and drugs in order to achieve the desired level of anesthesia and to maintain it.The body will need more time to bring these substances that will increase the recovery period after anesthesia, increasing the probability of occurrence of nausea after surgery and increased post-operative discomfort.The excitement does not affect the aesthetic result of the operation, but can complicate recovery period.If possible, find a way to remain calm.

morning before surgery

Do not eat or drink, unless you allow the doctor.At first sight, this behavior - not the best way to start a day full of anxiety and worry, but this is a good reason.During surgery, your stomach must be empty in order to minimize the likelihood of vomiting.If you are taking prescription medications, ask your surgeon if you can take them the morning of surgery, washed down with a sip of water.Leave all jewelry at home.Do not drive yourself behind the wheel, unless the surgeon confirmed that after the operation you will be able to get to the house.

Understanding anesthesia

three methods of anesthesia used in aesthetic surgery: intravenous anesthesia, general and local anesthesia.

General anesthesia

General anesthesia causes a deep sleep and temporarily paralyzes the body.You can not breathe on their own, so after you fall asleep, the anesthetist will insert a tube into your windpipe.After surgery, you will wake up, and the tube will be removed before you go to the mind.Some patients after general anesthesia is nausea, but with the advent of modern anesthetics such case, are becoming increasingly rare.

General anesthesia is required for large operations, such as lifting the hips, body contouring plastic stomach correction, large volume liposuction.Many plastic surgeons prefer this kind of pain relief and for other operations, such as operations on the chest or face lift, especially if they are performed in combination with other treatments.

Some patients ask what will happen if they do not "wake up" after general anesthesia.It is an irrational fear.At the end of the anesthetic you wake up.General anesthesia is safe - as long as you are healthy, and provides anesthesia experienced specialist, who then monitors your condition.

Patients also wondered what would happen if they wake up during surgery.To avoid this, use the monitor, showing how much anesthetic you get and how quickly it is eliminated from the body.Another precaution - to ask the surgeon does not apply during the operation paralyzing drugs.In this case, you will begin to move long before you come to the realization that medical team will indicate the need for another dose of anesthetic.

Intravenous anesthesia

For intravenous anesthesia, which is also called superficial anesthesia through intravenous catheter introduced drugs that cause drowsiness and relaxation.Many operations, such as a face lift, eyelid surgery, liposuction and nose on small volumes, can be comfortably and safely performed using intravenous anesthesia.

With this method of pain relief you are breathing on their own, and breathing tube is not required.After the sedatives will act, the surgeon will make ledokaina injection (drug similar to novocaine) in the corresponding area.Most likely, you will not feel the pain of the injection.Depending on the depth of anesthesia you sleep throughout the operation and did not remember or periodically wake up.If you watch, you realize that you are in the operating room, but you will not care.You will not feel the excitement, even if by nature prone to anxiety.If you do not want to stay awake during the operation, in advance tell your surgeon or anesthesiologist.Detailed discussions with them, most likely, will dispel your fears.

Local anesthesia

With local anesthesia certain area of ​​the body loses sensitivity by injection, but without the use of sedatives.The injection of local anesthetic, similar to procaine, initially causes a burning sensation.Soon it replaced by numbness.Local anesthesia is permitted by increasing the lips, removing birthmarks and other small operations.


operation when using general anesthesia, you will not remember anything from the moment that you bring into the operating and until such time as you do not wake up in the House.In the case of intravenous anesthesia during the operation, you will remain in a relaxed state, or dive into a light sleep, and not likely to remember details.

With local anesthesia you will be fully conscious throughout the operation, including at a time when the surgeon will inject the drug, causing numbness.sensitivity loss lasts for 2 to 24 hours, depending on the drug used.

duration of the operation

duration of the operation, different doctors may differ materially.Each surgeon working at your own pace."Faster" does not necessarily mean "qualified", and your time is not indicative of the quality of work.I know of a plastic surgeon who in two hours doing a facelift, forehead lift and eyelid.His colleague, using the same technique, a similar operation takes seven hours.Prices are the same for both the surgeons, the doctors working in one operating and achieve superior results.Nevertheless, each of them has its own pace.

After surgery

After the operation you will be allowed to go home after you wake up and finally come to life.At long or unpleasant procedures such as liposuction or stomach correction of a large volume, it is better to stay in the hospital overnight.
