Surgery delivers significant and long-lasting benefits for aesthetic and reconstructive conditions. Optimal pre- and post-operative care help individuals attain the better results and reduces recovery time.
Good outcomes arise from the appreciation of the form and function of the individual anatomy, clinical experience, an eye for detail and meticulous execution.
Information for Patients:
Picasso Plastic Surgery’s care, team and insurance claims.
Attention to detail makes the difference between a good result and a great result.
Before seeking consultation, it would be important for prospective patients to know their medical history and the chronic medications that they are consuming. Previous blood and scan investigation reports, if available, should be brought along with you for the consultation. History of prior hospitalizations, treatments and surgeries are important as well.
Prior to surgery, it is important to maintain good nutrition to optimize wound healing. Chronic medications should continue to be consumed in their usual manner unless you are advised to stop.
Certain vitamins and supplements may contribute to easy bleeding and bruising, and you are advised to check with the clinic staff if you are able to continue with them. Supplements are often stopped for 1 to 2 weeks before the surgery.
Smoking affects wound healing adversely, and it is advised for smokers to stop, or reduce smoking as much as possible, for 2 to 4 weeks preop and continuing into the postoperative period.
At Picasso Plastic Surgery, we strive to provide excellent postoperative care to ensure that the individuals’ recovery process is smooth and pleasant. Our associates will provide you with a helpline that you may reach out for assistance if need be and advise you on your follow-up appointment date(s) where appropriate.
