One of the biggest concerns that I hear from women contemplating cosmetic surgery is “what if something happens to me while I am under anesthesia and it’s because I am doing something “selfish”?
First, this is a normal and healthy concern. Everyone is nervous to some degree to have surgery, any kind of surgery, but what makes it especially hard is that as women we are usually the care givers for our families. So we wrestle with a certain level of guilt when we do something personal.
At our surgery center we have board certified anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists who provide the finest quality of care. Patient safety is our number one concern and we have staffed our practice with the most experienced clinical care givers you will find.
Every precaution is taken even before surgery to make sure that our patients are medically clear to undergo anesthesia, following all state guidelines as well as utilizing the surgeon’s expertise to determine eligibility for the procedure.
EKGs, vital signs and blood-work are reviewed by all clinical staff in preparation for your procedure. The patient meets with the nurse, anesthesiologist / nurse anesthetist and surgeon prior to the surgery and answers any last minute questions and concerns. Once the patient is made completely comfortable they are escorted by medical staff into the operating room.
At no point during the procedure does the anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist leave the room and the patient is monitored by state of the art equipment and the medical staff on hand. Once the procedure is completed the patient is taken into recovery where our nursing staff monitors the rest of the recovery process until the patient is awake, alert and oriented.
Patients are not released until our staff feels that adequate pain control is achieved and the discharge is approved by anesthesia. Once approved the patient is safe to travel home or taken upstairs to recover in one of our recovery suites.
At Giles Breast and Body Plastic Surgery, we do our best to make the surgical process an informed and pleasant experience and understand that there are natural anxieties and concerns. The best way to help alleviate the stress of the experience is to talk openly with the doctor so that all your questions can be addressed prior to your procedure and that your desired cosmetic results are achieved.
Remember it is completely normal to have concerns. Surgery is not a decision that should be made lightly and we hope that in addressing any issues that may arise it helps to ease your mind and make the experience one that you can look forward to.
