Pasos previos a tu cirugía estética

Great, you made the decision to undergo that dream cosmetic surgery. Now you must prepare yourself properly. In this sense, we recommend aesthetic clinics such as CBC Estética as they provide you with a series of excellent recommendations to help you achieve the best results. It is a teamwork! Do your part, leave the rest in the hands of the experts. 

First they will ask you for preoperative tests

Before any operation, the experts will ask you for a series of preoperative tests to confirm your health status. It is necessary to follow the instructions to avoid problems in the future. Among the required studies are:

  1. VHS.
  2. If the surgery is nasal, they will ask you for a scan of the area or a rhinomanometry.
  3. Hemogram .
  4. Some doctors order glycosylated hemoglobin and an EKG.
  5. Coagulation test.
  6. Biochemical profile.
  7. If it is a breast surgery, an ecotomography will be necessary.

What happens a month before cosmetic surgery?

Just one month before, you will be asked to give up tobacco and alcohol. According to experts, the consumption of both substances slows healing and increases the risks. Also, you may be prescribed medication for proper liver function.

Less to go! One week 

However, a week before undergoing the operation it is recommended to rest at home to avoid the spread of any bacteria or infection . Take care of yourself as much as possible to avoid delays.

the day is almost here

One day before you must make the pre-admission to the clinic to guarantee your stability and peace of mind. I recommend you not to eat anything after 12 AM, eat very light meals well before midnight, take a good shower, rest and leave everything ready to go without delay the next day.

An important tip: it is better to ask for help or ask for a taxi to go to the clinic, do not drive. Also do not wear very heavy clothing or accessories. 

Don’t forget it on the day of your operation!

It is necessary to bring your medical history and tests on the day of the operation. Also, have with you the usual medications, documentation, personal hygiene products and comfortable clothing. Of course, you can’t forget the phone and its charger.

What happens if I don’t follow the recommendations?

If medical advice is not followed, such as carrying out previous tests and avoiding the consumption of tobacco or alcohol, complications will be the order of the day. It is necessary not to forget it: doctors always give recommendations to help us achieve our goals and take care of our health.

Avoid being stubborn at such crucial moments. Now, rest and nutrition, although it may not seem like it, are also important; if you eat very heavy food you could feel bad the next day.

Similarly, it is important to prepare your bag or luggage bag in advance to carry everything and only what is necessary. Organize yourself and think of everything that can be useful to you. 

After the surgery you just have to rest and wait for the results guaranteed by the experts. Trust them!
