More Than Just an Operation: Pre-Op and Post-Op Care
It’s too easy to think that cosmetic surgery is just ‘surgery’. In actual fact, there are three stages in cosmetic surgery abroad: the pre-operative preparation stage, the surgery itself, and the post-operative care. When you’re looking around for surgeries and considering your options, it’s important to think about pre-op and post-op care, too – because they’re just as important as the surgery itself!
Preparing for surgery abroad includes both mental and physical preparation. Physical preparation consists of refraining from drinking alcohol and smoking, staying physically fit and maintaining a healthy diet. It also means making the plans for your surgery and post-op care, such as travel plans and accommodation. Psychologically speaking, it’s important to feel ready for the big change you’re about to undergo.
After your surgery, you’ll also need to make sure you receive the right post-op care. This will vary surgery to surgery, but in many cases you’ll need to take time off work, and make sure you rest properly following your surgery. Aftercare is important to make sure you’re feeling psychologically and physically well after your surgery.
