It is said that well begun is half done. While this is true for many things in life, when it comes to a surgery, what happens after it is also crucial.
Let us consider this scenario: You do your research and get the best deal for your breast augmentation surgery. You speak to the surgeon and confide your expectations and worst fears about the surgery. The surgeon—a specialist—assures you of certain results and you go in for the surgery. Whether you take the expensive route of getting operated in Australia/New Zealand or you decide on the smart option of getting operated in Malaysia/Thailand, there are a couple of things that you should always keep in mind about any surgery, breast augmentation being no exception.
- Follow the surgeon’s advice about dos and don’ts before and after the surgery. Whether you are in the recovery area of the hospital or in a hotel or at your home, remember to follow the surgeon’s instructions meticulously. The surgeon will direct you to apply some medication or take some medicine orally after the surgery. These instructions will be given to accelerate the healing process and to reduce the inherent risk of infection. If you do not pay heed to the surgeon’s advice, you may invite trouble, both medically and financially.
- Clean the incision area as directed by the surgeon. Also, follow up with the surgeon as per schedule so that any anomaly is detected well in time and there are no unpleasant surprises.
Follow these instructions and recover from your surgery as intended. If anything goes wrong inadvertently, don’t forget to contact your surgeon immediately.
