What will happen on the day of cosmetic surgery?

If you are being admitted as an in-patient then you will have to complete an admission form. This is a standard procedure and will not take very long.

You will be settled into your room and a nurse will perform some pre-surgery checks. These include blood pressure as well as taki9ng blood and urine samples.

You will also be given a pair of compression stockings to wear. Being inactive carries a small risk of DVT or Deep Vein Thrombosis and wearing these can help to prevent this. You may also be given an injection of a blood thinning drug called Heparin. After your procedure you will be encouraged to move around as much as you can to prevent any build up of blood clots in the legs.

Your surgeon will visit you before your surgery to check that everything is okay and that you are satisfied with what will happen. If you have any questions then feel free to ask them. Make sure you fully understand what this cosmetic procedure will entail.
