Postoperative Care

Following the aesthetic surgery operations performed; postoperative care should not be disrupted in order to shorten the patient’s healing process, prevent scar formation on the skin, nourish and moisturize the skin, reveal a radiant skin, inform the patient, give detailed information about the things to be considered and shorten the healing process.

Although each aesthetic operation has different effects, post-operative care gains importance since there is an incision on the skin. Especially for the body parts that attract the most attention, such as the face, postoperative care should be considered as a necessity rather than a preference.

The efficiency of surgical operations performed to improve one’s appearance, get rid of signs of aging, and achieve a more natural and impressive appearance can increase with postoperative care practices.

Postoperative Care Processes
Surgeons examine the scars in the postoperative period that begins when the patients leave the operation; after the effect of anesthesia wears off, the patient is kept under observation or discharged if necessary.

In this process, regular dressing of the body parts where aesthetic surgery is performed is very important for doctors to ensure patient follow-up and to prevent any complications during healing.

Patients who have undergone aesthetic surgery operations are called for control interviews at certain intervals. In these meetings, both the course of wound healing is monitored and detailed information is given to patients on what to pay attention to in the post-operative period.

Surgeons and nurses act together in postoperative care processes. This care should never be interrupted. Follow-up of the postoperative process is very important for the healing process to proceed smoothly and to intervene immediately in case of a possible problem.

During the post-operative care process, the patient can learn about the care processes that he/she should follow, how he/she should eat and whether he/she should exercise or not. They become more conscious and can overcome the post-operative period in the most comfortable way possible as their health status is closely monitored.

Importance of Care After Aesthetic Operations
The most misconception about aesthetic operations is that the ideal appearance will be achieved immediately after the operation. It is not possible to see the effect of the operation in an instant. The post-operative care process is very important in order to feel the effects of the surgery at the maximum rate and should definitely be carried out by professionals.

Care processes create an opportunity for the tissues not to be intervened harshly, for the dressing to be performed in the most accurate way and for the postoperative improvements to be monitored by the surgeons.

Care examinations, which provide detailed information about what needs to be done to improve the patient’s health, are also an important opportunity for patients to express their complaints. When it comes to aesthetic operations, patients do not want to experience any discomfort after the operation. However, it should be known that there is no such possibility due to the nature of the intervention performed. Although different complaints may be experienced after aesthetic surgeries depending on the scope of the surgery, it is possible to increase the comfort of the patient through professional care processes.

Care controls are also critical to ensure that the patient has realistic expectations during the recovery process. Expectations regarding the recovery process after these operations, which are performed under anesthesia, incisions are made in the skin and the body is exposed to physical stress, should be realistic. Otherwise, even if the healing course of the patients continues normally, their worries and unhappiness increase.
