4. Your Assessment and Pre-admission
Before your surgery, you will receive pre-admission checks and advice: on your medicines, when not to eat preoperatively and what to bring into hospital. If you have allergies, special requirements or a specific medical condition you will be seen at a pre-admission clinic to fully prepare you for a safe visit. Surgery admission paperwork will be completed for your hospital and you will be given specific instructions.
5. Surgery at an Accredited Hospital or a minor Procedure in our Rooms
On the day itself, you will receive a warm welcome from your Anaesthetist and from the Hospital Staff.
Dr Rebecca will consult with you again and do detailed pre-operative skin markings which provide guidelines to follow in the Operating Theatre.
If you are feeling at all anxious we can administer pre-medication tablets and place anaesthetic EMLA cream on the IV insertion site.
The procedure will be performed using Dr Rebecca’s experienced surgical team.
6. Post Operative Healing and Recovery
Once your procedure is completed, we phone your relatives and check on you in the Recovery Room and then back on the ward.
Post-operative care really starts in the recovery suite with a period of observation. Once you have woken up, you will be treated for any discomfort or nausea, although the latest anaesthetics are generally less likely to cause nausea symptoms. Next, you’ll go to the main ward at the hospital, where a dedicated nurse will ensure you are comfortable and get you something to eat or drink.
Where relevant, intraoperative photos of the result achieved “on the table” are shown to you afterwards so that you can see an early result and know that all has gone well.
People who have had a local anaesthetic can usually return home almost immediately, but naturally, if you’ve had a general anaesthetic you’ll need to stay for a few hours or overnight in some cases.
Your surgeon and anaesthetist visit you daily until you’re ready to go home. Any dressings will be checked or replaced before you leave and you’ll also be given suitable painkillers, a discharge letter and emergency contact numbers for peace of mind.
