Surgery Planning

Before any type of procedure is performed, patients are expected to have a detailed discussion with their plastic surgeon. By doing so, both parties have the opportunity to contribute in the whole process and to increase the client’s level of satisfaction. The patient must discuss his/her expectations openly with their doctor, who will help determine what isn’t or what is possible to accomplish. All the different aspects of the surgery you are willing to undertake (the cost and recovery process) must be extremely clear to you.

Make sure to ask your doctor concerning the diverse details that the surgery entails. For example, you should know if you should stop taking certain medications or if you will need to refrain from drinking or eating for a certain time period before your surgery. It may be possible that you will need to take oral antibiotics before and after the whole operation, since this will help prevent any type of infections.

Your doctor will provide you with all the information you need concerning these procedures. If you have any questions, your surgeon will be more than happy to help you during your initial discussion.

The Procedure

Regardless of the area where the facial surgery will be performed, the procedure is always the same. A small incision will be made near the sector where the implant will be located; it can either be inside the mouth at the lip/gum junction or in a natural crease in the face. This will create a pocket in the facial tissue where the implant will be inserted. Once it is in place, the surgeon proceeds to stitch the incision and to bandage it. The whole process normally takes from 1 to 2 hours and a general anesthesia is used, although there may be cases in which a local anesthesia is utilized. The stitches are removed around 5 to 10 days later. If they are placed inside your mouth, they dissolve naturally during this previous time period.

Post-Op – After Surgery

Every person’s reaction to surgery varies in a case to case basis, therefore, it is highly recommended for you to discuss the post-surgery treatment with your doctor before you submit to the procedure. Most patients recover quickly and can return to normal activities the day after the operation.

After the surgical treatment, the area where the surgery was performed will be dressed in protective bandages. In the days to come, you can expect a certain amount of swelling and bruising, although you will be given medication to reduce this type of soreness. After five to six days, the swelling disappears, even though the bruising will take longer to withdraw. During this whole time, you can expect difficulties to eat or to speak.

With this type of operation, you may look and feel better in a short period of time. Nonetheless, you must be extra careful with the activities you participate in while you are recuperating. Please refrain from taking part in any behavior which may result in your face getting jarred or bumped for several weeks. Your plastic surgeon will give you further details concerning the do’s and don’ts during your recovery.

Health Issues

During this type of surgery, complications are unusual, but they sometimes do happen. These can include certain types of infection or adverse reactions to the anesthesia applied during the procedure.

Infections are generally treated with antibiotics, even though, in some cases, the implant must be removed and replaced. Another procedure may need to be performed, since from time to time, implants can shift slightly. However, keep in mind that these cases are very rare and certified surgeons always give their full efforts to prevent such difficulties from occurring.

Implants are mostly manufactured from a solid silicone material. At present, no scientific evidence has been given that proves that this substance is harmful to the body. If you have any concerns or question concerning the implants, feel free to discuss them with your doctor.

Make sure to let your doctor know if you smoke or if you have any previous health issues during your initial discussion. This will help maximize the success of the procedure and will minimize the risks, therefore, it is recommended that you follow your surgeons instructions at all times.
