These factors were essential because, for example, performing surgery or natural looking nose surgery (เสริม จมูก ธรรมชาติ which is the term in Thai) without first knowing whether or not that place had performed a good number of plastic surgeries with good results would be a “shot in the dark.” It is essential to know how to choose a plastic surgeon and whether that surgeon performs the chin surgery in a hospital and not in a clinic.
But why? Clinics do not have the proper infrastructure for surgery, whether plastic or not. Every surgery requires the security that only a specialized hospital can provide. Another way to know if the place is reliable is to conduct a pre-anesthetic evaluation (APA). Many places don’t even mention the APA, even if it’s your right guaranteed by law. Require an appointment with the anesthetist days or weeks before the operation.
Apart from all these factors, the postoperative infrastructure, available 24 hours a day, is essential because you will have the necessary support for that moment if any concerns arise. All these factors are the basis for the safety and outcome of your genioplasty. But how to choose the ideal place? Dream Plastic has a group where thousands of women post about their surgeries. In this group, you can ask questions. Who better than the women themselves to tell the experiences they have lived? Access here.
What To Do In The Preoperative Period Of Mentoplasty?
The preoperative recommendations for performing a mentoplasty are:
- Contact the clinic, until the day before the chin surgery, in case of viruses, dental infections, throat affections, etc
- Arrive at the hospital on the day and time indicated on the admission guide
- Avoid smoking for at least 15 days before having your genioplasty
- Fast for 8 hours before the scheduled time for the operation
- Do not consume any alcoholic beverage in the previous 72 hours
- Rest well the night before
- Take tests to the hospital
For 15 days before the procedure, avoid any medication based on acetylsalicylic acid (ASA, Aspirin, Melhoral, Bufferin, Doril, etc.) or any medication with an anticoagulant effect.
How Is A Mentoplasty Performed?
Local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia is applied to perform the mentoplasty. Then, the doctor makes an incision inside the mouth, in the lower region of the lip. In this part of the change from the lower lip to the gum, he makes a small cut and places the prosthesis in front of the bone. Once this is done, the stitches are closed.
