About the day of the intervention at Clinic BeauCare
Before starting your surgery, you will get a consultation with both your surgeon and anesthetist (for surgery with general anesthetic). You should be present in our clinic well in time, mostly one hour before the procedure. On our website you can find a map to travel to Clinic BeauCare.
You should be sober on your surgery date, which means you couldn’t eat or drink 6 hours before getting the procedure done. You shouldn’t smoke or use any form of tobacco 6 weeks before and 4 weeks after your surgery. Tobacco increases the risks of complications with 50%, because it has a negative effect on your health in general and thus also on the result of your surgery.
The evening before your surgery
Make sure to easily pay the remainder of your costs on the day. When you will have a face lift or tummy tuck done, you should buy compressive stockings and bring them on your surgery day. You should also fill out your medical questionnaire and consent form at home and bring them with you.
Choosing your breast implants
Clinic BeauCare offers a large variety of high quality breast implants. At the consultation with your surgeon on your surgery day you could change the volume and type of your breast implants. In order to achieve the result you’re looking for we advice you to bring pictures of breasts you like or a bra you would want to wear after your surgery.
