Delaware Cosmetic Surgery – A Better Experience

Having working on the administrative staff for several years with Dr. Chris Saunders, we have come to realize some simple but proven points that will help you have a better surgical and non surgical experience.

Read all preoperative instructions!

It sounds silly but many people don’t read them. Read them more than once and again right before surgery!

This will minimize any mistakes that you might make that could effect surgery. The advice in the instructions is very important and we want your plastic surgery experience to be the best!!

Delaware Plastic Surgery – Tips to Make Surgery Go Well

Delaware plastic surgery patients and Pennsylvania plastic surgery patients may have to get preoperative tests before their cosmetic surgery. This is true before cosmetic facial surgery, cosmetic breast surgery,  cosmetic liposuction, cosmetic tummy tuck , and most plastic surgery procedures. Get all of your pre-surgery testing scheduled as soon as you receive your packet for your surgery. This testing is your responsibility and is required to be done prior to your surgery. Not having all of your testing completed before your surgery date can cancel your surgery. Scheduling your testing as soon as you receive your packet prevents last minute rushing or forgetting to have it done. This risks the cancellation of your surgery.

Mammograms are extremely important before breast surgery. This includes before cosmetic breast surgery and cosmetic breast enlargement. Get the mammogram done right away. It is very common for the radiologist to “call you back” for additional views or ultrasounds. It can cause a week delay and interfere with your cosmetic breast surgery. It can also be very scary when this happens as it can raise fear of cancer. If you get called back, it is probably “not” cancer, but follow thru and get it done.

Both Delaware plastic surgery patients and Pennsylvania plastic surgery patients need to complete preoperative testing in a timely fashion. This will help Dr Saunders with your surgery.
