Why Take a Shower Before Cosmetic Surgery?

April 23rd, 2019

Why Take Shower Before Surgery?

Patients play a significant role in preparation for elective cosmetic surgery. Following  a few simple instructions is essential in helping to make the post-operative course of recovery easier and safer. Here is another point that I include in pre-op instructions for my patients prepping for their surgery. Take A Shower. Any time you shower, the number of bacteria on the skin is reduced. Taking a shower the night before and the morning before surgery can go a long way in reducing the risk for infection. Regular soap is fine for this task.

See my Top 10 Tips for Cosmetic Surgery Recovery HERE for our patients, although it is important for patients to follow whatever instructions their chosen surgeon provides. Surgery by and large is safe. Complications are always an inherent risk. You can help in reducing post-operative risks by following these simple tips before and after your cosmetic surgery.

66 Year old Male Facelift: Happy Patient

April 19th, 2019

Dr. Bashioum Surgery

Gregg writes: I am a 66 year old male and had a facelift on 12/26/18. When I was looking into getting some work done I selected several Doctors in the area and had a consult with them. Dr. Bashioum and his team made me feel the most comfortable.I am now about 3.5 months post op. I continue to be very pleased with the work that was done. Everyone on the team makes you feel so comfortable and explains things in great detail and welcomes questions any time. Dr. Bashioum even called me on 12/25/18 in the evening to see if I had any questions prior to surgery. I don’t know of any other doctors that would demonstrate that kind of patient care. After the surgery I was surprised how alert I felt. With other medically required surgeries I did not have that experience. Great thanks to everyone on the team!!

Dr. Bashioum replies, Hi Gregg, You are very kind to take the time to include your comments about your facelift experience with the readers on our Nipntuck.com Blog. We love to hear that you are pleased with your results from surgery 3.5 months ago. I’m always amazed that patients are surprised to receive a personal call from me before and after surgery. I like to think that patients appreciate having their questions answers and a phone call is an easy way to put patients at ease. Surgery and recovery is stressful for most patients and a little reassuring goes a long way to ease the experience by knowing what to expect. I will look forward to seeing you again in a few months, Gregg. I will share your comments with my staff, always the highlight of my week! Thanks again, Dr. Ralph Bashioum
