The use of anesthesia is an important part of your surgery and has risks associated with it. Some people experience abnormal heart rhythms during their surgery. General anesthesia can cause your heart to beat irregularly. Often it is a result of inefficient blood flow while under the anesthesia. The result is irregular heart rhythms, otherwise known as arrhythmia.
If you don’t like your results, you need to know what your surgeon’s policy is. Of course you expect your procedure to turn out for the best, but what if it doesn’t? You will most likely be stuck with the cost of the surgery but the doctor should be willing to work with you to fix it. Prior to undergoing surgery, you need to have an open discussion with your doctor. Make sure you understand the procedure fully and all your questions have been answered before having the procedure. Reducing stress and anxiety is important when going under the knife for a serious procedure.
There are some specific things you need to start doing about 1 month before your surgery. The most important thing to consider is pain killers. These should be stopped for at least a month before your surgery. Pain killers cause your blood to thin, which is not good for your recovery, when you need your skin to repair itself.
As you discuss possible procedures with a doctor, make certain to verify his or her credentials. Talk to him about his past education and experiences with this type of procedure. Also ask for referrals and pictures of patients who have undergone the same procedure.
