Rhinoplasty Recovery Guide 👃 - 9 - Requirements On The Day of Rhinoplasty Surgery

What To Do On The Day Of The Rhinoplasty Surgery

How should you come to the hospital at the day of rhinoplasty operation?

On the day of surgery, the patient should be hungry and thirsty. If operation is performed under general anesthesia; eating and drinking fluid should be terminated at least 8 hours before the surgery appointment time. During general anesthesia, muscle relaxants are used. While in the horizontal position, stomach contents can leak to the lungs, causing aspiration pneumonitis

You should be in the hospital at least 2 hours before the surgery appointment time!

You need to reach the hospital on the day of surgery, 8 hours hungry and anhydrous, and at least 2 hours after the surgery appointment sale. The reason for this is that the morning of the operation requires routine anesthesia surveys and additional time for the anesthesia examination. Patients who go to the hospital for further anesthesia examination on the day of surgery may come to the surgery an hour before the surgery. Almost all of our patients prefer to arrive 2 hours early on the day of surgery because they want to complete all procedures on the same day. While some patients fast for 8 hours before surgery, they may accidentally drink water right before surgery. Remember that if you drink just a cup of coffee or a glass of water, you need to wait up to 6 additional hours. This is because under general anesthesia, that is, while you are unconscious; all stomach contents may leak into the lungs, causing lung damage and serious respiratory distress. Therefore, it is necessary to be hungry and thirsty for 8 hours before general anesthesia.

Is it necessary to bring special clothes on the operation day?

Generally, patients are dressed in patient clothes in accordance with sterilization procedures on the day of surgery. When the battalion period was also considered; it may be convenient to bring a pair of sweatpants and sweatpants which can be easily removed on the day of surgery.
