It is important that you have a thorough and honest conversation with your surgeon during your consultation. Explain your expectations and concerns. By doing so, good communication will allow him to explain in detail the techniques, risks, outcome and recovery process of your surgery.
Before your surgery, the doctor will measure, mark and prepare the area. Such markings will be explained to you once more. General Anesthesia is often applied, although there are cases where epidural will be best. You anesthesiologist will discuss this beforehand. The final decision may vary depending on the patient’s health history.
