Important Tips for Post-Surgery Healing

When you’re preparing for a cosmetic procedure, there are a number of important things on your preparation list. Between arranging for transportation to and from your facility to making sure your home or workspace will be taken care of while you’re away, you’ll certainly have a lot on your mind.

Don’t forget, however, to keep in mind not just your pre-operative needs, but your post-surgery needs as well. The following tips will help you prepare for what comes after your cosmetic procedure experience.

Healing at Your Own Pace
Heal at Your Own Pace

Stay in contact with your surgeon

At the offices of Dr. Brett Stompro and Dr. Chester Cheng, we’re dedicated to being there for you at every step of the plastic surgery process, from beginning to end. This care does not stop when you leave our facility—after your procedure, you will be contacted by phone and a member of our staff will go through any questions you might have right away.

After this initial follow-up call, we encourage you to contact us at any time with your questions or concerns about your recovery. This process of healing is not just physical but also mental, and our staff at the offices of Stompro and Cheng is prepared and available 24 hours a day to provide the attention you need for a successful, speedy, and complete recovery.

Take advantage of post-op care opportunities

During the first week of your recovery period, you’ll be asked to come back to our offices for a checkup. Our doctors will provide a thorough examination to ensure that there have been no complications or setbacks with your procedure. This first appointment is also a great time to review the particular care methods you can do at home relating to your procedure. In addition, this appointment allows you to further build a relationship with your doctor that will continue with the lifetime post-operative appointments offered by our offices.

Heal at your own pace

Advances in medicine have made vast improvements in recovery time for virtually all cosmetic procedures. With the combination of smaller incisions, intraoperative anesthesia techniques, and better procedures, many patients return to their normal activities within a few days.

In addition, a better understanding of the benefits of gentle handling of the tissues during surgery limits swelling and bruising. That being said, it is essential that you take the time needed to fully recover, and remember that healing time will be different for each individual patient. By paying attention to your health and keeping an open line of communication with your surgeon and nurses, your recovery will be speedy and safe.

At the offices of Dr. Stompro and Dr. Cheng, our goal is to keep you informed before, during, and after your surgical experience. In addition to achieving your desired results, we’re dedicated to making your entire experience as comfortable and open as possible. If you’re ready to discuss more information on a cosmetic procedure or have questions at any stage of your process, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Call: 925-736-0401

Liposuction Options and Techniques

What are your Liposuction options?

A lot has changed since the earliest days of the liposuction surgery. The procedure used to require hospitalization and general anesthesia for every patient undergoing the surgery, and even occasionally required blood transfusions to replace all of the blood lost during the procedure

This was under the old “dry technique,” a liposuction technique that has basically been made obsolete by technological advances in liposuction since the 1990’s. Dr. Stompro mentions that most procedures today can be performed with local anesthesia and with much quicker recovery.

Here are some of the more common liposuction techniques that are available in today’s world:

  • The “Wet Technique” - Fluid is injected to the area of the procedure to help loosen fat cells and reduce bruising. Once the cells are loose, they are drawn out in a surgical vacuum device.
  • The “Super-Wet Technique” - The same basic idea is used for this procedure as the wet technique, but the amount of saline in the fluid used is more diluted. This surgery is preferred by some surgeons for the way it balances fluid levels.
  • The Tumescent Technique - A large amount of liquid is injected into the area of the procedure, with the contents of that liquid even more diluted than the wet and super wet techniques. More liquid means more space created in between muscles and fatty tissue, which gives the surgeon more space to operate. However, this procedure takes longer than both the wet technique and the super-wet technique.
  • Internal Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction - Ultrasonic vibrations are transmitted inside the body that works to break down fat cells. This liquefies the fat and makes it easier to remove. This option requires less movement by the surgeon, which means it is easier on the patient’s body. However, there is an increased risk of developing seromas, burns, necrosis or scarring
  • External Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction - Like the internal option, ultrasonic energy is used to liquefy the fat. But in the external option, the energy is applied from outside the body through the skin rather than from inside the body. Surgeons believe this creates less risk of seromas and necrosis.
  • Power-Assisted Liposuction - A specialized cannula, that moves mechanically, is used to reduce the amount and the speed of movements required by the surgeon. This is a more subtle, smooth surgery option, which is easier on the patient’s body. This is a relatively new procedure.
