As a cosmetic surgeon, I keep getting back to back questions from my patients regarding procedures. I think it is extremely important for a doctor to address all the queries put forward by a patient so that there are no doubts in the mind before one makes the final decision to undergo a procedure.

When patient comes to me with queries related to Gynecometia, they ask a series of questions. Through this blog, I will try to address some of those which will largely help the readers in getting an understanding about what they can expect before, during and after the procedure.

Where is the surgery performed?

If the clinic is equipped to handle the procedure then it can be done as an outpatient surgical procedure. If there is a medical history of a patient which may create issues during procedure or requires additional care, then it is recommended to do the procedure in a hospital. On case to case basis, we may recommend an overnight stay.

  • Have someone to be with your after the process. The sedative effect needs some time to wear off. You can really use the help from a friend or relative who can drive you home and be with you at least for a day.
