By listening, being accessible and responsive throughout your whole experience, Dr Munteanu accompanies you during your journey to ensure you receive the best results, safety, and care.
Only by working closely with you to understand your personal goals, is it possible to take the safest and most sound steps towards achieving your desired look.
During your initial consultation, Dr Carmen Munteanu will spend a significant amount of time explaining the options available, address your specific concerns, and help you understand realistic expectations about your procedure.
Before your procedure, essential steps taken are:
Plastic surgery is always performed in an accredited theatre. This can be either a hospital, or a day surgery facility, and involves the care of a consultant anaesthetist, as well as trained nurses. You may need to spend some time in the hospital, depending on the nature of the procedure. This is usually until the drains are removed, pain control is achieved, and you can eat and drink properly, although sometimes it can be a longer period, depending on the degree of assistance required. When you leave, you will have a new appointment, emergency contacts, your surgeon’s personal contact details, as well as instructions about how to look after yourself at home.
Every person is a special, different entity, with special requirements. We believe this and treat everyone accordingly. You will have some guidelines about what to expect, the limitations, recovery time as well as risks, but the reality can be quite different from one person to another. The common sense advice for every patient is to listen to their surgeon and their instructions, even if they feel well and capable. You are feeling well for a reason, and that is due to following the correct instructions so far. It is very predictable (unfortunately still occurring) that once the rules are not respected, unnecessary delays and unwanted events can occur.
I cannot overemphasize the need for the necessary recovery time, especially for big procedures.- Dr Carmen Munteanu
