If you wish to have plastic surgery performed, you should first consult the surgeon. For this you can make an appointment on our website or at the front desk of the Kotka Erahaigla. The cost of a surgeon consultation is 55 euros.
Each patient is different and needs an individual approach. It’s important for the patient to know what they want and that the expectations for the results are realistic. Various possibilities, risks, preparation for surgery, preceding examinations, postoperative care, hospital charges and price of the procedure are discussed at the first visit. At the same time photos of earlier surgeries can be viewed and pre-operational and post-operational appearance of patients can be compared.
In the course of the consultation the doctor will find out the client’s expectations and wishes for the final result.
Medical examination will be carried out before each surgery. Questions will be asked about illnesses suffered and chronic diseases and allergies occurred.
Coming to Surgery
A patient coming to breast surgery shall go to mammography (www.mammograaf.ee) for breast examination. Also, ECG and blood tests shall be made.
Both before and after plastic surgery, it is recommended to have cosmetological lymph treatment performed, which will prepare the skin for the operation and will speed up the healing process.
When coming to an operation, you should have not eaten or drunk at least for six hours before the operation. You should not smoke or chew a chewing gum on that day in order to avoid vomiting and aspiration of the gastric contents into lungs. Medicaments taken regularly can be used up to the day of the operation, unless otherwise agreed upon.
Aspirin and other medicaments having direct effect on blood coagulation must not be used for ten days before a planned operation. An anesthesiologist must be consulted previously concerning psychopharmaceuticals and medicaments affecting coagulation. Patients suffering from diabetes shall undergo previous blood sugar test and blood sugar analysis on the morning of the operation day.
