If surgery goes forward, the patient will undergo additional testing (blood test, urine test, chest x-ray and ECG test), and discuss their medical history. The anesthetist will provide suggestions and precautions before anesthesia.

Our guide to a successful Facial Contouring surgery

After surgery, you can drink beverages such as Gatorade, milk and juice 5-6 hours post-operation.

Bacic Preparation

FACE
  • Remove any face makeup and ensure cleanliness
  • Avoid accessories (jewels)
