Please also review the specific goals of each surgery outlined in those descriptions, and keep in mind the important addition of one more and arguably the most significant goal of these surgeries – to energize your look and enhance a more youthful self-image.
Before your procedure, Dr. Markarian and his aesthetic team will meet with you to answer any questions you may have and make sure you understand your procedure and recovery thoroughly. Safety, respect, privacy, comfort, and excellence in treatment with trusting compassionate care is the hallmark of Dr. Markarian’s patient experience.
Before coming into the surgery center or hospital, you will need to begin fasting 8 hours prior to your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Markarian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.
Most surgeries are typically performed under general anesthesia unless indicated otherwise below. With some surgeries, such as tummy tucks and body lifts, expect an overnight stay at a fully accredited surgical center where a “private duty” nurse is available, or at a hospital with full support staff. After almost all surgeries, we expect you to leave in the company of a reliable family member or friend, before you return to your home, or conveniently located aftercare facility or hotel.
2-3 weeks after all surgeries, Dr. Markarian will offer a complementary laser scar reduction treatment procedure to optimize the outcome of your surgical scars.
