Although this operation is a routine procedure for Dr Toncic’s experienced surgical team, a professional approach demands of us to dedicate special attention to the preoperative preparation of the patient.
Prior to the labioplasty, the patient goes through a routine preoperative analysis, which comprises of a blood test and a consultation in our clinic.
We have another talk with the patient and a final pre- operative consultation and examination prior to the operative procedure.
To reduce the risk of possible complications to a minimum, we don’t recommend labioplasty to older patients, diabetics, patients who have high blood pressure or heart conditions. It is advisable that the patient is of a younger or middle age and in good medical condition.
Before labioplasty, patients need to stop with the usage of pain killers and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, containing acetylsalicylic acid like Aspirin, Andol or Acisal, in case they usually take these. This is a very important factor in a patient’s preparation for surgical procedure, as this way we prevent possible bleeding and hematomas during and after the procedure.
Following this instruction makes the recovery quicker and more successful, and the result of the operation is improved.
