With any surgical procedure, the operation is only the first step. This is followed by the healing process, at which time the patient and doctor must work as a team. If the post-operative instructions are not followed properly, the final out come can be very disappointing to both the patient and doctor.
Proper surgical techniques and meticulous post-operative care greatly improve the odds for an excellent outcome, but they do not totally eliminate an unexpected outcome. A mistake that is often made by patients is early discontinuation of the post-surgery care instructions because they see pleasing results or because they think the healing process is completed.
Follow the post-operative instructions closely, and if you have any question about your care, contact your doctor immediately.
