What Will Be Done To Make My Back Incision Safe After Surgery
What kind of follow-up care will i need after butt augmentation surgery? Will i need massage and ultrasound after my butt augmentation. Is this common follow-up care? What other things will be suggested that I do after my surgery?
I : I perform butt augmentation with fat transfer techniques, ie brazilian butt lift. I don't usually recommend massage unless you notice an area of firmness. Massage may help in the areas that fat was harvested from to help reduce the swelling, but this is not necessary. If possible it is better if you can sleep on your stomach and avoid sleeping on your back. Avoid slouching and sliding down in your chair when sitting. Otherwise the recovery is not too bad. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had septoplasty surgery a week ago and the incision seems to be open. Will the scar tissue fill it in or do I need to go back and stitch it back up. ?
1 to 3 months: Your surgeon can guide you in your specific situation, but generally you need to let the soft tissues (disk, muscle, ligaments, skin) heal. That takes several months.

After scheduled surgery to remove gallbladder laparoscopically will i know i was intubated? What will recovery be like?
Laparoscopic : Surgery usually requires general endotracheal anesthsia. You will not have any memory of the intubation itself, because the anesthesiologist will give you IV medicine that prevents recalling the event. Barring any complications or unusual findings at surgery, you should be able to go home same or next day and resume normal activity in one week. Ask your surgeon for specific details. ...Read more

Have a lrg seroma after hernia surgery may need to be asperated will i be put to sleep or just numbed up and is it painfull to do ?
Not painful: Aspirating a seroma is generally done in an outpatient setting, usually not even requiring numbing medicine (since the pain of a needle stick for aspiration is the same as for the numbing medicine, but depends on how big the seroma and location). In any case, the seroma may require multiple aspirations until it eventually goes away. Without aspiration, this may take months to resolve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Within 24 hours, a sutured incision will have one layer of epidermal cells already. It will probably take up to 2-3 weeks at the most. When are the stitches due to come out, or was another method of closure used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

However, if you are having knee replacement surgery, longer acting local anesthetics or continuous infusions may be used, in which case it may take much longer.
