Choosing Alternative Pain Relief after Breast Enlargement Surgery

Plastic surgery has become ever more popular in the past few years, this is mainly due to the pressure put on us by the media to look good. With celebrities appearing on the front made up to the nines and looking ever more perfect, the desire to live up to the pressures of society has become ever more demanding. The majority of stars on the front of magazines today have had surgery such as breast enlargement (Brustvergrösserung) and facelifts (Facelifts), and those who haven’t had obvious surgery have usually had tummy tucks and lifts to certain parts of their body to appear the part to the public.

Getting surgery right is a must in this day and age, so having a surgeon who comes well recommended is evermore important. Most private hospitals have open days so you can find out more about the kind of surgery you want. If you decide to go ahead with the surgery, it is always necessary to have an initial consultation with a Consultant Plastic Surgeon. In this consultation the doctor will list options which are available to you, along with a recommendation of what surgery they feel would benefit you best.

Prior to surgery you will be given a once over by a Consultant to check that you are fit and well to go ahead with the operation. With all operations you are given a pre-operative health check, this usually includes blood pressure, full blood count and if necessary a chest x-ray to check that you are fully fit to undergo the operation.

After surgery has taken place, you will be kept in hospital for a number of days. With any surgery you can expect to experience a certain amount of pain and discomfort to the body. Nursing staff are on hand to dish out pain killers and help ease discomfort to the best of their ability. On leaving hospital many patients choose to deal with the pain through alternative medicines such as aromatherapy or holistic therapy.
