Diagnosis for Plastic Surgery
On the first visit to the Plastic Surgery Program, patients have a consultation with a plastic surgeon, who discusses the patient’s concerns, performs a complete medical history, and conducts a physical examination. Following this evaluation, the physician determines whether plastic surgery can be utilized to treat the problem.
If the condition is treatable with plastic surgery, the physician and patient discuss the potential treatment, its benefits, and possible complications. The Plastic Surgery Program is committed to thorough discussions to assist the patient in making an informed decision, with expectations that correspond to what can actually be delivered by the surgery. Almost all potential plastic surgeries require multiple visits to the plastic surgeon prior to the operation.
Treatment with Plastic Surgery
Surgery is scheduled and performed at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi itself. In the majority of cases, plastic surgery patients can go home the same day, but patients undergoing more extensive procedures may be admitted to stay overnight at the hospital for a short period.
After surgery, patients are required to attend follow-up appointments with the plastic surgeon. The length of follow-up depends on the healing and specific treatment.
The Plastic Surgery Program at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s Surgical Subspecialties Institute is staffed by a highly experienced team of caregivers.
