PRE-OP procedures and ANESTHESIA

Well before your surgery, you will have received a package of information from our office that is very important for the success of your procedure. Your proper following of these instructions is very important. Please take the time to go over these documents carefully, make sure you fully understand what we are asking you to do, and ensure there is no confusion over prescriptions, items to avoid, or any of our instructions for your procedure.

Here are the critical documents that were included in your packet. Please make sure you have each of these and fully understand the instructions well in advance of your procedure. Our staff will tailor these forms to each individual and review with the patients prior to surgery. If there are any questions, please give us a call at 843-571-4742.

  • Informed Consent Form- Our agreement that you understand the risks of the surgery and give Dr. Hochman and his staff permission to perform the surgery.  We will have discussed all these items in an office visit prior to your procedure.
  • Pre-Operative Instructions for Surgical Patients- Provides a list of prescription medications and recommended herbal supplements you have been asked to take before and after your surgery. It also provides additional guidelines you should follow before and after surgery.
  • Anesthesia -If applicable, before the surgery, you will meet your anesthesiologist and have an opportunity to ask questions. Your anesthesiologist may also wish to ask questions regarding your medical history. Following the surgery, your anesthesiologist will remain available until you are alert enough to meet the criteria for discharge from the “recovery room.” If you have any problems after leaving the office, call Dr. Hochman, and if he deems your problem to be anesthesia-related, he will contact the anesthesiologist. Dr. Hochman is always available to you. Call the Facial Surgery Center at 843-571-4742 at any time if you feel you need to. If it is after hours, call the same number for instructions.



Say goodbye to the waiting time.

  • "The things I appreciated most: I considered this for 5 years and discussed with Dr. Hochman on several occasions. I never felt any pressure or was subjected to any 'sales pitch'. It was always emphasized that it should be my decision and one with which I would be comfortable. The friendliness of the staff. Every single person I have met in the office has been exceedingly friendly. The emphasis on the availability of Dr. Hochman after the procedures. The timely and thorough communications." - WT
  • "Dr. Hochman, Kim, and the entire staff have saved my life. I've never had a doctor so genuinely interested in my health and wellbeing. My migraines rule my life, but because of Dr. Hochman's treatments, I am able to have a measure of freedom again. I cannot recommend him enough for migraine treatment. He is compassionate, caring, professional and, frankly, family at this point."
  • "Dr. Hochman and his staff have been caring for our daughter and treating her Port Wine Stains for over 10 years now! He is a world renowned Dr and in high demand, but the brat part is he LOVES our child and that makes him the best! We consider Dr Hochman and his staff one of our greatest blessing and thank God for them!"
  • "To be honest, I couldn’t have had a better experience. From start to finish, Dr Hochman and his wonderful staff took the BEST care of me. I had a VERY large basal cell area removed from the side of my nose and cheek. They referred me to a wonderful dermatologist who got me in right away. After the Mohs procedure, Dr Hochman did my repair three days later, right in his own office with a fabulous anesthesiologist and super nurse. And now, twelve weeks later, you can hardly tell anything was done. Beautiful job!" -
  • "We absolutely LOVE Dr. Hochman! Our 16 month old had a large hemangioma removed from his forehead and you can’t even tell it was ever there! He did such a great job there isn’t even a visible scar. He is honest, to the point and was beyond helpful after hours when we needed him. We are beyond happy we found him!" -Laurie
  • "Wish I had done my homework [searching for doctors]. Thanks to Dr. Hochman for fixing another’s [doctor’s] mistakes." -Terrie
  • "If every doctor and staff strives to be as caring and generous as you, the world would be filled with more smiles and laughter. You and your team took care of us as if we were the most important people on earth. We appreciate and value your outstanding expertise and care. Surgery, even elective, is scary. We would like to thank you for making this such an amazing experience." -MW & WB
