Preparing for Your Surgery and Accessing Financial Assistance

Pre-Op Procedures and Anesthesia

At The Facial Surgery Center, we want to ensure your surgical journey is smooth and successful. Prior to your procedure, you will receive a comprehensive package of essential information from our office. We kindly request that you take the time to read it thoroughly and familiarize yourself with our instructions. It is crucial to understand and follow these guidelines, including any prescriptions, items to avoid, and pre- and post-operative instructions specific to your procedure.

Inside the package, you will find several important documents tailored to your individual needs. Our dedicated team will go through these forms with you, addressing any questions or concerns you may have. We encourage you to reach out to us at (843) 571-4742 if you require further clarification.

The documents in your package include:

  • Informed Consent Form: This form acknowledges that you have discussed the risks and benefits of the surgery with Dr. Hochman and his staff. By signing it, you grant permission for the procedure to be performed.
  • Pre-Operative Instructions for Surgical Patients: This document provides detailed guidance on prescription medications, herbal supplements, and additional instructions you need to follow before and after your surgery. Adhering to these instructions is vital for the success of your procedure.
  • Anesthesia: Your safety and comfort are paramount to us. Prior to your surgery, you will have the opportunity to meet with your anesthesiologist and address any questions or concerns you may have. The anesthesiologist may also inquire about your medical history to ensure personalized care. During the surgery, your anesthesiologist will remain by your side until you are ready to leave the recovery room. Should you experience any issues after leaving the office, please contact Dr. Hochman. If the problem is related to the anesthesia, the anesthesiologist will be promptly informed. Dr. Hochman and our team are always available to assist you. If you require assistance after hours, please call the Facial Surgery Center at (843) 571-4742 for further instructions.
