when your surgery time is scheduled, following instructions mentioned as pre-operative steps enter the hospital one hour before scheduled time. Register for your surgery at reception desk in the hospital or clinic and you’ll be given directions to the ward and you wear hospital gown. Don’t forget you mustn’t eat or drink any food or fluid during this time. When it is your turn, you’ll be summoned to the operating theatre and you’ll be accompanied by a ward nurse toward there. You’ll be greeted by operating room nurses and then transmitted to Dr. Gharooni’s operating room. An anesthesiologist then meets you explaining anesthesia stages. A small-bore needle-shaped tube (Less than one millimeter in diameter) attaches to your body through the vein in the back of the hand or in the inner elbow. This vein is the way through which anesthetic enters your body. It is the only injection into your body. Anesthesia monitors attach to your body shortly thereafter, so you are entirely monitored for blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen level by high-tech equipments. You lose your consciousness in less than 30 seconds. Afterward a breathing tube responsible for letting the air flow lung during the surgery is inserted into the windpipe through the mouth. A surgeon’s assistant sterilizes your face and nose using such chemical elements as iodine and then the rhinoplasty begins by your surgeon. It takes one hour to start from the moment you get in the operating suit. And it takes 1-2.5 hours to be performed. You’re permanently monitored by anesthesia systems. Handling the situation, anesthesiologist gradually cuts anesthetic off following the end of surgery and you regain consciousness. Breathing tube is taken out after full consciousness and you’ll be transmitted to the recovery room. Your condition is monitored there for an hour and you’re sent to the ward afterward.
It should be noted that it is a 3to4-hour period of time from your entrance to the operating theatre until returning to the ward from which 2 hours is spent for surgery and the rest for preoperative and postoperative actions in the operative room. Those who accompany the patient have to remember this point to avoid mistakenly worrying about a potentially adverse incident.
You rest in the ward for about 6 hours after rhinoplasty so that anesthetic effects are relived and you’ve regained full consciousness. The hospital discharges you and you’re not in need of an overnight stay in the hospital.
