The Surgical Journey FAQ’s

Explained by Dr. Madnani and Nurse Lisa

Hey, guys. I’m very happy to introduce you to our head operating room nurse, Lisa Calhoun here. Hello. many of you who know me and my practice have met or interacted with Lisa in some way or the other, Lisa’s primary responsibilities is to manage everything that happens in the operating room and to manage all of the pre-surgical and post surgical care of our patients.  Now, what does that mean? That means we have a team of nurses that help me with my surgical patients, and we have a team of operating room personnel and aftercare clinical personnel, which includes physician assistant and surgical technicians. So there’s a there’s a big team behind the scenes that helps me do what I do in the practice.

And even now we have Dr. Singh, and other doctors to be coming on board. So there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes.  We get a lot of questions about after care, before care, so we will be reviewing this.  We have Mallory behind the camera over there, our PA Mallory who’s our surgical PA and helps me manage all of my clinical, surgical patients, and she’ll be asking some frequently asked questions, and Lisa will be answering them.



What are the different types of anesthesia offered in your practice?

I’m going to start by saying that there are in general, three types of anesthesia offered for Facelift surgery:

One is general anesthesia, which is most commonly performed by most surgeons in the country. Then there’s IV sedation, which is also considered twilight, and then there’s oral sedation with  local anesthesia. In my practice, we mostly do oral sedation with local anesthesia or IV sedation, at least I’m gonna go over some of those two the nuances between the two. We do about ninety percent of our surgeries under oral sedation with local anesthesia (also known as our “awake Facelift”). So there’s a combination of medications that will be sent to the pharmacy. And what that means is the patient will get some oral Valium, which will help relax them during the procedure. They will also get some type of pain medication, which will help keep them pretty pain free during the surgery. We’ll also get an antibiotic and an anti-nausea medication. So that’s the oral sedation local anesthesia.

IV sedation is performed with an anesthesiologist, they are present throughout the procedure. And the patient will get an IV and will be administered propofol to keep them very comfortable during the surgery. So that’s primarily also known as twilight. So those of you that have had a colonoscopy before that’s what the IV sedation is.

General anesthesia is performed by an anesthesiologist where the patient is asleep and has a complete loss of consciousness.

The choice is completely up to the patient.

And so the patients who are asleep throughout the whole case?

Yes. Exactly. And we do have an anesthesiologist present. Yes. And the difference between that in terms of the patients prep before surgeries, they require a medical clearance. So all patients getting IV submissions will require a medical clearance even if you’re healthy, and if you are healthy and you’re having it under local with oral sedation, no medical clearance is typically needed.


Are there any medications that I need to take before surgery?

So generally speaking, no. We want you to pick up all the medications patients from your pharmacy that we send to you and bring them with us. There, it it will depend on the procedures that you’re scheduled for whether you start the medications before or not. And your nurse during your pre op appointment will review that with you.


What should I wear the day of surgery?

So, day of surgery, what we would like you to wear head to toe would be no makeup on your face. So no harsh chemicals, no heavy lotions, anything like that. A bra with no underwire, so make sure that you don’t have any metal on your body that includes any jewel where your valuables leave those at home. A tank top of some sort. would be preferred and comfortable sweatpants or shorts are are preferred for day of surgery. Also, slip on shoes are generally better.


Do I need someone to stay with me overnight?

It is recommended that we have that you have somebody to stay overnight for the first twenty four hours post-operatively. That does include someone to physically come and pick you up from our facility. An Uber driver or cab does not count as a responsible adult does have to pick you up.


If I’m getting a facelift, when is my post operative appointments?

You’ll be seen in our office by one of our nurses or PA’s (Physician Assistants) the next day, so that’s twenty four hours after your surgery. You’ll come in for a post operative wrap change. During that appointment, we welcome your significant other or caregiver to come in and witness that appointment. They will will show you and your caregiver how to clean the incisions how to do the post operative dressing change during that appointment. And then there’s a one week follow-up appointment after facelifts for the sutures to come out and then typically a two week (follow- up) appointment. In terms of when you get to see me after surgery, I try to see all my patients, but I’m usually in the operating room. I will see you within the first couple weeks after surgery.  Obviously, if there’s any kind of complication or issues, we’ll be right there with you.


If I’m not having a facelift, if I’m having eyelid surgery or liposuction or a different type of procedure that your office offers, When are my follow-up appointments?

The next follow-up would be one a week following surgery. And if there’s any issues or concerns, we can definitely see you sooner than that. a physician assistant or nurse will be following up with you every day up until your one week follow-up. Our office is in touch with you regularly after surgery, and you can also be in touch with our office. We have an online system, a messaging system where you can send pictures and text us, it’s called Klara. So you’ll be getting that information at the time of your pre op appointment and after search.


What do I do if I have a concern pre or post op?

So we have an online messaging service that you can communicate right after your pre op appointment up until even after your surgery that you that it monitored by a physician assistant and nurses all day every day. From that during this normal business hours, nine AM to five PM, Monday through Friday, and the occasional Saturdays we are open. After your surgery, if you have a postoperative concern, you will have the operating physician’s cell phone number to contact in case of emergency or any urgent concerns.


What should I eat before surgery?

So if you’re going under oral sedation with local anesthesia, we do recommend that you have a light meal before arriving. Please do avoid caffeine though. If you do go under IV sedation, we recommend that you not eat or drink anything after ten PM thing.

Why Fall is the Best Time for Your Procedure

Why Fall is the Best Time for Your Procedure

Fall has officially arrived, have you booked your plastic surgery yet? There are a number of reasons to go under the knife this time of year. With many benefits to be gained, make this fall the season when you finally reach those aesthetic goals you have been putting off. We have five good reasons why fall is the best time to schedule your plastic surgery.

More Time Off

Many people find that fall is a relatively easy time to take off from work, after the rush of summer vacations and before the bustle of the holiday season. Many businesses actually slow down by the holidays, making time off more available to employees. Since some plastic surgery procedures require 1-3 weeks of recovery time, the ability to take sufficient time off to heal ensures your procedure is both as safe and successful as possible.

Good Time for a Staycation

When you book a plastic surgery procedure during the summer months, it can be difficult to take time away from all the outdoor activities. When the temperatures cool off in the fall, spending those days indoors recuperating can be a lot more inviting. This is a pleasant time of year to curl up in front of the fire with a book or binge watch your favorite television show under your favorite afghan.

Easier to Hide the Healing

Plastic surgery involves incisions, bandages and healing time, which can all be a dead giveaway you had a cosmetic procedure. When the temperatures cool down and the jeans and sweaters come out, it is much easier to conceal those telltale signs under cool weather clothing. You can even grab a scarf, hat or gloves to hide incisions, swelling and bruising during the recovery process.

Get (or Give) the Gift of Beauty

Plastic surgery can be pricey and insurance does not typically cover procedures done strictly for cosmetic reasons. If you plan your procedure near the holidays, you might be able to get that special someone to give you at least a portion of the procedure as a gift. Keep in mind this is also a good time of year to offer the gift of plastic surgery to someone you care about that you know has specific aesthetic goals they would like to meet. Most plastic surgeons provide the ability to purchase gift certificates that can be used by a recipient.

Greet the New Year in Style

Depending on the specific procedure you decide to undergo, you can be completely healed up within a matter of weeks. This means that if you schedule your procedure now, you may be ready to flaunt your new look in time for New Year’s Eve. Even if you book a bit later in the season, you can rest assured you will be recovered in time for your spring break adventure.

Fall is an opportune time for plastic surgery for a number of reasons. Dr. Madnani offers a variety of procedures at his Manhattan office, giving his New York City patients options to help them reach all of their aesthetic goals.

What is the Proper Age to Begin Anti-Aging Treatments?

What is the Proper Age to Begin Anti-Aging Treatments?

Plastic surgery has traditionally been linked to advancing age, as patients have primarily used these procedures to restore a youthful appearance. However, today’s cosmetic procedures, including those dubbed “anti-aging” treatments are used at increasingly younger ages as those patients are beginning to tune into the benefits of these procedures as well. Dr. Madnani has a few basic guidelines on the best time to begin some of these popular treatments.

The Aging Process

It can be difficult to set an age in stone as to when to begin your anti-aging regimen. This is because the skin ages at very different rates, depending on a variety of factors. Some of those factors might include:

  • Genetics
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Diet and exercise
  • Stress
  • Sun exposure
  • Excessive facial expressions
  • Smoke and other pollutants

For some men and women, the aging process may begin quite early, so they will see visible signs by the time they celebrate their 30th birthday. Others may not become bothered by lines and facial laxity until their 40s or even later. The best gauge for when to start anti-aging treatments is the condition of your skin, not the candles on your birthday cake.

Age for Most Treatments

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 40 percent of all cosmetic procedures performed in 2015 were on patients between the ages of 35 and 50. Another 30 percent of all patients fell between the ages of 51 and 64. Liposuction was the most popular procedure in both of these age groups. Facial procedures included eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty. Non-surgical treatments are also popular among these age groups, particularly injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers.

Treatments in the 30s

Signs of aging may begin to appear in the 30s, but they are usually fairly subtle and do not require the most invasive treatments to produce the best results. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons lists the following cosmetic procedures as the most performed among this group in 2015:

  • Rhinoplasty
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Botox injections
  • Dermal fillers
  • Microdermabrasion

Treatments in the 40s

By the time most people hit their 40s, the signs of aging are probably a bit more prevalent. Surgical procedures are required more frequently at this point to achieve full desired results. Popular procedures for this age group include:

  • Eyelid surgery
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Facelift
  • Botox and dermal fillers
  • Chemical peels

Treatments in the 50s and Beyond

By the time patients hit 55, aging symptoms have usually become more pronounced. The menu of cosmetic treatments is shifting more to surgical procedures, although some non-surgical treatments can still produce positive results for some patients. The most common treatments for this age group include:

  • Eyelid surgery
  • Facelift
  • Forehead lift
  • Botox and dermal fillers
  • Chemical peels

Versatile Treatments Appeal to All Ages

While treatments like Botox and dermal fillers are typically recognized for their anti-aging benefits, they can also be used to effectively enhance facial contours and features without surgery. For this reasons, patients as young as their 20s may pursue these treatments to correct a gummy smile, augment the lips or correct a host of asymmetries.
