During Your Teleconsultation

Teleconsultation is a great tool to meet Dr. Velazco.  To be fully prepared, you will need a full list of questions. He will address all your needs and expectations. Furthermore, if you have any doubts, questions or concerns, they will also be discussed. The principal objective is to enhance your understanding about your cosmetic procedures. His principle goal is to build a trustworthy relationship with you since the very beginning.

One Day Before Surgery

One day before surgery, you will have your laboratory tests done, ekg and chest x-ray. Your general health condition will be evaluated with a complete blood cells count and coagulation times.  Your designated cardiologist will review your ekg. And you will have a pre-operatory consultation with Dr. Velazco. He will carefully review all your results, and talk to you about your procedures. So rest assured that you will be in the best of hands.

Your Surgery Day

Your designated anesthesiologist will walk you through the process of your anesthetic procedure.  So you will know exactly how it works.  After that once you are completely awake with you will be sent to your designated hospital room.   Usually you will stay one night at the hospital, and Dr. Velazco will be on call 24/7.  He will visit you every 3-4 hours to check on you, until you are discharged on the next day.

Your Recovery Period

You will be scheduled with 2-3 post operatory consultations with Dr. Velazco. He will carefully check your evolution.  All the bandages changes, the compression garments changes, the drainages removal, and the stitches removal will be perform by Dr. Rafael Velasco Marin. He is very caring about the post operatory recovery of his patients.  His policy is to keep a close eye on the recovery period to ensure a positive outcome.  You will definitely be in the best of hands.
