To prepare for your Breast Augmentation surgery at the SixSurgery, please read the following instructions. It is also important that you familiarize yourself with the various aspects of the recovery phase after your surgery and ensure that there is someone who can stay with you for the first 24 hours.
If you need clarification on any of the following instructions, or you have a question that is not answered by the information below, please contact us and one of our staff will be ready to help you.
On the day of your procedure, you will arrive 2 hours before the scheduled time of surgery. The exact time of your surgery will be determined a week prior; although we roughly know the schedule for that day weeks ahead of time, we sometimes have to re-arrange the schedule to accommodate the needs of different patients or staffing of the Operating Room.
Patients with type 2 diabetes, for example, are operated on first to allow for better blood sugar control. (please note we do not accept type1 diabetics) Regardless of when your surgery is tentatively scheduled for, plan on taking the entire day off. If, for example, your surgery is scheduled in the afternoon, do not attempt to do anything in the morning, just try to relax.
Since Breast Augmentation is an outpatient surgical procedure, following your surgery you will be released to either go home or to recover in one of our luxurious hotel rooms in the Fairmont Royal York Hotel (at an additional charge). Whether you go home or stay in the hotel, you will need to have a capable adult stay with you for the first 24 hours. You cannot be left alone during the first night after your surgery, and more importantly, you should not be walking without assistance during the first 24 hours.
During this time, you may be prone to fainting, falling, and hurting yourself. In the event that you wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, you must also wake up your companion. You are not allowed to go to the bathroom by yourself during the first night after your surgery.
If you are unable to find anyone that can stay with you, we are able to provide you with a Personal Support Worker who will make sure you are safe and comfortable. There is an additional fee for this service.
