Outpatient Surgery

In most cases, our operations are performed on an outpatient basis, which means that you will be able to go home and rest without having to stay in the hospital overnight. However, you may feel slightly dizzy after the surgery, so we advise you to bring a friend or a family member who can drive you home.

Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC)

Although some operations may be performed under local anesthesia alone, most patients appreciate the relaxation and pain control provided by Monitored Anesthesia Care or MAC. This is a very safe and effective method of anesthesia that is performed by an anesthesiologist during an outpatient surgical procedure. You will be administered intravenous sedation which will allow you to feel calm, followed by a local anesthetic to block the pain signals from the operative site. Some benefits of MAC include greater comfort, a faster recovery, and a low risk of nausea.


It is important to know what to expect after your operation. You will experience minimal pain the first day, although moderate discomfort is quite normal. Swelling around the eyes is also common and should slowly subside within the first postoperative week. Bruising may last longer and is harder to predict; some people bruise a lot, while others show almost no bruising at all. In most cases, you will be able to return to work one week after the operation but, if you live in a foreign country, we recommend that you stay for an extra two weeks.
