Cosmetic procedure clearance is a medical evaluation needed before you undergo certain types of surgeries. Doing so ensures your safety by detecting or ruling out medical problems that can make surgery risky for your health. It’s not only required for many surgeries; it helps give you peace of mind.
Your surgeon lets you know if you require cosmetic procedure clearance. You often require this evaluation if you need a procedure requiring anesthesia, particularly general anesthesia. Minor procedures, such as cosmetic injections, may not require cosmetic procedure clearance.
During cosmetic procedure clearance appointments at Oasis Healthcare Service, Inc., friendly staff members welcome you and complete the following:
During a vital signs check, your specialist evaluates your weight, temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs to assess your general health.
Your provider reviews your medical history. They ask about family and personal history of disease, medications you take, and symptoms you have.
Your Oasis Healthcare Service provider completes a physical exam by evaluating your eyes, throat, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, abdomen, and more to assess your health and wellness.
During the diagnostic testing portion of cosmetic procedure clearance appointments, your provider may complete an electrocardiogram (EKG) to test your heart’s function, urine tests, nasal or throat swabs, blood tests, X-rays, or other imaging procedures to complete an in-depth analysis of possible medical problems.
After completing an evaluation and receiving results from your diagnostic tests, your provider reviews them with you. They can clear you for the cosmetic medical procedure if you’re in good health and the risk of experiencing a problem during your surgery is low.
If you have a medical problem requiring treatment, your provider might recommend you first make lifestyle changes, take medications, undergo further diagnostic testing, or see a specialist before you undergo surgery.
