Minor plastic surgery really is performed under local anaesthetic, and for this reason you may want to get someone to take you home. If you get the operation done on your hand then you will not be able to use your hand for the time being. You can easily go to your hospital appointment on your own but it is not recommended that you walk a long distance home. For this reason, if you do plan to walk it is highly suggested that you do everything you can to try and get someone to either take you home or even to get someone who can be with you to make sure that you get home okay.
Is It Safe To Drive?
Of course, it is very easy for you to think that you are okay to drive home and in most cases you are. This is especially the case if you are having a procedure done on your face, your upper body or even your scalp. If you do have a procedure done on your lower body then you need to try and get someone to take you home because you will not be able to drive. This is especially the case if you have a very large incision or anything else of the sort so that is an additional thing that you need to think about. Be safe after plastic surgery!
Chances of Injury
If you are planning on driving home, you need to try and make sure that you do not injure yourself in any way. If you do happen to injure yourself then you will only put yourself at more risk and this can cause serious issues for you. You will need to make sure that you take care of the wound that you have and you also need to make sure that you are aware of the chances of an infection happening as the result of another trauma.
