The Most Important Part of Surgery: Pre-Operative Planning

One of the key steps in a successful surgical procedure is what is done in preparation for surgery. How you prepare for a surgical operation determines the eventual outcome; if you do little to prepare, your results can only go so far, whereas if you are thorough in your preparation, your results will be meticulous, natural, and exactly what your patient expects the results to be.

Preparation requires a lot of measurement, visible markings, strong knowledge and understanding of anatomy, and meticulousness, or even perfectionism. This preparation is not only used for pre-operative planning, but also for all injectable procedures such as lip augmentations, non-surgical rhinoplasties, facial injectables, etc.  

Below are some examples of some of the pre-surgical planning that Dr. Devgan performs on her patients to ensure symmetrical results:
