COVID-19 and Cosmetic Surgery

Doctor educating patients about breast implant illness

Is it safe to have a breast augmentation during this time?

Governor Greg Abbott has loosened restrictions and allowed for the return of elective surgery in the state of Texas due to actions that resulted in increased hospital bed availability, increased supply of personal protective equipment (PPE), and enhanced supply chains for vital medical resources to address COVID-19.

In light of this update, our facilities have begun rescheduling surgeries that were previously postponed in line with COVID-19 precautions, as well as setting up new consultations and surgeries.

It is important to take into account COVID-19 statistics in your region. Texas only makes up .001% of COVID-19 cases in the country, with Austin and Round Rock decreasing in percentage. Understanding the prevalence of COVID-19 in your community can aid in your decision to continue with a breast augmentation.

Furthermore, Synergy Plastic Surgery has implemented all necessary protocols and precautions to ensure the upmost safety and wellness of our patients and staff.

Set up an appointment today with one of our surgeons for a personalized consultation.

What else should I consider before surgery and what steps is Synergy taking to keep me safe?

As a medical facility, Synergy Plastic Surgery has and will always maintain proper and efficient protocols at all times. We have updated and are enforcing new office protocols in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes requiring that all patients wear a mask or facial covering while in our facility. In order to ensure the safety of our patients and staff, screening questions and temperature checks will be performed upon arrival, and hand sanitizer must be utilized upon entry.

As a prospective candidate for surgery, consider the availability of testing for COVID-19. Along with all necessary preoperative measures, Synergy Plastic Surgery ensures proper testing for the virus prior to surgery. Our facilities carry personal protective equipment (PPE) and have adequate staffing to support and employ our new protocols and routines in order to ensure maximum safety.

What are steps I can take to heal efficiently from a breast augmentation?

After surgery, consider a 7-day social isolation period to reduce incidence of a new exposure and infection as feasible, excluding needed post-op visits. As previously stated, Synergy Plastic Surgery ensures safe protocols and practices within our facility to protect our patients and staff during this time.

Many patients are taking advantage of this time to effectively quarantine, as well as heal safely from surgery at home!
