Is it necessary to have COVID-19 tested every time before surgery?

A lot of us are planning on cosmetic surgery during this time but there are still concerns about the coronavirus outbreak. You can relieve worry because today Nida Esth' Medical Center has great updates that will help many people to relax and make easier decisions. During this time, the questions that were brought in through the inbox of our medical center's main page, the most were questions "Before surgery, is it necessary to have Covid-19 test every time?" Actually, it is necessary for major surgery that requires hospitalization or procedures where the patient has to be recuperated in the hospital. For example

  • Breast Surgery
  • Abdominal surgery
  • Liposuction (multiple areas)
  • Face Lift Surgery

In these cases, patients are required to be tested for COVID-19 because it is a hospital policy that all patients who undergo any surgery performed by that hospital must take a Covid-19 test for the safety of medical personnel and patients themselves and not to have any complications after surgery.

But for minor surgery that patients can perform procedures at a medical center and there is no need to stay at the hospital, for example.•    Double eyelid surgery

  • Liposuction (a few areas)
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Botox injections
  • Lip surgery, etc.

Patients do not need to be tested for COVID-19 before the procedure. Instead, a detailed history will be conducted to assess whether patients are at risk for COVID-19 exposure.

Why we need the COVID-19 test before surgery?

All patients who are going to have major surgery at the hospital during this time must be tested for COVID-19 according to the government measures scheduled for surgery to make sure you are healthy and ready for the day of surgery including the readiness to recuperate as well. We also want to ensure that healthcare workers wear appropriate protective equipment to protect you and other patients.

Also, if a patient performs cosmetic surgery with Nida Esth ', we offer a package for a preliminary health examination along with a COVID-19 test before undergoing a surgical operation which means that patients will save quite a lot of expenses in this section with confidence in the safety measures that you will receive.
