Cosmetic surgery, also referred to as aesthetic surgery, is a surgical procedure which endeavours to improve the physical aspects of one’s appearance to become more aesthetically pleasing.
One particular area where hypnosis has been shown to be extremely effective is before and after surgery. Hypnosis can help to relieve the intense anxiety that often strikes before undergoing a surgical procedure as well as help control pain and speed recovery after surgery.
When used before surgery, the benefits of hypnosis go beyond just allowing a patient to remain calm and reducing stress. That nervous, anxious feeling that accompanies most people into the operating room has been linked to patients experiencing more pain, a greater need for painkillers, and longer stays in the hospital after surgery. It has been proven that preoperative anxiety can have big effects on postoperative recovery.
After your surgery, hypnosis will allow you to maintain a calm and relaxed state of mind that is conducive to faster and more complete healing. The well documented benefits of undergoing hypnosis before and after surgery can make a tremendous difference.
