At PRMA Plastic Surgery, we are committed to providing the best possible care for our patients. That’s why we have adopted the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) approach to perioperative care. ERAS is an evidence-based protocol that aims to improve surgical outcomes and reduce complications.

 

What is ERAS?

ERAS is a comprehensive, multimodal approach to perioperative care that emphasizes patient education and preparation, optimized pain control and nutrition optimization. ERAS protocols have been developed over the past decade and have been shown to reduce postoperative complications, shorten hospital stays, and improve patient satisfaction.

 

How does ERAS work?

ERAS protocols are composed of several components that cover the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative periods. These components include patient education and counseling, smoking cessation, carbohydrate loading, optimized pain control, minimally invasive surgery, short-acting anesthesia, goal-directed fluid therapy, nausea and vomiting prophylaxis, thromboprophylaxis, early mobilization, multimodal pain management, early oral feeding, avoidance of nasogastric tubes, early removal of urinary catheters, and early removal of drains.

 

Why is ERAS the future of perioperative care?

ERAS protocols have been shown to reduce postoperative complications, such as infections, nausea and vomiting, and ileus. They also lead to shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, and lower healthcare costs. Patients who follow ERAS protocols report less pain, improved quality of life, and higher satisfaction with their care. At PRMA Plastic Surgery, we believe that ERAS is the future of perioperative care because it enables us to provide our patients with the best possible care and outcomes.

ERAS protocols have been shown to reduce postoperative complications, shorten hospital stays, and improve patient satisfaction. At PRMA Plastic Surgery, we are proud to have adopted the ERAS approach to perioperative care, and we believe that it is the future of plastic surgery care.

“Set realistic, attainable goals after your surgery. Your body is going to feel different now than it did before surgery. If you are doing it simply to lose weight or get back into a certain dress or pant size you may be setting yourself up for failure. Reset your compass.”
