  • definitely considering getting it done I’m still gonna try and do it naturally first cause at the moment its stubborn but it might let it go at some point but if not then I’ll have to resort to surgery but if i do have have liposuction is there any pain during or after the procedure and if so how severe?

  • Im.getting wisfom.teeth surgery and.im.nervous and.this video helped me.and im 32 with a learning.disability and im mentaly.slow. T_T

  • Awwn, this is so cute
    im 21 having a surgery for the first time and i stumbled up on this ��
    im still nervous tho, i cant imagine for kids

  • I’m having surgery on my wrist. The one thing I’m absolutely horrified by is waking up in the middle of surgery and felling the pain.

  • Me watching this even though I’m 18 lmao I’m going under soon (I’ve done it before but it doesn’t make it any less anxiety provoking) ��

  • I’m having foot surgery today and I was REALLY nervous because I never had it before. Now I realized that it doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would

  • I am 12 and I am getting a teeth surgery soon I am so scared because I have never been to the hospital before. This video barely helped.

  • Thanks this video was helpful. I was nervous about my wisdom teeth surgery Becuse I had to go in a operating room and it was scary to me Becuse I suffer from anixiety disorder and I have a learning disability and I’m special needs

  • I got so scared when I had my eye surgery that’s not the only surgery I had I did something disgusting because I was hungry I threw up���� who’s watching in 2020 thanks!

  • Surgery is not as bad or scary as it seems. I’ve had 5 surgeries before throughout my life. Idk why I’m watching this I’m 14 also ��

  • im having 3 surgeries this year and i don’t care at all. i mean it sucks but I’ve already had one of them and the worst part is the iv.

  • This helped my little 4 year old before Surgery soooooo much! He wasn’t near as anxious when things were happening because he already expected and knew that those things were gonna happen. ������❤️ Thank you for this video! It made this mamas life a lot easier.

  • Hi, I had 2 elective c-sections. During my 1st pregnancy, they found that one of my heart Valves wasn’t closing all the way, causing my body & heart to take on water. The heart doctor said is was common in pregnancy and still approved my elective surgery. After I felt odd when laying down flat and was told it was due to water in my heart. Next elective c-section, my heart was doing the same thing during the pregnancy, I was still approved for the elective surgery (they gave me a water pill this time for a few days before surgery & told the hospital they didn’t want me to get a lot of IV fluids). Then the day of surgery, my heart looked normal. They thought it had fixed itself. After surgery I felt the same feeling in my chest as I did with my 1st c-section. They checked my heart & found nothing. So they took an X-ray of my lungs & still nothing. They decided to check my lungs with another Machine & found water in them (they didn’t give me any medication for it just kept me in an upright position). My question is, I want lipo and a tummy tuck & have been cleared for surgery again, but am worried about fluid in my lungs/heart during surgery possibly killing me, because of the I’ve seen (in YouTube videos of people getting lipo) doctors put fluid into the Patient to help remove fat. Am I over reacting? Can the lipo fluid they inject into the fat travel to the lungs like an IV? Would you preform surgery on someone with my history?

  • so he uses the correct name for that finger thing but says the arm blood pressure cuff gives your arm a hug!?
    I am seriously being triggered right now

  • You seem like a very well-educated, trustworthy individual. I’ve recently been putting forth a lot of thought into plastic surgery and such. I’d like to ask you a few questions if possible and perhaps I could arrange a consultation in the near future. However, I’m only 15. But I’ll be 18 in less than a few years. Only a short while. But I think it’s worth the wait. Plastic surgery is most likely something I would like to invest in. Thank you. Lovely advice as always Doctor.

  • I remember when I used to be at Nemours unfortunately they can’t treat me anymore because of exactly how complicated my medical needs are

  • Good video! I agree with starting with one thing and working on that before you conquer another thing prior to surgery. That’s what I did and I attribute that to a lot of my success so far. I stopped drinking soda a year prior to surgery and then did the whole foods thing about six months prior to surgery. And it made everything so much easier later. You are looking fabulous by the way! Keep up the good work!

  • My advice would be give yourself a week to go back to work. Even a slow jobsitting at a desk… still hurts… it took me about 3 weeks to even tie my own shoes

  • I was thinking about this. But it makes me scare. I have 4 children, and my stomach growed so big that I feel horrible. I only want my abdominal fat go away. How much is this? And is safe?

  • Congrats Drew!!! You completely nailed the whole WLS experience and lifestyle. I had it done in 2005 at the age of 45 and it has been wonderful. Still only a tool but helps me with the whole self control thing. The only thing I would add is that for me, even though I was very prepared, I did have a couple weeks of, for lack of a better word, mourning for food. It was odd and unexpected, almost like,detoxing I guess. Anyway, congratulations again on your WL and thank you for articulating this info to people considering the surgery!!!

  • Can get liposuction before pregnancy planing am loose my fat I was planning to do liposuction is this right decision. After lipo can we get pregnancy?

  • Getting surgery soon and I don’t know if I’m going to have to be in the hospital for a few days or just go home after the surgery can you make another video that answers this question or no also what if I get a needle for anesthesia

  • This guy forgets to tell you that plastic surgery is not aesthetic nor cosmetic surgery. Plastic surgery training focuses on reconstruction after trauma or cancer. Resident like himself came out of training with no experience in aesthetic nor cosmetic surgery. Think about it, who wants a resident in training to do your cosmetic procedures…nobody so they have no exposure and will have to learn on the job or take some aesthetic or cosmetic courses after they graduate. Board certified in Plastic Surgery means certified in reconstruction after trauma or cancer. If you want a cosmetic procedure done, look for a surgeon certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery….make sense! This guys looks and sounds like a car salesman.

  • i had surgery last week for my spine i had a cyst and om 13 i wish i had watched this video first

    i was scared i wasnt gonna wake up

  • Shouldn’t a patient also be informed of what position they will be in and that in surgery they almost always totally expose you to everyone in the room even if surgery not on genitalia AREAS? Should we as patients be able to have a question on our consent forms asking if we prefer same gender extended staff for surgeries such as prostate, TURP, breast or hysterectomies. Women do have an easier time getting their wishes accommodated but, the medical institution needs to start accommodating men. Also, we as patients should be able to say no catheter and demand to wear a clean pair of briefs or a depend. Women should be able to wear a clean sport bra. This way they are not exposed completely to others.
