3. Pre-Operation Preparation:
Information on how to prepare for surgery should be included. This may encompass dietary restrictions, medications to avoid, and recommended pre-surgery health checks.

Instructions for post-operation care, including wound care, pain management, activity restrictions, and signs of complications should be listed clearly. Also include information on follow-up appointments and suture removal if applicable.
5. Expected Results and Recovery Timeline:
Provide a general timeline for recovery and expected results for each procedure. Highlight the importance of individual differences in healing and results
6. Photos and Testimonials:

A frequently asked questions section can cover common patient concerns and queries. This might include questions about anaesthesia, hospital stay, return to daily activities, cost, insurance coverage, etc.

The portal should also contain links or references to recent research or articles relevant to plastic surgery procedures. This adds to the credibility and educates the patients about the ongoing advancements in the field.

Plastic surgery can have psychological impacts on patients. Having a section dedicated to mental health support, therapy options, and the potential emotional impacts of surgery is key. The aim of this online portal should be to create an atmosphere of transparency and trust with your patients, by providing all the necessary and relevant information. It’s also crucial that the content is understandable to those without a medical background.
