Successful ptosis surgery is dictated by the following factors:
(1) The kind of surgery
(2) Whether other surgeries are performed alongside it
(3) The kind of anesthesia used
(4) The surgical team
(5) The surgical technique used
(6) The post-operative care
Dr. Amiya Prasad has worked out a sedation method that is specifically for his practice. This method, called LITE™ IV sedation, lets patients recover from surgery without the heavy, groggy feeling associated with general anesthesia. It has been shown that this sedation method also decreases the post-surgery downtime period.
To keep surgical procedures running efficiently, Dr. Prasad operates in his own Joint Commission-accredited operating facilities with a regular team of highly adept professionals. Working in this kind of setting makes everything immensely convenient for both the surgical team and patient, because they are able to give patients the speedy care they need. This has been proven to ultimately lead to an improved recovery experience for patients, and they are usually able to work again after 5-7 days.
Dr. Prasad emphasizes that with any kind of surgery, technical know-how, experience, and an artistic eye are requisite. He also stresses that exposure to various cases is of immense value to a surgeon’s ability respond appropriately and to make more accurate decisions.
