Before any surgery, at Royal Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Tamimi will review the type of anesthetic to be used, as well as the way you're likely to feel during and after the operation. This is the time to discuss any concerns you may have about any facet of the operation. Usually, patients describe their feelings during surgery as comfortable and surprisingly pleasant. After surgery, you may be prescribed a medication to make you as comfortable as possible when you get home.
The "sleep" you experience under general anesthesia is different from regular sleep. The anesthetized brain doesn't respond to pain signals or surgical manipulations.
Dr. Tamimi ensures the comfort and safety of every patient and has successfully performed hundreds of complex facial surgeries, he is compassionate about treating his patients and welcomes you to schedule a consultation (973) 404-7779.
