The rate of success of ptosis surgery is determined by the following:
(1) The type of surgery
(2) If other surgeries are performed alongside it
(3) The type of anesthesia used
(4) The surgical team
(5) The surgical technique
(6) The post-operative recovery process
Dr. Amiya Prasad has developed his own sedation technique specifically for his practice. This technique—LITE™ IV sedation—allows patients to emerge from surgery feeling more refreshed than they normally would had they been given general anesthesia. This type of sedation technique also lessens the post-surgery downtime experience.
In order to keep surgical procedures running smoothly, Dr. Prasad chooses to work in his own Joint Commission-accredited operating facilities with a consistent and tight-knit team of highly proficient professionals. Working in such a set-up makes everything enormously convenient for both surgeon and patient, as they are able to give patients the immediate care they need, which ultimately leads to a better recovery experience for them. With this kind of attentive care, most people are able to work again after 5-7 days.
Dr. Prasad asserts that with any type of surgery, technical expertise, experience, and an artistic eye are indispensable. Mastery of these techniques and exposure to different cases contributes to a surgeon’s ability to make more accurate decisions and improves the way he responds to different scenarios.
