Cosmetic surgery and Surgical Serenity Solutions. Are you thinking of having a little plastic surgery? It certainly is more popular than ever these days and can truly make a world of difference in how you look and feel. Plastic surgery used to be the domain of the rich and famous…movie stars, heiresses, and royalty. Today, the procedures that used to be prohibitively expensive, and required weeks and weeks of recovery time, can now be done as outpatient surgery, or even on your lunch hour!!
One of the reasons I became so interested in knowing more about plastic surgery was the immediate interest that plastic and cosmetic surgeons showed in the Surgical Serenity Solutions. The reason is (I surmise!) that when a person decides to pay for a procedure that is unlikely to be reimbursed by insurance or Medicare/Medicaid, it is obviously something that they really want. (Who doesn’t want to be more beautiful, shapely, or youthful looking?) And typically, the office of a plastic surgeon is beauty and luxury personified.
If you’re going to pay many thousands of dollars out of your own pocket for a procedure that promises to improve your appearance and your self-esteem, you want to be as comfortable and pampered as you can possibly be. Providing each patient with their own, personal, Surgical Serenity headphone, with the ideal slow, soothing music already programmed on them! In a clinical study, conducted at the Robley Rex Veterans Hospital in Louisville, KY, patients wearing the light-weight, cordless headphones, experienced 20% less pain, than those who did not wear our headphones.
Since that study, the famous British medical journal, The Lancet, published a meta-analysis of 4000 research studies world-wide on the benefits of music with surgery. In every study, music was highly recommended as a huge benefit to the patient in terms of anxiety reduction and pain reduction. In addition, patients who listen to soothing, slow and steady music through cordless headphones, not only engage the process of rhythmic entrainment, but headphones also block the surgeon’s music, which is often lively and upbeat. It also blocks conversations in the surgical area which the patient does not really want to hear.
Cosmetic surgeons and luxury esthetic surgery spas want to make their patients’ experience as painless and enjoyable as possible. This is definitely one way to provide that patient experience, that patients want and deserve.
