A plastic surgery face mask is generally designed for use by plastic surgeons during surgical procedures. These masks are made from a flexible material and are used to protect the face from the impact of operating machinery or anesthetics. Plastic surgery face masks may also be used in conjunction with a disposable nose piece that can be used to create a more natural appearance, reducing the risk of the nasal bridge becoming apparent during surgery.
The mask must be comfortable for the wearer, since it will be required to remain on for an extended period of time. The wearer must ensure that the mask fits properly and does not restrict movement of the face. This can be achieved by wearing the mask for the recommended time duration as prescribed by the plastic surgeon.
There are two different materials used in the manufacture of these masks: silicone and neoprene. Both of these materials are commonly used for aesthetic purposes, and their manufacture is done to keep them resistant to impact and water. However, it is important to note that silicone is a poor choice of mask material because it does not provide the degree of protection needed for cosmetic operations. In addition, neoprene is generally less expensive than silicone and is more flexible.
When using a face mask during a facial surgery procedure, the surgeon will typically remove the excess saline from the face prior to the operation. The surgeon will then prepare his hands prior to performing the procedure and will put on latex gloves. During the procedure, the surgeon will place one or two gauze pads beneath the patient’s nose. These gauze pads are designed to act as a barrier between the patient’s skin and the mask’s face shield. During the procedure, the patient must remain still, avoiding making sudden movements.
After the face mask is on, the surgeon will place the nose piece under the nose and gently lift up the bridge. The nose piece is then pulled back down under the bridge and the plastic surgeon will repeat this process with the chin, nose and chin. This will allow him to expose the area underneath the mask.
When it comes to cleaning the face mask after the procedure, it is important to ensure that it is clean enough to remove all of the debris that was present when it was placed. Some doctors prefer to use warm water to clean their face masks and remove any residual dirt that may have accumulated. before placing it on a patient for the remainder of the surgical procedure.
