An aesthetic face mask, also called an aesthetic surgical face mask, is designed to be worn on patients by cosmetic surgeons during cosmetic surgery procedures. The surgical mask is used to prevent infections in the patient and treating staff by capturing airborne bacteria and droppings from the patient’s mouth and eyes. There are several different types of aesthetic face masks:
A disposable facial mask is an important part of the cosmetic surgery setting. This is most commonly used during the first phase of the surgery where a patient is awake and alert. The disposable facial mask allows the surgeon to sterilize the patient before removing any surgical material. These types of masks include disposable nasal masks, disposable facial face masks, and disposable nasal sprays.
Surgical face masks can be designed for many different procedures such as eyelid surgery, brow lift surgery, and chin augmentation. These types of surgical masks are typically made of an elastic bandage material which is placed around the patient’s eyes. The bandages can be removed after surgery or after the doctor is finished with the procedure and has removed the bandages. They are most commonly used in conjunction with a sterile saline solution and a sterile nasal irrigation device.
Surgical masks also have other uses that are not related to the surgery itself. One use of surgical face masks is for aesthetic purposes. Some patients wear these types of masks to improve their appearance after cosmetic surgery. Patients with red-raw or dry skin may wear these masks for extra moisture and added comfort. The materials used in these masks include polyester and silicone gel, which make the material comfortable to wear and prevent irritations from the saline solution. Another use is to make the eyes appear larger after surgery. These masks are also worn by patients who are having cataract removal.
There are different styles of a face mask that is worn in various stages of the surgery. In the initial stage of surgery, the patient is usually awake and alert. The surgeon removes a disposable nasal spray or sterile saline solution and places it in the nose of the patient. After removing the saline solution, the surgeon places a sterile plastic ring in the nostrils and then covers the ring with a disposable bandage. which he removes after the surgery.
Surgical face masks can be worn in the operating room to allow the surgical team to disinfect the area around the patient. The area surrounding the face is usually disinfected by the use of a syringe filled with bleach and water. Once this is done, the sterile saline solution is added to the cleaning solution and the surgical areas are covered with a plastic bag. The cleaning solution is used to clean the patient, the sterile solution is added to the syringe and placed over the surgical area, and the mask is put on the patient. The patient then waits until it has fully dried before being allowed to return to his/her hospital room.
