Like any surgical procedure, plastic surgeries require rest and recovery time. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, our routine post-operative instructions require a patient to have a caregiver for the first 24 hours after surgery. There are many reasons The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery considers caregivers after plastic surgery a necessity. Firstly, major complications from surgery are most likely to happen in the first 24 hours. This is due to many factors including, complications associated with general anesthesia, and the body returning to normal function following surgery. While major complications rarely happen, it is important that they are handled well if they do. Secondly, patients often do not have full range of movement and experience pain following surgery. Caregivers can ensure the patient rests adequately and is taken care of. They may also need help moving around to prevent blood clots or use the bathroom. Finally, caregivers provide vital emotional support. Plastic surgery causes a variety of emotions in patients and it is important they feel supported. While Dr. Jonov and The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery team support patients as much as possible at post-op appointments, having a trusted person with them following surgery can make recovery more bearable.
