If you are planning to have plastic surgery, but would rather not impose on friends and family for post-op assistance, we may be a great option for you. Most of the time, spouses or friends are not prepared to provide quality recovery assistance. Busy households and hectic schedules make rest, relaxation, and adherence to activity restrictions difficult. Studies have shown that patients that do not set up aftercare assistance may experience longer and more difficult recovery courses.

LifeCare will enable you to plan your procedure and have a safe recovery in the comfort of your own home, or a place of stay of your choice. LifeCare will arrange all of your transportation needs, including to and from the surgery site, and to all postoperative follow-up appointments during the recovery time.

Depending on the level of care that you and your doctor feels are required, LifeCare will customize an individual care plan for you. Your care plan may include assistance from a CNA, a caregiver, or a registered nurse on an hourly, live-in, or visit basis.

Your care plan may include but will not be limited to the following services:

  • Pre-op assessment and aftercare plan development
  • Private transportation to and from procedure site

After a procedure you may be groggy and will require 24 hour monitoring. You may experience discomfort, swelling, or even bruising. You may also have drains that need to be emptied regularly or have special compression garments or elastic bandages over the surgical sites. LifeCare can assist you to make your recovery as smooth as possible, helping with emptying drains, regular dressing changes, preventing blood clots, administering pain medication and antibiotics, and proper positioning in bed to minimize incision tension.
