Your surgical procedure(s) will be carried out the next day.
On the day of surgery you will be picked up by your assistant from your hotel accommodation and taken to the hospital.
All administration and patient admission details will be taken care of. Your service manager will visit you each day, and will be there to pick you up when you are discharged after your surgery. You will then be driven back to the hotel accommodation for complete rest and relaxation to fully recover from your surgery. She/he will continue to visit you every day at your hotel after your surgery, and will arrange all your post-surgery consultations with your surgeon (and will also escort you there and back). He / She will also arrange any dental or other appointments you wish to make, if you have not previously booked these before you arrive.
Step 9: Post Operative & Convalescence
You will recover following the doctor’s instructions. The first few days after surgery are the most important to get adequate rest. Usually, 2 to 4 post-surgical appointments will be necessary for the surgeon to check your general condition and ensure that you are healing well.
During the first one, your surgeon examines the bandages and the patient’s general condition.
The stitches will be removed during the final consultation (if applicable), and your surgeon will give his authorization so that you may return to your country or origin.
After recovering, once the surgeon is pleased with your progress, you will be given authorization to enjoy some of the interesting attractions our city offers. We’ll make all necessary arrangements for you to make some travel excursion either within or outside the city, according to the doctor’s permission.
