Care after plastic surgery starts with the office visit before your surgery. Photos are taken, consent forms signed, prescriptions for medications given and detailed instructions will be written for your after surgery care. This ensures that there is plenty of time before surgery to address any questions about the procedure(s) and recovery, and allows for the proper support systems to be put into place for an uncomplicated post plastic surgery recovery. After plastic surgery care is as an important factor as the plastic surgeon or the plastic surgery itself. Following your plastic surgeon’s instructions accurately can make the difference between a stellar result and a mediocre result.
We will not abandon you after your surgery. Dr. Stone personally calls patients within 24 hours of their surgery. Regular follow up visits and phone calls are made to make sure you are progressing well. During your post operation recovery we make ourselves available to you 24 hours a day.
It is important to thoroughly research your doctor to ensure that he or she has the requisite training, experience, and facility. In addition you should feel comfortable with the Plastic Surgeon you choose. This is important because should any problems arise after surgery you need to feel you can easily call and speak with your surgeon to treat any such problems as quickly as possible. Having a good surgeon that intimidates you or that you feel uncomfortable speaking with does not help the situation.
In most cases you can recuperate in the comfort of home with minimal help from loved ones and friends. For out of town or local patients who need help we can provide skilled nursing care in your home or hotel room. More skilled controlled care is required for after facelift surgery, most abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) operations and after large volume liposuction. There are many facilities nearby our Century City office that provide these services. Most are very private and of high caliber. We would be happy to provide you their brochures during your presurgery office visit. You may even wish to visit some of these facilities before your plastic surgery.
Although the practice of medicine and surgery is not an exact science and reputable practitioners cannot guarantee results, Dr. Stone stands behind his professional work. Your well being is his first priority. There are no surgeon’s fees for any requested “touch ups” that are performed within one year of the initial procedure. Patients are responsible for any associated operating room or anesthesia fees. All patients are contacted by Dr. Stone about 6 months after plastic surgery to see how well they are progressing. Out of town patients are always welcome to drop in and say hello when they are in the area.
We hope to see you in our office. I would like to help you put together a plan that will meet and satisfy your individual needs.
