1. Ask questions
Do not be afraid to ask any question. Contact Lohner Plastic Surgery immediately, if you have any questions or concerns.
2. Pick up prescriptions prior
It is best to pick up your pain medications prior to your surgery. These should be on hand to start immediately after your procedure.
3. Schedule transportation
A ride home is required after your surgical procedure. Arrange transportation assistance from the surgical center, as well as for all follow-up appointments, if necessary.
4. Buy supplies
Gather books, magazines, extra pillows, icepacks, and simple foods to have on hand after surgery. This will ensure a smooth, peaceful recovery.
5. Take time off
Appropriate recovery time is necessary for proper healing. Take the recommended amount of time off from work or school, allowing plenty of time for rest and relaxation.
6. Gather important numbers in a central location
In case of an emergency, or any questions you may have for Dr. Lohner and his staff, collect all important phone numbers, and insurance cards in an easily accessible location. Share this location with whomever is assisting you during your recovery time.
