Post-Aesthetic Procedure/Weight Loss Surgery Recovery

What is Post-Aesthetic Procedure/Weight Loss Surgery Recovery?

Post-aesthetic procedure recovery refers to the period after cosmetic surgeries, either non-invasive or surgical, during which patients recover. This also includes surgical treatments performed on those who wish to reduce a large amount of weight, like gastric sleeve and bypass surgeries. Whatever the procedure, in order to reduce discomfort and swelling, and guarantee the best possible outcome, patients must strictly follow post-operative care instructions.

Following aesthetic procedures or weight loss surgeries, Sunninghill Recovery Lodge believes that efficient and effective recovery involves an organised approach, which includes dietary changes and lifestyle alterations. This is why we place emphasis on how crucial it is for our guests to follow medical advice to achieve good results.



What does our Post-Aesthetic/Weight Loss Surgery Recovery involve?

At Sunninghill Recovery Lodge, our skilled team has experience in post-aesthetic procedure recovery and weight loss surgery, including:

  • Understanding that aesthetic changes can result in extreme sensitivity. Therefore, we provide a place of tranquility and privacy for healing.
  • Assisting with everyday tasks, such as mobility, bathing, dressing, and eating, as well as the emptying and cleaning of a patient’s drain.
  • Diet management, by our on-site chef, as some procedures require specific dietary requirements.
  • Ensuring patients are able to attend required appointments with medical professionals
  • Pain management, as many patients are unaware of the seriousness of the pain they will experience following an aesthetic procedure.
  • Psychological recovery. We know that a big part of good recovery is psychological, so we ensure psychologists and social workers are on standby.

Our approach

At Sunninghill Recovery Lodge, we develop a carefully crafted, individual recovery plan for each guest. Our team ensures that you are able to recover from aesthetic procedures in a private environment with as much normalcy or luxury as you need. With exceptional care, our team works to ensure you are supported emotionally and mentally, enabling you to heal holistically and remain comfortable during your stay.

Our objective is to get to know you before your surgery so that we can ensure we understand your unique needs and wishes, and to walk your road to recovery with you from start to finish. You will come to us straight after you’re discharged from the hospital, and we will help get you settled into your room and take time to learn about your requirements to ensure that you are able to remain in control and feel at ease with your recovery process.

Once you are settled in, our experienced team will ensure your vitals are taken, treatments are scheduled, and ablution requirements are met. Most importantly, we will ensure you are treated with kindness, dignity, and compassion. We understand that real recovery is not just a physical process, and so we do our utmost to ensure that your emotional and psychological needs are also met.

When it comes to nutrition, we ensure that fluids are consumed and that our excellent meals inspire you to stay energised. Every guest always has a call button on hand to ensure that we can attend to your needs 24/7. Our main goal is to eliminate anxiousness, ensuring you never feel alone or vulnerable.

We have seen firsthand that recovery is dramatically improved when guests feel safe, loved, and in control. We have no restrictive visiting hours or schedules, so you have the freedom to decide what you need and how you want your recovery to happen.

Our approach makes use of three simple steps:

1. Create a non-clinical, beautiful, and safe environment that feels like home, but is staffed with carers attending to your needs 24/7, who also take detailed records.

2. To combine outdoor views, delicious, nutrient-dense meals, and private en-suite rooms to enhance a speedy recovery while guests heal both physically and emotionally.

3. To give control back to the guest by empowering them to make their own decisions while we communicate regularly and thoroughly with loved ones.
