Post Operative Care
Dr Hodgkinson and the staff of the Cosmetic & Restorative Surgery Clinic and Double Bay Day Surgery realize that the healing phase after surgery is extremely important and requires communication and cooperation between the patient and the clinic. Written post operative instructions are given to each patient as well as a briefing to their support people to ensure that the patient knows what to expect in each phase of their healing.
The clinic's and day surgery's nurses are all regular staff with extensive experience specialising in cosmetic plastic surgery. The nurses are there to take your calls and provide regular check-ups, dressing changes and care during your post-operative period.
24 On Call Service
The clinic provides a 24 hour on-call service to answer your questions regarding your post-operative healing for the period following your surgery. This added service gives patients the comfort to know that help is only a phone call away.
Overnight Private Nursing Service
For patients who are from out of town, having more extensive surgery or want the extra added assurance that there is a nurse present, the clinic can arrange for an extra fee to have one of our specialised post-operative care nurses stay with you or your loved ones overnight in your home or a nearby hotel.
