Driving home after plastic surgery
I am 68-years-old and I am seeking a facelift procedure, but I live alone and my family lives at least an hour away from me. Is it possible to drive myself home after the facelift surgery?
You should not drive yourself home after surgery. In fact, you should make arrangements to have someone stay with you for a few days after surgery. The night of your surgery, we make arrangements for a nurse to care for you in a recovery suite. The morning after your surgery, I see you in follow up. At that time, a family member or friend will take you home. Again, we ask that you make arrangements to have someone stay with you for a few days after surgery.
