The Recovery Process
After the procedure, we will apply bandages and garments (included in the surgery fee) as needed. There will be some discoloration and swelling around the surgical area, and this should improve over the next 7-10 days. Discomfort after surgery is easily managed with prescription medication, although many patients only require over-the-counter pain killers. You will need to avoid strenuous activities for 2 to 3 weeks for the most procedures (each procedure will have a unique post-surgery protocol – this information will be provided to you in writing after your surgery).
You will spend the first night in one of the beautifully appointed rooms in the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. The first post-surgical appointment will take place in your private suite which will make your recovery more pleasant. Our nurses will visit you the following morning to ensure that you are safe to be released home.
Dr. Jugenburg will see you at the regularly scheduled intervals during the weeks following your surgery. This is done so the doctor can personally monitor your recovery process, and to ensure that you have the best results possible.
