Where Will My Plastic Surgery Procedure be Performed?

All plastic surgery procedures (both cosmetic and reconstructive) are performed at a hospital-based accredited facility that’s fully staffed with a board certified anesthesiologist and other medical professionals in the event that any major medical emergency should they arise. Surgeries are performed in an accredited hospital because patients are put to sleep with anesthesia by a board certified anesthesiologist.

Dr. Deutsch performs his surgeries at Northside Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital, Piedmont Fayetteville Hospital, Henry Medical Center, Southern Regional Medical Center, Gwinnett Medical Center and Atlanta Outpatient Surgery Center. Plastic surgery is not performed at the office of Perimeter Plastic Surgery; this office is for appointments/consultations and follow-ups. Depending on the type of procedure (whether it’s in-patient or out-patient), patients must stay the night in the hospital following the surgery. Hospital fees and charges will be discussed during your initial consultation with Dr. Deutsch.

Plastic Surgery Recovery Process

what will plastic surgery recovery be likeEvery procedure and every patient is different. During your consultation and pre-surgical visits, plan to discuss your surgery and recovery requirements with Dr. Deutsch and our staff to ensure your stay is not rushed and that you have ample time for recovery.

Understanding these details and discussing your post-op care needs is especially important if you are visiting our offices from out of town and need to make travel arrangements and overnight accommodations in Atlanta. Please review our Atlanta location page for more information and contact our office when scheduling your stay — we may be able to secure a discounted rate for you.

During your post-op and follow-up visits with Dr. Deutsch, you can also discuss details of your recovery that are specific to you and your surgery. The doctor is happy to answer any questions and address any concerns you have regarding your recovery.

In-Patient or Out-Patient

Depending on the procedure, you may be “in-patient,” meaning you’ll spend the night in the hospital after surgery. With an “out-patient” procedure, you will be released from the hospital on the same day you have surgery, once you’re awake and the anesthesia has worn off. It is recommended that you have someone to drive you home and help you because you may still feel groggy afterwards. The option to stay in the hospital overnight may also be available for other “out-patient” procedures as well, but please note that this includes additional hospital fees and charges.

Follow-Up Appointments

You will need to see Dr. Deutsch for a follow-up appointment a few days after surgery. Typically follow-up appointments take place one to three days after surgery and you may need to see the doctor more than one during the first week or two following your procedure.

If you’ve had drains placed, these will remove by the doctor during your follow-up appointment. If you’re visiting from out-of-state, you will be able to discuss your recovery progress and the doctor will determine when you’re able to return home during this first follow-up appointment. Anticipate that you will be in Atlanta for several days and potentially up to one week or longer depending on your specific medical needs and the procedure(s) performed.

Medications After Surgery

You will be prescribed medications to manage the pain following surgery which may impair your ability to drive. If possible, bring a friend or relative to assist you after your surgery and for follow-up visits. We are happy to help you arrange private transportation or a taxi. Keep in mind that, depending on your surgery, you may also need to wear compression garments so plan to pack loose or baggy clothing to accommodate bandages, garments or drains.

If you have any questions about what to pack or need any help making travel arrangements, please contact us. For more details about plastic surgery procedures, please contact us to book a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Deutsch.
