Recovery or Airbnb?
Which one is best for you...
Recovery Houses are a dime a dozen in plastic surgery hot spots known for body contouring procedures.
Good ones are clean and spacious, serve nutrient-rich, chef-prepared meals, and give patients individualized care and attention from a licensed nurse. But unfortunately, it’s an unregulated space and there are far too many that take advantage of vulnerable, out-of-town patients with promises of accommodations, perks, and medical care that never materializes.
“It’s incumbent upon patients to dig a little bit deeper than the pretty veneer of places that are offering you transport to and from Airport, and all that Bling, but don’t necessarily have the best reputation,” says Dr. Louis St. Patrick, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Santo Domingo.. He refers His patients to recovery houses that offer overnight nurses and fully equipped and trained staff, that has “such high repute that my recommendation will never come back as a problem for me.”
Patients who’ve stayed at recovery houses are the best source for unbiased information.” That’s just the start. Once you’ve landed on a house with consistent reviews, it’s time to get the details that will help ensure you have the safest, most comfortable stay possible.
