Overnight Stay


Overnight Stay Requirement

Joseph T Cruise, MD requires all of his patients undergoing general anesthesia have someone accompany them for 24 hours after surgery. For this reason, patients who have no one with them must stay, at a minimum, one night at a recovery facility. It may also be a requirement for more extensive surgeries such as mommy makeover, circumferential tummy tuck with liposuction, full and full facelifts. Joseph T Cruise, MD or your patient care coordinator will let you know if an overnight stay is required. Even if you have a spouse, family member, or friend to watch over you, it might be worth considering an overnight stay so you can get away, relax, and be taken care of by professionals who know just what you need and how to monitor your vitals, etc. following surgery.
We recommend the Laguna Village Recovery Center in Laguna Beach, CA. It is a specialized post-surgical recovery home, located in beautiful Laguna Beach, California. It is a tranquil family owned property staffed with registered nurses experienced in cosmetic surgery aftercare. They provide safe, nurturing aftercare in a comfortable home environment.

Although it is often difficult to eat after surgery due to lack of appetite, eating healthy meals can promote healing and reinforce the immune system. LVR provides light meals 3 times a day, beverages to ensure hydration, and assorted snacks. All meals are inclusive and served at your request.
