Dr. Andrew Barnett MD Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon

Recovery Options

Following surgery, a number of alternatives are available to facilitate your recovery.

Options available include:
  • Home Recovery
  • Hospital Recovery
  • Private Duty Nursing - Hospital
  • Private Duty Nursing - Home/Hotel

Our Patient Counselor will work with you to put together the best plan for your needs, including combinations of the options above!

Home Recovery

This the most common alternative. It is very helpful to have someone with you, a friend or family member, for at least 24 hours, and for certain procedures, a few days longer. We provide comprehensive post operative recovery instructions, and are available for questions.

Hospital Recovery

We have made arrangements with St. Francis Memorial Hospital for discounted fees for one to two nights of hospital stay. This is highly recommended for facelifts and abdominoplasty surgery (tummy tuck). It is available for any of our surgeries.

Private Duty Nursing

We can make arrangements for private nursing at the hospital and for your home or hotel. We can make arrangements for transportation as well. The nurses that we work with have extensive experience in caring for plastic surgery patients, and are wonderful people.

“I am a registered nurse… so after a lot of research and speaking to other physicians and fellow nurses… my decision was made. He is an artist and I believe the best in his field. Now my favorite thing to do is shop for bras. Thanks Dr. B, you are truly the best.”

“As a physician, I know about physician hype and marketing, the go to surgeon nonsense… Having lived and worked in the Bay area for many years, when it was my time I asked colleagues who performs consistently excellent facial work. Your name came up repeatedly… While I was impressed with your professionalism, it is the artistic, balanced, natural result that reminds me everyday that I made the right choice putting my face in your hands. Thank you.”

“When I tell people that I have two adult children, they look at me and say, “You must have been a child bride.” Well I love the look on their faces when I tell them I’m 63. Sometimes I say “You know, Dr. Barnett is my secret weapon”, but most of the time I just say, “Oh, I guess I’m lucky. Good genes…” If they only knew! You are wonderful.”
