Back Home — Post Operative Support & Care

Once you’re back home from your journey with Facialteam, our commitment to your well-being and satisfaction remains steadfast. The post-operative phase is crucial, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

Dr. Javier Gutierrez, one of our esteemed surgeons, emphasizes the significance of post-op care:

“Post-op care is always at the forefront of the medical field. We’ve published scientific papers on satisfaction questionnaires and long-term results in leading plastic surgery journals. Currently, we’re working on additional papers focusing on post-op care and outcomes. We’re dedicated to staying updated with the latest advancements by regularly attending scientific congresses, ensuring we’re always informed about innovations in this field.”

Long-Term Support

Your journey with Facialteam continues long after you leave our doors. Our post-operative team, made up of friendly coordinators, skilled surgeons, and a supportive psychologist, stays in touch with you.

We set up follow-up visits, aiming for three check-ins, which can be in-person or via Skype. The first of these is usually about a month after your surgery. As the days and years go by post-op, you can always count on us. Whether you prefer to drop an email, make a phone call, have a video chat, or even meet in person, we’re here to chat.

If you face any hiccups or complications back home, we’ve got your back. For smaller issues, we’ll guide you through or connect with local doctors to help out. But if it’s something that needs our direct attention, we’ll make sure you can come back to Spain for the care you need.

Whatever concerns or questions you have, we’re here to help, whether it’s about complications, results, or exploring other treatments. We genuinely care about how you feel and how you’re doing on your journey with us.

Feedback & Continuous Improvement

Your feedback is invaluable to us. We gather insights through various channels, from direct conversations during your stay to satisfaction surveys sent post-surgery and a year after. This feedback shapes our post-op department, driving constant improvements. We pride ourselves on our adaptability, always seeking ways to enhance the patient experience.
