Our goal is to have both immediate and ultimate postoperative care to be excellent. The Benetatos nursing team at both the Athens Medical Center and the REA Maternity Hospital will make sure you have a comfortable and safe stay in the hospital for as long as you need it after your surgery. Postoperative care varies depending on the severity of your surgery.
Mr. Benetatos will monitor you closely until he has been cleared and the slightest chance of any complication occurring. There will never be an extra charge for post-operative visits – all costs are included in surgical costs. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
General principles and secrets for faster and safer healing.
Healing quality varies from person to person. Generally, the wounds of most patients heal too well, and relatively quickly, leaving thin white incisions, but in some healing is delayed and widespread red scars are created that may take months until they become flat and white. Once the incisions have healed, they should be moisturized (with any moisturizing cream you desire) and made a local massage one to two times a day.
Mr. Benetatos offers, without charge, Laser Fractional treatment to all patients who have surgery to improve and eliminate their scars.
In areas such as the breast or abdomen, silicone sheets may also be used, which has proven to help improve scarring, but it is a long process that can last at least 3-4 months of everyday use to produce a result. Instead, silicone-enriched Jel creams such as Stratamed or Dermatix can be used with much simpler application and corresponding results. Of course the combination of all the above options – Laser Fractional , hydration and massage, silicone sheets and silicone gel creams – is the one that will give the best result.
