Plastic Surgery Recovery Center – FAQs
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about surgical aftercare at Pearl Recovery Retreat. At Pearl, our mission is to provide a serene atmosphere for surgery recovery. We invite you to enjoy our luxurious amenities alongside around the clock pampering from our team of experienced nurses. Please do not hesitate to Contact Us if you have any additional questions, concerns or requests in advance of your stay.
Why go to Pearl Recovery Retreat after my surgery?
Professional surgical aftercare is often the difference between a smooth, complication-free, post-op experience and one that leaves a patient feeling stressed and frustrated. With today's hectic lifestyles, patients who do not take the time to relax and adhere to activity restrictions may incur impediments during the surgery recovery process, which can lead to further complications and longer "down time." Scheduling a two or three night stay at a professional surgery recovery center, such as Pearl Recovery Retreat, is an effective way to manage the post-op process, ensuring the patients' safety and peace of mind.

Will I need a car while I am there?
All transportation from the surgery center as well as to post-op appointments is provided by Pearl Recovery Retreat. Usually, upon discharge from Pearl Recovery Retreat patients are picked up either by friends or family since the patients are still rather vulnerable after the operation and are on medication.

It all depends on the procedures involved. Whether it is a short stay or a long one, we will do our utmost to rejuvenate you as much as possible in the time given. Should you decide to prolong your stay at Pearl Recovery Retreat, we will gladly facilitate your needs.

Anyone may visit or call our patients simply by dialing 310-736-1009 and asking for the room number. If you are expecting visitors, do let us know and we will ensure access to your room.
Can I have family/friends stay with me overnight?
Absolutely! We appreciate that this is a vulnerable time for our patients and we are more than happy to create the environment where the patients will feel most comfortable on all levels. There is a nightly charge for an extra guest, so please let us know in advance.
Can I bring a pet with me?
Our pet fee is $100 per day and you must tell us the breed of your dog in advance.
Do I need to bring any medication with me?
Please bring all medications that you are currently taking unless specified otherwise by a doctor as well as the medication prescribed by your surgeon. You may also be advised by a doctor to acquire relevant homeopathic remedies (ex: arnica) prior to the operation.
I am a vegetarian/ kosher/ halal. Can you accommodate my needs?
Let us know beforehand what your preferences might be so we can make appropriate dining recommendations for you.
I have food allergies. Can you accommodate my needs?
You can give us a call 310-736-1009 or email us at email@example.com with the list of things you are allergic to as well as your preferences and we will work around it.
I am not from Los Angeles. Can I stay at Pearl Recovery Retreat prior to my operation?
No problem! Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness is located in Beverly Hills with access to all amenities. A lot of our out of town patients prefer to arrive prior to the operation to give themselves enough time to settle in, unpack and take a rest before the operation date. Please contact us to find out the nightly rate for a pre-op Pearl Wellness Suite.
What about extra services?
The price of your stay does not include service charges to nurses. Our nurses are known for their professionalism, warmth, and attention during a rather vulnerable time of a post-surgery recovery. Any extra service charges upon discharge will be welcomed and appreciated. However, it is your prerogative after all.
