    After Care

    Follow-up consultations and convalescence options after Plastic Surgery

    Suppose you arrive at Guatemala City on Sunday evening, have all your laboratory and medical tests done on the following Monday (the 1st full day of your medical stay in Guatemala), surgery can then take place immediately on the next day, nl. Tuesday (2nd day of your medical stay in Guatemala).

    After surgery, you´ll spend some time convalescing in Guatemala. The amont of time you´ll need to stay here before boarding your flight back home, depends on the type of surgery.

    To figure out how many days  you’ll need to spend in Guatemala – near your Specialist Doctor for close follow up – and how many days you can take off (inAntiguaor atLake Atitlan) in between consultations, also depends on the type of surgery you choose.
