The Importance of Having a Chaperone 24 hours After Your Surgery
Following your surgery (i.e., laser vaginal rejuvenation, labiaplasty, or other designer laser vaginoplasty), whether you’re in a hospital or outpatient surgery facility, you are always required to have an adult with you when you leave. Many patients do not realize the importance of having someone there for the first and most critical hours after your procedure. While your doctor can recommend this, the responsibility is ultimately the patient’s. It is of utmost importance that you have someone to care for you until: 1. The anesthesia is out of your system, 2. The discomfort you’re experiencing is manageable, and 3. Until your mind is clear enough such that you are alert and observant enough to call your surgeon with any questions or concerns. Having a chaperone to care for you until these three criteria are met is integral for your health, safety, and to ensure optimal healing.
