Only National Nursing Service Specializing In Plastic Surgery

Building upon Make Me Heal’s expertise in plastic surgery recovery, we have created the first and only national caregiving service that specifically focuses on caring for plastic surgery patients. With Make Me Heal, you are able to get a highly-skilled, compassionate, licensed professional caregiver to care for you directly in your home, hospital, or home of a family/friend (or any other recovery place) during the days of recovery when you need to rest continuously and close supervision and assistance from another person in performing daily activities is necessary and important. Our caregivers are available in all states of the United States and can stay with you for anywhere from 1 day, several days, a week, and for longer-term periods. Learn more about how a professional caregiver can benefit your healing journey.

Our Caregivers Are Trained In Plastic Surgery Healing

What makes our service unique from regular caregiving and nursing companies is that we have an expertise in cosmetic surgery healing and we use the years of extensive knowledge that we have acquired in this field to provide specialized, cosmetic procedure-specific training to all of our caregivers. Each caregiver who cares for a patient is specifically trained in the important healing issues and recovery solutions that relate to the specific procedure(s) that a patient is having. For instance, if you are having a breast augmentation, you can rest assured that the Make Me Heal caregiver who will care for you will have been trained in all the issues, symptoms, problems and the solutions associated with recovery from breast augmentation. Additionally, our caregivers can work with your doctor’s staff to ensure that the doctor’s post-operative care instructions are followed precisely.

When you contact us, we will answer all your questions and address any concerns that you may have. We will learn about your specific needs and then communicate them to the caregiver. We'll discuss your options and work to assign the most compatible caregiver for your needs.

How Can A Professional Caregiver Benefit My Healing Journey?

A considerable number of patients get a professional caregiver to care for them during the initial days of post-op for procedures such as a breast augmentation, face lift, liposuction, tummy tuck, and other procedures. The reason why patients get a caregiver during their healing journeys is because doctors often require a patient to have someone with them during the initial phase of recovery. During this period, the patient’s energies need to be focused on the healing process itself and no effort should be spent on activities that are not vital to the immediate recovery. At this time, the patient’s main job is to rest, relax, and do nothing else that could get in the way of healing. As a result, a caregiver is needed to help the patient in all of their daily functions and activities, including everything from icing swollen regions constantly around the clock, giving the patient antibiotic and pain medications on time, preparing meals, feeding and giving the patient drinks, helping the patient go to the bathroom, assisting in wound care, helping the patient in showering and personal care, assisting the patient in getting dressed, and many other activities.

During the initial stage of recovery, a caregiver is also needed because the patient’s physical condition can often prevent them from doing their normal activities. Following surgery, the patient is often tired and low on energy due to the physical trauma from the surgery. Additionally, the patient may feel disoriented, dazed, and “out of it” due to the anesthesia and medications (such as painkillers) that may be administered. As a result, the patient’s coordination may be limited and the patient may have trouble standing, walking and focusing on normal tasks and activities. Trying to do much of anything on one’s own without another person’s assistance can disturb and even slow down the patient’s healing process and worsen post-operative symptoms such as swelling and bruising. Most importantly, having no assistance during the initial recovery period can actually be unsafe and dangerous due to the patient’s post-op condition. For these reasons, having a professional caregiver who can assist you in performing all of your necessary daily activities can be a great benefit to your healing journey, as it can help you heal better and faster and provide you added comfort, safety, and peace of mind.

Finally, you may wonder if a family member or friend can make a good caregiver to you during your recovery. Family members and friends can in fact make great caregivers. If you are going to choose this route, the family member or friend needs to be naturally caring, responsible, patient, and be a reliable person who can be counted on to be able to be there for you around-the-clock and into the late hours of the night for anywhere from 24-72 hours without getting much sleep (depending on the procedure and your personal condition). As importantly, this caregiver needs to have good bedside manners and needs to remain cheerful and calm even if the patient becomes irritable, emotional and depressed (which is normal and can happen to a good number of patients). We should note that for many of us there is no short supply of caring friends or family to help. However, patients have often chosen to go with a professional caregiver instead because they simply preferred to have a person who is experienced and who has good bedside manners and patience. As you know, family and friends love you and can be well meaning, but they simply do not always have the right qualities to allow them to succeed in the role of a caregiver for a person who just had surgery. For patients who get a professional caregiver, the patient’s family enjoys having a professional caregiver to care for their loved one because the family can rest assured that the patient is in good hands. Considering the financial and personal investment that a patient puts into a surgical experience, it is important to have the utmost comfort. For these reasons, a Make Me Heal caregiver can be the right solution for you. Whether you choose a professional caregiver or not, the important message is that if your procedure requires a person to assist you, then you should not jeopardize your results and safety by not having a caregiver – be it a professional, family member, or friend. This is not the time to be alone and hold out on this critical component of your early recovery.
