Your time spent in hospital after surgery will depend on the procedure you have and its complexity. In Thailand, most clients are required to complete an overnight stay. This allows nursing staff to monitor the initial stages of recovery and is part of the next-level service you receive in Thailand. If surgical drains are placed to remove fluid from the incision sites after surgery, your stay may be longer (typically up to 2 nights). As with all aspects of your Plastic Surgery journey, your Surgeon will provide you with tailored advice and timeframes for your procedure.
It’s always best to be over prepared when it comes to packing your hospital bag. This ensures that you have everything you need if you need to stay longer than you anticipated. Essential items to take to hospital include your passport; a small amount of money (Thai Baht); your phone/mobile devices (for entertainment), chargers, and a Thailand power adapter; toiletries; post-surgery support garments; pyjamas & bed socks; a clean change of clothes & underwear (loose fit/easy to get on and off); your regular medications; tissues, wet wipes; and a book.
