Surgical Aftercare at Cadogan Clinic

We have been at the forefront of cosmetic surgery for 20 years in the UK and we know how important recovery and aftercare programmes are for every surgical journey. Comprehensive aftercare programmes play a pivotal role in minimising post-surgical complications and help deliver the very best results. 

Our bespoke surgical aftercare programme has been developed and perfected over two decades, with 30,000 patients now being seen each year at our award-winning clinic. Every element of each patient’s surgical procedure is tailored to each and every patient in order to support them to achieve their desired results, with aftercare a key part of this journey.

At the Cadogan Clinic, we are proud to have a permanent team of eight specialist post-operative dressings nurses with decades of experience between them who are here to help you every step of your recovery journey.

We measure the success of our surgery and aftercare with data: our revision rates are industry-leading at <3% (versus an industry standard of 10%+) and our infection rate is just 0.4% (versus an industry standard of 4.7%). 


Recovery Focused Surgeries

Your surgeon will first discuss your aftercare and recovery plan with you at your initial consultation, and you will be given clear instructions how best to prepare for your recovery in the run up to your surgery. This may include making sure you have a selection of clothing that is easy to get in and out of, such as tops that button up at the front, and organising any childcare or support around the house you may need.

A straightforward and easy recovery is prioritised during your surgery. All surgeries at Cadogan Clinic are carried out as day case procedures, meaning you will go home the same day, with no overnight stay. This is possible through our use of the anaesthetic, TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) which involves a very light, controlled sedation that reduces post-operative nausea and sickness and allows for a quick initial recovery. We were one of the first hospitals in the UK to use this technique 20 years ago and it has enabled excellent patient outcomes and recoveries ever since.

Being able to go home the same day as your procedure is key to our recovery and aftercare philosophy. Being able to recover in the comfort of your own home reduces infection risk and patient anxiety levels, making your surgical journey as smooth and comfortable as possible.

Our data-led approach is proven in our numbers: Cadogan Clinic’s infection rate is less than 1% per year, with the national average being 4.7% annually.

Your Aftercare Timeline at Cadogan Clinic

Every step of the surgical journey at Cadogan Clinic is focused on achieving your desired results, with your comprehensive recovery programme beginning its next phase as soon as your procedure finishes.

Straight After Your Surgery

Straight after your surgery, you will be taken to our Recovery and Ambulatory wards. Here you will have your own room and our Recovery and Ambulatory nurses will make sure you are comfortable and prepare you to be discharged.

They will explain your initial aftercare, including how to look after your dressings, what activities you need to avoid and any medication you need to take. They will also show you how to look after your compression garments, which are included in your surgical package, to aid your healing and prevent swelling. Once you leave the clinic, our nurses are available 24/7 to help you with any questions or concerns.

If you have travelled to come to Cadogan Clinic for surgery, you might want to consider staying in a local 5-star hotel to begin your recovery with a little bit of luxury. We are proud to work with No 11 Cadogan Gardens and the Belmond Cadogan Hotel who can offer discounts for Cadogan Clinic’s surgical patients.

If you are looking for additional medical support during your recovery, we are also proud to partner with Loveday and Co. to offer post-surgery respite in a number of their luxury residences near to Cadogan Clinic. Here your meals will be provided along with a range of cultural activities to keep you occupied while you heal.

Your surgical journey (and recovery) doesn’t end at 6 weeks. Depending on the procedure you’ve had, your surgeon may ask you to come in for another follow up appointment.

You have access to our post-operative nurses for up to 2 years following your procedure to answer any questions and your dedicated surgical patient advisor will also be on hand if you have any questions or concerns.
