I expect that I will basically be bed ridden after my procedures and I wont be able to walk around the city and go to restaurants while I have a lot of bandages on my face. I am wondering how I could get food to my room while I'm resting after the procedure. I know that the lite plan offers breakfast while the compact offers all 3 meals. Will those meals be delivered like room service? And If I chose to get the lite plan how could I get my other meals? Thank you! KissKiss

The Youtube channel simply says that the food is delivered to the hotel so that you don't have to leave the hotel for food. If you chose the lite plan, you'd probably have to order regular food service. :)

Good to know! That's such a relief to know for sure because it would be so embarrassing and awkward to walk around Seoul with a bandaged nose hahah

Yeah apparently a lot of clinics have hotels attached to them so that patients won't be embarrassed. Usually those hotels are also recovery resorts with a lot of pampering to speed up the recovery process ;)

I don't know any specific clinics but if you look up clinics that are on that Gangnam belt, a lot will be like that

haha I don't think we need to worry about that. I heard that it's common to see girls after surgery shopping around, especially in Gangnam district. You know, there are like hundreds of clinics, people are used to see that.

Just wondering is it okay to eat regular food after surgery? or something specially made for post-procedure recovery?

I think this depends on the surgery. If you had jaw surgery, you will only be able to eat soft foods and liquids. If you had liposuction or eyelid surgery or something, I think you should be fine eating simple and healthy foods :)

I'm thinking protein/meal replacement shakes haha

Just bring sachets, add to water and you're good to go ;)

@ames3j , you are absolutely right! After my surgery in Korea, the first day involved nutritional shakes/meal replacements (I also had dissolvable stitches inside my mouth). After the 2nd day, I was able to eat soft/regular meals :)

I like the idea of losing weight at the same time haha! But personally I wouldn't recommend doing a juice cleanse for more than a day or two after the surgery, simply because your body will need a lot of fuel (i.e. from protein and complex carbs) to heal itself after the procedure :) so maybe if you won't be able to chew for a while you could consider adding porridge (oats) etc. to your post-operation diet?

I agree. I tried my best to eat a healthy/balanced diet and rested a lot, and I found that I felt pretty normal after the first 2 days or so. I'm not really familiar with how a juice cleanse works, but I wouldn't compromise your recovery by trying to lose weight at the same time.

I've heard a lot of people lose weight even after a non-weight loss surgery, but I would definitely try to get some protein in your diet post-operation because your body will need the nutrition! You can still lose weight by eating things like soup or, if you really can't chew anything, protein shakes (just beware the ones with tons and tons of sugar). Also if you're going to have stitches in your mouth . . . this is just a guess but you might not want to drink any acidic juices, like pineapple, grapefruit, or maybe even orange? It seems like it might sting.

You don't need to worry about this thing. Now a days many hotels attach with the hospitals. You can book that hotel room in advance and choose a lite plan over their. They easily provided you treatment at your room. You will no need to go outside for food.

Thank you all for the concern. I should have clarified, I am a raw vegan so this kind of juice/smoothie based eating is nothing new for me. I think that it would be a shock for someone who eats a standard diet, and probably not that healthy, but since I regularly eat a very high carb/low fat/low protein diet, I think I will be ok. I have found juice fasting to be a wonderful way to recover quickly from inflammation especially from past surgeries, but again, it depends on how divergent this method is from your current lifestyle.

Does anyone know if the hotels that they set you up with are the ones linked with the clinic?

I'm also curious about this. It would be really convenient if that were the case, but it probably depends on the clinic and what plan you get. I.e. if you get the Lite plan you are paying for a 4-star hotel so if the hotel attached to the clinic is 5-star they probably wouldn't put you there? And of course not all clinics have hotels attached

The hotel I stayed at was ~10 minutes away from the clinic I went to! Even the 4-star hotels are very nice. :)

Does anyone have more suggestions for soft / liquid foods? The protein shakes are a good idea but it could get boring to have that for everyone meal haha

Hi, everyone! This site is amazing I reckon as here anyone can find information close to personal interests or share an opinion on certain problems. By the way, you can use another source to find what you need .....-regularly

@Jelly Fish thank you for the link!

 

@haley if you don't have incisions in your mouth (which are common for several facial contouring surgeries) then fruit or vegetable smoothies/juices could be good. You can add protein powder to them if you're still looking to get protein in. Also applesauce, soups, and oatmeal/other warm cereals. I believe @dnice said her hotel (with the Lite plan) had a kitchen, so you should be able to cook while you are there.
