As the demand for plastic surgery increases, the headlines around botched surgeries and dangerous back alley procedures continue to rise as well. Elisha Lowe, owner of Cosmetic Surgery Aftercare Services, a Registered Nurse and former plastic surgery patient, is determined to help put an end to the poor practices associated with these procedures by providing pre-plastic surgery education and in-home nursing services after surgery.

Cosmetic Surgery Aftercare Services, a nurse-owned, Philadelphia based home care agency will open for business on January 2, 2012. Plastic surgery patients in the region will finally have a dedicated post-surgery specialist providing in-home nursing care services.

“Living in an immediate gratification society means that most people can have what they want when they want it”, said Elisha Lowe when asked why more people are choosing plastic surgery than ever before. “If there is something that you would like to change about your outward appearance, you can do so at affordable prices nowadays. That’s not a bad thing; in fact it can be very empowering and even liberating. I want to teach people how to make safe choices about plastic surgery. I take issue with the small percentage of practitioners that target and prey on the ill-informed and sometimes desperate consumers of plastic surgery services. Cosmetic Surgery Aftercare Services mission is to improve the overall experience of people recovering from plastic surgery through a client-centered, holistic approach to nursing care”.

Nursing care after surgical procedures has been shown to improve patient outcomes and increase overall satisfaction with the surgical experience. The best plastic surgeons will ensure that their clients have a comprehensive offering of services that includes nursing follow-up. Elisha Lowe is making in-home nursing services affordable to consumers considering plastic surgery. According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, consumers spent $10.1 billion on cosmetic procedures in the 2010 which is, up 1.2% from the previous year. The 2011 stats are expected to be released in 2012 and continue to trend upward. Aftercare services may be one of the deciding factors when determining whether or not to go forward with a procedure. Post –operative nursing services helps plastic surgeons save time, improve patient experiences, and potentially increase their business. Cosmetic Surgery Aftercare Services will begin offering services to plastic surgery patients in the Philadelphia area on January 2, 2012.
