Riviera Health Resort Introduces Post-Cosmetic Surgery Acute Care
Dr. Ismael Roque-Velasco | October 3, 2012

Individuals who have had cosmetic surgery now have the option of receiving post-surgical care within a medical facility designed as a luxurious boutique-hotel.

Riviera Health Resort, conveniently located in Coral Gables, provides 24-hour care within a state-of-the-art, post-acute and rehabilitation facility. Guest services include: around-the-clock nursing services, pain medication, medical supervision, dressing changes, bathing and a la carte meals. The all-inclusive services are offered at $500 per day for a private room, inclusive of pain medication.

“The first 48 hours of post-surgical care are crucial because potential complications generally arise during that time-frame,” said Dr. Ismael Roque-Velasco, Chief Administrative Officer of Riviera Health Resort. “Complications may arise from anesthesia reaction, infections, blood clots and numerous other potentially hazardous issues. That is why, depending on the magnitude of the procedure, physicians encourage continuous care. Riviera Health affords patients complete medical care, within a highly amenitized environment.”

The newly-built, five-story Mediterranean-style building boasts elegantly-furnished interiors and suites featuring delightful views, beautiful Venetian plaster walls and porcelain floors that gracefully off-set the mahogany wood furniture and accents.
 
“We believe that the option of personalized medical care within a luxury hotel environment offers significant advantages for both foreign and domestic patients alike,” adds Dr. Roque-Velasco. “Patients often do not want to be home without care, and foreign guests may appreciate a luxury hotel but do not have the necessary access to medical care. Riviera Health affords the best of both worlds, and the initial response from plastic surgeons has been extremely positive.”
