Arriving in San Diego for Your Procedure with Dr. Bolitho

To ensure a seamless experience, Dr. Bolitho prefers that his patients arrive to the San Diego area at least a day before their procedure. This will give Dr. Bolitho, his medical staff, and your patient concierge, Karen, the opportunity to meet with you and address any questions you may have.

Advanced Care, Certified Comfort: Your Surgery Experience at Dr. Bolitho's Surgical Suite

Dr. Bolitho’s state-of-the-art surgical suite is fully certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). To ensure the highest level of care, all surgeries are performed under the supervision of board certified anesthesiologists. Dr. Bolitho’s surgical suite is steps away from the world famous Scripps Memorial Hospital.

Generally, our out-of-town patients have a relative or friend traveling with them. While this individual may offer to assist in your recovery following surgery, do know we can also make arrangements to have an experienced plastic surgery nurse stay with you. Depending on the procedure, some nurses stay a couple nights while others may stay a bit longer. For many family members and friends, a plastic surgery nurse specialist offers additional “peace of mind.”

Likewise, if our patient is traveling solo, they can have comfort knowing while they are healing a nurse will give them the personalized attention they require and deserve.

Dr. Bolitho reminds patients they should allow for sufficient recovery time.   These times may vary depending on the procedure. However, patients usually stay between 7 to 10 days. Our unwavering mission is to make certain your surgical journey is as comfortable as possible.

The Lodge at Torrey Pines

Dr. D. Glynn Bolitho is pleased to announce his corporate partnership with The Lodge At Torrey Pines to better enhance the patient aftercare experience. For patients traveling afar or even within close proximity, affording them the opportunity to recover at one of the most distinctive and private properties in La Jolla can indeed offer an optimal healing ambience.

Immediate aftercare is embraced with peace and relaxation.

Be it operative facial aesthetics or body contouring procedures, plastic surgery is investing in oneself. And following a procedure, such an investment should segue into a tranquil environment with lush landscape, luxurious guest rooms, a wide assortment of amenities, and gourmet in-room dining.

Following surgery, generally Dr. Bolitho’s patients are either escorted to their recovery retreat located 5 minutes away from the Scripps La Jolla Campus by their private nurse or accompanied by a family member.

A natural synergy was evident between the superior patient care practices that Dr. Bolitho and his team deliver and the distinctive retreat at this premier hotel. Dr. Bolitho handpicked The Lodge at Torrey Pines because of their sterling guest services.

The Lodge at Torrey Pines understands post-operative discretions and has created a compassionate VIP protocol with well-being and privacy at the helm for Dr. Bolitho’s patients.
