It’s important to factor in recovery planning. After procedures such as: facelift, liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or butt lift, you’ll want someone to take care of you. Although home may be the preferred option, it may be best to recover at a licensed health care center where licensed nurses and certified nurses’ aides can take care of all your post-op needs.

Treat yourself (even if it’s only for a day) to around the clock support and care after your procedure. Feel pampered in your own private suite at The Abington, a center that is 5-Star CMS rated and JCAHO accredited.

The Abington of Glenview offers the privacy and security you’ll need for healing and recovery such as:
