Post-operative care

You are here:

Mr Luke Cascarini and his team provide an end-to-end-service for patients suffering from conditions of the mouth and jaw and face.

You will be supported throughout your care, from initial appointment to surgery, if required, to post-operative recovery by Luke and his team.

After your procedure, you will be given full instructions such as how to care for the wound site, what you can eat and drink, exercises you will need to do and when and how to take any medication you have been given.

A follow-up appointment will be arranged, usually around a week following your procedure, to check your progress, including the wound site, medication levels and arrange any further scans or treatment.

If you have any concerns once you get home from hospital you can contact us during office hours or the hospital where you were treated.

In advance of going into hospital, you may find these resources helpful:
