Our practice is dedicated to providing our patients with care and attentiveness during their recovery period. Surgical patients receive a recovery care package as part of their experience with SDMD. Out-of-town patients can take advantage of reduced rates at our partnership hotels only blocks away from our practice.
For non-surgical patients, our practice also provides a full makeup bar as well as toiletries for patients, so that they may easily return to their normal work day after a Botox treatment or a laser treatment.

3 Tips for a Recovering Patient
1. Follow Directions
After any procedure you will receive post-operative directions from your provider as to how to take care of yourself in order to remain safe and comfortable. These suggestions will also help you maintain or obtain optimal results. Be sure to follow all directions closely.
2. Communicate with your provider
If you decide to take advantage of all that the city of Chicago has to offer and extend your stay here, please ask about special room rates with hotels in the area. The Gold Coast has some of the finest shopping and cuisine in the country.
3. Enjoy your time off
Sometimes patients are most nervous about the time associated with recovery. Plan to have things around your space that make you comfortable. Use any downtime as time for quiet reflection and self-pampering.
For best results, I recommend following all of the advice given by Dr. Dayan in his pre-op instructions. Dr. Dayan was completely accurate in his description of the procedure, the recovery time, and the results I could expect. If you have any questions regarding the technical details or risks of the operation, you should definitely contact him because he is an expert on all of the operations he performs. As far as recovery goes, I would expect not to do any serious exercise for three weeks to a month. However, I am now two months post-op and have returned to playing sports. I only used pain medication for 3-4 days following the surgery, and only needed the Valium one or two nights. The implant feels completely natural, secure, comfortable, and it looks great. I thank Dr. Dayan, Katie, Kaitlin and his wonderful staff, they are amazing and have made the process an extremely easy and rewarding one for me. – L.M
I could not be happier with the experience I had. I was extremely nervous before the procedure but both Dr. Dayan and his assistant Katie were extremely kind and attentive. I asked a million questions (no really, a million) and they made sure to answer all of them, consistently following up to confirm that I felt comfortable and safe. The surgery itself went very smoothly. The staff at the surgery center were fantastic. Katie even went the extra mile and walked my dog when I couldn’t get home from the surgery center in time. – Anonymous
