Recovering from surgery? Now you can do it in The Pierre Hotel

The rich have long flocked to boutique recovery suites to heal themselves from cosmetic surgery nips and tucks – but how many can say they’ve spent their R&R in a five-star hotel? New York City’s Pierre Hotel has has partnered with Dr. Robert T. Grant, the Plastic Surgeon-in-Chief at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University and Weill Cornell Medical Center to house post-op patients.

Guests enjoy the services of a surgeon, nutritionist and stylist to pamper post-op patients and provide 24-hour care and privacy, including round-the-clock care from Dr. Grant himself, personal shopping, custom menu creation, private escort to and from the room, spa and salon services in-room, 24/7 masseuse availability, car services and more.

Hmm, sure does sound better than sitting in our own bed. But, like most good things in life, all of these services are available at an extra cost and start at around $650 (a nutrition consult and five follow-ups). Add that to the $600+ per night hotel charge and you’ll find that your recovery time just might be more expensive than the surgery itself, albeit a touch more pleasant.
