With patients from across the United States and abroad coming to experience Vertical Restore® and other facial rejuvenation procedures by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Karam, having the best possible accommodations and a safe, serene, and easily accessible postoperative recovery space was imperative.

It is with this in mind that Dr. Karam is pleased to make available the brand-new Solana Beach Recovery Retreat, fully furnished and equipped with amenities specifically selected with recovery from cosmetic surgery in mind.

Welcome to Solana Beach Recovery Retreat

Solana Beach Recovery Retreat gives our patients, and particularly those coming from out of town, a serene atmosphere to stay in throughout their recovery time, should they desire to do so.

Located one block away from the beach, and a 15-minute drive from our surgical suites, Carmel Valley Facial Plastic Surgery Center’s private Solana Beach Recovery Retreat is situated in an upscale neighborhood that is both safe and quiet.

Come for the Surgery. Stay for the Serenity.

Solana Beach Recovery Retreat features include...

  • 2 bed, 2 bath
  • 1,093 square-feet
  • Airy, spacious patios and yards
  • Just a block away from beautiful beaches
  • In a safe, quiet, upscale neighborhood
  • Centrally located with rapid access to the freeway and local attractions
  • Approximately 15 minutes from Carmel Valley Facial Plastic Surgery Center

Additional Services Available From Preselected Providers

In addition to our complimentary suite of services, Solana Beach Recovery Retreat suggests that patients consider using the following additional services as needed.

While these providers have been vetted, they do handle their own bookings and schedule. The teams suggested are well-versed in the postoperative recovery needs of our patients and they tend to book quickly. We encourage you to reach out to them directly shortly after your surgery with Dr. Karam has been scheduled.

Post Care Nurses

As a standard safety practice, we require that someone over the age of 18 accompany all patients for the first 24 hours after their surgery. In the event that you are not traveling with another adult or you don’t have someone who can bring you to and from our surgical center after your procedure, an experienced post-care nursing team is available.

The post-care nursing teams we use are 24-hour services that provide the following:

  • Patient pick up from recovery and trip to Solana Beach Recovery Retreat
  • Return to morning post-op followup
  • Charting all medications and activities
  • Changing dressings
  • Assisting with meals and fluids
  • Interfacing with family

Dedicated Driver Available for Transport

Patients needing only safe and reliable transportation to and from our office or other areas of town can book a dedicated personal driver. Familiarity with our patient’s needs makes these drivers a far superior choice when compared to booking individual trips with rideshare providers such as Uber or Lyft, which we don’t recommend during recovery.

Chef to Prepare Meals for Two

Solana Beach Recovery Retreat provides two complete menu plans sufficient for a ten-day stay. Created with recovery in mind, these menus gradiently take patients from lighter and more liquid meals that are ideal after surgery, to more substantial dishes toward the end of their stay. A personal chef can be arranged to prepare lunch, dinner, and snacks for two throughout your visit.

Popular Nearby Attractions

The nearby area in Solana Beach is home to great shopping, dining, and entertainment, with a handful of the many popular attractions being the following:

Patient resources e-book


In today’s day and age, most people are taking reasonable care of their health, fitness, and well-being. As they age, they “feel” more youthful and spirited than they actually “look” in the mirror. When this discord, or lack of alignment with body and spirit, is out of sync, people seek help to try and restore their youthful appearance in order to bring things back into balance.

Dr. Karam has created a visual guide into this revolutionary procedure. Get your free copy of this E-Book today!
