Out Of Town Patient Guide: Getting Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CaliforniaPosted on April 25, 2020
Out Of Town Patients
As awareness about the importance of cosmetic surgery procedures grows, many patients are now willing to travel out of town in order to obtain the best in class treatment from a reputable surgeon. Virtual communication means have made it easier to have long distance consultations so that the patient may only visit once for their actual surgery procedure.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides cosmetic and reconstructive procedures for the breast, body, and face to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
While you are always welcome to have an in-person consultation with the surgeon even as an out of town patient, it may not be feasible for many patients to travel from afar for the pre-surgery consultation. Therefore, at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery, you can schedule your virtual consultation with Dr. David Kim.
Your surgeon and their team will make sure your pre-op consultation via phone and email is as productive and useful as an in-office consultation. Prior to the consultation, your patient coordinator will assist you to complete patient forms and send them over along with your medical history.
You will also have to provide photographs of your areas of concern, and Dr. Kim will evaluate them ahead of your scheduled consultation. Based on your detailed consultation and the information you have provided, Dr. Kim will prepare a customized surgical plan for you.
Scheduling Your Surgery
Following the consultation, you can take your time to evaluate your options and make up your mind about going ahead with the procedure. If you have any doubts or concerns, feel free to communicate through your patient coordinator and make a salient decision. Once you are ready, your patient coordinator will help you schedule the surgery date.
You will also receive a set of instructions to follow prior to and following your plastic surgery procedure. You may also have to submit the results of a few medical tests and blood work, depending on your health status and the type of procedure you plan to undergo.
Arriving for Your Surgery
Your patient coordinator will guide you about the hotels in Beverly Hills and assist you with your bookings if needed. You should plan to arrive a day in advance for your surgery so that you can make yourself comfortable in the new place. It would be ideal to have someone accompany you on the surgery day and stay with you for at least 24 hours post-surgery to provide physical and emotional support.
You should be prepared to stay in town for a few days for early recovery before you can travel back to your home. This time period can vary according to the procedure, but in general you can expect to stay in Beverly Hills for about a week after your surgery.
