Out of Town Patients
Avana Plastic Surgery is committed to assisting out of town patients with their accommodation needs. From the moment you enter our surgery center, our staff is dedicated to making you feel welcomed. We have established the guidelines to accommodate our patients when scheduling surgery. Making your surgery stay pleasant is our number one priority.
If you are traveling to visit our renowned surgeons, please ask our staff to assist you with your accommodations. We have helped patients that travel from near and far to receive the high quality surgical and nonsurgical procedures we offer. You will be provided with crucial information that prepares you for surgery and recovery. Whether you are looking for a modest or a more lavish stay, we have a variety of lodging recommendations for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
At Avana Plastic Surgery, your health and safety is always our main concern. Many of our fly-in patients choose to stay at nearby hotels with all the amenities required for a safe and comfortable recovery. In order to make your trip run smoothly and provide you with a stress-free experience, we are available to answer any questions you may have throughout your surgical journey. From your initial consultation to recovery, our staff will be glad to assist you so you can make a better-informed decision.
Your initial consultation
- A preliminary meeting with your surgeon is essential. Our patients have two options to meet with a surgeon. They can either fly in or have a virtual consultation to discuss the details of the procedure, including body photographs via email to assist with the screening process. Going to the first consultation with a few simple questions can help your surgeon understand your aesthetic surgical goals and make recommendations accordingly.
- Patients can also schedule an in-person consultation to go over the proposed surgery and ask any related questions they may have. Our patient coordinators will be available to discuss all fees for surgery and other applicable expenses. A price quote will be provided and relevant information about the desired procedure so you can make all the necessary arrangements and plan accordingly.
- We understand that flying in may not be possible for some patients. That’s why we also provide email consultations. Patients will be asked to email full body pictures: typically the front, sides, and rear, depending on the type of procedure and surgical approach. The patient’s medical history, including medications and supplements they are currently taking, should be included. We will provide you with a medical questionnaire to include that information. Please e-mail your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Once you have determined that you wish to proceed with the chosen procedure, you will be contacted by a Patient Care Consultant to discuss available surgical dates. Due to our surgeons being some of the most requested plastic surgeons in the area and throughout the nation, a deposit will be required to secure the dates as there is usually limited availability. We advise our patients to arrive a day before their pre-op appointment.
- Once the surgery date has been scheduled, we will make sure you are cleared for surgery. Some specific instructions will be sent as requested by your surgeon. A prescription for required laboratory testing can be sent to the patient or facility of their choice. Testing should be completed 30 days prior to surgery. Based on the patient’s health status and the nature of the procedure, additional testing may be required.
- Once the patient is cleared for surgery, travel preparations are made. For your convenience, we have provided a list of hotels in the area as well as airports near our surgery center. We advise our patients to arrange for someone to accompany them and care for them following the procedure. A caretaker can drive the patient to and fro the clinic, and assist with personal care and hygiene, including meal preparation, shopping, running important errands such as prescription pick up, help with walking, dressing, and provide the level of support and companionship patients need during recovery.
