Traveling To Beverly Hills for Plastic Surgery
Many times, patients travel to Beverly Hills from all over the country and world to see Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, rather than a doctor from their hometown. At first, it can seem complicated to make the trip to have surgery. Certain surgical procedures such as three dimensional individualized facelifts, rhinoplasty and facial reconstruction require advanced expertise.
As a practice that is used to dealing with out-of-town patients, we strive to make our patients feel like you are “local”. The first step is to contact Dr. Azizzadeh and our office, where we can address any concerns that you might have. After the plan is in place, a surgery date needs to be picked. Next, the travel arrangements need to be made.
Before traveling, it’s important to undergo the necessary pre-op clearance, which can be done in your hometown with your primary care physician. The pre-op visit with the Beverly Hills plastic surgeon will take place a day or two before surgery. At this point, you and your surgeon will finalize all plans as a face to face consultation is the most important aspect of the entire process. Outcomes, risks and expectations will be discussed.
About a 7-10 days after the procedure, you will be cleared to go home.
It is important to note that if a friend or family member is not accompanying you to Beverly Hills, you can go to an aftercare facility or have a nurse stay with you for the first few nights after surgery. These arrangements can all be made by the CENTER’s Surgical Consultant.
When it’s this simple, it’s easy to make the decision to travel to Beverly Hills to enlist the services of a board certified facial plastic surgeon to perform your procedure.
