What to Expect with Your Out-of-State Procedure

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 12,792,377 plastic surgery procedures were performed last year in the United States. This means that there are a lot of people looking to undergo surgery, however, not all of them can afford top-notch pricing. Because of this, many are opting for surgery in cities where pricing is more competitive.

When it comes to traveling out-of-state for a procedure, be sure to take these things into account.

Do You Need to Schedule a Consultation?

When it comes to small procedures like injectables, a consultation in advance may not be required. However, more invasive procedures may require post-op consultations to determine the best approach for surgery. Make sure to ask your surgeon ahead of time whether or not you will have to attend a consultation to plan accordingly.

Is your Surgeon Qualified?

Search for a board-certified surgeon who performs your desired procedure. It is important to do your research, instead of just choosing a surgeon based on advertisements or magazines. You can find a list of board-certified surgeons at www.plasticsurgery.org.

Book a Prepared Hotel Room

When booking a hotel room, be sure that it has easy wheelchair access. Even if your surgery requires minimal downtime, you may still want to be wheeled around the first day. It is also important that your hotel room has a mini fridge. Since you can be confined to your bed for healing for a while, you will want a place to stock healthy snacks and prescriptions.
