Scheduling Your Surgery

To ensure an optimal surgical experience and recuperation, it is best to schedule your surgery when you will be able to take sufficient time off of work or your normal routine.  As an out-of-town patient, you should build in time for travel, your in-person consultation and post-procedure downtime. Here are a few factors you should consider when booking a date for your surgery:

After the Surgery

After any surgical procedure, your body needs time to heal. Before you travel, you need to be sure that your recovery is progressing well and that there are no signs of complications. It is, therefore, recommended that you stay for 1-2 weeks in the Orange County area after your surgery. You may want to consider these tips:

Because services are provided, a hotel stay after surgery can be relaxing. You may want to discreetly alert the staff of the hotel that you will be recovering from a medical procedure and order your meals in advance. Some facial surgeries may require you to eat soft foods for a number of days. Be sure that the hotel can accommodate special requests.
