Las Vegas is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the US and around the world. Cosmetic surgery patients from out of town often choose this destination to combine their procedure with a relaxing and fun vacation.
However, the key to success lies in choosing the right plastic surgeon for your out of town surgical procedure who has the skill and experience to help you achieve your aesthetic goals in a safe and sustainable manner. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides cosmetic and reconstructive procedures to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.
It would be best if you can travel to Las Vegas to meet Dr. Richards and his team prior to your cosmetic surgery. This will provide an opportunity for a comprehensive, in-person consultation that will enable you to make a well-considered decision about your surgery.
However, if you are traveling from afar, it may not be feasible for you to visit separately for a pre-surgery consultation. In this situation, Dr. Richards will have a phone and email based consultation with you. You will have to send your patient forms, medical history, and photographs of your areas of concern to the surgeon’s office.
The patient coordinator at the office will assist you in this process and help you have a successful and productive consultation with Dr. Richards. You should clarify any doubts and concerns you may have at this time, and then schedule your surgery date once you have made up your mind to go ahead with the proposed surgical plan.
Traveling with a Companion
It is always a good idea to travel with a companion if you plan to undergo a major plastic surgery procedure at Dr. Bryson Richards’ practice. After your surgery is completed, you will need a responsible person to drive you back to your hotel safely from the surgery center. Having a family member or friend assist you in the first 24 hours after your surgery will be ideal.
Planning Your Stay in Vegas
You should make your travel arrangements well in time after your surgery has been scheduled. Consider arriving in Las Vegas at least a day before your surgery so that you can acclimatize to the new place and feel completely at ease for your surgery.
Dr. Richards will discuss the estimated recovery period with you during your initial consultation. You should accordingly plan your stay for a few days in Las Vegas for post-operative recovery. Seek guidance from the patient coordinator at the surgeon’s office for your transport and hotel bookings.
In general, patients may require a post-surgical stay in Vegas for five to seven days for these procedures:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Brest Implant Revision
- Breast Implant Removal
- Tummy Tuck
The stay may be slightly longer for procedures such as mommy makeover plastic surgery.
