Travel for Surgery
There’s a growing trend in plastic surgery and it’s not a new anti-aging device or a new procedure. Rather, it’s more and more people traveling from their hometowns to seek treatment from the country’s premier plastic surgery specialists. It makes perfect sense. By flying to a center of excellence in a major city, you get state-of-the-art care and expert treatment while recuperating quietly and anonymously away from home.
Our surgeons have performed plastic surgery in Sacramento for patients from all across the United States and even from other countries. In recent years, patients from up and down the East Coast, the Pacific Northwest and Central America have come to Sacramento to take advantage of our expertise and our commitment to unsurpassed care.

What’s the “Fly-In” Process?
Our staff can assist you with your travel plans from start to finish. We can help you set up your itinerary and suggest local accommodations. Most patients book their stay for a week for smaller procedures, and 10 days for longer procedures.
We recommend you arrive at least 48 hours before your scheduled procedure to meet with your plastic surgeon, complete paperwork and get situated in your new surroundings. Prior to your visit, we will work with you to ensure any medical tests required can be accomplished through your local primary care doctor or local medical facilities.
We encourage you to travel with a friend or family member who can help take care of you after surgery and provide support while you heal; however, should that not be possible, we can recommend in-home care and support services to help you through every step of the process. We partner with several local hotels that are very convenient for our patients.
The first day after surgery, you will likely feel somewhat tired and groggy, so plan on getting plenty of rest. On that day, you will visit our office for a quick post-operative appointment with our medical staff to confirm that everything is healing as it should. By the third and fourth day, you should feel more rested and somewhat more energetic. Typically, a week after surgery, you will meet with your surgeon for another follow-up appointment and at that time it will be determined whether you are ready to return home or not.
What If Something Goes Wrong after Surgery?
An overwhelming majority of our plastic surgery patients have had a great experience because we are committed to safety, therefore making the entire process pleasant and gratifying. While in Sacramento, you will have continuous access to your doctor to handle any medical concerns and, once you return home, we can connect you with local medical resources should the need arise.
Flying in for an expert medical treatment is easier than ever. Most of our fly-in patients find the option offers multiple benefits. These patients will:
- Enjoy the opportunity to see a new area
- Relax and recover in privacy and anonymity, released from everyday stresses and demands
- Take advantage of the expertise of highly trained plastic surgeons committed to beautiful, natural results
We invite you to begin the process with the virtual consultation. Or call us at 916-983-9895 if you have questions. We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
