An Out-Of-Town Patient Guide for Cosmetic Surgery Medical Tourism in Miami, Florida

If you’re looking to get cosmetic surgery done outside of your hometown, you might have a lot of questions. Traveling can be hectic and take a toll on you on its own, but traveling as an out-of-town cosmetic surgery patient to Miami might add to that stress.

We’ve created this ultimate out-of-town patient guide for patients who want to take advantage of cosmetic surgery tourism in Miami.

The Initial Consultation

Before any procedures can be done, patients traveling to Miami for plastic surgery need to have a first consultation with their plastic surgeon. This can be done virtually or through consultations which are face to face, depending on what’s easiest for the patient. 

This first meeting helps ensure everyone is on the same page and is also a really superb opportunity for you to ask your surgeon for any extra information they or their nursing staff have to give you, such as nearby places you can stay after your procedure.

We work with our out-of-town patients to be flexible with our initial consultation.

Booking and Preparing for Your Procedure

After the initial consultation, you’ll be contacted with available surgery dates. This may come with the need to place a deposit to ensure your surgery date. 

To ensure your adequate health, you may also be sent a laboratory request to complete before your procedure. These tests help clear you for surgery. This can be taken to a lab near you and completed 30 days before the surgery. 

Once you’ve chosen and booked a surgery date and been cleared for surgery, you can start to book the rest of the required flights and hotels necessary. You can always talk to the patient care consultant helping you book your procedure to ask them what recommendations they might have for accommodations.

Phone a Friend

We recommend having someone with you who can assist with transportation and care after the procedure. This can include anything from personal care and hygiene to meal preparation and prescription pick-up. Having this assistance is important for patients traveling to Miami for cosmetic surgery because it ensures that being in a strange town won’t set back their recovery.

When Can I Leave After an Out-of-Town Cosmetic Surgery?

After your procedure it’s recommended you wait a certain amount of time before flying and this depends on the process and how well you handled it. You can always talk to your surgeon for tailored departure times. We’ve included a general guideline for flying times after procedures:

  • Brazilian Butt Lift: 7-10 days
  • Tummy Tuck: 9-10 days
  • Liposuction: 3-4 days
  • Breast Procedures: 5-7 days
  • Eyelid Surgery: 5 days
  • Labiaplasty: 3 days
