Out of Town Patients

Out of Town Facial Plastic Surgery Patients

Patients travel from across Florida, the United States, and Internationally to seek out Dr. Steiger’s expertise and have surgery and other procedures performed by him. Accordingly, this section was created to answer very common questions about what you need to know regarding a long-distance consultation process, the procedure and the after care.

Dr. Steiger and his staff strive to make your entire surgical experience go as smoothly as possible by coordinating out-of-town consultations, surgeries and follow-ups witin a compressed period of time. We work closely with all of our out-of-town patients to ensure that we are able to give and receive as much information well in advance of your visit to our plastic surgery office in Boca Raton, Florida.

It is advised that you fly in at least one day before the procedure day. This day will consist of meeting with Dr. Steiger and his staff during a scheduled appointment, completing all of the required forms, and taking pre-operative photographs.

Please be advised that surgical patients may need help in the early hours following surgery; therefore, it is strongly recommended that the patient have a companion at discharge from the surgery center.

Our office can also arrange your aftercare. You are required to have a companion following your procedure. The companion will take you back to your hotel and help take care of your post-surgical needs. We offer two levels of service: standard companion service with a non-licensed, non-medical person and a licensed, registered nurse. Generally speaking, for a healthy individual, standard companion service should be adequate. You may decline this service if you are traveling with a travel companion. Costs for companion/nurse services are extra, and you will be responsible to pay the individual who will take care of you directly. Also, if you elect to have a non-licensed, non-medical companion, you must sign a waiver stating that the individual is only present as an escort/companion and not providing medical services in any way.
The length of stay after surgery will vary depending on the procedure recommended to you.
