Travelling for plastic surgery
- Posted on: Aug 14 2009
i just have a couple of questions. if i got breast augmentation done in Utah how long would i have to stay for? would i have to come back for a check up? and if anything went wrong, such as they didn’t drop of any other complications how do you handle that? [I am from] Hawaii… so its really out of town ha but thats good. My main concern was not having to come all the way back for the check ups
Dr Yates Response:
Generally I would have you stay in town for a couple of days. I would see you the day after and the usual f/u schedule is 3 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year. The 3 week appt. is the most important. If there are problems, I may need to see you more frequently although this would be extremely unusual. Although I always prefer that you keep all of the appointments, in reality many out of town patients email me their update for the 3 month and 6 month visits to save a visit. (there is not much more than a quick check of scar and implant position for those visits).
