Travelling for plastic surgery

Patient Query:

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).
