CALL US FOR A CONSULTATION
Out of Town Cosmetic Patients Miami
We have tailored our practice, staff, and protocols to specifically accommodate out of town patients. From the moment you call us to schedule your surgery, to your last appointment; our staff is knowledgeable in making your surgery stay as comfortable as possible. Our patients come from as far as Europe, Australia, and Asia. Please ask any of our staff members with assistance in lodging, travel, post operative caretakers, recovery centers, and transportation. Being that our office is conveniently located 15 minutes from Ft. Lauderdale International airport, there are numerous accommodations in our surrounding area. The most convenient way to have your consultation with Dr. Salama is via virtual consultation. Once you have decided you would like Dr. Salama to be your surgeon, please do request your out of town procedure to package. This will include all of the necessary information to prepare for surgery, various hotels and lodging accommodation, as well as your required medical clearance documents.
At Elite Plastic Surgery, our staff is dedicated in making your trip as smooth as possible. Our patients have traveled from all over the world including Europe, South America, Asia, and as far as Australia. We understand the stress in traveling, yet alone traveling for surgery. If you do have any questions, please do reach out to any of our staff members, and they will be glad to assist you.
Going About the Initial Consultation
|There are usually two ways to have a consult with Dr. Salama. Either a patient will fly in to have a live consultation, or as most patients, they will send in their pictures, and have email correspondence.|
|If it’s possible for you to see Dr. Salama in live for a consultation, we will certainly make your appointment a priority. During that consultation, you will go through your desired procedure, and discuss any specific questions or concerns you may have regarding the procedure. You will then see one of our patient coordinators to discuss price and financing options. You will be provided a price quote as well as specific information of your surgery so that you can make as much of an informed decision as possible.|
|If flying in for your consultation is not possible, we have had tremendous success with email consultations. We typically ask the patient to provide four pictures: front, both sides, and rear pictures, please make sure they are full body pictures. Please include any medical conditions and medications you are currently taking. One of our patient coordinators will respond within three business days. Please email all inquiries to email@example.com|
|Once you have decided to move forward with your procedure, you will need to discuss with your patient coordinator available surgery dates. Being that Dr. Salama is one of the most highly requested plastic surgeons in the US, surgical dates are very limited. We request a 10% NON-refundable deposit to secure a surgery date. Please make sure to arrive
the day prior for your preoperative appointment.
|Once you have secured your surgery date, preparations will need to be made in order to assure you are cleared for surgery. We will send with your surgical package a preoperative clearance form. This blood work needs to be completed at about 30 days prior to your surgery. Depending on your age and health, certain additional exams will need to be completed.
Please request you physician to fax over the results to 305-933-4733. Dr. Salama and head nurse will review to make sure everything is accurate for your safety.
|Travel preparations need to be made with anticipation. In order to avoid the stress of planning all aspects such as lodging, airports, caretaker, and transportation, we have provided a list of hotels that we currently work with for your convenience. Most patients fly into Fort Lauderdale Int’l Airport (FLL) due to its location and convenience. If a
family member is not flying in with you, please notify the office so that they can arrange a caretaker for you (patient financial responsibility). A caretaker can assist you in driving you from the surgery location to the recovering location, driving you to your follow up doctor visits, prepare meals and drinks, general shopping and grocery shopping, run errands such as prescription pick up, perform hygiene and personal care, including bathing, grooming and toileting, assist with walking, dressing, provide companionship and emotional support.
