At Elite Plastic Surgery, our staff is dedicated to making your trip as smooth as possible. 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
For your virtual consultation with Dr. Salama, you will need to send in your pictures via email for Dr. Salama to review. We typically ask patients to provide four full body pictures: front, both sides, and rear. Please email all inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include any medical conditions and medications you are currently taking.
Once Dr. Salama has reviewed your pictures, one of our patient coordinators will respond within three business days. The patient coordinator will discuss your procedure with you and answer any specific questions or concerns you may have regarding the procedure per Dr. Salama’s recommendations. The patient coordinator will also provide you with a price quote and financing options available.
Once you have decided to move forward with your procedure, you will need to discuss available surgery dates with your patient coordinator. 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 to 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 a preoperative clearance form with your surgical package. 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 for your 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.
