When it makes sense to travel for plastic surgery
You might be wondering how and why a candidate would elect to travel to another town to undergo a cosmetic procedure.
The simple truth is that thanks to the power of the internet, consulting with a prospective client has never been easier – even if they’re located 700km away!
Here are some simple tips to ensure you get the most from your plastic surgeon, especially if you’re travelling.
Take advantage of your free information session
Cairns is pleased to offer prospective patients a FREE and confidential chat with one of our nurses.
This conversation can happen over the phone or via Skype, and during it, we learn all about your needs and expectations, and help you understand which procedure(s) may be right for you.
Bring along a trusted friend or family member
It’s critical that especially in the first few days following surgery you have someone to help you out, even with the smallest of tasks like bathing or eating.
A trusted friend or family member should accompany you and stay with you for the duration of your trip.
Spend adequate time in Cairns
When travelling for surgery, you should ensure you get adequate time off work to get the recovery process off to a great start.
That may mean planning a longer trip than you’d anticipated to allow for follow-up appointments and so as to not compromise your recovery in its earliest stages.
This is NOT an opportunity for a “fly-in, fly-out” procedure.
