Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery Named #1 Destination for Plastic Surgery Travel

December 16, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, located on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, has become a magnet for people traveling for plastic surgery. Recognizing its innovative programs and position as leader in the area, the travel web site iExplore recently ranked the Center as the #1 destination for plastic surgery travel, both in North America and the world.

According to medical director Dr. Lloyd Krieger, roughly 25 percent of his patients drive or fly in from locales at least two hours away. Many come from Northern California, and from such states as Alabama, Mississippi, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and abroad including England, Germany, New Zealand, Korea, Canada, Ivory Coast, and Saudi Arabia among others. "They are choosing to spend those first crucial days of recovery in a quiet facility where they get the care they need, but also take in what we have to offer as a get-away city."

Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery includes "concierge" services to help visiting patients coordinate hotel or facility accommodations, make reservations or book excursions and shopping trips. Krieger's practice also offers other services that connect patients with Rodeo Drive businesses, such as beauty salons and fashion retailers, where they can get help re-vamping their wardrobes or skincare regimens. Those amenities make it possible to help turn what might be a tedious recovery process into a life-transforming adventure.

Out-of-town recovery presents an appealing option for patients who may not have the luxury to create a quiet setting back home, due to children or other obligations. While away they have time to take in the immediate effects of their surgery and begin adjusting to physical changes, both important facets of healing from such procedures as tummy tuck. Krieger stresses recovery from even minor procedures takes longer than just a week or two, and recovery time is always involved once a patient gets back home. "I am a believer that if patients have a positive recovery experience they will enjoy their final results more and will heal faster," says Krieger.

About Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery: Nestled next to Chanel, Dior and Tiffany, Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery is the only plastic surgery center on Rodeo Drive. The posh 5,000 square foot facility looks more like a boutique than a doctor's office. This center specializes in breast augmentation and rhinoplasty.

The on-site Plastic Surgery surgery center is accredited by AAAHC and Medicare. The full-sized operating and recovery rooms suites are equipped with the latest equipment to provide the best patient care possible. "We designed our center to create what I call the Four Seasons treatment," Krieger concludes. "Because cosmetic surgery is elective, people are looking for a first-class experience, and that's what we offer."
