The Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery Transformation Vacation

August 23, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
People are traveling in greater numbers for plastic surgery, and many are coming to Los Angeles to have their treatments. One center in Beverly Hills caters to these sorts of traveling clients. A growing number of people in today's society prefer to have plastic surgery procedures at facilities far from their homes. They are seeking out "destination" locations where they can wrap a little shopping and sightseeing around their recovery time.

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Lloyd Krieger, M.D., the founder and medical director of Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, introduces a "transformation vacation" to help jump-start the recovery process after they undergo plastic surgery in Beverly Hills.

According to Dr. Krieger, who has been featured in such media as Fortune, The New York Times, Access Hollywood, and other media outlets, roughly 25 percent of his patients drive or fly in from locales at least two hours away. Many come from Northern Californian cities, while others from such states as Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Utah, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and abroad including Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada, and Saudi Arabia. "They are choosing to spend those first crucial days of recovery in a quiet hotel or other facility where they can get the care they need, but also take in what we have to offer here as a get-away city."

The Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery Visiting Patients Program includes "concierge" style services to help 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 health clubs, beauty salons and fashion retailers where they can get help starting new workout routines or re-vamping their wardrobes or skincare regimens. Those amenities, coupled with the Visiting Patients Program, make it possible to help turn what can be sometimes long and tedious recovery process into a life-transforming adventure. Krieger reports that many patients come for his well-known Beverly Hills tummy tuck and Los Angeles breast augmentation procedures.

The advantages of an out-of-town recovery presents and appealing option for some 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 have begin adjusting to physical changes before going home, both important facets of the healing process.

Krieger stresses recovery from even the most minor procedures takes longer than just a week or two, and that additional recovery time is always involved once a patient gets back home. "I am a strong believer that if my patients have a positive recovery experience they will enjoy their final results more and they will heal faster," says Krieger. He notes that this holds for all plastic surgey procedures, including Los Angeles liposuction
