I am planning a vacation and would like my procedure done before my vacation. How do I decide the correct time?
Frequently, the idea of a nice vacation is a catalyst for seeking consultation regarding cosmetic surgical
or non-surgical procedures. Every patient is different. Deciding the correct timing prior to or after a
vacation is best may in a one-on-one consultation with a plastic surgeon who is certified by the
American Board of Plastic Surgery. Factors that can affect recommendations include the type of
procedures or the procedures that are performed, the patient’s medical and surgical history, medications
and the degree of change that the surgery will affect. Other factors that frequently come into play
include the length of the vacation, time and mode of travel and the location of the planned vacation.
