Out of Town Patients
Guide for Out of Town & Fly-In Patients
At Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery, we want our patients to have an enjoyable, memorable trip to the Ponte Vedra Beach area. We encourage our patients and their accompanying family and friends to take advantage of the many attractions and beautiful beaches in the Ponte Vedra Beach area.
We understand that the decision to undergo a cosmetic surgical procedure away from home may raise some important questions and concerns about logistics, including transportation, lodging, dining and aftercare. Rest assured that at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery, our Patient Coordinator can make arrangements for you.
We can assist with:
- Hotel Accommodations
- Dining Recommendations
- Transportation from the airport while you’re here
- After Care support
At Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery, we diligently work with our patients to make the consultation process as comfortable and convenient as possible. We understand that many patients feel that distance from our office may make the consultation process more challenging. Our out of town patients are encouraged to consult with Dr. Roberto Garcia via electronic means such as, FaceTime or Skype.
Once the patient has made the decision to undergo a procedure, Dr. Roberto Garcia will then have an in-person consultation 1-2 days prior to the scheduled procedure. The consultation process will consist of a full facial evaluation and a discussion with the patient to develop a surgical plan. In addition, Dr. Roberto Garcia will review the patient’s medical history.
Depending on the type of the procedure recommended, our Patient Coordinator may refer the patient to a local primary care physician who will perform a full medical clearance. Importantly, all consent forms and after care instructions will be reviewed at this time as well.
Day of Procedure
On the day of the procedure, the patient will report to our fully accredited surgical center or our office conveniently located in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. After the procedure, the patient will be accompanied by their private sitter to the recovery cottage for the remainder of the evening or arrangements will be made for transportation to a nearby hotel.
The morning following the procedure, Dr. Roberto Garcia will make a house call visit to the recovery cottage to examine the patient. Subsequent visits to his office will be arranged in advance as well.
Dr. Roberto Garcia also provides his patients with his cell phone number in case they have any questions related to their healing and after care.
Dr. Roberto Garcia will recommend that his patients stay the night at our recovery cottage the first night after surgery. A private sitter will transport the patient from our surgical center to the recovery cottage. The sitter will remain with the patient the entire night overseeing their care.
Our patient sitters are highly experienced in caring for our patients. They are intimately familiar with Dr. Garcia’s instructions and the specific needs of our patients.
