The appeal of traveling for cosmetic surgery is undeniable! Who wouldn't want to return from vacation feeling and looking refreshed and rejuvenated?
If you are thinking of traveling to Philadelphia for facial cosmetic surgery, join the many women and men like you from across the country and around the globe who have chosen Dr. Timothy M. Greco's practice.
Dr. Greco and his staff will work closely with you to ensure your experience is safe, comfortable, convenient, and successful.
Whether traveling from another state or another country, you must have an initial consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for cosmetic surgery.
The initial consultation and surgery plus recovery may be planned for separate visits to Philadelphia.
Occasionally, we may accept digital photos and a virtual consultation, but Dr. Greco may require to see the patient in person before scheduling any surgical procedures.
Most surgical procedures require that you complete lab work beforehand. Some patients prefer to fulfill this requirement at home, while others request that it be done in Philadelphia.
Our office staff can help you decide which option is best for you. If you choose to have your regular physician complete the lab work, we will provide you with comprehensive information that needs to be obtained before your surgery.
Your post-operative recovery must be well coordinated so you have comfortable accommodations, ample recovery time, and support.
Dr. Greco and his staff will help you determine how long you may need to stay in Philadelphia following surgery. Although this depends on a variety of factors, most patients stay between one to two weeks.
Once we have determined how long you should stay, you will need to reserve comfortable accommodations nearby. We have made special arrangements with the Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue and the Marriott Courtyard, which offer discounted room rates for Dr. Greco's patients.
Because having fun and staying busy can help recovery seem faster and easier, we encourage you to participate in non-strenuous outings or activities during your recovery period.
Catching up on your “to-watch” movie list or reading a good book is an excellent way to recover from your surgery.
The concierges at Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue or the Marriott Courtyard can help schedule dinner reservations or recommend relaxing daytime activities and shopping.
To prepare you for when you’ve been cleared to return home, Dr. Greco's staff will explain your recovery in detail, including:
- How soon you can return to work
- What to expect during the recovery period
- When to resume various activities
All patients traveling to Philadelphia for facial plastic surgery should have access to a family doctor at home that they can see in case of complications needing medical attention.
We also request that you provide us with your physician's name and contact details so Dr. Greco can contact them if necessary.
