Cosmetic Surgery Travel
Port St. Lucie
We welcome patients who travel from outside our immediate area!
In order to make things as easy as possible, your initial assessment and goals can be identified by sending digital photos directly to Dr. Porcaro: [email protected].
Kindly have your photos taken so that they demonstrate the area(s) you wish to have addressed. The photos you send must be consistent with the photos that appear in our web site photo gallery. Please duplicate all the various images on the photo gallery so as to show your area(s) of concern in multiple views. You will also need to forward a copy of our Patient Registration Form.
Sending good quality photos is essential.
You will receive a return email with Dr. Porcaro’s preliminary recommendations.
Depending on the underlying state of your health, you may need to undergo a pre-op assessment by your family physician, who may be involved with your care once you return home. You may need screening laboratory tests which are best obtained before leaving home so they are available before you arrive for your procedure in Port St Lucie, Florida.
The extent of the procedure(s) you desire, coupled with your age and underlying health will dictate how much time you will need to remain in the area after your procedure. Hair transplant patients typically remain one night; tummy tuck patient may spend 7-10 days in an area hotel.
You will need to be seen by Dr. Porcaro prior to your procedure and at least once after your procedure (more often if you undergo a larger procedure), until it is safe for you to return home.
We will be glad to help coordinate for your recuperation in one of our select hotels that provide discounted rates for our patients who visit us from out of town.
We also look forward to helping you select non-strenuous activities and places to eat and shop while you recover and enjoy “Sunny Florida”!
