Medical Tourism: Combining Plastic Surgery With A Florida Vacation
Have you considered plastic surgery but don’t have access to top quality surgeons where you live? Or is the cost of plastic surgery in your area too limiting? The lack of quality plastic surgeons and the high costs of plastic surgery in certain locations of the U.S. and throughout the world are just two of the many reasons for the booming trend of medical tourism in Florida. So, what is medical tourism? Here is what you should know:
What Is Medical Tourism?
Medical tourism is a rising trend in which patients travel both domestically and internationally to receive medical and surgical care. Medical tourism allows patients to receive the same, or better, quality care they would have access to in their hometown. Better quality care is just one reason patients choose to travel for medical care. Patients may also choose medical tourism to access more affordable care or procedures that are not available to them in their area. Proving that the state has more to offer than amusement parks and sunny beaches, Florida has become a popular destination for patients from around the world seeking world-class plastic surgery procedures.

Dr. Rieger Makes The Process Of Achieving Stunning Results Easy For Patients Around The World
There are unique considerations that need to be made when you will travel from out of town for your plastic surgery procedure. Through Dr. Rieger’s experience working with patients throughout the U.S. and from around the world, he has developed a process that makes it easy for patients who are traveling to have the best experience possible. The staff at Hyde Park Cosmetic Surgery Center will work with you every step of the way to ensure your travel and surgical experience are safe, successful, and convenient.
The process begins with a virtual consultation with Dr. Rieger. We can arrange virtual consultations via a phone conversation or video conference such as Skype. During this consultation, our staff and Dr. Rieger will get a better understanding of your goals and expectations. Dr. Rieger will also use pictures you have sent prior to the consultation to discuss the procedures right for you. Once you have agreed on the procedures that best suit your needs and Dr. Rieger has determined you are a good candidate for surgery, our patient coordinator will help you schedule your procedure, review fees, and make suggestions for post-operative care accommodations at nearby hotels. We recommend our patients arrive to Tampa at least 48 hours prior to your surgery date to meet the doctor and have an in-person evaluation. Patients will typically need to remain in Tampa for at least one week of recovery time before returning home. The total time you will need for recovery varies based on the procedures you select and your specific needs.
