Traveling to a Wellness Center in Los Angeles from Abroad
Not all of the postoperative patients we see at our wellness center in Los Angeles are native to California. In fact, not all of them are from the United States. Occasionally, Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness will see patients from all over the world who have traveled to LA to have procedures performed by renowned surgeons.
We all know that traveling, especially internationally, can be tough. Traveling after cosmetic surgery has the potential to be even tougher. If you’re planning to travel to the US to have your procedure done, we can offer some advice on making your trip easier when you book your stay at our wellness center in Los Angeles.
Make Plans in Advance
The first piece of advice we have to offer is a pretty good tip for daily life, let alone traveling for cosmetic surgery: make sure you thoroughly plan ahead. International travel is complicated enough as it is, so when you take surgery into account – not to mention recovery – you need to know what you’re doing.
Plan every part of your trip, from the flight, to where you’ll stay before and after your procedure and your trip back. Think about any contacts you might have, or ways to easily contact friends and family to let them know if you need help – or just how you’re doing.
Get All Your Paperwork Ready
Passports, boarding passes, travel documents, visitor visas, phone numbers and contact details for your surgeon, hotel and our wellness center in Los Angeles are just some of the paperwork you’ll need. It’s a good idea to bring any medical information that you have access to, in order for your surgeon and your recovery staff to have it on hand if they need it.
Travel is stressful, and surgery is even more so. Putting the two of them together is likely to just amplify them, and as much as our wellness center in Los Angeles is dedicated to comfort, it’s not quite the same as home. When you’re packing, bring some small home comforts with you that you know will help you relax, and make your recovery easier.
Careful of Complications
No one especially wants to talk about the potential complications of surgery, but it’s important to be ready for it. Even the simplest procedures carry a risk, so planning for it when you’re abroad is vital. Make sure family and friends know where you are before and after your surgery, and how they can get in touch with you.
Giving their contact information to your surgeon, as well as your recovery center, is a great idea. You also need to communicate any concerns clearly with your surgeon and the recovery center staff.
Relax and Enjoy Your Trip!
For all the stress of traveling and undergoing a cosmetic procedure, the most important thing is that you enjoy your trip! Traveling is one of the great pleasures of life, and whatever the reason you’re doing it – make the most of it!
