out of town

Dr. Hayduke's reputation and word-of-mouth referrals from patients around the United States and overseas lead to our proficiency in accommodating out of town clients. It is not unusual for certain highly selective cosmetic surgery patients to travel significant distances to find the "right" plastic surgeon. Nowadays clients may quickly and easily travel across the United States to seek out the level of services they desire. The decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is a very personal and private matter. Not everyone around you may ever understand your decision. You may not want to be unintentionally seen with facial bruising or stitches by members of your close community in the early post-operative period. Even if you live in Southern California, you may want to "get lost" for awhile or go "on a short vacation" while truly undergoing and recuperating from cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Hayduke's practice offers out of town clients the choice of having their surgery and recuperating either in the Beverly Hills area or the Palm Springs area. The Beverly Hills area has (arguably) always been the premier location for undergoing cosmetic plastic surgery in the entire world. The Palm Springs office is also very popular among our out of state and international clients since it provides an exceptional location to recuperate from cosmetic procedures in a retreat-like atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. For high-profile actors and actresses from Los Angeles, it has been commonplace ever since the earliest days of Hollywood to seek sanctuary in the luxury resorts of the Palm Springs area. This is also a great location to recuperate from elective cosmetic surgery. Visit www.inglesideinn.com and click on both "celebrities" and "recuperation" to get a flavor of what we mean. Our offices offer a clandestine (VIP) entrance that allows discrete access directly to our private consultation rooms, bypassing our formal waiting area. You must contact our office coordinator in advance to arrange entrance via this route. We make every effort to appropriately accommodate out-of-town and high-profile clientele when strict anonymity is required.

Initial contact:

You may send a letter or email of the description of your particular requests, past cosmetic surgeries (with dates) and specific expectations. If you had previous cosmetic surgery on the area of current interest, please include a copy/scan of the "operative dictation" for that procedure if possible. Please mail/email multiple photographs of the areas of concern that are of reasonable quality. If you are sending body photographs, please do not include your face or anything else identifiable (tattoo, jewelry, etc) in the actual photographs for privacy reasons. Please make sure the photographs are truly in focus and clearly depict the areas of interest from multiple angles. We will then contact you to discuss your situation in detail and possibly arrange a phone consultation with the doctor. If we feel that your expectations are realistic, we may accept you as an out-of-town client. There are certain advantages and disadvantages involved with traveling out-of-town for your cosmetic surgery. Not all cosmetic procedures can be offered to out-of-town clients.

In-person consultation:

Arrangements are made well in advance of your arrival for a surgical date, time, recuperation period, etc. - however, you are still required to undergo a detailed in-person consultation with Dr. Hayduke. By this time, your pre-opertaive "physical exam" and age appropriate "medical work-ups" will have been completed by your local primary care physician (OB/GYN, family physician, or internist). If you do not have a primary care physician, we will help locate one for you. Our office coordinator will work closely with you on these issues. You will be required to stay a certain number of post-operative days in Beverly Hills or in the Palm Springs area depending upon your particular procedure.
