    /24-7PressRelease/ - BEVERLY HILLS, CA, March 02, 2007 - As the only plastic surgery center on world-famous Rodeo Drive, Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery sits at the nation's most prestigious address for cosmetic surgery. As such, it is no surprise that patients travel from around the world to obtain the renowned services offered at the elegant California plastic surgery center.

In the past year patients have traveled to the center for plastic surgery in los angeles from England, Germany, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, Senegal, and Canada. They also came from such Northern California locations as San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Santa Rosa, and Modesto, as well from Washington State, Arizona, Nevada, Mississippi, Texas, Alabama, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts. Others drove to the Beverly Hills plastic surgery center from San Diego, Bakersfield, Barstow, Riverside, and other points a several-hour car ride away.

With this number of visitors, it is no wonder that Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery has been featured in such international media as Elle Canada, Chololate Siene magazine in Japan, England's highest circulation newspaper The Daily Mail, and Great Britain's Grazia Magazine. Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery's services were also featured on TeleFrancais 1, the continent's most-watched TV network. More information on recent media coverage can be found at or

Traveling for surgery worked out very well for these patients, but it is important to plan ahead. To make things as safe and smooth as possible, Medical Director Dr. Lloyd Krieger and his staff have created a program to coordinate the process. They call their innovative program The Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery Transformation Vacation.

California Plastic Surgeon Dr. Krieger explains that The Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery Transformation Vacation includes several steps:

--First determine if someone is a candidate for plastic surgery. We provide as much plastic surgery information as possible before the patient's trip. Sometimes we can schedule surgery on the same trip. Other times it works best to schedule a different trip in the future for surgery. On occasion we use digital photos to begin the process, but we must always meet our patients before the day we do a procedure. We cannot simply do a breast augmentation in California on someone who just got off the plane from New Zealand!

--The post-surgery recuperation must be coordinated. Sometimes this means arranging a night or two at a specialized recovery center staffed by nurses. Other times it means booking a comfortable nearby hotel. Our staff has a lot of experience arranging this around different needs and tastes.

--We must plan how long to stay in town after surgery. This varies by the procedure performed and the person's age and other factors. For people flying into town this is usually between five and fourteen days.

--We take time educating traveling patients about the nature of their recovery including how long to take off from work, when to resume various activities, what to expect in terms of body changes, and reaction to the surgery. We want to minimize surprises upon returning home.

--We make sure our patients to have access to a family doctor at home, so if something needs evaluation they have someone to visit and with whom our surgeon can speak.

--We encourage our traveling patients to plan on doing some non-strenuous activities while in town. Having fun helps recovery go faster and easier. Our staff works as a concierge to make plans for restaurants, daytime activities, and shopping so the trip becomes a vacation as well as a surgery experience.

Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery's Transformation Vacation provides a structured program so people can come to Beverly for their California cosmetic surgery and have the safest possible experience - while also showing them a good time as out-of-town guests. Some of the most popular procedures people travel for include Beverly Hills liposuction or California liposuction, breast augmentation in Beverly Hills, and Beverly Hills tummy tuck.
