DESERT BLOOM PLASTIC SURGERY

Your Guide to Successful
Out of Town Surgery

The team at Desert Bloom Plastic Surgery is committed to offering you the safest and most personalized experience possible for your surgery. We have several options for those visiting from out of town who would like guidance in arranging the finest accommodations in the area for their recovery.

YOUR CONSULTATION

Prior to your video consultation, Dr. Wallin would appreciate taking photos so he can better understand your concerns. These photos are easily taken in a well-lit room with a solid color background with most smartphones. The following pictures are requested all in a vertical format:

  • Frontal view that includes your entire head down to your collar bones
  • Side profiles of each side with your head in a neutral position
  • Angled pictures at a 45 degree. Line up the tip of your nose with your pupils for easy alignment

Our team will schedule a video consultation for those from out of town. We will reserve about an hour to understand your concerns, provide you with useful information, and answer all of your questions. You will receive an email prior to the consultation with a link to our portal, where you can fill in your past medical history, medications, allergies, and more. Please do this before the video consultation so we can assure you are a good candidate for surgery and don’t need additional workup.

Scheduling Your Surgery

As part of your consultation, you will meet with our surgery coordinator who can schedule a surgery date for you. We will review the cost of surgery to include all the fees (surgeon, facility, and anesthesia) at that time. Full payments are due two weeks prior to your surgery. A deposit is also required to hold your surgery date before you make your full payment.

Where Should I Stay?

If you would like to make your own arrangements during your stay in St. George, we have discounted rates with a few local hotels. Let us know what you are looking for, and we can direct you to a hotel that offers special rates exclusively for our patients.

What Can I Do While in Southern Utah?

Depending on your chosen surgery, you will be able to do certain things that may brighten your day and help keep your spirits high. Dr. Wallin will guide you on your activity levels that are permissible. A good guide is to keep your heart rate normal- especially during the first week.

If you would like to get outside, many of our patients enjoy a scenic drive in close proximity to your accommodations. Most locations listed have entrance fees.
