We welcome out of town patients! A growing number of Dr. Meger’s patients fly in from all over the world for plastic surgery. If you are considering traveling to the Phoenix and Scottsdale area to have a procedure done with Dr. Meger, and don’t live in the area you may be interested in learning more about our process for out of town patients.
If you’re unable to travel to Phoenix for your consultation, we recommend a virtual consultation. This consists of speaking with our experienced staff, and also eventually with the doctor, himself. We will make the scheduling process as easy as possible for you. We will be able to plan your entire procedure via telephone and email.
We are available Monday through Friday, from 9:00am to 5:00pm. To fill out the new patient the forms for your consultation please click here.
Scheduling Surgery in Phoenix
If you elect to travel to Phoenix from out of town to have a procedure, there are a few important factors you will want to keep in mind. In addition to the initial new patient interview (which must be completed before scheduling), patients must arrive at least a weekday prior to surgery in order to have a pre-operative appointment. Another adult must accompany patients in order to provide care for at least the first 24 hours after surgery. Two weeks prior to surgery, patients will have a phone pre-operative consultation to go over preparing for surgery, consent forms and ordering any necessary post-surgical garments. A packet of informational forms and other necessary documents will be mailed to the patient prior to the pre-operative phone consultation. Finally, payment is due in full two weeks prior to surgery. Please click here to learn more about our payment options.
Patients are discharged from surgery, same day, directly to the hotel they are staying in. Depending upon the procedure, patients should plan to stay in Phoenix for up to a week in order to be seen by Dr. Meger for post-operative appointments. Subsequent follow up appointments up to the first year are included in the cost and usually occur at six weeks, six months and one year.
Here are some local hotel options; for other hotel options in the area please contact our patient care coordinator.
