Beverly Hills, a premier destination is the ideal location for combining a relaxing getaway with a beautifying plastic surgery procedure.

Following your surgery, you will relax and recover in privacy and comfort away from the stress of your daily routine. After a few days or rest, you will be ready to enjoy some of the attractions in Southern California.
Our goal is to make your trip comfortable and as hassle-free as possible. Our patient coordinator will work with you to schedule your surgery and assist you with hotel arrangements, pre-operative care, and post-operative care.
Pre-operative and Post-operative Medical Workup:
Once you have decided to undergo surgery, we will start your pre-operative laboratory work and medical clearances completed by your doctor or specialist in your hometown, if needed. This process may take 2-3 weeks. We will also plan your post-operative recovery in advance. We like to take close care of our patients and will plan to have you stay locally for a few days in Beverly Hills to ensure that you recover completely before heading home.
We encourage patients traveling from out of state, if it is feasible, to bring a loved one with them to enjoy their mini-vacation together after surgery. This person should be a capable adult who can care for you after surgery. If you decide to come on your own, the attention you will receive from our staff will ensure that you never feel alone.
Dr. Obeng will see you the day before your surgery for a pre-surgical evaluation and to review your procedure and answer all your questions. You will stay in the area for a few days after surgery for your post-operative visits. In the event that you require any medical attention returning home, Dr. Michael K. Obeng will recommend you to a local physician for a check-up. MiKO Plastic Surgery also has a close relationship with a special post-operative caregiver who has over 20 years of experience in taking care of cosmetic surgery patients and in-home medical assistance.

She will be able to suggest post-operative care accommodations and hotels nearby to ensure you are comfortable and taken care of.
Once you have planned and scheduled your procedure, there are several aspects that must be addressed in preparation for your visit to Los Angeles. First, if you have any medical issues or if you are over the age of 40, it may be required that you to get several routine blood tests and medical clearance from a doctor to ensure you are strong enough and healthy enough to undergo cosmetic surgery. Standard medications for post-surgical recovery will be prescribed and these should be picked up at least one day before surgery. Time permitting; it may be easiest to fill your prescriptions in Los Angeles once you arrive. This should be worked into your overall schedule in advance. Even if you have your prescription filled prior to arrival, you will need to arrive at least one full day prior to your schedule procedure. Typically, patients need at least a week of recovery time before they return to normal activities and before they return home. The exact time recommended for your stay depends on how far away you live from Los Angeles and the procedures you are undergoing. Recovery time should be discussed with Dr. Obeng and your patient care coordinator.
