Traveling For Plastic Surgery

Dr. Amaka—a board-certified plastic surgeon in Nashville—has built a reputation as a trusted resource for plastic surgery knowledge, and patients from around the world travel to Nashville to seek out her skill and expertise. She is particularly well-known for her mommy restorations—also called mommy makeovers—which are designed to help women regain their figures and confidence after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

In order to best serve our traveling patients, Dr. Amaka and her team have compiled helpful information, tips, and resources to make the process as easy as possible. To learn more about what to expect from the consultation, treatment, and recovery process—as well as advice for planning your trip—please review the informative sections below. To begin your aesthetic transformation journey, we encourage you to contact Amaka Aesthetics today.

Amaka Aesthetics - Nashville Plastic Surgery Practice

Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultations

Dr. Amaka offers virtual consultations to make the plastic surgery process more accessible for those coming from outside of the Nashville area. These meetings offer you the opportunity to ask questions, explain your aesthetic goals to our team, and learn more about your procedure(s) of interest. During this meeting, usually through Zoom, Dr. Amaka will discuss and look at your areas of concern with you and come up with an individualized plan that meets your aesthetic desires. This consult is very similar to an in person consultation with the exception being it is not face to face.

Following your virtual consultation, our team will provide you with further information about pricing and help you schedule your surgery date.

Patients who are interested can also contact us about sending photos to Dr. Amaka’s team and obtaining a surgical plan ahead of time in situations where a prospective patient may want to hold a surgery date in advance.

Planning Your Trip to Amaka Aesthetics in Nashville

Once you have scheduled your surgery, our team can assist you in planning your trip to our Nashville office. Depending on your unique needs, we can recommend specific lodging options, transportation services, restaurants, and recreational activities you may be interested in during your stay. Nashville is a gorgeous and vibrant region, and many of our out-of-town patients enjoy the opportunity to explore the plethora of exciting things the area has to offer during their visits.

While we typically advise patients to plan to travel with a companion, we can help make postoperative care arrangements for those who will be arriving by themselves. If you have any questions or concerns about our office location or how to best arrange your stay, we welcome you to contact us.

Preparing For Your Procedure

Following your virtual consultation, we will help you schedule your surgery date and begin making arrangements for your visit. Our team is here to help with anything you may need to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible. During the lead-up to your surgery, our team will send you any necessary paperwork, and we can coordinate with a local provider should any lab work or other medical testing need to be done ahead of time.

We advise patients to arrive in Nashville at least one day before their planned surgery date. This allows us to schedule an in-person check-in where you can meet Dr. Amaka and your care team, review your treatment plan, discuss important recovery information, obtain your goodie bag of supplies, and ask any remaining questions you may have.

On the day of surgery, you will arrive at the facility at the designated time. From there, your care team will provide further instructions. Most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, so you will likely return to your local accommodations the same day to begin your recovery. If you are traveling to Nashville by yourself, our team can help arrange nursing care for you, or we can potentially arrange to have you stay overnight in a hospital setting.This is arranged on a case by case basis.

Recovery and Follow-Up Appointments After Plastic Surgery

We ask that our traveling patients plan to stay in the Nashville area for at least 1-2 weeks after surgery, depending on the nature of the procedure(s) being performed. This allows our team to monitor your recovery and ensure the healing process is progressing smoothly. You will typically meet with Dr. Amaka a few days after surgery for your first postoperative check-in, at which point she can provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and give you clearance to drive or fly home.

Dr. Amaka has extensive experience working with patients who have traveled for plastic surgery, and she is continuously innovating new ways to make the process smoother and more effective. From drainless tummy tuck techniques to concierge after care and comfortable, high-quality compression garments, she strives to offer her patients the best possible experience from start to finish.

In most cases, the majority of your post-operative visits can be scheduled virtually. Ideally, Dr. Amaka prefers to schedule at least one in-person follow-up around 4-6 months after surgery, but she understands that this is not always possible for every patient. In cases where a complication or concern arises that cannot be addressed virtually, our team can help connect you with a more local provider who can provide an in-person assessment.
