ARRANGING YOUR PLASTIC SURGERY IN PHILADELPHIA

If you are considering facial plastic surgery in Philadelphia, you should contact the offices of Dr. Jonathan Pontell. His friendly patient coordinators will help you determine how many times you will need to travel to Philadelphia, and for how long you should plan to stay. In many cases, patients need to visit Philadelphia only once as all pre-surgical consultations can be completed online and over the phone. If this is the case, Dr. Pontell might ask you to send a series of photos taken at specific angles, as well as various medical forms. By evaluating this information, Dr. Pontell might create a provisional treatment plan and schedule your surgery.

TRAVELING TO PHILADELPHIA FOR SURGERY

Dr. Pontell usually recommends that his patients arrive in Philadelphia several days before the surgery day. This allows Dr. Pontell to meet his patients in person, conduct unhurried consultations, perform medical evaluations and exams, and confirm the treatment plan. Many surgical procedures can be performed under local anesthesia, and time in surgery might range from 1-4 hours. After this time, patients are usually allowed to return to their hotel rooms. Dr. Pontell and his staff remain in close contact with their patients during the immediate post-surgery period to ensure that the recovery is proceeding as planned.

Dr. Pontell meets with his patients several times after surgery to remove any stitches and surgical dressings, and to evaluate patients’ progress. Although most patients can return home within days after their treatments, many choose to remain in Philadelphia for several days in order to explore this exciting locale and enjoy a relaxing vacation. Dr. Pontell’s patient coordinators can help visiting patients plan their vacations by offering restaurant and entertainment venue recommendations.

AFTER YOUR FACIAL COSMETIC SURGERY

As a dedicated facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jonathan Pontell offers long-term care for all of his patients. He remains in contact with his out-of-town patients by phone or email. In addition to post-surgical follow-ups scheduled at appropriate intervals, Dr. Pontell is also available to see his patients if they have any concerns or questions. Often, visiting facial cosmetic surgery patients return several years later for additional facial enhancement procedures.
