Out-of-Town Patient Guide

Many of our patients travel from other parts of the country for their cosmetic procedures.  Or staff is dedicated to assisting our out–of–town patients every step of the way to ensure their experience exceeds expectations!

While there are a few extra factors involved in traveling for cosmetic surgery, we hope to provide you with all the information you need to easily plan and prepare for your cosmetic procedure. 

Consultation Options

If you are interested in learning more about cosmetic surgery or would like to schedule an in person or virtual consultation with Dr. Beeson, please contact our office at 317-846-0846 or by fps@beeson.com

Customarily we see patients for consultation and then see them for their preoperative visit approximately two weeks prior to their procedure.  However, for patients who must travel longer distances, there is the option of scheduling a virtual consultation with Dr. Beeson. 

Virtual Consultation

While it is important to have a formal consultation face–to–face and a physical exam evaluation prior to establishing a formal doctor-patient relationship and prior to actually having your cosmetic procedure, this may be impractical for patients who must travel long distances. In those cases, patients have the option to have an initial virtual consultation with Dr. Beeson. If they elect to have cosmetic surgery, they obtain the necessary preoperative lab studies and medical clearance from their local medical doctor approximately two weeks prior to their scheduled procedure. We then see them the day prior to their surgery for a formal consultation and their pre–surgical visit. Surgery is then performed the following day.

If you would like to schedule a virtual consultation, please call our office at 317–846–0846 or click here!

We will be happy to arrange a time that is convenient for your schedule to talk with Dr. Beeson regarding your concerns and desires. In order to make the virtual consultation as informative as possible, we request that you complete a patient information form as well as provide photographs of your areas of concern for Dr. Beeson to review prior to your consultation. 

We recommend that you review the “Consultation” section of our website (place icon to take to consult section) for more information regarding how to analyze your face and information regarding submitting your photographs for review. We also recommend that you review our on–line Consultation book, paying particular attention to the procedures you are interested in. (icon linking to online consultation book)

Virtual consultations are usually scheduled in the evening and take approximately one hour. Following the consultation, Dr. Beeson will send you a written summary of your discussions along with his recommendations and specific costs for the procedures you discussed. One of our nurses will then contact you to answer any questions you might have and discuss scheduling options, if you so desire. 

Cosmetic surgery can be one of the most positive life-changing events over which you have control. But, it needs to be done at a time that fits well into your schedule, works for your budget, and when you feel comfortable with the doctor performing your surgery. We want to be sure that achieving your aesthetic goals works into your budget. If you choose, our staff is happy to work with you confidentially regarding various financing options available.

Preparing for Your Surgery and Recovery

Advanced planning is important prior to traveling for surgery. After scheduling, our nursing staff will contact you to review the “do’s” and “don’ts” prior surgery, provide you with the necessary laboratory requisitions and medication prescriptions, and assist you with your travel and accommodation requests.

Hotel Facilities

Over half of our patients come from outside of the Indianapolis. Our concierge staff are happy to assist you with logistical arrangements: from assisting you with hotel reservations to arranging for nursing services to assist you during your recovery care.

Many of our patients prefer to spend one or more days of their convalescence in one of the numerous hotels conveniently located near the surgical facilities we use. Most of our patients prefer one of the moderately priced “all suite” hotels. This allows the patient to have maximum peace and quiet, while at the same time providing more space and comfort for their caregivers. They also have small kitchen areas with refrigerators and large ice machines are conveniently located on the floors. The Residents Inn by Marriott is most highly rated by our patients.

Some patients and their family desire a “full service” hotel and prefer one located close to shopping and entertainment areas for family members.  The Sheraton Hotel at Keystone at the Crossing is our recommendation. The Keystone Crossing Fashion Mall is an upscale shopping mall which includes a Nordstrom’s, Sach’s Fifth Avenue as well as multiple eateries including The Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang’s, and Sullivan Steakhouse.

For those desiring to stay in downtown Indianapolis, the JW Marriott  and  the Conrad Hotel are our preferences.
