Out of Town Patients

out of town patientsOut Of Town Patients

A number of Dr. Kessler’s patients make the decision to travel from another town, state or even country to have him perform their surgery of choice. When performing the surgery, Dr. Kessler takes the necessary steps to minimize bruising and swelling afterwards, so that patients who travel for the procedure are able to return home in a timely fashion. In most cases, patients can plan on returning home about a week after the procedure.

The staff at Kessler Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, California, is happy to help make arrangements with out-of-town patients for travel, postoperative care and sightseeing before the surgery.
