Bednar Cosmetic Surgery is conveniently located 2 miles from the heart of Charlotte’s downtown area and is located 20 minutes from Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
We will be more than happy to help you in planning your trip to see us. We recommend that you call our office to find out about availability of specific dates for your consultation or procedure. Surgery schedules change daily and without a 50% deposit we cannot guarantee that specific date will be available. You can email Dr. Bednar at email@example.com, detailing the procedure of interest and include photographs of the areas of concern. Front and side views are typically the most effective views in order for Dr. Bednar to make an assessment. Upon receipt of photographs, we will contact you to set up either a Skype or phone consultation. Our Skype address is bednarcosmetic. Please include your age, height, weight and any medications/supplements you are taking. Every male over the age of 40, and female over the age of 50 will require full medical clearance. Our office will provide all pertinent medical clearance paperwork before surgery. This clearance must be received by our office prior to patients traveling to Charlotte.
Our office will also assist you in making local arrangements if needed. Dr. Bednar has arrangements with local hotels that are within a 5 mile radius to the office and that can accommodate recovering patients. Before making hotel reservations, please call the office and inform us of hotel name and location.
As a certified AAAASF facility, we require that all patients have a caretaker for the first night of surgery. Patients may bring their own caretaker (friend or family member-does not have to be a medical professional) or we will be happy to refer them to an outside service for an additional cost.
Dr. Bednar prefers that patients arrive 1-2 days prior to surgery. This will allow Dr. Bednar and our staff to meet with the patient in person and complete the in-office exam and all pre-op paperwork. You should allow sufficient time in Charlotte for your recovery. Recovery depends on extent of surgery. In general, most patients are able to travel 3-7 days following surgery.
Your Initial Consultation
Patients can either call the office directly or email us through the on-line appointment request link on our website. Once we receive a request, we will try to accommodate dates/times for an initial consultation. As mentioned before, we will require a set of photographs and medical history, in order to assess whether you are a good candidate for your desired surgery. Once we have all pertinent information, we will provide you with a price quote and medical clearance forms if necessary, and set up Skype or phone consultation with Dr. Bednar.
Upon booking the surgery, a 50% deposit is required and the remainder is due when you come in for your pre-op. All fees must be fully paid prior to surgery. We accept cashier checks, all credit cards, and offer outside financing companies, such as Care Credit®or Alpaheon®. You may apply directly through links provided on our website under the “financing” portion.
We have a dedicated staff that is familiar with travel logistics for patients coming from outside of Charlotte. We have seen patients from as far as Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Egypt, The UK and many other European and Asian countries. This planning guide will help you start the process of eliminating some headaches that come with travel logistics and being unfamiliar with Charlotte.
Our in-office concierge service coordinator will be able to assist you in arranging travel, hotel or after care nursing. Please call Sylvia at 704-366-6700 or email directly firstname.lastname@example.org
