Welcome to Miami Beach!
Travel Tips and Post-op Hints:
Which airport should I fly into?
We are conveniently located just 30 minutes from both Miami International(MIA) and the Fort Lauderdale Airport(FLL).
Where should I stay?
We recommend that you stay at Best Western Windsor Inn, 12210 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami, FL 33181-2714, Phone: 305/891-7350. This hotel is reasonably priced at about $150 per night and is minutes away from our office. Mention promo code HPFL when booking to receive a 15% discount! It is also conveniently located near Whole Foods, Walgreens, Publix Supermarket, and Target.
If you would like to stay at more luxurious hotel and take advantage of the beach, we recommend the Grand Beach Hotel of Surfside, 9449 Collins Avenue, Surfside, FL 33154, Phone: 1-855-652-8666. The average prices range from $269-$500 a night.
How long should I stay?
We ask that Patients stay in town 7-10 days following surgery to monitor their recovery. After you return home, we will follow your progress with regular phone calls, emails and pictures.
Do I need someone to take care of me?
Yes, you will need an adult to supervise you for the first 72 hours, and then someone to check in on you periodically throughout the day for your stay here. This can be a friend or a family member (remember we are always just a phone call away!). If you would like to have a professional stay with you during your recovery, please let us know and we will arrange for one of our trained caretakers to be with you. The cost is about $175-$300 per 24 hours of bedside nursing care.
What should I do about transportation?
We recommend that you download the UBER App to your smartphone. They are a reliable transportation service. Once you download the UBER app, we will provide you with a $100 UBER gift card to use. It is simple to arrange for drivers to transport to your hotel, office, and anywhere else you need to go through your UBER account. If you’ve never UBER’d before…get ready for a really cool experience, and you may never rent a car again!
How do I get my medications?
At your pre-operative appointment you will receive your prescriptions for your medications. We can conveniently prescribe most of your prescriptions electronically to almost any pharmacy. Otherwise, we will give you a paper copy at our office or we can mail them to you directly.
What should I bring with me?
The main things you need: comfortable clothing to wear to surgery, your prescription medications, a BOPPY pillow (if you are having a Brazilian butt lift), and a big smile for the NEW YOU!
What food should I have during my recovery?
Before your surgery you should stock up on gatorade, saltine crackers, and yogurt. We have also partnered with a food delivery service that will provide you with nutritious recovery meals delivered at your doorstep. You can call (305) 901-1316 to order 3 meals a day and 2 snacks for $252/week!
