San Francisco is home to some of the most beautiful people in the world, and home to Wave Plastic Surgery Center, where our staff is dedicated to helping you feel even more beautiful. If you are considering getting plastic surgery in San Francisco, look no further than our luxurious facility located in the heart of the city. Our surgery center is fully accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) and features some of the most cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology and services. Our travel program assists out-of-town patients with travel arrangements (flights and hotel reservations) so that you can focus on preparing and recovering from surgery. Our San Francisco facility is centrally located in Koreatown, surrounded by some of the most exciting new developments in dining, hospitality, and entertainment in LA, including The Line Hotel and restaurants, the newly renovated Normandie Hotel. We are just a short drive from classic downtown hotels such as The Millennium Biltmore, Ace Hotel, The J.W. Marriott, and The Ritz Carlton. A host of new and exciting restaurants are located around us including Pot and Commissary at The Line Hotel, Le Comptoir at The Hotel Normandie, Saint Martha, EsCaLA, Chosun, Baekjeong, Madang, EMC, and Taylor’s Steakhouse. A member of our administrative staff will work with you to arrange for your flight to LA as well as make travel arrangements from the airport to your hotel. We’ll also help you choose a hotel within the area that best fits your needs, and will provide a list of local points of interest such as restaurants, theaters, and shopping centers. We want you to have the most relaxing and enjoyable time during your stay with us here in San Francisco.
To start the process of your transformation, one of our doctors or consultants will speak with you to determine a plan of action for your surgery. Two consultation options are available for out-of-town patients, you can either schedule to fly in for a personal consultation or opt for a virtual consultation online. Ideally, we would like to meet with you in person first to better assess your goals and address any concerns you may have. Afterward, you will be contacted by a Patient Coordinator to review logistics, travel arrangements, pre-op instructions, and post-op care accommodations. For our out-of-town patients, we also offer the option for overnight care with dedicated nurses at our facility or at a local post-operative aftercare retreat.
When you are ready for your procedure, we will schedule you for your first appointment to meet with our team at Wave. During the meeting, the doctor will perform a thorough history and physical examination, and create an integrated surgical pre and postoperative care plan for you, working with your consultant and the rest of the Wave team.
Most of our out-of-town patients choose to stay overnight at our facility or at a local post-operative aftercare retreat for the first 24 hours following surgery. You will have a dedicated nurse to assist you with anything that you need throughout the night. We suggest that most of our patients stay in San Francisco for 7 to 10 days after surgery. This way we can ensure a smooth postoperative recovery, and that you are properly healed by the time of your flight home. Your health is our number one concern.
