Step One: Initial Consultation
To initiate the process, please reach out to our patient coordinator by email or through our website's contact form. Kindly provide details about the procedure you are interested in, along with any questions or concerns you may have. After receiving an inquiry, we will reach out to you right away to arrange an initial consultation with Dr. Antell.
We are pleased to offer our out-of-town patients virtual consultation options via Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime calls.
Step Two: Book Your Surgery
Once you have decided on the desired time frame for your surgery, we will work together to secure a suitable date in Dr. Antell's surgical schedule. With the aid of modern anesthesia techniques, all our procedures are outpatient, providing flexibility for your recovery. Depending on the procedure's complexity and your individual needs, we may recommend an overnight stay in New York, ensuring easy attendance at the customary post-op appointment the following day. However, even for procedures like facelifts, returning home immediately is an option. We often utilize dissolvable sutures, enabling virtual post-op care. Alternatively, many patients choose to extend their stay in New York for added convenience and comfort.
Moreover, a significant portion of the follow-up care can be seamlessly conducted through virtual appointments using platforms such as Zoom, FaceTime, or WhatsApp. It's crucial to emphasize that each surgical plan is meticulously customized to individual circumstances. This personalized approach ensures not only optimal care but also flexibility tailored to your unique needs, preferences, and the specific procedure you've selected.
Step Three: Arranging Accommodations for Recovery
Patients who decide to stay in New York City before or after their operation have the opportunity to recuperate in a serene and cozy environment, away from the everyday stresses and distractions of home. Accommodations can be arranged at a range of lodgings throughout NYC, including some of the finest hotels globally, where Dr. Antell's patients benefit from exclusive rates. Situated within the same block as our state-of-the-art operating room is the renowned Carlyle Hotel, celebrated for its commitment to discretion and featuring a private entrance. For extended recovery periods, a noteworthy option is the Sonesta, a hotel on East 64th Street explicitly designed to cater to the needs of patients with extended stays, ensuring both comfort and convenience.
Our dedicated patient coordinator will be there to support you throughout the process and can provide recommendations for lodging and travel arrangements. Additionally, if desired, we can assist in arranging private nursing care to ensure your comfort and well-being during your recovery period.
