Travel to New York for Plastic Surgery

Information For Patients Traveling For Plastic Surgery To New York

When you are considering plastic surgery, you want to entrust your health and well-being to the most qualified and experienced surgeon.  That’s why patients from around the world have chosen Dr. Darrick Antell, a leading board certified plastic surgeon, for cosmetic and aesthetic surgery of their face, breast, and body. In a career that spans over twenty years and more than ten thousand procedures, Dr. Antell combines meticulous surgical skills with the most advanced and safest medical technologies.

At Dr. Antell’s practice, we have extensive experience when it comes to helping patients who are traveling to New York for plastic surgery.  From initial consultations through post-op recovery, we want your cosmetic surgery experience to be first class all the way. Our office is located in the heart of New York City, with convenient access to all three major metropolitan airports: J.F.K., LaGuardia, and Newark.  

All of Dr. Antell's procedures are performed at our on-site, state-of-the-art surgical facility, Lenox Hill Ambulatory Surgery, P.C. This certified operating room meets the accreditation standards of the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).  We can also help to arrange local accommodations with or without private nursing care for your recovery period.

Our experienced and caring patient coordinators can guide you every step of the way to ensure you have the safest and most comfortable experience while you are recovering away from home. Please contact our patient coordinator by phone at 212-988-4040 or e-mail to assist you with your travel needs and schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Darrick Antell.

Three easy steps for arranging surgery with Dr. Antell

Step One (Initial Consult): Email our patient coordinator or contact us via this website and describe your procedure of interest and any questions or concerns you may have. We will then contact you to arrange an initial consultation with Dr. Antell. We understand that for some out-of-town patients, an in-person consultation may not be feasible, and are, thus, happy to conduct the consultation virtually either via a video conferencing platform or a telephone call.

Step Two (Book Your Surgery): Decide on your time frame for surgery and book a date in Dr. Antell’s surgical schedule. When making your plans, please keep in mind that Dr. Antell typically recommends staying in New York for approximately 7-14 days after surgery (depending on the procedure). We also recommend arriving in New York a few days prior to your surgery so that we can arrange a pre-operative consultation for one or two days before your surgery to review the procedure. 

However, planning for surgery is case by case. Many patients, especially those who first have a virtual consultation, will arrive the day prior to their procedure and depart a few days afterward. They will then return to New York City for subsequent follow-ups or suture removal appointments. In certain cases, virtual follow-up appointments can also be accommodated.

Step Three (Arranging Accommodations for Recovery): One of the benefits of traveling to New York for surgery is the ability to recover privately in a peaceful and comfortable setting that’s free from the stresses and distractions you might have at home. 

Our patient coordinator will assist you with lodging and travel recommendations and can arrange private nursing care.  We can even recommend some fun, non-strenuous activities for you to participate in during your recovery.
