Out of Town Patient
Welcome to Dr. Elena Tzamantaki Clinic
Are you interested in having plastic surgery in Greece at our practice, yet fear it is impossible to manage due to your location? Fear not! Many of our patients fly in from all over the world. We have perfected the “fly-in patients” protocol, making it virtually possible for all prospective patients to manage. Conveniently, located minutes from El. Venizelos Airport, you can fly-in alone or with your loved ones and we will walk you through a process that will ensure complete care and a comfortable, pleasant experience.
Meet our Plasis Cosmetic Surgery Family
At our Clinic of Excellence Plasis, we provide a caring atmosphere that sets us apart from the rest. Our warm and welcoming staff and surgeons make patients feel comfortable from the moment they enter our office. Whether you are a resident of the area or from out of town, we are here to guide you through every aspect of your experience.
Step 1: The initial contact
- Fly – In for a Personal Consultation and Examination
Ideal for the person who can afford to travel and/or who prefers to meet with the doctors and staff before making any decisions.
- Or Receive a Virtual Consultation
Ideal for the out of town person who cannot make it into the office or who wants to receive a consultation from the comfort of home.
Once our surgeons determine if you are a good candidate for surgery, you will be contacted by our Patient Coordinator. He can discuss fees and other expenses as well suggest a hotel and/or postoperative care accommodation.
Step 2: Scheduling
Once you have determined that you wish to proceed, the scheduling process begins. Your first appointment should take about two hours and will be spend in our office covering physical examination, pre and post-operative instructions, review and sign of all consents. Surgery can then usually be performed the following day at the Hospital Iatriko. In many cases patients are required to spend the evening in Hospital. Other cases need to stay only for a few hours after the operation and spend the night at the hotel. We ensure that you are comfortable and properly attended to.
Step 3: Recovery
Typically, fly-in patients stay in Athens for approximately seven to ten days after surgery. Many of our out of town patients have the option to stay for the first two to three days at the hotel and after choose one of the famous Greek islands like Mykonos – Santorini – Crete for the rest of their vacations. After that they return back to the office to remove the stiches and review the results of the operation. All these choices are depending of the severity of your surgery. For example if you get a Breast Reshaping operation you will be able to travel only the fourth post-operative day and return to us in ten days. The operation differs in each case. Your health and safety will remain our number one priority.
