Facial Plastic Surgery in Utah

out-of-town-cosmetic-surgery-utahDr. Mobley’s reputation has resulted in a significant number of patients who have traveled to Salt Lake City to be treated by him. We welcome our patients from out of town and want to reassure you that your visit will be as comfortable and convenient as possible. Because Salt Lake City has a more reasonable cost of living compared to larger metropolitan areas, you may find it economically advantageous to travel here for surgery.

Many patients come from out of town in search of privacy and time away from friends and co-workers during the early healing period. Because Utah is a popular vacation destination, telling people that you’re coming here provides a reasonable explanation for your time away. Depending on which procedure you have performed, when you return, they may attribute your refreshed appearance to your vacation rather than realizing you’ve had cosmetic surgery.

We Cater To Our Out-Of-Town Guests In 7 Easy Steps

preparation-photosIf your plan is to have your consultation and surgery within a few days of each other, it is essential that we have as much information about you as possible in advance in order to estimate your required surgery time and give you quote for out-of-pocket fees.

Please take a set of digital photographs (we require a set of five standard poses) and email them to us. If your consultation is about nasal surgery, please include two more poses (base view and nasal bridge view). Please see the images to the left for an example of how to frame the photos.

How To Take Photographs For Clinical Assessment:

  • Do not take the photos yourself because you will not be able to check that you have the correct angles for the shots
  • Take them in a well-lit area-ideally with light sources from above but angled down towards you on either side (no back-lighting, please)
  • Use a background that contrasts well with your skin tone (medium blue is a good choice)
  • Relax your face completely
  • The photographer must be at the same eye level as you (not shooting down towards or up at you)
  • Do not tilt your head towards or away from the camera for the profile shots
  • For the 3/4 profile shots, the tip of your nose should appear to touch the edge of your cheek when the photographer looks through the lens
  • For the base view rhinoplasty photo, the camera should be held 6-12 inches below your eye level, and the tip of the nose should appear to line up between the eyebrows when the photographer looks through the lens
  • For the nasal bridge photo, from the base view position, drop your chin no more than two inches and have the photographer take a photo along the nasal dorsum at a slight angle, still from below your eye level.

If you or your child has a history of certain health conditions, pre-operative clearance may be necessary. Medical conditions such as severe asthma, irregular heartbeats, bleeding disorders or problems with general anesthesia may require pre-operative clearance for otoplasty. In general, most patients seeking otoplasty are in good health to receive the surgery.

Plan on spending an hour in the office for your consultation. This includes your examination by Dr. Mobley and meetings with other staff members who will assist you in planning your surgery. Information about and directions to the Utah Surgical Center will be provided during your consultation. If arrangements have been made for a weekend consultation, we will give you instructions on where and when to meet us for entering the building. Travel time to the office from any of our recommended hotels is less than 15 minutes.

We encourage patients to travel with a family member or close friend who can assist in your postoperative care. It is a standard of care to have someone with you for at least 24 hours following your surgery; with rare exceptions.  If a friend or family member cannot accompany you, we can assist you in providing nursing care through a local home health agency. We also advise that you have someone assist you with transportation for postoperative clinic appointments since you may be taking pain medication.

Many patients travel from some distance to receive otoplasty surgery by Dr. Mobley. As such, we can tailor your post op care to your specific needs. In general patients are strongly advised to stay in the Salt Lake city area for 1-2 days after otoplasty. The stitches placed in the skin do dissolve, so this adds an extra layer of convenience to your post operative care.

When you go home, it is important that you follow all of Dr. Mobley’s printed instructions for your recovery. Follow up after otoplasty is flexible. Local patients are encouraged to return to the office approximately 6 weeks after the procedure. Our out of town patients often send a follow up set of pictures at 6 weeks post-operative.
