The Out of Town
Patient Process

Approximately 40% of our patients travel to Brisbane for surgery. Here’s how the process works.

Overview

In order to accomodate our interstate patients along with our surgeons’ schedules, we usually recommend the following:

  • Arrive in Brisbane on Monday morning
  • Attend the face-to-face appointment in clinic on Monday afternoon
  • Undergo surgery in Brisbane on either Tuesday or Wednesday
  • Attend the postoperative appointment in clinic on Thursday
  • Fly home on either Friday or Saturday (pending review)

Before Surgery

A support person will be required to accompany you for the length of your stay, if you are unable to find someone to accompany you, Inigo Cosmetic can provide you with the details of a reputable nursing agency.

As you will need to attend a second face-to-face consultation with your surgeon prior to surgery, it is best to arrive one to two days before your procedure. During this appointment we will:

  • Take clinical images
  • Take measurements
  • Finalise the surgical plan
  • Breast surgery patients will try on implant sizes
  • Provide a complimentary Healite LED Light Therapy treatment

After Surgery

All patients are required to attend a postoperative appointment with the surgeon in our clinic before they travel home.

The day after surgery, our nurse will call you to complete your postoperative call and to discuss your dressing change appointments.

Dressing changes are usually performed once a week for three weeks. These can be done in the clinic or we can provide you with a detailed letter to give to your local GP. We ask that all patients remind their practitioner to use their phone to take clinical images of the surgical incisions. Patients are also reminded to provide us with the full name and practice details of the practitioner performing the dressing change.

You will have postoperative appointments scheduled with your surgeon throughout the following year. These can be done in person or online through our Virtual Clinic.
