How long will I need to stay in Park City before and after my surgery?
Travel requirements vary depending on the type of surgery you’re having. It’s a good idea to plan to arrive in Park City at least a few days prior to your surgery and plan to stay a few days after.
Of course, if you’d like to take advantage of some of the exciting recreational opportunities in Park City, we recommend you plan to arrive one week before your surgery. Our concierge will help create a detailed itinerary specific to your interests and will arrange everything for you in advance.
What concerns should I have about the altitude affecting my healing process?
The altitude will not affect your healing, but on very rare occasions, it can affect your oxygen saturation levels. This is most often related to age and lung health. If this occurs, we will provide you with supplemental oxygen until your levels are normal again. Again, this is very rare. Most people acclimate to the higher altitude just fine within a day or two.
Why is it important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon for my procedure?
At Park City Medical Center, patient safety is our number one priority. That’s why physicians who are board-certified in plastic surgery are the only doctors allowed to perform plastic and reconstructive surgeries in our hospital.
Board certification is the process by which a physician in the United States demonstrates through written, practical, and/or simulator-based testing, a mastery of the knowledge and skills that define an area of medical specialization.
Rest assured, when you choose Park City Medical Center for your plastic surgery needs, your physician is qualified and dedicated to the field of plastic surgery. And that means the safest and most aesthetically pleasing outcome for you.
Our surgeons, Dr. David Teasley, Dr. Renato Saltz, and Dr. David Thomas are all board certified in plastic surgery.
After I leave the hospital, what I can I expect from Park City Medical Center for the rest of my stay in Park City?
At Park City Medical Center, we offer a true turnkey experience. When your procedure is complete, we’ll transport you back to your hotel to rest, or to your private room at the hospital, depending on your needs.
If you choose to stay in a hotel and would like this added service, a registered nurse will visit you to ensure you are feeling okay and answer any questions you may have. Your surgeon will also give you a call. Additionally, we work closely with the hotel concierges and together, we’ll make sure all your needs are met.
If you choose to stay overnight at Park City Medical Center, our nursing staff will be available to you 24/7.
Will insurance cover the cost of my procedure?
This depends on the procedure. Often times, insurance will cover reconstructive surgery, which helps you to return to a previous appearance. This may be due to a breast cancer, an injury or some other type of disfiguring event.
If your surgery is purely to enhance your existing appearance, insurance will likely not cover it. As all insurance plans vary, you should contact your insurance provider for exact information about your surgery benefits.
Why should I choose Park City Medical Center over a hospital closer to where I live?
This answer can be summed up in three words: safety, quality and results.
When you choose Park City Medical Center for your plastic surgery needs, you are choosing a hospital dedicated to excellent outcomes, both atheistically and in quality. Park City Medical Center adheres to the highest standards for patient safety and our board-certified surgeons are nationally recognized for their performance.
Outside the hospital of course, is a vibrant and stunning mountain town, ideal for recuperation. You can rest and re-energize your body, mind and spirit in Park City as long as you need.
