Santa Barbara Plastic Surgery Center Out Of Town Patients

We have a wide variety of patients who come and many patients are local patients and they like to stay near home and have their surgery done. Some people come from a distance. We have had engineers come from Germany. We have had patients from Canada, from Mexico, from Australia, from a distance and usually the reason that people were coming from a distance is that they value a certain expertise that I have and they want me to do their particular type of surgery. Having said that, in virtually all the major cities of the world there are talented, conscientious, hard-working physicians and that is a choice that people have to make personally. Some people come to Santa Barbara because they want to have the Santa Barbara experience, by that I mean they would like to be recovering down by the beach and listening to the waves in a pleasant place that is sunny most of the time as opposed to in a hotel room somewhere in a big city. So those are sort of personal choices and it has to do also with the spouse or the friend that is coming to be with him and it is sometimes more fun for them if they can be in a resort area than in a city situation. So there are lots of ways to look at it and we have as I say local patients, patients from all over California, the West and then we have you know occasionally patients who come from Europe as well.

Plastic Surgery Vacations Santa Barbara Plastic Surgery Center

Most people that come to Santa Barbara are drawn to the beaches and Stearns Wharf is very pretty right centrally located with some good restaurants and views of the beach and the mountains and the whole Santa Barbara scene, so that is usually a good starting point. The El Encanto Hotel excellent view is up near the mission. The Santa Barbara Mission is definitely worth a trip with the Rose Gardens adjacent to it. The lower portion of State Street near the beach is full of cute shops and restaurants and Sushi places and we find a lot of people like to stroll back and forth on lower State Street. The Biltmore Hotel is a classic hotel, beautiful hotel and when you are feeling better, maybe towards the end of your trip that is a wonderful place to go sit on the verandah and have a light dinner. We find that that is interesting. The Santa Barbara Wine Country over the pass and into Santa Ynez is very popular and if people have enough energy that is a fun trip, a wine tasting trip. Often that is something they do later when they come back, not right after their surgery. But those are a few of the highlights that a lot of people like to see.
