With hopes of the economic recovery on the horizon, more and more people are once again considering plastic surgery as a means of self-improvement. From breast augmentation to facial rejuvenation, patients are looking to their plastic surgeon for the means to make a change. Not all patients seem to be looking locally, however.

Santa Barbara plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Lowenstein reports that increasing numbers of patients are traveling from their distant homes to have plastic surgery in Santa Barbara. “I’m seeing more and more people who are interested in traveling to Santa Barbara for their plastic surgery. This week alone we’ve made arrangements to see women from Alaska and Colorado. Last week I saw a woman from New York. We’ve dealt with patients from Europe recently as well.”

Dr. Lowenstein is insisting on proper postoperative planning when seeing patients traveling from far away, and has specific thoughts on what he terms “destination plastic surgery”. Dr. Lowenstein comments, “Patients traveling to Santa Barbara for their plastic surgery must understand that their postoperative recovery is no different than the many local women that we care for. It’s important that patients plan an adequately long visit in Santa Barbara to be certain that they receive the proper follow-up care.”

Dr. Lowenstein chose Santa Barbara as the home for his practice because it offers the best of all worlds- legendary beauty, a relaxed atmosphere, top notch culture, and unsurpassed luxury for their patients and their patients’ families to enjoy. Known for his national efforts in plastic surgery education and patient care, Dr. Lowenstein’s programs at Plastic Surgery’s largest yearly meetings have been among the best attended and most acclaimed each year. Despite being courted by some of the most highly regarded plastic surgery institutions in the country, Dr. Lowenstein feels his choice of Santa Barbara has afforded him the ability to create an aesthetic surgical experience like no other. He feels fortunate that patients from all over the country and the world seem to feel the same. “I love to see my patients and I ask them to stop in whenever they return to town. Seeing them happy long after surgery is one of the best rewards that my profession affords me.”
