Traveling Patients

Information for Traveling Patients

Dr. Aguirre has dedicated his professional career to addressing women’s functional and aesthetic vaginal concerns.  As a result of his specialized training and reputation for surgical excellence, Dr. Aguirre frequently attracts out-of-state and international patients to his Denver, Colorado office.  At Aguirre Specialty Care, we believe time and distance should not be an obstacle in getting patients the superior care they seek.

Initial evaluation and screening is done prior to visiting our office. This involves communication with our Patient Care Coordinator, review of your medical history and photographs, and prior operative reports as applicable. Once this has been  completed, Dr. Aguirre will approve coming to our office.

On your surgery day, you will be in the care of Dr. Aguirre and his experienced surgical team. Surgical patients who undergo vaginal reconstruction and rejuvenation under general anesthesia will require help the first 24 hours post-op. It is important that all patients have a companion at discharge.  If one is not available we can put you in touch with private-duty nursing. If you are traveling alone, we can help you make arrangements to be transported to a post-op care facility where you will receive 24 hour care.

Most of Dr. Aguirre’s Intimate Makeover procedures are performed in our surgical office suite under local anesthesia. These patients may arrive unaccompanied and are discharged to their hotel immediately following their procedure. This further ensures your privacy.

We see our surgical patients in follow-up on the first to fourth day, depending on which procedure(s) you are having done. Fortunately, complications from these surgeries are rare and most patients are able to return home within a few days.  Although the incidence of complications is low, any surgery involves risks.   If there is some concern after surgery, you will need to come back to see Dr. Aguirre at our office or he will suggest you go to an immediate care facility.

Though patients are encouraged to return for follow-up at 1-3 months and yearly, the reality of travel over great distance is that this is seldom done.  When you are home, we want to know how you are doing.  We encourage you to keep in touch with our office and periodically update us with your progress.  As with all of our patients, we ask that you call and/or email as questions or needs arise. Additionally, we ask that you send us periodic photos (via mail or email), so that Dr. Aguirre can visually see your progress.

Traveling patients are very important at Aguirre Specialty Care, and we are committed to making this an easy and relaxing journey.  We recognize there may be additional costs involved which is why we offer our out of state patients up to a $500.00 dollar credit towards their cosmetic surgery procedure that can be used to cover travel expenses. Whether Aesthetic Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation, Body Contouring or a comprehensive Mommy Makeover, Dr. Aguirre and his team are graciously ready to accommodate the needs of his traveling patients.

Below, out of town patients will find the answers to their specific questions, as well as the pertinent  resources needed to make their surgical goals with Dr. Aguirre a reality.

Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Virtual Consultation

Modern technology has made it possible for traveling patients to receive the same comprehensive initial consultation process that on-site patients receive. Via phone, email and/or Skype video chat. Out-of-town patients still have the opportunity to discuss their questions, concerns and cosmetic and/or medical goals with Dr. Aguirre at length, as well as receive his detailed feedback.

During this virtual consultation, he will go over all of your options and recommend which procedure(s) would best accomplish your objectives. Dr. Aguirre will also discuss how to take and submit photos of the areas you are concerned about, providing you with sample images as an example.  Patients can always take a virtual office tour of Aguirre Specialty Care.

Accommodations

Patients that live too far a distance to return home following their procedure and follow-up should book accommodations in the Denver area for this time period. Depending on the procedure a patient is undergoing with Dr. Aguirre, a post-surgical care center or on-site nurse may be recommended. For other procedures, however, traditional hotel lodging is sufficient. Please discuss this distinction with the staff at Aguirre Specialty Care before arranging your accommodations.
