A Note to Our Out-of-Town Patients…
Despite the reason for your plastic surgery, just making the decision to move forward with your procedure is an exciting, life-changing one; however, it does require a bit of planning. At Strax Rejuvenation, we have the pleasure of performing cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures for people from around the world. Every year, people visit Southern Florida to receive treatment from one of our top plastic or cosmetic surgeons. Some even make plans to travel to our area so they can take advantage of an amazing special. Our out-of-town patients have usually shopped around and already know why Strax Rejuvenation is a step above the rest, even before calling our office to schedule an appointment with one of our highly-skilled surgeons.
What Makes Strax Rejuvenation a Top Choice for International Clients?
At Strax Rejuvenation, we have board-certified, and double board-certified surgeons available to cover nearly every aspect of cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery. We have surgeons specializing in hair restoration, dermal fillers, facial rejuvenation procedures, gastric sleeve and Lap-Band surgery, liposuction, tickle liposuction, the revolutionary Vaser liposuction, vaginal rejuvenation, breast enhancement and more.
Our surgeons’ skills are evident in that professional athletes, entertainers and International clients choose to have their cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures at Strax Rejuvenation. Many of our International clients take advantage of their time here and have multiple procedures performed during the same surgical session. In addition, depending on the scheduled surgical procedures, clients may also schedule minimally-invasive procedures such as dermal fillers or NaturaLase Er Fractional Laser treatments. Once all their procedures are complete and they head back home, they will look rejuvenated, youthful and more radiant than ever before!
Creating Your Plan for Success
Just considering the possibility of having a life-changing surgical procedure, that you may have wanted for the majority of your adult life, can be extremely exciting. The medical staff and surgeons at Strax Rejuvenation want to help you accomplish this goal.
There are two factors that are essential to achieving the best possible plastic surgery results:
- The experience, skill level and artistic vision of the plastic surgeons who are performing your procedure.
- How well you take care of yourself as you recover.
4 Factors to Consider Before You Make Your Appointment
Consider Your Reason for Seeking Change
You should want to have cosmetic procedures and/or plastic surgery for yourself and, although these procedures are known to increase an individual’s self-confidence level, which spills over into many of the other aspects of one’s life, you should not expect other areas of your life to be ‘fixed’ because you had cosmetic or plastic surgery.
Plastic and cosmetic procedures will not help you fight a mental illness, fix your marriage or help you obtain the promotion or raise you have been lobbying for.
Have Realistic Expectations
As you fill your portfolio with your ‘wish pictures,’ be sure to choose pictures of people with features that are similar to yours. For example, the individual’s bone structure, ethnicity, height and weight should all be comparable to your own.
Reach and Maintain Your Target Weight
Weight fluctuations before and after your procedure can adversely affect the results of your surgery. For this reason, the surgeons at Strax Rejuvenation recommend that individuals reach their targeted weight and maintain it for at least three months before their procedure.
Concentrate on Staying Healthy Prior to Surgery
As your surgery date approaches, be sure to take good care of your body by eating healthy, exercising and ridding yourself of unhealthy habits (e.g., smoking, excessive drinking, etc.). You should begin this transition at least 30 days before your surgery date.
After surgery, many of our patients decide to maintain their healthier lifestyles because it helps them protect the results attained during their procedure.

Schedule Your Virtual Consultation
Instead of coming in for your initial consultation, make things simple for yourself and request a virtual consultation.

What to Expect During Your Virtual Consultation
Your surgical coordinator will contact you at the pre-scheduled time to ask you a variety of questions related to your overall health, medications and allergies. In addition, please be prepared to explain what you would like to accomplish with plastic surgery and/or a cosmetic procedure. Please remember to take time zones into consideration. Lauderdale, Florida, is located in the Eastern Daylight Time Zone. To compare time zone differences, please click here.
After the consultation, your coordinator will send you a questionnaire to complete. This questionnaire will be sent via email. In addition, please be prepared to send several pictures of the area(s) you would like your selected surgeon to address. Please take your pictures at different angles: Your surgeon will study these pictures to begin creating your surgical plan.
Make a Deposit and Schedule Your Surgery
By making a deposit on your procedure, you can lock in the current pricing as well as set your surgery date.
You can always explore outside financing options; however, at Strax Rejuvenation, we offer our clients guaranteed financing. Click here to learn more about our financing program.
Make Sure We Receive Your Test Results
Please contact Strax Rejuvenation at 954-933-5448 no later than 16 days before your surgery to make sure that your healthcare facility has provided us with your test results. This is extremely important because without your test results we cannot move forward with your procedure and if additional testing is required, your surgery will be set even further back.
Booking Your Flight
After your surgeon reviews all your tests and clears you for surgery, it is time to schedule your flight. When scheduling your arrival time, please remember that we require all Strax Rejuvenation patients to arrive in Miami no later than noon on the day before their initial preoperative appointment with their surgeon. Also, Lauderdale, Florida, is on Eastern Daylight Time Zone (EDT), please keep this in mind when scheduling your flight. Use this time zone site to determine the time difference between Lauderdale, Florida, and your location.
Unless you made arrangements to stay at Care Concierge Solutions, you will need to have someone who is at least 18 years of age (and that you trust implicitly) with you. This individual will need to drive you to and from your procedure, remain with you and care for you for at least 24 hours after your surgery.

On the Day of Your Procedure
Since Strax Rejuvenation performs outpatient procedures, once your procedure is complete and you are fully awake, the post-operative department will evaluate you. As long as no complications are detected, you will be released to your personal driver. For the safety of our patients, we do not permit the use of public transportation or any other for-hire transportation (e.g., Uber, Lyft, etc.) service following procedures that require anesthesia or sedation.
Your Personal Driver
If you have a personal driver, he or she must be at least 18-years-old. In addition, your surgeon will want your driver to remain with you for at least 24 hours after your surgery. The amount of assistance you will need depends on which procedures your surgeon performed.
Turn Your Trip into a Vacation
Although you will need to avoid alcoholic beverages, smoking and eating unhealthy foods, the Miami area is a premier tourist location. Take a sunset walk on one of our white sand beaches, go sightseeing, shop at Bal Harbour and enjoy the local art as you tour Wynwood. Go ahead and take it all in – just remember to follow your pre-surgical restrictions and then, have a great time!
