Out of town patients, view from the plane on the city

Mia Aesthetics warmly welcomes patients from out of town. Whether you are driving in from a neighboring city of flying in from a completely different country, you can have a seamless surgical experience and a smooth recovery. Patients coming in to either of Mia Aesthetics’ locations must follow their instructions carefully to ensure a seamless experience.

Below is a list of requirements and reminders for out of town patients must follow:

Lab Work / Tests

  • We will send you the lab order 60 days ahead of your surgery date
  • Blood work and medical clearance is required within 30 days of surgery. Surgeries scheduled within two weeks of surgery date require completed labs within 48 hours of surgery
  • All patients 50 and older will be required to obtain a stress test
  • Diabetic patients need an A1C under 6.5 if operating with Dr. Charepoo. All other doctors operate with an A1C under 6.9

Patient Requirements

  • BMI (Body Mass Index) for all surgeries except tummy tucks and combo procedures must be lower than 34 upon arrival for surgery or surgery will be cancelled
  • BMI for tummy tuck and combo procedures must be 32 or less
  • Hemoglobin must be at a 12 for surgery. If hemoglobin is between 11.1 & 11.9, Cell Saver is required. Cell Saver is a blood transfusion with your own blood, reducing overall blood loss during surgery. The add-on is $500

  • You must be accompanied by an adult at least 18 years or older (friend/family/care giver) to drop you off and pick you up after surgery. If you are planning on coming alone, you must make caregiver arrangements as you will be discharged from our facility on the same day of your procedure
