Out of Town Arrangements

Getting Started

First, Contact our Office. When requesting a Remote Consultation, we suggest patients submit photos for Dr. Drehsen’s review prior to the consultation. Our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons will use state-of-the-art computer imaging to see how they can help you reach your beauty goals.

We have three consultation options for out of town patients:

  1. Travel to our beautiful office located in downtown St. Petersburg to meet with Dr. Drehsen and discuss your options, then return at a later date for your procedure.
  2. Consult with Dr. Drehsen via Skype. This lets you work with the doctor on options almost as closely as if you were here.
  3. Consult with Dr. Drehsen via a phone call.

Scheduling Your Procedure

When you have arrived at a beauty aesthetic plan with Dr. Drehsen, we request a 20% deposit to reserve your procedure date.

Once you have scheduled your surgery, you will receive an information package and consent forms. These must be reviewed and followed carefully. This will include required blood work and other testing.

Two weeks prior to your surgery date, one of our Registerd Nurses will be in touch to go over any final questions.
