People travel from all over the world to have their procedures performed at Crantford Costa Plastic Surgery. We are happy to offer travel support for out-of-town plastic surgery patients visiting our Charleston, SC, practice. Historic Charleston’s historical sites, restaurants, shopping, and accommodations make it easy to combine your visit with a mini vacation.

We have compiled a few of our favorite recommendations for places to eat and stay during your time in the area. Please let us know if you have any questions about planning your visit.

What To Know Before You Go

We recommend planning to stay in the area for about a week after most procedures or closer to 2 after a larger procedure such as a tummy tuck or mommy makeover. You may want to invite a trusted loved one to stay with you to keep you company and look after you as you recuperate.

You will have follow-up appointments with your surgeon during this time to check on your healing, remove sutures as needed, and discuss future follow-ups. Your surgeon will clear you to fly home when appropriate, which is typically a week or 2 after surgery.
