Richmond Virginia in top 10 U.S. cities for cosmetic surgery?

Believe it or not, Richmond, Virginia was listed as one of the top 10 cities in the USA for cosmetic surgery in a recent issue of Men’s Health Magazine.  Most people would expect to see Los Angles, Beverly Hills or New York City on this list! Dr. Niamtu, being one of the busiest cosmetic facial surgeons in Richmond, is proud to be a contributor in this statistic.

Richmond has some of the nations finest medical facilities and is big town with small town features making it easy to get to, lots of history to see, great hotels and restaurants, and southern hospitality.  Many patients come to Richmond to see  Dr. Niamtu from out of state and out of the country. We are honored to have operated on patients from almost every state in the USA as well as all over the world.  Patients come not only for  Dr. Niamtu‘s expertise and reputation, but many surgeons from the USA and other countries also come to study with  Dr. Niamtu at his cosmetic facial surgery courses.

For over 26 years, we have been honored to treat patients from other cities and states and countries. Out of town patients represent a large part of our practice and our goal is to make  the out of town surgical experience as easy as possible. Some of these patients already have accommodations with friends or family, but many patients do not.

Richmond VA riverscape at twilight. Dr. Niamtu welcomes out-of-town cosmetic surgery patients to Richmond VA.

Our office and surgery center can assist out of town patients with comprehensive specialized pre and post surgical care, transportation, meals and lodging. We can tailor this to the medical and financial desires of our patients from economical to luxurious.

Our staff includes Registered Nurses experienced in surgical care who will transport the patient and provide 24 hour nursing care.

Please contact our office for more information regarding out of town patients.

Pre Visit Consultation

In order to maximize the efficiency of your time and to facilitate your consultation, Dr. Niamtu prefers to communicate with prospective patients via email.  Although not a substitute for a face to face consult or official medical opinion, sending pictures and commentary to  Dr. Niamtu before coming to Richmond can assist both the patient and our office as to the options and feasibility of cosmetic facial surgery procedures.

Consultation Fees

Due to the increased time required for consultation with out of town patients a $175 consultation fee is due at the time of the consult.  This fee can be applied to any service or product and will be subtracted from any surgery charge if the patient schedules a procedure.

Privacy and Anonymity

Our office treats patients from out of state and out of the country as well as patients whose profession demands total privacy and identity protection. Although we provide privacy for all of our patients, it is our pleasure to arrange individual private consultations without exposure to other patients and staff. Please contact Dr. Niamtu directly to arrange specialized consultation if required. In addition, we can provide privatized lodging, nursing care, dining and security for those patients requiring such service.
