Planning Your Facial Rejuvenation Procedure in Los Angeles County

Dr. Frankel works with countless patients who live or work in Beverly Hills or Los Angeles County. The first step toward achieving your facial rejuvenation goals is to schedule a consultation at his practice.

During your consultation, Dr. Frankel will discuss what you hope to get from surgery or a non-surgical procedure. He can then recommend specific procedures to you or a combination of surgeries that will give you the best possible results. 

As you plan for your consultation and cosmetic surgery, it’s a good idea to prepare a list of questions to ask Dr. Frankel so that you know what to expect before, during, and after your procedure. 

Dr. Frankel will also give you suggestions and tips to help you prepare for surgery, such as recommendations for finding a person to drive you home and advice on how to stock your pantry or ready your home for the recovery period.

Traveling to Southern California for Facial Plastic Surgery

If you’re looking for a talented plastic surgeon, Beverly Hills is the place to be. Although many of Dr. Frankel’s patients are local to Los Angeles or Southern California, some do travel from out of town, hoping to work with one of the most highly recommended facial plastic surgeons in the country. Dr. Frankel aims to provide the best possible experience for out-of-town patients.

Our patient care team and the out-of-town concierge can help you arrange for travel to LA. We can recommend luxury hotels to stay in, such as the Beverly Hills Hotel. Our office has special partnerships with several hotels in the area and can assist you in making reservations.
