I live and practice in a resort area, and am the closest Plastic Surgeon for a number of people like you. There are only a few operations following which I really do not like patients to travel. One of these is Blepharoplasty. The reason is simple. One of the risks of the operation is postoperative bleeding. By significantly restricting patient activity immediately after the procedure, we have almost eliminated this problem.
The main reason we know so much about this is that the major complication caused by the bleeding is blindness. At one time blindness was rare, but common enough to be very worrisome. By us as a group changing injection techniques and restricting patient activity, I have not heard of a case of blindness in many years.
A hotel room near the OR and someone to be with you the night of surgery, in my opinion, is absolutely mandatory. You are spending a lot for the surgery. A little bit more (we have deals with the local hotels) is a small price to pay for the safety it affords.
