Fly in for Surgery

At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we care for many patients who fly in from all over Australia and overseas. We have perfected our ‘fly-in’ procedure so that all patient – regardless of location – can benefit from our state-of-the-art facilities and unparalleled standard of care.

Whether you fly-in alone or with loved ones, we can take care of you. We will guide you through the entire process from initial phone consultation to full recovery.

Step 1: Initial Consultation

This is an important first step. Speak to our dedicated patient advisor about your goals, potential dates and costs and have all your questions answered over the phone. We want to help you feel comfortable right from the start.

Step 2: ‘Fly-in’ for Your Consultation

Fly-in and meet your plastic surgeon, Dr Allan Kalus. Talk with Dr Kalus about your individual goals and your procedure. He will then walk you through every aspect of your experience with us.

Using AlterImage® Computer Imaging, Dr Kalus can show you a preview of how you will look after your surgery.

Step 3: Surgery

Your surgery can usually be performed the day after your consultation at our Private Surgery Center. Dr Kalus specialises in minimally invasive surgery in order to provide the highest standard of safety and reduce visible scarring and recovery time.

Step 4: Recovery

Our procedures for ‘fly-in’ surgery provide extensive support during your recovery. You will see our dedicated surgical nurse the following morning and then regularly until you fly home.

Step 5: Return Home

90 per cent of our patients return to normal activity within three days and most return home after 3-7 days.

If necessary, we can refer you to your local physician and supervise continued care once you return home.
