One of our friendly staff will be happy to give you some preliminary information about the procedures in which you are interested.
For our out-of-town patients there are two options:
- Travel to New York for a face-to-face consultation with one of our surgeons, and schedule your reconstruction surgery for a future date.
- Email photographs to our surgeons, including a short description of your desired reconstruction results. After reviewing your information, we’ll be able to assess whether you are a good candidate for your chosen reconstruction option.
Should this be the case, you will be contacted by our patient care coordinator, who will provide you with an estimated range of costs for your procedure(s), and answer any questions you may have about pre-operative care, recovery, where to stay during your trip to New Orleans, and anything else you want to know. When you schedule your surgery, you will also be booked for a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon.
We are thrilled to be able to offer breast reconstruction patients assistance with travel and accommodation expenses through the following programs:
Scheduling Your Procedure
As soon as you book your surgery, we will send you pre-operative information and instructions via email, including any necessary blood work or tests to be performed. Please read and follow these instructions carefully, as careful compliance will help ensure the best results of your reconstruction.
14 days before your surgery, you’ll receive a call from our physician’s assistant, who will review your medical history and instructions with you.
Getting Here and Where to Stay
No matter where you’re from, you deserve the best breast reconstruction options and care available. To that end, our Breast Center works to ensure that your travel to New York will be perfectly coordinated with your transportation, lodging, and medical appointments.
Work with our helpful staff to choose a lodging option that suits your needs and your budget. We also work with local hotels to offer our patients discounted rates.

Incentra Village House
This Greenwich Village guesthouse may be the closest to a home away from home that you’ll find in the city. Occupying a town house that was built in 1841, the property feels like a big residential apartment building.
