About the Practice Out-of-Town Patients

Out-of-Town Patients at Hedden Plastic Surgery

In the search for the right cosmetic surgeon, many patients travel from out-of-town to have plastic surgery with experienced board-certified plastic surgeons William J. Hedden, M.D. and Christopher J. Schaffer, M.D. Some drive a few hours while others fly in from around the country or from overseas. Hedden Plastic Surgery is one of the South's leading breast augmentation facilities with more than 1,000 procedures performed each year.

We understand that traveling for plastic surgery can be an emotional experience and are devoted to your safety, comfort and convenience should you decide to travel to our Birmingham, Alabama offices and outpatient surgery center.

Out-of-State Patient Coordinator

Heather, Out-of-State Patient Coordinator

Heather is our Out-of-State Patient Coordinator for patients who live at least 2 hours from our location. She will go over all of your questions, be your liaison with our office, coordinate the exchange of pertinent information (such as relevant photos and your medical history) and schedule your surgery date when you are ready. To get started with your Alabama cosmetic surgery experience, please call Heather at 205-980-1744 ext. 3, toll free 1-855-263-0828 or contact us online using our Virtual Consultation.

To ensure that you get the best possible care and cosmetic results, we usually require a 3-day stay in Birmingham — your consultation on the first day, surgery on the second day and post-op appointment on the third day. Heather works with our patients who live outside of Alabama or the United States to make the process as convenient as possible. Consultations with Dr. Hedden or Dr. Schaffer can sometimes be conducted by phone or online with Skype internet video conferencing.
