Travelling Patients

Request a Consultation

Patients from all over Australia as well as overseas have visited us to be treated by Dr. Kumar. As Dr. Kumar only operates in Sydney, we have prepared the following guidelines for patients who are thinking of coming to Sydney for their operation.

Contact our staff to organise a phone or skype consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Kumar will assess your requirements and discuss which procedure is most suitable for you. This preliminary assessment will form part of your overall assessment procedure.

A $150 phone consultation fee is charged, and your booking is secured upon receipt of this payment.

To arrange a phone consultation please call the following numbers:
NSW and Interstate patients: 1300 26 77 26 ( local call rate)
International: +612 9572 7727 (international rates apply)

In order to plan your surgery and be able to give you an opinion of your options, we require you to send us some photos of yourself. Please take these photos with multiple views—front, side, and oblique—and either email them to us or load them up via our website’s contact us page. Our receptionist will be happy to guide you if you have any concerns. Fill out and return a registration form that you can download or that we can email to you.

Book and confirm your surgery date

Once you have booked in for surgery, we will advise you on when you should travel to Sydney and how long you should plan to stay after the operation. You must have someone accompany you for your surgery, as you will need them to take you home as well as potentially help look after you in the early days after the surgery. This support person can be a family member or a good friend. If you are having difficulty organising this, then please let our team know, and we can arrange for a nurse to accompany you (extra fee).

When you book a date for the surgery, you will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit. Once this is done, a surgical information pack will be sent to you, which contains all the information in detail about your upcoming procedure.

Arrange your accommodation in Sydney

Dr. Kumar performs all his surgeries in some of Sydney’s best, fully accredited private hospitals. These hospitals can easily be accessed from the airport.

Hotel accommodations are available at a discounted rate at all these locations.

A guide for the approximate number of days you will be required to stay in Sydney is listed below.

Breast Augmentation:

1-2 days prior to your surgery date and for 5 days afterwards.

Breast Reduction/Lift/Revision Surgery/Tuberous Breast/Asymmetry:

1-2 days prior to your surgery and for 7 days after.

Mummy Makeover and Post Weight-loss Surgery:

1-2 days prior to your surgery then 3 days in hospital followed by 10-12 days stay in Sydney.

Arrive in Sydney

On your arrival, prior to your surgery, you will need to see Dr. Kumar in person to determine the final touches necessary regarding your surgery. At this time, decisions such as measurements for breast implants, the choice of implant size, etc. will be made. This consult is crucial for your surgery and is the continuation of your phone consult. You will be unable to proceed with your surgery without this consultation.

Prior to your surgery, it is paramount that you avoid smoking (nicotine) for a minimum of 8 weeks (preferably longer), and any anti-inflammatory medications or potentially blood-thinning supplements such as fish oil, ginseng, or ginkgo are stopped at this time as well.

Day of surgery

You will arrive at the hospital and spend time before your surgery with our anaesthetist who will take a history and examine your fitness for a general anesthetic. You will also meet some of the staff that will be caring for you.

If you are having a procedure that is a day case, then you will be required to be picked up by your support person. This is part of our hospital policy, and they will not let you leave unaccompanied after a procedure requiring a general anaesthetic. A private nurse can be arranged for you if you do not have a support person, but this is at an additional charge to you.

After your surgery

A post-operative visit will be scheduled for you prior to your leaving for home. Your incision sites will be reviewed, and dressings will be changed as appropriate. A comprehensive package of post-operative instructions will also be given and discussed with you, as well as any dressings that you may require.

Further post-operative visits or reviews will be arranged with you at this time, which may include phone consults, further reviews in our rooms, or a combination of these.

Concierge services

Dr. Kumar has teamed up with Pure You Concierge Services to ensure that our interstate and overseas patients receive additional care and support should they need it.

Pure You offers clients pre- and post-operative care services via tailored, personal packages. They can liaise with your accommodation to ensure your arrival after surgery is a breeze, with all your essential items ready and waiting for you and your room set up for your maximum comfort.

Their Concierge services are designed to suit each procedure and can be tailored to what you find important to your recovery. These packages can include travel and accommodation bookings, transfers, beauty appointments, and any other luxury post-operative services you require.

You might like to enjoy the luxury of an in-room hair wash, meal deliveries, manicures, or even a massage. You might want them to find you the closest juice bar or burger restaurant, or you may require a chair to assist you in the shower after an abdominoplasty. All of this can be arranged by your Pure You Concierge.

For more details about this service and if this is suitable for you, you can visit the Pure You website.
