Iowa Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dan Givens


Dr. Givens frequently treats patients from out of town, who travel to our practice for their procedures.  On some occasions, he is able to offer virtual consultations in order to meet the patient and discuss treatment options.  In most cases, it will be necessary for the patient to make at least one in-person visit prior to scheduling surgery.  This is necessary in order for Dr. Givens to ensure that the patient is an appropriate surgical candidate, and to allow for important surgical planning.  

After surgery, typically an appointment is required the next day, as well as seven days after surgery.  On some occasions, additional visits may be required to help manage the healing process.  

We recommend the following accommodations for our patients travelling from out of town:


An initial consultation with Dr. Givens is crucial. Coming prepared with several basic questions can help convey your cosmetic surgery objectives to Dr. Givens, who can then offer tailored advice. Our in-office consults are available to delve into the surgical plan and address any inquiries. Our patient services team is on hand to outline all associated plastic surgery costs and additional charges. You will receive a cost estimate along with comprehensive details on the intended surgery to aid in your preparation and scheduling.


Upon deciding to proceed with the surgery, a Patient Care Consultant will reach out to discuss potential dates for the operation. Dr. Givens has a high demand for services both locally and nationally, making a deposit necessary to reserve your surgery date, as openings are limited. We suggest arriving a day before your pre-operative appointment for optimal preparation.


After setting your surgery date, we'll ensure you're medically cleared for the procedure. You'll receive specific pre-operative instructions tailored by Dr. Givens and his team. 



Once you receive medical clearance for surgery, it's time to plan your trip! To assist, we've compiled a list of local hotels and places to eat. We require arranging for a companion to support you post-surgery. This caregiver should help with transportation to and from our facility, personal care, meal preparations, and errands, including prescription pickups, and assist with mobility and dressing, ensuring you have the support and companionship needed during recovery.
