The characters on the hit television show may be moving to Rodeo Drive, but in real life there is only one plastic surgery center on the world's most glamorous street.
Beverly Hills, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/12/2007 -- "Word has it that TV's hit series Nip/Tuck is moving from Miami to Beverly Hills. According to the buzz, the move is to Rodeo Drive…but in reality, Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery is the first and only plastic surgery center at Beverly Hills' ultimate address." In Hollywood Magazine
"Just like the fictional plastic surgeons on Nip/Tuck, we built our offices and surgery center on Rodeo Drive - the world capital of fashion and style - because this exclusive street represents the highest standards in taste and service. It's the only cosmetic surgery center on this street of luxury. I therefore made a point of creating an atmosphere that is luxurious, inviting, and soothing," explains Lloyd Krieger, M.D., the founder, and medical director of Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery.
The Rodeo Drive Transformation Vacation: In true Rodeo Drive Style, Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, which is nestled next to Chanel, Dior and Tiffany & Co. has introduced a "transformation vacation" to help jump-start the recovery process. The Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery Visiting Patients Program includes "concierge" style services to help patients coordinate hotel or facility accommodations, make reservations or book excursions and shopping trips.

Krieger's practice also offers other services that connect patients with Rodeo Drive businesses, such as health clubs, beauty salons and fashion retailers where they can get help starting new workout routines or re-vamping their wardrobes or skincare regimens. Those amenities, coupled with the Rodeo Drive Transformation Vacation Program make it possible to help turn what can be a sometimes long and tedious recovery process into a life-transforming adventure.
International Clientele: According to Dr. Krieger, who has been featured in such media as Fortune, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Access Hollywood, and other media outlets, roughly 20 percent of his patients drive or fly in from locales at least two hours away, many from Northern Californian cities, but also from places such as Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey. He recently had patients travel from Germany, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Canada, and China for his services on Rodeo Drive.
The Rodeo Drive Experience: Dr. Krieger has worked hard to create a positive experience as patients undergo body contouring following massive weight loss. His deluxe facility, nestled next to Chanel, Dior and Tiffany & Co., creates a relaxed setting of unusual style and elegance. The posh 5,000 square foot facility looks more like a boutique than a doctor’s office. The ultra-modern on-site surgery center is fully certified by the federal government through its Medicare program to maximize comfort and safety. The staff also make things convenient for out of town patients (about 35% of their practice) with their Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery Transformation Vacation program.
