Can I Come To The U.S. For Cosmetic Surgery Without A Visa?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have read and would like to have rhinoplasty done with you if its possible. However I don’t have a visa to come to Indiana. I don’t know if it’s possible but I am just inquiring, is it possible for me to travel to indiana without a visa if I have a doctor’s letter from you? And that letter can be posted to me in my home country? Thanks.

A: I could not answer your question about traveling to the U.S. without a visa. That is a question for your country’s immigration department and U.S. foreign visitor policy. We do not provide medical letters of necessity for cosmetic surgery procedures, such as rhinoplasty,  to any international inquires or consultations. One has to work through the proper visitor/immigration procedures for their country and abide by the regulations for U.S. foreign visitors.
