Comprehensive Pre-operative Visit
We believe strongly that an informed patient is more confident and relaxed. This requires good communication between doctor and patient, so we like to set up a comprehensive pre-operative visit once your surgery is scheduled. During this visit, we will review your procedure in detail and answer any questions or concerns you may have. We will review and discuss your medical history and order any additional tests. You will receive thorough post-operative instructions and all necessary prescriptions, as well as a post-operative packet to take home.
The Day of Surgery
On the day of surgery, you will be greeted warmly and welcomed to our comfortable surgical facility. You will meet other members of our aesthetic surgical team, as well as a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. Your surgeon will also meet with you again to review your case and discuss your care.
The operating room is our sanctuary. Our total focus is on you. Our complete commitment is to your safety and creating the most beautiful result in a natural way. After surgery, you will awaken in the pleasant recovery room. Our surgical nurses will be ever present to care for you until you are ready to go home.
After returning home, you will be contacted by phone to see how you are feeling and to answer any questions you might have. During the first week after your surgery, you will return to our office to begin your post-operative care and recovery.
We are here for you every step of the way to assist you and keep you well informed. Your follow up care includes lifetime post-operative appointments to assure that your results have met your expectations.
Advances in plastic surgery have been dramatic. Recovery time has been improved for virtually all cosmetic procedures. Advanced technology, small incisions, and new techniques all improve recovery times. Tissues are handled gently during surgery, and new post-operative care techniques are used to limit swelling and bruising. This allows patients to recover much more quickly. In many cases, patients return to work and activities after a long weekend. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call us. Your surgeon and/or his staff are available 24 hours a day… for you.
Every patient needs information about payment options and potential insurance benefits. We hope the following information will be helpful.
A number of payment options are possible, such as credit cards, personal check, cashier’s check, or cash. The options may be used individually or combined as necessary. All payments for surgery are due in full at least ten business days prior to the scheduled procedure. If you are paying with a personal check, payment in full is required a minimum of ten business days prior to the date of your surgery. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
