Planning Your Surgery
We would like to have basic information for our administrative records. Your personal information is strictly confidential and will not be released to any person or organization without your written approval.
The doctor will talk to you about your wishes and desires. He will examine you and give you his opinion about how to achieve your goals. We will do our best to inform you about the actual process of preparing for, and recovering from, cosmetic or reconstructive surgery. Choosing a surgeon is an intensely personal decision. We encourage you to take time to ask the doctor and our staff any questions you may have. We believe the formation of a relationship built on confidence and mutual respect is an integral part of the process.
Some of our staff have had cosmetic surgery and you may talk with them about their experience and feelings about their results. Brochures are available, which you may read or take home.
When you briefly meet with the patient coordinator, she will discuss fees and costs. If you have a specific date in mind, we will do our best to accommodate your schedule. If you are still in the information-gathering phase, we will try to make sure that all of your questions are answered.
Prior to surgery, you will have an opportunity to discuss your concerns and wishes with your anesthesiologist.
Our consultation includes a second visit if you have further questions for the physician or any member of our staff. If you have any question about planning your surgery, please contact us at any time.
