If you prefer, you can visit our Forms page to download, print, and complete hard copies of our patient and medical history forms and bring them along with you. When you arrive on the day of your consultation, we will review your paperwork and discuss any insurance questions you might have.
Because we value your time as much as you do, we do our best to begin your consultation as quickly as possible. We will show you to a private consult room where you will be introduced to your doctor and asked to describe the changes you'd like to make. Your medical history will be reviewed as well. We consider this part of the consultation to be a mutual interview, where both doctor and patient determine if they are a good fit for each other. We want you to feel comfortable speaking openly with your cosmetic surgeon and feel confident that your cosmetic goals will be achieved.
Next, you will be shown to an examination room where you will change into a gown in private. Your doctor will return to examine your areas of concern and take pre-operative measurements and photographs. Afterwards, your doctor will step out of the room and give you a chance to redress.
Once you are fully clothed, the doctor will return and review your procedure of interest in detail including pros and cons, surgical techniques, and possible risks. You will also have the opportunity to review before-and-after photos of previous patients to ensure you and your doctor have a common idea of your expectations. We make sure to provide plenty of time for you to ask questions and have any concerns addressed.
Finally, an office staff member will review fees and financing information and your scheduling options. You can schedule your procedure at this time or return for a subsequent consultation if you'd like to bring along a friend or family member. We encourage you to read our real patient stories to learn about the experiences previous patients have had with our practice. We want you to feel good about your decision to move forward with your procedure and become excited about the improvements that await you.
