Overview of Your Cosmetic Consultation
Your consultation is an important step as you consider cosmetic surgery. To help you through the process, we have included this guide for your consultation experience. Please note that the usual consult time is approximately one hour, although this time may vary depending on your health conditions and your specific procedure(s). A nominal consultation fee ($75) will be collected.
A receptionist will greet you promptly on arrival at the front desk. She will collect some basic information and your completed medical history sheets; to save time you can print out and complete the medical history forms prior to your arrival. You can then relax in our waiting area until our cosmetic patient coordinator begins the consultation. She will prepare you for the consultation process and offer beverages prior to you meeting your surgeon.

If you are unable to fill out the paperwork online, please click here to download our patient forms and bring them in on the day of your consultation. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your consultation so you have ample time to complete the required paperwork.
Next, our cosmetic patient coordinator will escort you to our consultation rooms and provide a brief introduction of your consult experience. With your permission, one of our nurses may need to take a picture of you for demonstration during your consultation and for our medical records. One of our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons will then meet with you. The surgeons pride themselves in spending a generous amount of one-on-one time during your consultation. The surgeon will review your medical history and have a personal discussion of your cosmetic enhancement goals and dislikes. Additionally, our surgeons will perform a focused physical exam. Our surgeons are highly qualified and will give you their best opinion as to which procedures fit your objectives. Similar before and after photos will be shown to you to demonstrate realistic surgical results.
Meeting with your Patient Care Coordinator
After your cosmetic consultation you will meet with our cosmetic patient coordinator again and go over the cost and financial details of the proposed procedure. If you have a specific time frame for your procedure, she will do her best to accommodate your schedule. Or, if you are in the information-gathering phase of exploring cosmetic surgery, she will be happy to answer any of your questions.
We are here for you. Our cosmetic patient coordinator will maintain close communication with you following your consultation. She is available for any questions you have. If additional time with our surgeons is needed she will arrange a second consultation at no cost. If you have any questions please give us a call at 919-785-0505.
