During Consultation

At East Coast Advanced Plastic Surgery, we know there are no “one-size-fits-all” solutions. Every treatment program begins with an in-depth consultation so we can get to know you, your health history and your expectations. During your consultation, the doctor will review the type of procedure you’re considering and discuss the potential risks and the outcome you can realistically expect from the procedure. The doctor may also perform a brief physical exam to help guide treatment recommendations and discuss other options that might produce better results for you. Be prepared to talk openly with your doctor about other health issues, medication use or concerns you may have about your surgery or your health. Once you feel comfortable with your choice, your doctor will work with you to create an approach that’s based on your unique needs to ensure the best possible outcome.

We believe in educating our patients, so they understand all their options, as well as the effects of surgery. At our practice, we’re not just focused on helping our patients look good on the outside – we’re also focused on helping them feel better about themselves and their lives. We take extra care to ensure your expectations are in line with the type of procedure you’ve selected so you can feel confident it’s the best choice for you. Our physicians have in-depth training in advanced surgical techniques developed to enhance surgical safety and outcomes, and we use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the best patient care possible.

We’ll also help you plan for your procedure, including working with your insurance company and helping you decide how much time you’ll need to recover comfortably. For some patients, plastic surgery can bring about psychological or emotional responses; we’ll discuss those changes as well. And we can also speak with family members who may have questions or concerns of their own.

Before Your Procedure

Undergoing a surgical procedure isn’t something to be taken lightly, and it isn’t unusual to be a little nervous or anxious about the procedure. Taking the time to choose the best surgeon for your needs and then talking openly with your doctor about your concerns can provide a lot of reassurances to help you face your procedure with confidence. When choosing a doctor, you want one who’s experienced in the type of procedure you’re having done and who has high success rates and patient satisfaction rates. You also want to be sure your doctor is willing to take the time to talk to you about your concerns and answer your questions, before and after surgery. At East Coast Advanced Plastic Surgery, we’re a patient-centered practice. Your needs are our first priority. Every procedure we perform is customized to suit each patient’s individual needs, from consultation to postoperative follow-up, and we’re always ready to answer your questions, from billing concerns to post-op care and everything in between.
