WHAT TO EXPECT
Your initial consultation is scheduled with a surgeon, allowing up to an hour to review all aspects of contemplated surgery, frequently with pictures of prior similar cases to illustrate recovery and representative results of prior similar cases. Most cosmetic surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in our AAAASF accredited on-site surgical center where we maintain two private operating rooms. Experienced anesthesia and nursing staff are dedicated solely to our practice. We avoid use of inhalation (gas) based anesthetics and ventilators, preferring sophisticated regional and local anesthetics in combination with monitored sedatives (intravenously administered). Patients are fully asleep for the duration of surgery, but breathe on their own throughout and typically recover rapidly and comfortably, free of nausea, and are quickly able to return home once surgery is completed. Follow-up care is attentive and comprehensive. Surgeons are available 24 hours daily, including weekends, and calls are promptly taken at any time.
