Your first step prior to scheduling any cosmetic procedure is to schedule a plastic surgery consultation with us. You can schedule your free confidential consultation with our board certified plastic surgeonWe're located in Metropolitan Detroit (Bingham Farms, MI) All plastic surgery consultations are conducted with the plastic surgeon that will be performing your surgery. Our surgeon will provide an ethical and expert opinion in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to address your particular concerns. Furthermore the plastic surgeon will explain the effects and limitations of plastic surgery, the type of anesthesia used, and what to expect after surgery. Details of fees, payment, insurance, and financing options will be discussed with you by the Patient Coordinators.
Cosmetic Surgery Expectations
During your plastic surgery consultation, the surgeon will give you his recommendations as to which procedure(s) will give you the best result, according to your particular concerns. Although cosmetic surgery can frequently achieve remarkable improvements in a person’s appearance, there is a limit as to how much improvement can be obtained. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss the limitations of the recommended procedure in order for you to have a realistic expectation as to what can and what cannot be accomplished through surgery.
Scheduling Your Plastic Surgery
Our plastic surgeon performs surgery every day except weekends and holidays. You may schedule your surgery in person on the day of your consultation or over the phone at a later date. You will have the opportunity to consult with your surgeon again, prior to your actual surgery. The purpose of the second plastic surgery consultation is to review the details of the surgery with your surgeon, as well as to ask any questions that you did not ask at the first consultation or thought of in the meantime. In addition, you will have a “pre-post operative” teaching session with our office nurse/medical assistant that will outline how to prepare before the surgery and what to expect during your recovery period.
Your Comfort - Anesthesia and Cosmetic Surgery Recovery Pain Management
Our goal is for you to have a positive experience, including a comfortable recovery from cosmetic surgery. We require a history and physical and laboratory tests before your surgery for your safety. During surgery, intra-venous sedation (IV sedation) is administered by an experienced Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). This will allow you to sleep through the entire procedure. General anesthesia may be used for certain procedures, in which case the surgery is performed in a hospital setting. Despite the type of anesthesia selected, there will be no pain during the operation. Post-operative pain during recovery is minimal for most procedures and varies with each individual. Pain medication is prescribed as appropriate.
Overnight Stay at Hospital
Most cosmetic procedures can be performed safely on an out-patient basis in our fully accredited on-site surgery center. For your safety and comfort, a hospital overnight stay is included for certain procedures.
Before and After Photographs
Photographs are taken of patients before and after plastic surgery. These photographs become part of the patient's record and are kept confidential. They are published only with written permission from the patient.
