I personally want to assure you that your cosmetic consultation will be non-stressful, and that it is simply an educational experience to help you make a well informed decision. There is never any pressure to make a decision or commitment at the time of the consultation. You are always given the opportunity to take your time and to think about what was discussed. After your consultation you should write down any questions that you may have and you are always welcome to come in for a second consultation so that I may answer your questions.
My goals of the consultation are to first understand the patient’s concerns and expectations, and second to educate the patient of the treatment options available to them for their specific concerns. Once I understand your concerns and expectations, I will perform an examination of your skin and facial features. I will then explain to you your treatment options, whether it is non-surgical, surgical, or both non-surgical and surgical interventions. I am always very mindful of cost, and I will give you a breakdown of the cost effectiveness of the different treatment options.
We believe in building a strong relationship with our patients by spending that extra time to listen to your concerns, provide education and offer suggestions for all available treatment options. In order to give you a proper consultation, we allocate a significant amount of our time. For this reason, a nominal fee is charged for Cosmetic Consultations.
Estimates are provided for non-surgical treatments and quotes are given for surgical treatments. We honor our surgical quotes for 1-year following your consultation. We will apply the consultation fee towards procedures over $1,000.
