We charge a fee for our cosmetic consultations because we believe that our patients deserve to have all of their questions answered. Surgeons who do not charge for the initial consultation will often send their nurse in to see you and answer questions, and then make a “guest appearance.” We meet with you after a brief initial screening, and then spend as much time as necessary to answer your questions and discuss the procedures that make the most sense for you. Finding out that you are not a candidate for a certain procedure, or that another procedure would be more beneficial, is valuable information and requires an expertise for which most patients feel good about paying.
Cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance policies. We usually require a $1,500 deposit at the time of scheduling, and the remainder is paid at your pre-operative visit. We do take VISA, Mastercard and American Express, as well as personal checks.
We also participate in the Care Credit, GreenSky Patient Solutions, and Allegacy Federal Credit Union financing programs for patients who wish to finance their surgery.
