Policies and Procedures

We will only perform procedures deemed safe, appropriate and beneficial for the patient. There may be times when we are unable to provide the service requested.

The plastic surgery resident is your physician. The resident will perform your surgery (under the attending physician’s supervision) and provide your postoperative care. A plastic surgery attending physician will supervise the procedure and will be available if a problem or complication should arise.

Confidential preoperative and postoperative photographs will be required of all patients and will be used to assist in care and as a learning tool for residents.

Surgical quotes are estimates only and may be subject to change. Some fees may be incurred beyond those included in the surgical price quote. Payment for all surgical procedures is required in advance. Surgical procedures are out-of-pocket expenses; insurance will not be accepted. Services rendered for complications or revisions are not included in the original payment. The attending physician has approved the surgical plan and all fees must be fully collected before surgery can be scheduled.

Surgical dates cannot be guaranteed. There are rare situations when a surgery may be rescheduled due to a hospital emergency or other unforeseen delays in the operating room schedule. Pre-surgical evaluation by a medical consultant — including blood work, EKG or chest x-ray — may be required, at the patient’s expense. If you fail to cancel a preoperative consultation more than 24 hours in advance, half the fee will be added to the next visit. If you fail to cancel an operation more than 24 hours in advance without legitimate medical reasons, half the surgeon’s fee will be kept by the Division without future credit.
