FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

PLEASE FIND A LIST OF OUR MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS BELOW:

We do NOT take health insurance, as most health insurance companies do not cover cosmetic treatments. However, some procedures can be covered under Flexible Spending or Health Savings. In addition, medical financing options are available. Please discuss this with one of our administrative staff and view the options below.

  • How long do procedures usually take?
    Generally, liposuction procedures take between 2-4 hours and fat transfer procedures take about the same time.
  • Will I feel anything during my cosmetic surgery procedure?
    You will feel an initial stick from a lidocaine injection, but after that you will not feel much more during the procedure.
  • What is my recovery time?
    With most of our procedures, there is little to no down time. While many of our cosmetic surgery options provide fast results, it’s possible that the body will experience light bruising or swelling. Recovery time depends on the individual procedure. During your consultation, ask about the typical recovery time for your cosmetic surgery procedure.
  • Am I a good candidate?
    You will need to have a thorough one-on-one evaluation with one of our highly skilled medical providers to determine if you are a good candidate and chart out the best course of action to combat your facial or body complaint.
  • I have other medical conditions such as Hypertension, Diabetes, Hyperthyroidism….can I still be a candidate?

WHAT ARE SOME GENERAL THINGS FIRST TIME PATIENTS CAN DO TO PREPARE FOR AN APPOINTMENT?

  1. Write down all your skin, hair, or body complaints so you are prepared to discuss all your issues at your appointment. 
     

  2. Take pictures of all your skin complaint areas.  It’s always good to have some of your own pictures so you can compare your progress objectively.
     

  3. Gather and bring all your current face and hair products so we can fully document your current condition. This will also help in our discussion as to what may or may not be working.
     

  4. Completely fill out all the online forms prior to your visit. This will make things go faster with your check in process.
     

  5. Please come with a completely bare, naked face. This means no make-up please.
     

  6. If you have hair issues, it is be best if we could see and examine the scalp directly. Therefore, if you are “wearing hair”, please come with a removable unit such as a wig.  If you wear braids, it would be best if the hair was out instead of braided.
