How soon can I expect to be back at work?

This depends on the type of procedure, but a safe average would be that most cosmetic surgery patients can expect to be back to work within seven to ten days.

Will there be any scars?

The answer to this question is yes, however they will probably not be noticeable. A good surgeon will make every effort to keep scars as minimal as possible. The surgeon will try to hide them in the natural lines and creases of your skin. For a majority of procedures the scars will fade over time and be barely noticeable.

Is cosmetic surgery expensive?

Not as expensive as you may think. Over the years prices have come down and the quality has gone up. Most procedures are performed on an out-patient basis, so a hospital stay is rarely required. By eliminating the hospital stay, this reduces the cost dramatically. Prices now are reasonable so just about anyone can afford cosmetic surgery. In fact, almost half of the people who have plastic surgery make less than $40,000 a year.

Can I finance cosmetic surgery?

Financing is now made available to patients for cosmetic surgery. With low monthly payments made available to the patient, our staff can give you all the details and refer you to a bank or finance company. Our finance companies can usually approve an application in 24 to 48 hours.
