Plastic surgery is the art and science of restoring to the patient ideal form and function, to enhance them cosmetically or aesthetically, make them beautiful for life or whole again after trauma, anomalies of birth, burns or cancer. When that function is restored, it may lead to improved activities of daily living. When that appearance is surgically rejuvenated, it may lead to an improved self-image and more confidence. I have often said, "if plastic surgeons only perform reconstructive surgery, they have no art, if they only perform aesthetic surgery, they have no soul." It takes an emphasis on form and function to complete the picture.

It is customary to pay fees for medical service after the appointment is concluded and just before you leave the building. Those fees include the normal, usual and expected fees of medical consultations, office visits and any minor surgical procedures you may have had in the office. We feel this practice actually helps lower your medical costs by better containing our overhead. Otherwise, if we were to bill our patients, our fees would then have to include more bookkeeping and record keeping costs and perhaps another colleague to two to do the work. But you don’t have to pay a fee after every office visit. In the practice of reconstructive surgery, the usual, normal procedure is to include at no cost to you any postoperative visits for about three months. Likewise, the fees you pay for cosmetic procedures will include your after procedure visits up to six months for the same condition.
