The decision to have a cosmetic treatment or procedure is a very personal and important choice. You will ultimately base your decision solely on your own set of established priorities and goals. As an individual, your needs are specific and particular to your situation. Understanding this, Dr. Messa and his dedicated staff at the Weston Cosmetic Surgery Center customize our consultations to your desired need.
Within this process, our Patient Care Coordinator will provide you with additional information about the procedure(s) and, equally as important, allow you to become familiar with our team and us with you. Dr. Messa will also examine you, learn about your specific concerns and goals, discuss your individual case, listen, educate and support you in making your decision, with an informative process that includes a thorough discussion of available options, while answering any questions you may have.
In addition to discussing your cosmetic procedures in descriptive terms, Dr. Messa will provide examples of other patients results to help you visually see possible solutions.
Your consultation will include discussion of your treatment plan, which will entail costs and the financial policies, if it is determined by Dr. Messa that you are a good candidate for the procedure(s).
To discover how cosmetic procedures can improve your appearance, confidence, and total outlook on life, please call our office today (954) 659-7760 to schedule your confidential consultation.
