Each patient is unique, and Dr. Godek will be honest in telling you if the procedure you are considering can best meet your goals or if there is something else he would suggest based on your desired results, lifestyle, and expectations. Your comprehensive consultation should leave you without any questions or concerns left unanswered. Dr. Godek will create an individualized treatment plan based on your needs.

Staff & Facilities
Most surgeries are performed at the Toms River Surgery Center, a private surgical facility designed to provide a high level of care, safety, and comfort to patients. The facility is staffed by extensively trained team members dedicated to treating all patients like family. The center meets strict requirements in providing quality surgical care, and it is certified by Medicare and fully accredited by the Joint Commission for Ambulatory Surgical Centers.
Computer imaging is an important part of our consultation process, as we want our patients to be fully aware of the potential results from desired procedures. High-resolution digital photographs are used to create life-like results for certain types of procedures. VECTRA® 3D imaging is a new technology that uses actual patient photographs and simulates the possible results. Three-dimensional images of the patient’s face or body can be digitally modified based on desired treatment, techniques, and cosmetic goals to visualize multiple possibilities. While it is important to remember that no technology can predict the future with 100 percent accuracy, the VECTRA® 3D imaging system can give patients a general idea of what the ultimate results may look like.
