Your Consultation

When scheduling a cosmetic consultation, we do require a $75 non-refundable deposit in order to reserve your appointment time. This is most efficiently paid by credit card, but we will work with you if you prefer another payment method. This deposit ensures that valuable consultation time is available to those who are truly committed to learning about their aesthetic options, and will be applied to your choice of surgical procedure or aesthetic service. In order to efficiently accommodate all of our patients' needs, we request at least 24-hours’ notice in the event you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. This gives us adequate time to reschedule patients appropriately and avoid disruption in patient care.
