Your Consultation

The consultation process is critically important in determining the needs and desires of the patient. The decision to undergo plastic surgery is highly personal, and the physicians of Specialists in Plastic Surgery, P.A. want to ensure that our patients are comfortable with their choices.
Advanced cosmetic surgery procedures of the face and body are emphasized in our practice. All procedures are specifically designed to meet your individual needs.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Russell will listen carefully to your cosmetic concerns, discuss the treatment options, and recommend a plan to achieve your goals. You will have ample time to have your questions answered and to understand the realistic expectations of your cosmetic surgery procedure.
Our patient coordinator will discuss the surgical fees with you and will provide scheduling options for your procedure. A pre-operative visit will be arranged, at which time you will receive all instructions specific to your surgery, be provided with the appropriate prescriptions, and have an opportunity to have any remaining questions answered.
The entire consultation process will be carried out in our spacious and elegant office, which has been designed for your comfort and privacy.
