Your Consultation

After you make your consultation appointment, you should look to your mail because you will quickly receive a welcome packet that will include a confirmation of your appointment, intake forms to fill out, and a map and driving directions. Click here to download patient paperwork.
Your packet will also include some basic information about Dr. Gayoso as well as some specific information about the procedure or procedures you are considering. You are encouraged to read through this information and bring any questions you may still have to the consultation.

Dr. Gayoso doesn't believe in fly-by" consultations. Instead, he will take the time to listen to your concerns and goals, answer all your questions, and give detailed recommendations. He will talk to you, but also perform a physical exam, and help you understand the procedure by showing "before and after pictures of previous patients . You will also meet Amy Thomas, Dr. Gayoso's nurse of 10 years.

After you have worked out a surgical plan with Dr. Gayoso, you will meet with Lara Hartford to review fees, logistics, and other questions you may have. At this time, you will discuss financial considerations, including the possibility of financing plans for your surgery. Lara will be your surgical "concierge," always on-hand and available to take care of any concerns or issues may have related to your surgery. She makes herself available for you 24/7 with her cell phone.

Lara will schedule your surgery at the accredited Bayfront Same Day Surgery Center . You will be given a preoperative information packet. This includes all the information you need to get ready for surgery.

You will return to our office for your preoperative appointment 2 weeks before surgery. At this appointment you will discuss the details of your surgery again and come up with a finalized surgical plan. This is where your preoperative photos will be taken. If you are a breast augmentation patient, this is also where you will determine the size and type of implant you will use for your procedure. You will meet with Amy at this appointment as well. She will go over all the preoperative and postoperative information you need to know. At this appointment, you will also sign your informed consent documents.

After your surgery, you will have a number of follow-up appointments at regular intervals to ensure your healing is progressing as expected and that your results are shaping up as they should. You should also feel free to contact Lara with any questions or concerns you may have during the postoperative period, and she can help you get answers for any questions.

Even after your final follow-up consultation, you remain a part of our family of patients, and we welcome ongoing communication about how you are enjoying the results of your procedure.

The consultation process awaits just one thing, your call. Please contact us today to start on the road to your plastic surgery results. Helping patients in St Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa achieve their cosmetic surgery goals!

  • Form stable breast implants: What you need to know 

    For years, women interested in breast augmentation have had only two options: saline implants or traditional silicone implants. But a third option is now available, and it’s designed to be safer and more natural-looking than its predecessors. It's called a form stable implant, but due to its consistency, it’s also often known as a “gummy bear” implant.
