During this one-hour visit with Dr. Louton and our plastic surgery staff, you can get all of the details on the surgery or surgeries you are interested in. If you are not sure where to start, Dr. Louton will have you share your body issues with him and discuss your aesthetic goals. Then, he will perform a thorough evaluation in order to recommend the optimal course of action.
You will have the opportunity to view many before and after photos to see how plastic surgery can make a difference in your appearance.
If you prefer, a nurse-only consultation is offered for patients who want additional information but are not ready to undergo an evaluation or speak with the doctor just yet. However, if you decide to move forward with a procedure, you will need to schedule a visit with Dr. Louton.
Skin care consultations are performed by Dr. Fanny Louton and her experienced staff.
