Learn the steps involved when working with the Aesthetic Surgery Center.
It’s exciting anticipating your new look! However, the decision to have cosmetic surgery is a significant consideration. Your first and most important step is to find the right plastic surgeon who is qualified, experienced and cares about you.Our surgeons and the entire team at the Aesthetic Surgery Center are professionals who are dedicated to providing you with excellent service and care.
By scheduling a personal consultation with our Aesthetic Surgery Center team, you will be able to discuss your options with the surgeon. To schedule your consultation, please call (608) 821-4000. The initial consultation is $60, which will be collected at your appointment. If you anticipate being late for your appointment, please call so we can make the appropriate arrangements. We ask that you fill out our New Patient Form prior to your appointment, and bring it with you to your consultation.
Your consultation with the cosmetic surgeon will involve an in-depth conversation about your goals, expectations and concerns. The surgeon will recommend the best options available to you, explain what the procedure involves and its potential risks. Patients typically spend approximately 45 minutes with the cosmetic surgeon. After meeting with the surgeon, a nurse or specialized technician may take photos, and you will be able to see the potential results of how you could look post-surgery using our digital imaging technology. Patients consulting about a possible breast augmentation procedure may also size for implants. You will then meet with our patient coordinator who will provide comprehensive education materials and review cost and payment details, sharing the financing option of using Care Credit. When you are ready to schedule your surgery, the patient coordinator will assist you. After this consultation, which typically lasts 1 to 1.5 hours, you will have all of the information necessary to make an informed decision about the procedure you are interested in.
Your safety and wellbeing are of the utmost importance. All cosmetic surgeries are performed at nationally accredited facilities, Dean and St. Mary's Outpatient Center or the Davis Duehr Dean - Surgery Center. Board-certified physician anesthesiologists will work alongside your cosmetic surgeon, using state-of-the-art medical and patient monitoring equipment during your surgery.
