Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable and knowledgeable as possible so that you can make an informed decision. We know from decades of experience that establishing a personal rapport between you and your surgery team is very important—it encourages openness and honesty.
Our experienced, compassionate staff works with you to educate you about the procedure, learn your goals, screen your medical history and ensure you’re an ideal candidate for surgery. We also take photos during your free consult to establish realistic expectations, right from the start. Our team uses advanced digital imaging software to show how you can benefit from facial plastic surgery. These images are yours to keep and are emailed to you after the consultation.
Your complimentary plastic surgery consultation will typically take about an hour but can vary on a case-by-case basis. We never rush through a consultation, as we want to ensure you feel comfortable and confident in your decision to work with us. Contact our Tampa office to schedule yours today.
