Cosmetic Surgery Consultations
Your initial complementary consultation provides a chance for you to ask questions and explore your treatment options in a relaxed and comfortable environment. For the doctor, it’s an opportunity to learn about your goals, expectations, and medical history. The risks, as well as benefits, of plastic surgery and non-surgical procedures are always fully explained. Depending on the surgical procedures you choose, Dr. LaPatka may use advanced digital imaging so that you can visualize the effect of different techniques on your photo, right in the office.
You will have time to meet with our plastic surgery nurse, Heather Grieco, RN, BSN, ANS, in Santa Barbara. She will be able to answer any questions you may have about the pre- and post-operative experience, anesthesia and recovery. She will provide you with an estimate of cost and surgical date that meets your schedule. In addition to brochures and other sources of information, you will be given an opportunity to review before and after photographs of actual patients as well.
Your consultation will be conducted in a private room in our comfortable and quiet office. Spouses or friends are welcome to accompany you.
Please look through this website and learn about the different surgical and non-surgical procedures that we offer.
