Complementary Plastic Surgery Consultations
Your initial complementary consultation provides a chance for you to ask questions and explore your plastic and cosmetic surgery treatment options — including non-surgical 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 cosmetic surgical procedures you choose, Dr. LaPatka may use advanced digital imaging so that you can visualize the effect of different techniques using 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 cosmetic surgery 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 plastic surgery patients as well.
Your cosmetic surgery consultation will be conducted in a private room in our comfortable and quiet office in Santa Barbara. Spouses or friends are welcome to accompany you.
