At the initial consultation, your health history will be reviewed and the procedures you are interested in will be explained in great detail. Any alternative procedures, as well as the risks and benefits of surgery will be discussed. You will view before and after photographs of Dr. Lawton’s patients, and all of your questions will be answered.
During the examination, the particular part of your body that you are interested in changing will be evaluated. You will have the opportunity to point out characteristics of your anatomy that you would like to improve. After an extensive discussion, you and Dr. Lawton will arrive at the surgical plan that will best achieve your goals. It is our commitment that you leave this initial visit with a clear understanding of your surgical options, so you may make an informed decision. We are happy to answer any questions you may think of later by telephone, email, or at another private consultation. There is never an additional charge for these subsequent visits.
The nurse will provide you with a fee quote which will cover the surgeon’s fees, anesthesiologist’s fees, operating room costs, implants (if needed), laboratory tests, surgical vitamins, and all follow-up visits. You will then have an opportunity to meet the patient care coordinator, who is responsible for surgery scheduling. The patient coordinator will also provide you with all the details regarding financing.
