Your Consultation with Dr. Izquierdo
Cosmetic surgery is a personal choice and patients need to develop a comfortable and trusting relationship with their surgeon. Patients seen in consultations will have a thorough examination and review of your medical history.
Dr. Izquierdo strives to understand his patients’goals and concerns so that he can outline a plan for the most natural and pleasing result. Sometimes a combination of procedures may be appropriate to produce a balanced outcome and avoid discrepancies of shape, size, or skin tone
There is a nominal charge for a first time consultation. If you decide to have surgery by Dr. Izquierdo, the consultation fee is credited to your surgical fee. As with any professional service by a dentist, accountant, or lawyer, you are requesting information and an opinion regarding your particular questions and problems.
Dr. Izquierdo has been in practice for over 25 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience that guide your examination and options.
We know there are practices that provide “free consultations.” However, you will likely not receive a forty-five minute to one hour examination and discussion from the surgeon regarding your concerns.
Many times, these practices have ancillary medical personnel provide you with the information, and the doctor may “pop in” for a brief time.
Dr. Izquierdo believes that plastic surgery should have both parties engaged in the process and in the decision making. This can only be achieved if there are frank discussions regarding surgery, complications, risks, and results.
