Can someone be with me?
You will be required to have someone take you to and from surgery i.e. Spouse, Family member or Friend. You may uber to the facility, however, you must have someone responsible for your care and wellbeing to pick you up. You will need to ask the facility directly if the person caring for you is able to stay during your procedure.
When can I travel?
Depending on the procedure, we do not recommend air travel until after you are seen for your post-operative visit. (approx. 2 weeks)
How long before I can work out, how long before I can swim?
Your provider will discuss with you when you can resume your normal activities at your pre-op visit.
How long will my surgery take?
Every surgical procedure is different, but most cases can be anywhere from 1 hour to 5 hours.
What is the total cost for my surgery?
Your surgical coordinator will verify your insurance for the surgeon’s fee only.
Each surgical facility/hospital will also verify your insurance benefits and a representative will call you separately. Anesthesia is a separate charge which the facility can give you information on.
Do I have to have a Covid test, when do I go?
Some facilities require a COVID/PCR/NAAT test regardless of your vaccination status. Your surgical coordinator will provide you with a testing form prior to your surgery. In most cases you will be required to test 3-5 days prior to your scheduled procedure. Home testing kits will not be accepted.
Will I be able to drive after surgery?
No. Your provider will discuss when you can resume your normal activities.
How come no one has called me back from the hospital about preregistering?
You will be mailed a pre-operative packet with instructions on how to pre-register with the facility. Due to high volume, some facilities will not call the patient until the week of surgery.
When will the hospital contact me with what I will owe?
Every facility is different on when they will call you. We will provide you with facility contact information. Patients are encouraged to call ahead of time to get a preliminary quote.
Can I wear nail polish, can I have my toes done?
Each facility has different requirements. Please contact them directly with the information provided to you by your surgical coordinator.
I have hair extensions is that ok?
Hair extensions are not recommended. Please discuss with your doctor at your pre-operative visit.
