Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What is the price of a consultation for cosmetic surgery?
Answer: We have two options available. We offer nurse consultations at no charge, which are very helpful for patients who want to learn as much as possible about the procedure(s) of interest to them. This is a great opportunity to have a trained professional help you understand the procedures that will help you achieve your personal goals. You will also be able to obtain cost estimates, and get answers to questions that are most important to you. Many patients appreciate this opportunity and we are pleased to offer it.
Other patients prefer to meet initially with the physician of their choice. They may have already done extensive research about the procedures of interest to them, or they may have very busy schedules that make it difficult for them to schedule multiple appointments. This initial consultation fee is $50.
To schedule either type of appointment please call our scheduling desk at 256-536-4448 or toll free 800-949-4448. We look forward to meeting with you.
Question: What is the recovery time for cosmetic surgical procedures?
Answer: In general most patients recover from a few days to a few weeks depending upon the extent of the surgery they choose to receive, and their normal day to day activities, and work requirements. You will be able to return to light activities within a few days to a week. More strenuous activities can be resumed based on your recovery response and the subsequent instructions of your medical team.
Question: How can I tell what procedures are right for me?
Answer: There is a broad range of both surgical and non-surgical interventions available to you to improve your appearance. Ultimately you will be the one to decide what is best for you. Our job is to meet with you in consultation, learn your desires, and educate you about the procedures available to help you meet your goals. It is important to be very comfortable with your physician and nursing staff, and to be open with them about what you like, what you don’t, and what you hope for. We will help you understand what is possible, and work with you to plan a course of treatment. The initial consultation and subsequent office visits are invaluable in this respect. We want you to be an integral part of the medical team so that together we can achieve the best possible results for you

Question: Why no surgery fees?
Answer: We are often asked why we don't post prices for surgery on our website. The easiest answer is "it depends on the patient". Every patient is different. So, every surgery is customized to meet your needs and goals.
Many factors go into how much a procedure costs. Such as:
- Type and complexity of procedure
- Time and effort your procedure requires (do you have a little bit of tissue to remove or a large amount?)
- Type of equipment needed for the procedure (liposuction, lasers, etc.)
Additional elements of the total cost may include:
- Anesthesia fees
- Operating room fees
- Hospital or surgical center stay
- Lab fees
- Type of device beeing implanted
- and more
If you have a question, please call to schedule an appointment for a consultation. A consult with a nurse is free and a surgeon consult costs $50. We will give you a surgery fee quote after your initial consultation.
