What to expect from your consultation

On your first visit (consultation) you will meet directly with Dr. Eckhaus to discuss your concerns and goals. Consultations often take 30 minutes but may be longer with more complex or combined procedures. He will go through a detailed history and examination and explain whether you are a candidate for any surgical or non-surgical options. Dr. Eckhaus will endeavor to teach you as much as possible about your options for cosmetic improvement so that you can make well-educated decisions.

You will then meet with Dr. Eckhaus’ patient care coordinator , who will provide you with a quote and guide you through the costs involved. A second visit is strongly encouraged to allow you to go home, think about what was discussed at the first consultation and follow up with any remaining questions. Pre-operative and post-operative photos are used as an educational tool when appropriate during these visits.

What to expect from Dr. Eckhaus

You can expect someone who will listen to you and your goals and desires. Dr. Eckhaus will provide you with an individualized and detailed plan designed to achieve your best possible result. You can expect the utmost attention to meticulous detail in both the planning and execution of your surgery.

You can expect him to be with you throughout the process.  He views post-operative care during the recovery phase as just as important as your consultation and surgery. Though not common, complications are always a possibility with surgery.

You can expect that he will be even more present by your side were this to occur to manage, care and treat the complication. You can expect a true professional who cares for all of his patients with compassion and respect, and who practices plastic surgery because he truly loves it.
