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.
