People often wonder what will happen at the consultation. Each office has their own protocol, so no two consultations will be the same. I’ll break down how we do consultations at The Bougainvillea Clinique and why!
-We offer consultations Monday through Friday. Tuesdays with Dr. Hartog and the remainder of the week with his surgical consultant, personally trained by Dr. Hartog. We understand that everyone has different schedules and commitments, so we work hard to accommodate our patients. Ideally, patients like to meet Dr. Hartog but he has to have time to operate too. If you have an appointment with his surgical consultant, at your pre-op visit you’ll meet with Dr. Hartog personally. Bottom line is that we’ll make sure you meet with Dr. Hartog before your procedure!
-Breast augmentation consultation patients often want to size the day they consult. However, this is a very time consuming process. Therefore, we reserve sizing for the pre-operative visit. A lot of time is blocked out for pre-op patients, so there is no rushed feeling for either the patient or pre-op nurse. Sizing is a big deal in patients minds and understandably so. It’s our goal to make sure that each patient is confident about the size they select.
-We do show all of our consultations before and after pictures of any procedure or procedures they may be interested in.
-We tour everyone through our ACHA accredited surgery center. Dr. Hartog is the only plastic surgeon in Orlando with a proper ACHA Medicaid surgery center.
-You will receive an exact quote. We will let you know what’s included and what’s not so that you can plan and budget for your procedure.
-We will answer ALL of your questions and help you with ANY concerns you have! Surgery is a big step and a lot of people are hearing words, medical jargon, for the first time in their lives. It’s our job to help break everything down and educate you every step of the way.
-Last but not least, we want to make you feel part of our wonderful family. This will be a relationship that will last a very long time!
We can’t wait to help you LOOK and FEEL YOUR BEST!
