FAQs

How do I know which procedure is best for me?

We offer a large variety of procedures at our Orange County center, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of the options. Fortunately, our trained and experience surgeons are dedicated to helping you choose the procedures that will be the most effective at correcting any abnormalities or simply boosting your self-esteem. We encourage you to meet with one of our doctors to talk about the areas that you would like to improve so that you can hear about which options would be best for you.

How long until I can return to work?

We understand that you want to return to your responsibilities quickly. The amount of time that you need to wait to return to work, along with resuming exercise and other regular activities, differs from one procedure to the next. Your doctor will let you know when it is safe to return to specific activities.

Should I do anything different the day of my surgery?

Your surgeon will talk to you about any medications you should be taking or fasting guidelines that you need to follow. Additionally, avoid using any perfumes, make-up, or hair products the day of your surgery. For your safety and comfort, and to keep the procedure going with ease, it’s important to follow all of your Orange County surgeon’s instructions.

What if I have a question about my procedure?

We welcome you to contact our office at any time if any questions about your procedure arise. Additionally, please call us if you have any scheduling conflicts or if you have any questions following your procedure.

What should I bring with me the day of my procedure?

Since we are an outpatient center, allowing you to rest and recover in the comfort of your own home, we recommend that you have a friend or family member ready to drive you home after your procedure. We also need you to bring a copy of your ID, along with billing information and a change of clothes.

Will my doctor track my progress and healing?

In most cases, you will have follow-up visits to check up on how you are doing after your procedure. Some surgeries, such as Lap-Band placement, involve more extensive follow-up. Also, you can always call our office if you have any questions or concerns after your procedure.
