Your Consultation

New Patient Consultation

Elliott Rose

The initial consultation is an opportunity for you to discuss your wishes and expectations with Dr. Rose and to give you an opportunity to get to know him as well. Dr. Rose will explain at length the treatment options, techniques of the proposed surgery, and the risks involved. A video image will be taken of your face or body, and modified on the computer to simulate the desired surgical outcome. Dr. Rose will outline a customized plan designed to achieve your most optimal appearance. You will receive brochures and fact sheets describing your procedure and information about our office, services, and staff.


  

A medical history will be taken. It is a good idea to bring medical records that may be pertinent to the consultation and to alert Dr. Rose about allergies or health problems.

After you have met with Dr. Rose, the Office Administrator, Ms. Linda Ossias, will speak with you regarding costs and scheduling. Some reconstructive procedures are covered by insurance. If this is the case, a comprehensive letter of predetermination of benefits will be submitted to the insurance company prior to surgery. Please bring your insurance information and ID forms to the initial consultation to expedite the process. Financing may be arranged through a third party institution.

Video Imaging

An important element of the initial consultation is the use of sophisticated imaging software which assists Dr. Rose in analyzing the face or body and enables him to project a “reasonable outcome” of the surgery. In the past, the plastic surgeon has used adjectives such as “elegant” or “refined” to describe his visual perception of the anticipated surgical results to the patients. These descriptions, based on the surgeon’s intuitive creativity and experience, may differ from what the patient has in mind. By utilizing imaging technology, the gap between the surgeon and patient’s expectations is bridged by a visual representation approximating the surgical changes.

Video Imaging

We use Mirror II Imaging Software (developed by Canfield Scientific Inc.) to modify the video image and develop a surgical plan that is clear to both patient and surgeon. We eliminate surprises and give you, the patient, a participating role in the decision-making process. Dr. Rose benefits by being able to develop a map of the surgical plan that he can review with the patient at the preoperative visit.

Despite the fact that there is no guarantee that the final outcome will precisely match the projected computer image, in Dr. Rose’s experience, the actual surgical outcome is often better than the projected computer image because of the three-dimensionality of the final result. Nevertheless, all patients are required to sign an “informed consent” prior to medical imaging and photography.

Getting Back to Normal

Dr. Rose and his staff will monitor your recuperative process closely for the first few weeks after surgery. In most cases, you will be able to resume your normal activities within 1-4 weeks from the time of your procedure.

After surgery, our office can refer you to a skilled makeup specialist who will help you minimize the appearance of scars or discoloration. A kit of skin care products is included in most cosmetic surgical packages.
