Procedure Instructions

Pre-Op

Pre–op skin care treatments are designed to stimulate and condition the skin prior to your surgical procedure, creating, clean, healthy, supple skin which can help with the healing process following surgery.

Pre op treatments may include procedures such as: Customized facials, glycolic peels, IPL Photo rejuvenation, microdermabrasion, and an at-home daily skin care regimen to maximize skin preparation for surgery.

See individual procedures for specific pre-op instructions.

Post-Op

Equally important is the Post Op phase following your surgery. Your skin will be very sensitive after your cosmetic procedure so it is important to know what products to avoid and what products you should use for your specific skin type. Our Skin Care Center offers several lines of pharmaceutical grade skin care products which we feel will give our patients the results they are looking for. Our licensed Aestheticians will be happy to evaluate your skin and design a skin care program just for you.

Cosmetic surgery is designed to improve your appearance, but it does not stop the aging process. That is why it is so important to continue with a good in-home skin care regimen and regular follow up treatments to help maintain the results achieved from your surgery as well as the overall youthfulness and health of your skin.
