Is there a fee for my consultation?
Many plastic surgeons who offer complimentary meetings actually pass you off to a "cosmetic consultant" or patient coordinator, or they may spend only a few moments with you.
As Dr. Teitelbaum schedules a large block of time for each prospective patient, and will always take as much time as you need to discuss your desires and your concerns, he does charge for the consultation and the fee is applied to surgery. There is usually an array of surgical options available, each involving different costs, risks, recoveries, scars, and results.
It is Dr. Teitelbaum's goal to explore these issues as thoroughly as possible, so that you can make a truly informed choice about what you want done. Whether you have the surgery done with Dr. Teitelbaum, by someone else, or not at all, you will be sure to leave with a dramatically enhanced understanding of your situation.
