Q: Is there a charge for a cosmetic consult?
A: Dr. Viggiano has a $100 non-refundable fee for his cosmetic consultation. This payment is taken over the phone during scheduling. During your private consultation, Dr. Viggiano will spend usually around 30 minutes discussing with you your various surgical and non surgical options to obtain the look you are trying to achieve. The consultation fee becomes a credit in our office and can then be applied toward surgical procedures we offer.
Q: How much will my treatment cost?
A: The improvement you are seeking may be more affordable than you might imagine. Because Dr. Viggiano does so many types of treatment, it is not possible to list all the charges. Please call the office for pricing.
Q: Will insurance pay for my surgery?
A: Generally insurance will pay for the repair of a significant deformity or to improve function. It may pay for skin cancer removal, removal of any irritated lesion, and hand surgery. Insurance may pay for upper eyelid surgery if vision is affected and lower eyelid surgery for a lower lid that is rotated out so much so as to cause eye pain or tearing. Insurance never pays for facelifts, browlifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, improving prominent ears, breast enlargement, Skin Care Products, etc.
Q: How much weight will I lose after liposuction?
A: 1-4 pounds. Liposuction works best for localized areas of fat. Removal of even a pound of fat in one area can make a remarkable difference.
Q: How far in advance do I have to schedule my surgery?
A: Usually about 4 weeks.
Q: Does Dr. Viggiano remove tattoos?
A: No. Tattoo removal requires specialized lasers. We will gladly refer you for treatment.
Q: What can I do about pigment changes on my face?
A: Prescriptive strength skin care products with Retin-A® and hydroquinone can be used to reduce or eliminate these areas. (See the “ZO” section of this website.)
