One of our goals is to enhance your beauty with the most natural results possible. Patient education is key in obtaining your objectives, thus we encourage your questions and want you to be involved in this process. Through our discussions/consultation all of your concerns will be addressed. The emotions and feelings our patients bring to us are all unique.
Sharing confidence and gaining trust is just as important as we move toward restoring your beauty and renewing your inner strength. Once your decision for cosmetic or reconstructive surgery has been made, it is important to know that the success of your procedure is greatly dependent on the quality of your surgeon. Dr. Heir has extensive training & experience in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures for the face and body. Sacramento Surgical Arts PC utilizes the most advanced surgical methods and facilities.
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any X-rays if applicable
- A list of medications you are presently taking
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms.
This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A pre-operative consultation is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink 8 hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
If your physician has taken X-Rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
