Choosing to undergo cosmetic surgery is a deeply personal, and sometimes difficult, decision. When deciding if cosmetic surgery is right for you, you should consider the following:
One of the best ways to decide if cosmetic surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Camp to discuss your expectations, goals, and any concerns you may have. During this time, Dr. Camp will:

Cosmetic surgery is performed to enhance or change a healthy, normal, functioning part of the body to improve appearance or self-esteem. Because cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure, the cost is typically not covered by most health insurance plans.
Reconstructive surgery is performed to correct a physical abnormality caused by a birth defect, injury or medical condition; to improve physical function or achieve a more normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is often covered by health insurance plans, though the level of coverage may vary by procedure.
Recovery time depends on the procedure, and can range anywhere from a few days to weeks or even months. It’s important to note that every patient responds to pain differently, and Dr. Camp will prescribe the appropriate pain medications to help minimize your discomfort. You should follow the post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Camp to allow your body time to heal and to achieve optimal results.
The long-term results of cosmetic surgery depend on the type of procedure performed, your age and your overall health. You should discuss your expectations for the outcome of your procedure during your pre-surgical consultation with Dr. Camp.
If you are considering cosmetic surgery, it’s important to be informed about the safety of your procedure and the expected results. Thousands of people undergo cosmetic surgery each year without complications. However, no surgical procedure is risk-free.
To reduce the risk of complications, you should inform Dr. Camp of your complete medical history, including any medications you take, prior to scheduling cosmetic surgery.
For enhanced safety, our patients can be assured that:
You should contact your insurance provider to verify the details of your plan’s coverage prior to your procedure. Cosmetic surgery is typically not covered by health insurance plans because it is elective. Many reconstructive procedures are covered by health insurance, although the level of coverage may vary.
