Upon arriving at Dr. Raffi Hovsepian’s office in Beverly Hills or Newport Beach, you will be greeted by his friendly, professional staff who will lead you through the entire consultation process. The entire staff strives for excellence in providing the highest quality of care and to make the patient’s experience exclusive and second to none.
Do I need a consultation?
A consultation is the essential first step in your desire to refine, restore or enhance your appearance, whether surgically or through non-surgical treatments. It is mutually beneficial for you and Dr. Hovsepian to meet, discuss your goals and to ask questions, so that he may individually recommend your best treatment options and the resulting outcomes.
What happens during a consultation?
Your consultation generally begins with an introduction to our practice by a member of our staff, and a general history and discussion of your goals.
You will then meet Dr. Hovsepian for a complete and personalized evaluation. He will offer individualized recommendations regarding the best treatment options available to you.
The consultation concludes with extra time for answering any questions and providing you with the information you may need to make a completely confident, well-informed decision. You may schedule your procedure if you elect to undergo treatment.
Do I need to schedule my surgery at my consultation?
No. You may schedule surgery at any time that is appropriate for you, whether at the time of your consultation or at any appropriate time in the future. Surgeon fees presented at your consultation are valid for 3 months from the date of your consultation. Surgery center, anesthesia or recovery fees may change.
What if I have questions after my consultation?
You may contact our office and Aesthetic Coordinator at any time after your consultation with questions. If necessary you may schedule a second consultation.
Must I undergo photographs?
Photographs are an important part of your patient record and also serve as a reference throughout the course of your care. You will sign a specific consent for photographs that allows you to elect whether those photographs remain a fully private part of your patient record, or whether you will allow Dr. Hovsepian to use these for educational and research purposes. If you are coming for a facial consultation, please keep makeup to a minimum so Dr. Hovsepian can better evaluate your natural appearance both before and after surgery.
May a family member or friend accompany me to my consultation?
Yes, you may choose to bring a family member or friend to support you during your consultation.
