Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Dr. Lee is well versed in the latest techniques in oral, facial, and cosmetic surgery. He will discuss your concerns, goals and expectations before recommending a treatment plan. After identifying the treatment plan, Dr. Lee will then discuss the procedures in detail, along with the recovery period of each procedure. At Cumberland Surgical Arts, our goal is to educate our patients on their options and assist them in making a well-informed decision. The consultation appointment is scheduled for 20 minutes to 60 minutes depending on the surgical services consulting for.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any X-rays if applicable (x-rays must be current within 12 months)
- A list of medications you are presently taking
- If you have medical or 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 legal guardian at the consultation visit.
A pre-operative appointment is mandatory for patients undergoing IV or general anesthesia for cosmetic surgery. We will inform you if this will be necessary for your scheduled procedure. This appointment is scheduled for 2 weeks prior to the surgical procedure. At this appointment, the treatment plan will be verified, consents will be reviewed and completed, prescriptions given, pre-operative photos taken, post-operative instructions explained, fees collected, lab work reviewed and patient questions will be answered completely.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, heart murmurs, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication or vitamin and herbal supplements (i.e. heart medications, insulin, aspirin, blood-thinners (Coumadin or Plavix), Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E, etc.) If you are diabetic, please bring your own glucose monitor.
If your physician or dentist 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. X-rays must be within 12 months.
