Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked plastic surgery questions. As individuals and circumstances are always different, please ask Dr. Bradley for more information about a particular procedure and what you can expect.
Can I afford plastic surgery?
The cost of plastic surgery has commonly been misconstrued as something only the rich could afford. However, many of Dr. Bradley’s patients are working, middle-class individuals with double incomes. Financing is available through a third party, private lender. Visa , Mastercard, and Discover are also accepted. For a more detailed discussion on financing, contact Dr. Bradley for a consultation at 618-355-0993.
How much will this procedure cost?
The cost of a procedure varies depending on the type of procedure, the amount of time it takes to perform the procedure, and the complexity of the procedure. It’s important that you describe exactly what you hope to achieve through surgery. Be very up-front in describing your likes and dislikes so Dr. Bradley can tailor a procedure to fit your needs. For a more detailed discussion on cost, contact Dr. Bradley for a consultation at 618-355-0993.
How much time off work will I need to fully recover from this procedure?
The amount of time you will need to take off work is directly related to the complexity of the procedure. The more tissue, fat, muscle and skin you have involved the longer recovery time you can expect. For a more detailed discussion on recovery time, contact Dr. Bradley for a consultation at 618-355-0993.
When is a good time to have surgery?
The best time to schedule a surgery is when you have plenty of time to recover from the procedure. For example, if you are planning to have laser surgery you need to protect yourself from the sun for 3 months. The best time of the year to have the procedure would be in the fall or winter, so you won’t have such a difficult time avoiding the sun.
