Who is the best candidate for plastic surgery?
The best candidate for plastic surgery is someone with a positive body image and realistic expectations about their outcome, realizing that every body type is different and the healing process affects everyone differently. Dr. Humphreys, Dr. Whidden, and Dr. Byers will discuss all of these issues and concerns with you in a consultation and discuss all your health issues before booking a date for surgery.
How long is the wait to book a consultation and surgical date?
Due to the high demand for our Doctors, our consultation and surgical days can fill up quickly. We suggest you book your consultation 6 – 8 weeks before you book your consultation 6 – 8 weeks before your desired surgical date. When determining your surgical date, choose when to take up to two weeks off of work and rigorous activity to allow for healing.
Does Insurance or Alberta Health Care cover surgery?
Generally, most plastic surgery is not covered by Health Care or private insurance plans. A few cases, such as breast reduction and reconstruction, are fully protected.
Where is surgery performed?
