Like all of the best NY plastic surgeons, Dr. Thomas Loeb offers an in-depth discussion of each new patient’s goals and aesthetic motivations during a one-on-one session. Various surgical procedures will be outlined, and anticipated results will be thoroughly explained with the aid of computer imaging.
While approximate costs for cosmetic surgeries can be provided via phone, a private consultation with Dr. Loeb will ensure every aspect – from costs and risks to post-operative recovery – of your selected procedure are fully understood.
