Preparing for Surgery
The decision to undergo any surgery is not to be taken lightly. Information and knowledge is essential for any patient, so that their choices are well informed. Prior to any surgery, Dr Scamp has a minimum two consultations with each patient. This is his preferred method so that he may discuss at length the best option for you.
We closely monitor our patients throughout their entire Surgical journey from their initial consultation through to post operative care. Dr Scamp will give you all the information you need to prepare for surgery and recovery. You will be asked to cease smoking for six weeks prior to surgery. Certain other medications and supplements are to be avoided two weeks prior to surgery, such as aspirin, red wine and vitamin E. Following your procedure, there may be restrictions to your activities for several days to several weeks. Plan your business and social activities to allow sufficient time for recovery.
For rural patients or those unable to make it into clinic inital phone consultations available for all procedures.
Consultations with Dr Scamp are $120 and includes two visits with him, a $75 deposit is required at booking. At your consultation, Dr Scamp will make his recommendations and discuss the procedure, risks & complications and also important information that will help you to prepare for both before and after your surgery. Dr Scamp may utilise the Vectra 3d image machine which takes a photo of you then projects an image of what you could possibly look like with the end result, even before your surgery for Rhinoplasty and Breast Procedures.* These images will be emailed to you after your first consultation.
After you meet with Dr Scamp the Surgical Coordinator who, based on the outcome of your consultation with Dr Scamp will be able to prepare a written financial quotation for you to take away. Your quotation will be inclusive of the surgeon’s fees, the anaesthetist’s fees and also the hospital fees, taking into account any applicable rebates from Medicare or your private health fund that may apply.
Naturally after you leave you will think of more questions, and after you have time to read over and consider all of the information we will book you in for your second consultation whereby you will again meet with both Dr Scamp and the Surgical Coordinator. This allows an additional opportunity for you to touch base so that when you leave you will feel both comfortable and informed.
