A consultation with Dr. Placik is the first step toward an improved you. You should candidly discuss your concerns and expectations. Dr. Placik will talk with you about possible improvement, how it can be accomplished and what you should realistically expect as an outcome.

During the initial visit, it is important for Dr. Placik to learn the details of your situation and for you to learn what surgical techniques Dr. Placik recommends. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to discuss topics such as the location where your surgery will be performed, anethesia and recovery time. During the visit, our staff will also be available to talk with you about any questions you might have. They will then help you schedule your procedure if you desire, and discuss the financial considerations as well.
Depending upon the nature of your surgery, you may have your procedure in an outpatient surgical facility, or you may be admitted to the hospital. Many procedures can be done in an outpatient setting and are therefore less costly than if performed in a hospital operating room. The Northwest Surgicare outpatient facility offers state-of-the-art surgical technology and provides our patients with safe and comfortable surroundings for cosmetic surgery and related procedures.
