Patients cite five elements that set Dr. Gerlach apart from the rest: natural results, safety, speedy recoveries, and a caring surgical team. Dr. Todd M. Gerlach is a board certified plastic surgeon. He specializes in cosmetic surgery to the face, neck, breast and body contouring.
He approaches every procedure, small or large, with the same attention to detail, personally administering every injection (ie Botox, Restylane etc.) as well as patient follow-up appointments. His “Before and After” books speak for themselves, featuring the breasts, tummy-tucks, liposuction, facial and eyelid surgeries he performs in his own AAAASF Certified surgical suite.
Dr. Gerlach has earned his reputation not only for surgical skills, but also for his compassionate bedside manner, attentive care and patient education. He stresses confidentiality. Dr. Gerlach strives to provide a comfortable, relaxing setting and attentive service.
We understand that the decision to pursue cosmetic surgery is an important one. From your first call to our office we will make every effort to deliver the highest quality care. During your private consultation we will review your concerns and discuss options for improvement. Once you've made decision to pursue surgery, we will arrange a convenient date for you to have your procedure. Consultations are complimentary.
Comprehensive Pre-operative visit
Because we believe so strongly in good communication between doctor and patient we like to set up a second consultation for a comprehensive pre-operative visit in which your procedure is reviewed in detail and all inclusive screening lab tests are performed. Thorough pre-operative and post-operative instructions will be explained and prescriptions given. The recovery process will be explained in-depth. We will also answer any questions that you may have regarding your procedure.
The Day of Surgery
On the day of surgery, you will be welcomed to the surgical facility and made to feel warm and comfortable. You will meet other members of our cosmetic surgical team who will discuss your care with you. Your surgeon will also see you again to review your case.
The operating room is our sanctuary where total focus is on you and creating the most beautiful result in an artistic natural way. Once your surgery is completed, you will awaken in the recovery room and will be cared for by our surgical nurses until ready you are ready to go home.
