Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Consultation times are provided for patients on Mondays in our Brea Office and on Fridays in our Beverly Hills office.  It helps to get the most out of your facetime with the doctor by taking notes during your consultation. You do not have to write everything down, only the key information so you can review it later. Take time to understand what Dr. Corbin is explaining. Sometimes patients hear only what they want to hear and they do not actually understand what the surgeon is saying. If you are feeling overwhelmed, slow the conversation down a bit. If you do not understand ask for an explanation. Educate the surgeon on you. Share with Dr. Corbin your expectations and surgical goals. Educating Dr. Corbin on what you want is as important as Dr. Corbin educating you on the risks of surgery and if your surgical expectations are realistic. Always be upfront and candid. Do not withhold any information, however insignificant it may seem, as it may affect your treatment or surgery. Always share any medication(s) or drugs you are taking and tell us if you are allergic to anything when the Doctor or Nurse are obtaining your history and physical. Understand the costs involved for your plastic surgery procedure. For most patients the financial part of surgery is of concern. Bargain hunting has its place, but not when it comes to surgery.  When choosing a surgeon, do not base your decision on who is the least expensive.  Wise investments are not always "bargains" and a serious complication is not ever a bargain at any price.  Call the office if you think of questions or concerns after your consultation. The office staff is always happy to educate patients further on their options and Dr. Corbin's recommendations for surgery. Build a relationship with your surgeon and the office staff. Dr. Corbin takes pride in preparing his surgery patients about their surgery as well as educating them on realistic surgery results and post op care and recovery. Being a good patient is a benefit to you and Dr. Corbin. Our office is always just a phone call away should you have any questions or concerns before or after your consultation appointment. Communication is key in our doctor patient relationship with you. Enjoy your consultation. It is our pleasure to get to know you.
