Your Personal Surgical Journey
We at Bellevue Plastic Surgeons pride ourselves in delivering the best possible cosmetic surgery to you, our patient, focusing on your safety.
Dr. Marosan's practice is 100% cosmetic plastic surgery and he is fully focused on this highly specialized aspect of plastic surgery. Most of our patients come from word of mouth recommendations from previous satisfied patients and our international patients find us through the internet. No matter how you find us, we will make your experience at Bellevue Plastic Surgeons a rewarding and memorable one with your safety in mind. We embrace the culture of safety at Bellevue Plastic Surgeons which is strongly endorsed by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This is reflected by Dr. Marosan being board certified in plastic surgery, by regularly attending Continuing Medical Education (CME) symposia of which 150 hours are required in a three year cycle. We have the largest in office operating room outside a hospital and is AAAASF accredited. We also works with the same anesthesia group since 1996.
Your first contact with us most likely is by e-mail or telephone.
You will meet our receptionist first; she takes the calls (not a machine or recorder which forces you to listen to advertisement about the practice), will answer your questions, mail or e-mail out a packet about us and a generalized description of the procedure you are interested in, and sets up your consultation with Dr. Marosan. Although most of our patients come from the Puget Sound area, Dr. Marosan's reputation and our staffs' expertise are sought out by many from a distance. Our practice prides itself in attracting and providing first class surgical care to patients not only from other parts of the US, but also from Canada, Europe, Mexico, South America and even New Zealand.
For your consultation you can expect to spend at least one hour at our clinic.
After you meet our receptionist in person and have a chance to have a coffee/tea, you'll fill out our short intake form, if you did not have a chance to fill it out online. She will take you into our consultation room where Lauri (our registered nurse) will join you to take an initial medical history and discuss your desires and expectations about cosmetic surgery. After all your questions have been answered, the nurse takes you into the examination room, where Dr. Marosan will join you as well. No two consultations are alike as no two people are alike. You will get our undivided attention and respect and will always be treated with dignity. We do recognize and are sensitive that some patients feel uneasy initially and even embarrassed during the physical examination, but we'll treat you with the utmost professionalism and genuine care. Dr. Marosan will discuss your surgical options, if you are a good surgical candidate, and the realistic expectations, recovery and return to normal activity. You are encouraged to ask questions about the surgery or Dr. Marosan. He loves it when patients bring a list of questions, because this shows that they "did their homework" and gave serious thought to a life changing procedure.
When you schedule your surgery, the front office personnel will assist you.
The front office personnel will schedule the surgery and also the preoperative visit about two weeks prior to the procedure. You will be given an exact, detailed and all inclusive quote about your procedure, all related paper work and financial options. The anesthetist will call you the day prior to surgery and will go over your medical history, the anesthesia plan for your surgery and any concerns you have about anesthesia.
Dr. Marosan has a 100% cosmetic surgery practice and has no contract with any insurance company. Therefore, payment for your surgery and anesthesia services is due two weeks prior to surgery at your preoperative visit. The consultation fee and operating room reservation fee is deducted from your final bill. You are also given a list of medications or herbal supplements to stop prior to your surgery. These are usually compounds that interfere with blood clotting, can raise or lower your blood pressure or interfere with healing.
The day of surgery you and your ride need to arrive at the requested time.
Wear only old and loose clothing that you don't mind if they get stained, no jewelry or piercings. Do not eat anything after midnight the night before unless otherwise instructed by the anesthetist. Dr. Marosan will take preoperative photos and place the surgical markings on you which will guide him in surgery. Once the anesthetist start the intravenous line and gives you a relaxant, you will not remember much until you are ready to go home. Your ride will get instructions from the nurse, the anesthetist and Dr. Marosan. Your ride will have the phone numbers to contact Dr. Marosan with any questions you might have. Dr. Marosan will call you the night of surgery to "check on you" and make sure that you are comfortable.
The day after your surgery you must be brought back to the office for your first postoperative check. Dr. Marosan wants to make sure that everything is the way it should be and you are doing well. At this appointment we'll change your dressings and answer your questions.
