When I consult with a new patient as a Louisville Plastic Surgeon, their problem is deemed either “cosmetic” or “insurance”.
These designations refer to with whom financial responsibility falls. If a case is considered cosmetic, the financial responsiblity falls with the patient. Insurance will not be billed. There is no fee for these visits. Cosmetic cases are typically Louisville Breast Augmentations, Louisville Tummy Tucks, Louisville Liposuction, Louisville Rhinoplasty, and Louisville Facelifts
If a case is considered reconstructive and the patient expects their insurance to cover the costs of the surgery, their insurance will be billed. In these cases there IS a charge for the consultation.
