Safety (We Worry So You Don’t Have To!)
For all aesthetic procedures, Dr. Laverson’s mature surgical judgment, his high ethical standards, his many years of experience, the quality of his support team, and protective systems in place help secure your safety and your satisfaction.
Plastic surgery and anesthesia are safe. The vast majority of cases proceed uneventfully and problem free. Although your final outcome may exceed expectations, this cannot be guaranteed in advance. Surgery is an inexact science. Many factors are unpredictable. Revision of an unsatisfactory result is sometimes indicated. Revision may not produce a result you’re pleased with, may delay your recovery, and will add unanticipated expense. Serious complications are rare, but possible. Age, general health, lifestyle, ability to follow care instructions, and other factors determine risk. Complete disclosure of your medical history to Dr. Laverson at the initial consultation is important. This helps Dr. Laverson and the anesthesiologist assess your risk and take steps to minimize the chance of a problem or complication. This may include referral to your primary care physician for pre-surgical clearance, adjustment of your regular medication schedule, laboratory studies, and/or other measures. The most likely possible complications will be presented to you in advance of your procedure. You will be asked to read, understand, and sign the applicable informed consent document(s), which are posted HERE. Incorporate this information into your most important decision: Whether or not the expected benefit (advantages) of the procedure you are considering is worth the risks of the procedure (disadvantages). Remember, your face and body are the most precious items you own.
