About Smartlipo Consultations
We believe it is critical for anyone considering a surgical procedure to personally meet with the surgeon who will be performing the procedure. For this reason, you will have a personal, complimentary consultation with Dr. Kulkin to discuss your goals and to learn more about Smartlipo.
He will assess the areas you are interested in improving with Smartlipo, and make recommendations for treatment. He will also take a comprehensive medical history so that we are aware of any health issues you may have. You can be assured, if Smartlipo is not right for you he will tell you!
We have seen many people who have visited other facilities and were told they are good candidates for laser assisted liposuction, but upon evaluation, Dr. Kulkin simply felt it was not the right procedure for them at this time.
If you decide that Smartlipo is right for you, a future pre-op visit will be scheduled to sign consent forms, draw labs and review particulars for your big day! Pre-op photographs for before and after pictures will not be taken until the day of your scheduled procedure.
Smartlipo Consultation Options
- Monday – Friday – Dr. Kulkin offers consultations Monday-Friday as well as 2 Saturdays each month. Saturday consultations have a slightly different scheduling policy than those scheduled Monday-Friday that policy is reviewed in the next paragraph. While our consultations are complimentary, you will be asked to provide a credit card number to reserve your appointment time (Monday-Friday). This policy is in place to protect Dr. Kulkin’s schedule from “no-show” and last minute cancellations. If you should need to cancel or reschedule your week-day consultation appointment, we do request a 24-hour notice. No show appointments will be charged a fee of $75.
- Saturdays – Dr. Kulkin also makes himself available for consultations on 2 Saturdays each month. Very few doctors offer Saturday appointments and these appointments are in high demand. If you would like to schedule a Saturday appointment with Dr. Kulkin there is $75 charge to make that appointment, however your $75 will be refunded upon your arrival to your scheduled appointment. You can also choose to apply this $75 toward your procedure or service. If you need to cancel or reschedule your Saturday appointment we require a 48-hour notice, this can be done via phone or email. As long as you provide a 48-hour notice your $75 will be refunded at the time the cancellation is made. Failure to provide a 48 hour notice will result in the forfeiture of your $75 payment.
