Office policies and procedures
Thank you for choosing Facial Plastics, a plastic surgery practice serving Houston. Below are a few policies with respect to booking and scheduling a procedure with us.
- In order to book the date of your procedure, 50% of your cosmetic surgery fee is required to be paid as a deposit. If you decide to cancel your procedure and you provide us 5 business days advance notice, your entire deposit will be refunded back to you. If you cancel your procedure and less than 5 business days notice is provided, your deposit minus $500 will be refunded back to you unless extenuating circumstances exist.
If you decide to move your surgery to a different date and 5 business days advance notice is given, the entire deposit will be applied towards the new date. If less than 5 business days notice is given, a $100 penalty will be assessed.
The balance 50% of the cosmetic surgery fee is due 1 week (5 business days) prior to surgery.
Occasionally, procedures will consist of a cosmetic and a functional component. In such cases, the cosmetic estimate is indicative of the cosmetic portion of the surgery only. You may be responsible for certain portions (e.g. deductible, copay, etc.) for the insurance component of the surgery. If you have a deductible or copay, this may be collected prior to surgery. Following filing your insurance, you may have a balance or a refund for the insurance component. If a balance is due, a bill will be mailed to you. If a refund is due to you, a check will be mailed to you within 30 days.
Your cosmetic quotation includes all post-operative care visits. If a touch-up procedure is required, a 50% discount will be given to you for any touch-up procedures.
Your cosmetic surgery quotation is good for 90 days from the date of the quotation; surgery must be booked within 90 days of the quotation, but the date of surgery need not be within 90 days of the quotation.
If your procedure requires the services of an anesthesiologist, you will receive two quotations. The first quotation is for the surgical portion of the procedure. The second quotation is for the anesthesia services and the facility fee. If your procedure will be done under local anesthesia, the anesthesia fee is provided within the surgical estimate.
Your cosmetic quotation is inclusive of a peri-operative surgery packet which includes preoperative vitamins, postoperative vitamins, and the most common postoperative wound care supplies.
For face lifts and skin resurfacing procedures, your quotation also includes a 30-day supply of Skin Rx™, Athré Facial Plastics’ exclusive line of skin care products.
The relationship between surgeon and patient is very important. Every attempt to maximize your postoperative results has been undertaken. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us or call us at 281-557-3223. Thank you again for choosing Athré Facial Plastics.
