Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery & MediSpa offers the latest advances in digital imaging. Dr. Karen utilizes imaging and morphing software, called Mirror Imaging. Preoperative pictures are taken with a highly advanced digital camera. These images are used for comparison with postoperative results.
Mirror imaging software lets Dr. Karen simulate what you might look like post-operatively. This helps clarify both his and your surgical expectations. By morphing and altering your pre-operative photo, Dr. Karen will show you what his pre-surgical planning can achieve.
Patients should understand that this technological breakthrough serves only as a simulation. Morphing results do not guarantee a determined surgical result. Rather they are used as a basis for patient and surgical expectations.
Procedures that may be illustrated include rhinoplasty, chin/malar implant, facelifts, forehead lifts, eyelid surgery, lip enhancement, as well as several other procedures. Best of all, there is no extra charge associated with digital imaging.
After your consultation you will receive our estimate for surgical, anesthesia and facility fees. It is office policy not to quote surgical fees prior to your visit. Without a consultation, our staff will only be able give you a rough estimate. Each surgical procedure is uniquely tailored to each individual, and there is no standard price for any given procedure.
