About Surgery

Once you’ve chosen to undergo elective surgery, we will work to offer you the earliest possible date at your choice between our Accredited Office Surgical Suite or Marlborough Hospital. Your candidacy for an in-office procedure is discussed at your initial consultation. Dr. Poulos’s surgical schedule books in advance, so please plan accordingly!

Once you and Dr. Poulos arrive at a definitive surgical plan, you will be presented with a proposal outlining the surgeon’s, anesthesia, and facility fees.

A 10% deposit (booking and administrative fee) is required to book any cosmetic surgery. The remaining balance is paid at your preoperative appointment or two weeks’ prior to surgery, which ever comes first. Dr. Poulos accepts cash, check, bank check, all credit cards, or financing through Care Credit. If scheduling a hospital surgery we will provide you with information in order to pay your hospital and anesthesia fees, and what forms of payment are accepted for those fees.

All patients require a Pre-Operative appointment with out clinical team, which is a thorough appointment: you’ll read and sign numerous consents, you’ll finalize your surgery decision, and you’ll learn what to expect during and after surgery. Other testing and physical examinations may be necessary to gain surgical clearance for your particular case.

Please prepare yourself and your home for your post-operative recovery. Pick up your medications and any necessities ahead of time. Your job, post-operatively, is to relax and recover. You will need a reliable and responsible friend or relative to bring you to and from surgery, stay with you for at least the first 24 hours following surgery, and bring you to and from your first Post-Operative appointment with Dr. Poulos (typically 24 to 72 hours after surgery).
