If you are seeking an excellent cosmetic surgery experience, distance should be no obstacle to getting the care you deserve. The training, education and experience of our surgeon,
Dr. Edwin Ishoo, attracts patients to our practice from across New England and all over the country. In three easy, convenient steps we can often eliminate the need to make more than one trip here for your procedure(s). To ensure the best cosmetic surgery experience for out-of-state patients, we have designed a consultation process that allows many of the preliminaries to be handled via mail, email, and phone. This is not the same as a face-to-face consultation with Dr. Ishoo, but it is a good start.
To complete the consultation follow the steps below:
- Fill out our online New Patient Questionnaire form.
Download and review the Patient's Bill of Rights and Responsibilities,
Privacy Policies and Procedures,
Practice Disclosure, and complete the
Acknowledgement of Receipt of Forms.
- Take photos (without flash) of the areas you want to address.
- Return completed forms and photos via mail or email.
- Schedule a virtual consultation by Skype with Dr. Ishoo. Allow about 45 minutes for the consultation.
Taking Photographs for Your Consultation
Please take photos of your areas of concern from several angles. Front, back, each side and a 45 degree angle to each side from the front. Use poses either nude or with underwear or a bathing suit. If you take digital pictures, you can email them to us. Otherwise, make sure you get high-quality prints for inclusion with your forms. If you don't have anyone to take pictures for you, you can take pictures of yourself in the mirror, or utilize the timer setting on your camera, but make sure your areas of concern show clearly in the photos.
Virtual Consultation by Skype
In the event that you do not have a camera on your computer we can arrange a phone/email consultation with you.
During the virtual consultation, Dr. Ishoo will start by reviewing your medical history and he will listen to your desired results and answer any questions you might have. At this point, he can go over your cosmetic surgery options and recommend which procedure(s) he thinks would be best for you, based on your concerns and desired results.
After your virtual consultation, you may decide to schedule surgery based on the consultation, or you may decide to schedule an in-office consultation first. We can do much of the pre-operative work ahead of time, from your home state. The length of your stay in Massachusetts depends on your procedure and your medical history.
Whether you schedule your surgery on the phone or following an in-office consultation, we will see you for a pre-operative appointment in order to sign consent forms, take pre-operative photos, and have any of your remaining questions addressed one to two days prior to the procedure.
