What to Expect
When you come for your initial consult with Dr. Olding at the DC Cosmetic Surgery Center, there will be a consult fee of $75.00 collected at time of check-in. This will be deducted from the cost of any surgical procedure you have done with Dr. Olding.
Our new patient registration forms are available online. Click here to download the new patient forms, which include demographic information, a basic medical history questionnaire, and our financial responsibility agreement. We highly suggest filling out the forms beforehand and bringing them with you to your consult with Dr. Olding.
We ask that you please arrive 15 minutes early to your consult with Dr. Olding, if possible.
At your consult, Dr. Olding will evaluate you, explain the procedure(s) you are interested in and answer all of your questions. Before you leave, our patient liaison will provide you with a letter explaining all the costs of the procedure(s) you discussed. The pricing given in this letter is valid for one year after the date you receive it.
Some additional information for our new patients:
- Patients interested in cosmetic facial surgery relating to aging (e.g., facelift, neck lift, etc.), please bring with you any photos of yourself 5, 10, 15 or 20 years past, so Dr. Olding may see the changes in your face.
- Breast augmentation patients, please bring a bra (in your desired cup size) and a fitted T-shirt (preferably white) to try on implants at your consult. The bra you bring should have little to no padding in order to get a realistic idea of what the implants will look like. In addition, please bring photos of what you find to be attractive and unattractive breast augmentations. This will help Dr. Olding to better understand your expectations. A website you may find helpful is Breast Implants by MENTOR®, which has before and after photos of real breast augmentation patients, and an online visualizer for prospective patients.
- Facial filler patients, please download and review our list of aspirin-like medications and refrain from taking any of these medications and supplements for at least 2 weeks prior to your consultation with Dr. Olding, should you desire to have your filler injections that same day. Also, please do not wear makeup; otherwise, you can bring your regular facial cleanser with you to remove makeup you may be wearing to the appointment.
We look forward to seeing you at your first consult with Dr. Olding at the DC Cosmetic Surgery Center!
