Frequently Asked Questions

plastic surgery faq Who provides anesthesia services at the center?

The Center utilizes only the experienced Board Certified M.D. anesthesiologists who have full and active privileges at Rancho Springs Medical Center, a regional hospital one block away. Besides the usual call the night prior to surgery, a meeting with a staff anesthesiologist can be arranged prior to the day of your procedure.

Why should I come to see Dr. Newman years after surgery?

It not only helps us improve our care but helps in the maintenance of your good result. You have worked hard to improve yourself and this is the first step! Our staff fosters a warm connection with patients from the start specifically to encourage them to see us again.

How often and for how long will I need to see Dr. Newman after surgery?

This of course varies and depends on the patient and where they live, and on the procedure. We encourage patients to continue to see us and especially to make an appointment whenever they have a concern. Patients are also encouraged to see us far into the future. We enjoy getting feedback about patients care at our Center and often, the best feedback comes from patients who return one, two and three years after their experience.

browlift Where do I go after surgery?

The Surgery Center team and physicians feel that warm and supportive care can be best rendered at home especially with the excellent pre-operative instruction of the nursing staff. The patient???s home is a well-known environment. Extended care facilities may even have staff that doesn???t have specific knowledge of the patient???s procedure. Therefore, every effort is made to tailor the patient???s procedure so that they can go home after their surgery. Patients can request a nurse to stay with them post-operatively. Patients who feel that home care may present special problems (inquisitive children) are encouraged to stay at a relative or friend???s home or hotel.

When will I be seen next?

Generally, patient are seen the next day with the exception of patients who have a tummy tuck who are seen on the third post-operative day. Our staff and physicians will provide active input during all of your post-operative visits.

Will I be contacted around the time of my surgery?

Our scheduling coordinator will contact you three days prior to surgery to see how you are doing and to communicate what time you should arrive at the Surgery Center. The anesthesiologist generally calls each patient the night prior to surgery to obtain some basic information and to put you at ease, and Dr. Newman will call you the evening of your procedure to make sure you are comfortable.

plastic surgery questions Do I see the staff and Dr. Newman again prior to surgery?

Once your procedure date is scheduled, we will set up a date for you to return for a pre-operative visit. The surgery plan will be reviewed again and any changes will be discussed. Pre-operative photographs will be taken and risks and benefits will be discussed thoroughly. Prescriptions for any labs, studies and medications will be given to you at this time. Please have these filled prior to your surgery so you will have them at home after your procedure.

What are the steps one takes to have cosmetic surgery?

Patients can schedule a consultation reasonably soon as the Doctor has one full time site and no distant offices to diminish his time for patients in Temecula and Murrieta. If you wish to fill out your patient registration at home to save time, please feel free to call us and we will fax the forms to you. Please be punctual for your consultation as the Doctor makes every effort to respect patient???s schedules and also wants to spend adequate, quality time with each patient.

Where do are patients come from?

Our patients reside mostly in the Inland Empire but we have a significant number of patients who live on the coast. Also, many of our patients have moved to distant regions over the years and they and their friends and relative come for secondary procedures. They begin this process by contacting our scheduling coordinating and are encouraged to submit photographs via e-mail. A preoperative telephone consultation can be arranged with the Doctor and with the nurse, and labs and studies, if needed can be ascertained. Patients can schedule their flight so that they can see the Doctor a day or two prior to their care. Patients will be required to stay in the area for varying times depending on the type of procedure.  Visit our Fly-in Patients page for more information.

Who are the patients we care for at our Surgery Center?

Most of our patients are referred by other patients who have had cosmetic surgery at our Center. If you don???t know anyone who has had surgery with us please inform our receptionist or our scheduling coordinator. Our staff will be happy to assist you to connect with other patients who have had the same procedures.
