Before Surgery

What to expect during a consultation process?

During your first interaction, our highly skilled patient care coordinator guides you through the process and shares with you before-and-after photos. The discussion includes costs, fees and the financial policies of our practice. Depending on your specific needs and situation, numerous financing options are available.

When will I be treated?

Some treatments can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Important Items:

  • A good facial photograph of you when you were 20 or 30 years old.
  • Your surgical referral slip if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • Our Staff: We have selected our staff with particular concern for efficiency and a warm, dedicated attitude. Please feel free to approach anyone on the staff if you have questions or concerns.
  • IMPORTANT: If you’re under 18, you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
  • EMERGENCY: A vital part of our service is being available for your emergency needs. Please explain your problem to our receptionist, who will arrange an immediate appointment for you. After hours you can reach Dr. Myint by calling the Las Vegas office. The operator on duty will relay your message to Dr. Myint, who will return your call.

Preparing for surgery

If your procedure requires Intravenous Anesthesia Sedation, follow these instructions.
