Q:How much do you charge for a breast augmentation?

Q: What is important in choosing a plastic surgeon?
A: You must feel comfortable with your plastic surgeon. You should verify that your plastic surgeon is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. You can be assured that every plastic surgeon listed for our practice has graduated from an accredited medical school and has trained in surgery for at least five years. Our plastic surgeon in Pittsburgh, Dr. Raymond Capone, is a member of both The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS). These prestigious organizations require demonstrated surgical experience as well as board certification. In addition, members agree to practice according to the high standards and ethical mandates of each plastic surgery society. At our Pittsburgh plastic surgery practice, Dr. Capone upholds these mandates by maintaining high safety standards and providing quality services.
Q: When do you offer consultations, and what can I expect at my visit?
A: Our consultations are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, morning and afternoon. Dr. Capone will discuss all your options, review before and after pictures, get a finalized fee quote, and review surgery dates. Patients have commented on the quality of our consultations. Dr. Capone spends at least an hour with you to provide you all the information you need to make the right decision about your surgery. Dr. Capone will thoroughly answer your questions and concerns about post-operative care recovery.
Q: Do you offer patient referrals/testimonials?
A: We can offer our patients a one-on-one patient contact. To discuss surgery patient referrals, please contact our office for an appointment. To view our extensive testimonials, you may click on our testimonial page.
Q: How long is the recovery after my surgery?
A: The length of your recovery depends on many factors, including which surgery you choose. Most surgery patients can expect to resume normal activities in 10 days to 2 weeks, including returning to work. Swelling may last beyond this time, but will subside shortly.
Q: What accommodations do you have for out-of-town patients?
A: We have a few conveniently located and comfortable overnight accommodations that can be arranged simply by contacting us. Let the staff at our plastic surgery center help arrange your stay in Pittsburgh.
Q: How do you ensure the safety of your surgical facility?
A: The Shadyside Surgi-Center goes well beyond office operating rooms. The Shadyside Surgi-Center is like a hospital operating room. As such, it is equipped with a precision air filtration and ventilation system that provides twenty-five filtered air exchanges per hour. There is a natural gas-driven backup electrical generator that ensures uninterrupted power through any power outage. All equipment is maintained and routinely inspected by specialists in biomedical engineering. Our plastic surgery facility is licensed by the state of Pennsylvania and meets all OSHA regulations.
