Choosing the Right Surgeon

A successful cosmetic surgery will enhance your confidence for years to come, and it is important to find the surgeon you can trust and feel comfortable with. Here are some of the things you can consider:

  • Make sure your cosmetic surgeon is board certified. A board certification is a mark of distinction and means that a medical doctor or a surgeon has met the standards and competency requirements set by the Board in a chosen specialty.
  • Ask whether the surgeon specializes in a particular area or procedure. It is seldom that your plastic surgeon can specialize in all areas of the face, breast, and body, as each area requires different skills. For example, operating on facial bones and cartilage would be quite different from handling the soft tissues in a breast surgery. For this reason, it would be wise to choose a surgeon who has substantial training and experience in the particular procedure you are considering.
  • Choose a surgeon whose aesthetic philosophies are aligned with yours. Cosmetic surgery is highly subjective as aesthetic sense varies from person to person. Therefore, you want to have your surgery performed by a qualified surgeon whose results appeal to you. You want a surgeon who can communicate with you easily and understands what type of results you are looking for.

Financing

We accept checks and major credit cards. Our office works with a 3rd party financing program to help all our patients, and we would be happy to assist you with the application process, which is simple and usually determined the same day. We require a down payment to reserve the date and time for your surgery, and the rest of payment is due in full prior to surgery. For additional questions about the price estimates and financing options, please call 425.200.5890 or email at [email protected].

Dr. Ort is not currently contracted with any medical insurances, as most of the procedures performed in our facial aesthetic surgery practice are cosmetic in nature and are not covered by insurance. Corrective jaw surgery, also known as Orthognathic surgery, may be partially covered by medical insurance, and Dr. Ort will work with you in submitting a pre-authorization letter to help explain medical necessity for this treatment.

Out of Town Patients ━ FAQs:

There may be various reasons why patients would want to travel out of town for their cosmetic surgery. Sometimes there isn’t a surgeon in town that they believe will give the results they desire. Other times, patients simply wish to get away from demands of home and be in an environment that can help them relax and recover more privately. Dr. Ort has treated many patients from out of state and out of the country -- Alaska, California, Florida, Colorado, Ohio, South Korea, China, Canada, and Mexico to name a few.
