During your consultation, you and New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Sorokin discuss your motivations for your surgery, as well as your medical history and other relevant information. Along with Alisha, his director of surgical services, Dr. Sorokin performs a physical examination to evaluate different factors and to determine your candidacy for your chosen procedures. Our staff may also take photos and measurements to add to your file. A patient coordinator then explains the preoperative process, including required tests, costs, financing options, and scheduling.
Dr. Sorokin’s nursing staff is present on the day of your surgery and helps you both before and after the procedure. At your follow-up appointments, Dr. Sorokin will monitor your healing process. Recovery from plastic surgery is more than what is shown on Hollywood shows. Surgery requires recovery, which is far from glamorous.
