Our Policy


What makes us different from most other practices is:

 

Personalized attention

 

Our practice focuses on providing personalized attention to all our patients. The initial consultation requires 60 to 120 minutes and you are welcome to bring along a spouse or a close friend. During this time, photographs will be taken and viewed on a computer with an "image processing program" to make precision modifications of the digital images of the patient’s body or face to give the patient a realistic idea of what to expect postoperatively. A main difference with other practices is that from beginning to end your consultation will be with Dr. Gomez-Mendoza. We know that in most of the practices, this is done by a member of the office staff, but remember our goal is to be sure, that all of the patient's concerns are addressed and that all questions are answered professionally.

 

 

A way of working where outstanding outcomes are common

 

Because you are unique we individualize our attention to each case. We know what to do, and we know exactly how to do it.

 

A policy of providing good value

 

We make every effort to keep your costs at a reasonable level. We will not try to sell you on added procedures you don't want or may not even need. We maintain our own efficient operating rooms that are optimized specifically for cosmetic surgery and yet far less expensive for you than a full-service hospital or common surgical center.

 

 Teamwork

 

The service we offer requires a certain type of provider: a doctor alone cannot supply your total care. We are proud of our staff of uniquely skilled individuals – people who are not only intelligent and observant, but courteous, helpful, and very aware that comfortable and effective treatment requires personal care.

 

The way we exceed your expectations

 

We will meet with you as many times as you consider necessary and we will encourage you to ask us as many questions as you have about your surgery so we can assist you in making your decision with our guidance and expert knowledge. Our goal is to exceed your expectations providing the latest, state of the art cosmetic surgery to help you achieve the youthful beauty and natural appearance that you are looking for. The best care with the personal touch and attention you deserve.

 

An avoidance of unproven facts and gimmicks

 

In an era that values bold innovation, "breakthrough" modifications in plastic surgery appear almost weekly. Many of these untested "advances" that seem too good to be true turn out to be exactly that; once quietly abandoned, there is scant mention of the patients who experienced their consequences.
