Let’s Get Started!

How to Prepare For Your Consultation!

Before your telephone consultation with Dr. Jimerson:

  • Be sure to email your photos to photos@advancedplasticsurgerysolutions a minimum of 48 hours prior to your phone consultation or your appointment will be automatically cancelled.
  • Photos for buttock augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction should be taken in undergarments (a thong is preferable) or nude. One photo from the front, the back and each side.  You don’t have to include your face in the photos. Please take them from neck to knees.
  • Photos for breast procedures should be nude from the front and each side. Raising your arms changes the position of your breasts so it is helpful to have someone else photograph you with your arms at your side. If this is not possible, try to keep your elbows at your side while taking the pictures. You do not need to include your face.
  • If you are interested in a tummy tuck make sure underwear are under the overlapping skin of the abdomen.
  • You may send wish pictures depicting what you like. This is just to give Dr. Jimerson a general idea of your goals, he cannot recreate someone else’s body.
  • The price quoted at the time of your consultation is good for 30 days. There is a $500 deposit due at the time of surgery scheduling.

Before Your In-Office Cosmetic Consultation

Your first cosmetic consultation is complimentary.  For your office consultation you should expect to spend approximately 1 hour we ask that you do your patient paperwork ahead of time by following the link on our website through the tab How To Prepare under Patient Forms the link will also be included in the appointment confirmation email. If you cannot do the forms online we ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled consultation to fill out the paperwork. During your consultation you will meet with a patient consultant as well as with Dr. Jimerson. We ask that you prepare all of your questions ahead of time so that you will take full advantage of your consultation time. Please prepare all financial questions for your patient consultant. Also be prepared to take photographs during your consultation. These are for your medical record they will not be used for any other means unless you have given us written consent to do so. You will be given a written quote after your consultation is complete and you will be given the opportunity to schedule your surgery if you choose. If you would like to schedule your surgery, there is a $500 deposit to get on the schedule and lock in your price. Your total balance is due 2 weeks prior to surgery, so if you plan to have your surgery 2 weeks or sooner, your entire balance will be due at the time of scheduling.
