F.A.Q.s

Is Dr. Kiesnowski Board Certified?

Yes, Doctor is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery which is the most widely recognized and respected organization for plastic surgeons in the United States and perhaps the world. The board certification process is a minimum two year process after graduation from an approved Plastic Surgery Residency or Fellowship program in which a physician must pass a comprehensive written examination followed one year later by an oral examination before a panel of established plastic surgeons. Board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is a prerequisite for membership in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

How much time will I need to take off after my surgery?

While each patient is unique in their needs, general recommendations are as follows:

 

  • Breast Augmentation - 2 weeks
  • Breast Lift - 2 weeks
  • Breast Reduction - 2 weeks
  • Breast Reconstruction 2-6 weeks
  • Tummy tuck/Abdominoplasty 3-4 weeks
  • Fat grafting - 1 week
  • Liposuction 1 week
  • Eyelid Surgery 1-2 weeks
  • Brachioplasty - 2 weeks

What happens if I have a complication after my cosmetic surgery that requires another surgery or hospitalization?

While complications are very rare, in the event that an unforeseen complication should occur, you can be confident that your out of pocket hospital and physician expenses will be offset by insurance coverage for that event. We include Aesthetissure insurance with every cosmetic surgery that we perform. You can visit their website: www.cosmetassure.com for more information on covered procedures and benefits.

Where does the doctor operate and will he do my surgery at the hospital that participates with my health plan?

Can I request a quote over the telephone?

We will provide an approximate estimate for a procedure over the telephone, however, a binding quote can only be obtained by scheduling an evaluation with Dr. Kiesnowski. We do not provide estimates via e-mail. Written quotes do have expiration dates.

Will you accept my insurance?
