Metropolitan Plastic Surgery

About Our Centers

The choice of cosmetic surgeon in Virginia is a difficult one to make. There are many doctors who perform plastic surgery procedures, but not all of them have the training and aesthetic sense that is required to produce a natural or superior result. When there is a multitude of choices, decision making becomes more difficult. On this website you will find valuable information to help you make this decision.

 

Metropolitan Plastic Surgery was established in 1992. With the experience gained in these years of practice, we have created a unique program of personal and specialized care with the utmost concern for your safety and satisfaction. By arranging individual treatment plans and giving each patient the special attention he or she deserves, we have been recognized for our comprehensive approach to diagnosis, treatment, and the complete rehabilitation of our patients to a more youthful and healthier lifestyle.

Your Consultation

During your initial consultation with your Virginia cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Saeed Marefat will discuss with you in detail your concerns about your appearance, your alternatives in correcting these problem areas, and the risks involved. You may also meet one of our cosmetic surgery consultants, who can discuss issues relevant to your surgery in detail and answer other questions you may have. Our cosmetic consultants are thoroughly trained experts who can provide you with in-depth information on the desired cosmetic procedure.

During this initial visit, with your consultant as your guide, you can view before and after color photographs of your surgeon’s actual patients.

You will also have the opportunity to review informative material related to your surgery and view educational videotapes on the particular procedure you wish to have.

After you have become thoroughly familiar with the procedure, you may discuss any additional questions with Dr. Marefat or your cosmetic surgery consultant so that you are completely satisfied. Do not hesitate to call us if you think of a question after you have left our office. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Members of our staff will help you through each step of the way with understanding and reassurance.

After you have met with Dr. Marefat and have had all your questions answered to your satisfaction, your cosmetic consultant will help you schedule your surgery date, arrange for any laboratory tests, handle your paper work, and set up other necessary appointments.

On Your Day of Surgery

On your day of plastic surgery, you will be greeted by your admitting nurse, who will escort you to the pre-operative area. Dr. Marefat will meet with you, review the details of the procedure, and answer any additional questions you may have.

Your surgery will be performed in a modern, hospital-type operating room. The operating rooms have been designed and equipped with your safety and comfort in mind. State-of-the-art instruments, cardiac monitoring systems, oxygen saturation monitors, and blood pressure monitors are continuously tested for proper function and periodically upgraded.

After surgery, you will be moved to a special recovery area where you will be supervised by your surgeon. He will ensure that you have a complete understanding of any special needs you may have after surgery. During this immediate postoperative period, you will receive the most special and individual attention possible.

When you have completely recovered and are ready to leave, Dr. Marefat will meet with you to discuss the surgical results and give you postoperative instructions. While you are in surgery, your family or friends may wait in the comfortable waiting area of the facilities. They may rejoin you after the procedure is complete and you have fully recovered. In certain cases, Dr. Marefat may recommend and arrange for you to spend your first evening at an after-care facility or hospital. Usually this is arranged in advance. Dr. Marefat performs his operations with a meticulous touch, thereby reducing the postoperative discomfort you may experience. We will make every effort to make your postoperative recovery pain-free and provide you with medication to eliminate any minor discomfort you may have. When you go home, Dr. Marefat or one of his staff will call you that night to make sure you are doing well and to answer any questions. Dr. Marefat sees almost all his patients within two or three days of the operation.

A Team Approach

We are often impressed by the team work that we see in sports or the tremendous amount of skill and expertise that come together in the production of a piece of machinery. Dr. Marefat views the success of an operation in a similar way. If you were the president or the CEO of a large corporation, you would want to have a group of highly trained and reliable advisors to help you make tough economic and financial decisions. Now consider your body as this corporation, with the achievement of health and youthfulness as its ultimate goal. You would want to have the best possible advice, not only about surgical procedures that can benefit you, but also on health-related issues such as diet and exercise that will help you maintain your youthful appearance long after surgery.

At Metropolitan Plastic Surgery you are the central figure of a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, and health care professionals whose primary concern is your well being. In order to ensure that your needs are fully met, this team of professionals will provide ongoing and extended services for you, our patient. By arranging individual treatment plans and giving each patient the special attention he or she deserves, we have achieved recognition for our comprehensive approach to diagnosis, treatment, and complete rehabilitation to a more youthful and healthier lifestyle.

Financing Your Procedure

Cosmetic surgery should be viewed as a long-term investment in yourself and your future. If you look at it in this light, you will realize that it is probably one of the wisest, financially sound investments you will ever make.

Our professional surgical team efficiently combines a safe, caring, hospital-like environment at a reasonable cost. However, you must remember that precautions essential to your safety are expensive. A high degree of specialized knowledge and skill goes into achieving superior results. It is only with completely thorough attention to detail that such results can be achieved. By necessity, this kind of time-consuming surgery cannot be cheap.

Insurance

There are a number of procedures in plastic surgery that may be partially or completely covered by your insurance provider. These are procedures that are necessary to improve function, but at the same time may enhance the appearance or cosmetic shape of that structure. Such cosmetic/functional procedures may occasionally be covered by your health insurance, depending on the kind of policy you have and the severity of the problem.

Specially trained members of our staff will assist you with verification of coverage and the completion of the insurance forms. We will help you obtain the maximum benefit from your insurance when your claim is submitted.

Financing/Credit

There are a number of financial assistance programs and payment plans that are available to you in order to cover the cost of surgery. Please make sure you discuss these options with our administrative staff. We will make every attempt to help you with a plan that is appropriate for your case. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express for your convenience.
