Distant Consultations at Kevin Mayfield Plastic Surgery

We understand that it is inconvenient, time-consuming, and expensive for patients to drive or fly to Cincinnati for a cosmetic surgery consultation and then return a few weeks later for surgery. Dr. Mayfield has implemented a six-step program designed to facilitate your surgical experience with us:

  1. Contact us
    Your first step is to call our registered nurse at 513.856.8100 and request Registration and Medical History forms. She will ask you some questions about your goals and health history and discuss whether long-distance cosmetic plastic surgery is right for you.

  2. Return forms and send pictures
    Fill out the Registration and Medical History forms at your convenience and return them to our office via regular mail, e-mail, or fax. You will also need to provide current close-up photographs. These photographs should clearly show the area(s) of your concern and can be sent by regular mail or e-mailed to us. All of your information is kept strictly confidential and will promptly be destroyed if you do not proceed with surgery.

  3. Receive an assessment
    Dr. Mayfield will personally evaluate your information and provide an honest determination whether, in his opinion, you are a good candidate for long-distance surgery and the procedure(s) in which you have expressed an interest. Each and every case is assessed thoughtfully and individually. Unfortunately, not everyone will be an appropriate candidate for long-distance surgery or the procedure being requested. Our registered nurse will then contact you to discuss the outcome of Dr. Mayfield's review. She will also talk about surgical costs, local accommodations, preoperative instructions, your recovery course, and answer any other questions related to the procedure(s).

  4. Schedule your procedure and review instructions
    When you have decided to proceed, a $250 deposit is required to reserve your surgery date. This deposit is non-refundable three business days after receipt. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your surgery date.

    Shortly after your surgery is scheduled, you will receive a packet in the mail containing preoperative instructions and procedure consent forms. These documents must be read carefully and all instructions followed closely.

  5. Travel to Cincinnati
    You MUST arrive two days prior to your surgery date in good health. You will meet with Dr. Mayfield in our West Chester office for an in-depth preoperative consultation. An examination will be performed and Dr. Mayfield will fully discuss the procedure(s) that have been scheduled. At this time, you will sign the pertinent surgery consent forms and preoperative photographs will be taken.

  6. Recovery
    Dr. Mayfield advises that all patients driving long distance or flying to Cincinnati for surgery spend at least one night at the surgery facility postoperatively, ensuring that they receive any necessary medical attention.

    In the days that follow your surgery, Dr. Mayfield will see you according to our customary postoperative routine. Depending upon the procedure(s) that have been performed, you may return home approximately 7-14 days later. Your safety and comfort remain our number one priority after surgery.
