Plastic, Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgeon
|Mon – Fri||8:00 AM – 5:00 PM|
Please contact us during business hours for appointments, queries and questions
Except for minor surgery you will have two consultations. The first to establish what the diagnosis is and what the probable treatment plan will be. You will be given information brochures to read. At the second visit any questions arising from the written material will be discussed, the surgical plan reviewed, modified if needed and then confirmed. A consent form is done once you have decided to proceed with the surgery and a firm booking for surgery is made.
As your surgeon will discuss with you, if your treatment requires surgery they usually work with Anaesthesia Auckland Ltd. In particular with the following anaesthetists:

There are standard scale fees for consultations of varying length and complexity. A phone call to our office is all that is needed to discuss these.
After the first consultation the surgeon will have a good idea of what operation will be needed for your particular problem, how long it will take to do and thus an estimate of the likely cost can then be prepared.
There are basically three principal components to overall cost:
- Hospital charges: for operating theatre and consumables used during the procedure, recovery room and overnight ward and 'hotel' costs.
- Anaesthetist's services: pre-op assessment, discussion about your anaesthetic, consent process, delivery of your anaesthetic, post-op medications, fluids, prescriptions etc.
- Surgeon's fees: (a) Initial consultation. (b) Fee for surgery based on time taken and degree of difficulty, skill and expertise needed. This fee also includes post-op care by our practice nurse, dressing changes and follow-up consultations with the surgeon for 'quality control' for one year after surgery.
Health insurance policies vary widely in what surgery they cover. Check with your company before surgery for prior approval and an estimate of how much they will pay towards the cost of your surgery. Any shortfall is the patient's responsibility.
