Consultations - Clinic
There are two main stages: consultations and procedures
Process for consultations:
Dr Laveaux consults at the Pôle Antibes Saint Jean, 2160 Avenue Jean - Michard Pellissier 06600 Antibes. Conversation with the patient is the essential starting point for a trusting relationship. Each party, the surgeon and the patient, must devote sufficient talking time before deciding on a treatment. For cosmetic surgery , two pre-operative consultations at least 15 days apart ( legal limit ) will be needed so that the patient can better express their expectations and so the surgeon can explain as clearly as possible the solutions and highlight their advantages and disadvantages. Consultations are held in French or English. Only the first consultation is charged (80 euros without taxes). During the initial consultation, the surgeon will determine the cost of the procedure * and give you a detailed estimate. Free on-site parking is available.
* All inclusive price ( stay in clinic , operating room fees , implantable medical devices, anesthesia fee, surgeon's fee , postoperative follow-up) excluding cost of any compression garments ( 60-120 euros) pharmaceutical products and anesthesia consultation (50 euros).
Process for the procedures:
The procedures take place at the St. Jean Polyclinic, which is ideally located in Cagnes- sur-Mer, halfway between Cannes and Antibes - Nice- Monaco and 10 minutes from Nice airport. The clinic has modern surgical resources and post-operatory care services.
Before all reconstructive or cosmetic surgery, a consultation with an anesthesiologist at the Saint-Jean Polyclinic is required at least 48 hours in advance.
For specific details relating to anesthesia and hospitalization for each procedure see: Anesthesia in plastic surgery.
After leaving the clinic, Dr. Laveaux will personally perform the postoperative follow-up consultation on a date that suits you.
Nowadays, the after effects of postoperative cosmetic surgery are more manageable with limited or no pain and immediate return to daily activities. Only activities requiring special effort may need to be delayed for a few days. The anesthesia is extremely light and the side-effects quickly fade away. Therefore there is no reason to be afraid.
