Plastic Surgery at Our Practice: Prior to Surgery

We always conduct a pre-surgical consultation with our patients. All consultations are private and personal, and cover a variety of discussion topics. Dr. Mabourakh encourages open, honest communication, so you will be asked about your intentions for the surgery, as well as what your cosmetic goals entail. You’ll discuss the selected procedures in-depth, covering the preparation, recovery, risks, benefits, and costs. Dr. Mabourakh will advise whether you’ll need to undergo pre-operative testing.

Insurance Coverage and Financing

We perform reconstructive procedures that may be covered under insurance such as breast reduction and breast reconstruction after mastectomy for breast cancer.  We work with most major insurance companies in Sacramento area, as wells Sacramento area HMO’s and will work with you to obtain prior authorization.

Our office accepts all major credit cards and financing is available through many finance companies such as Care Credit®.

A pre-surgery perk that our patients enjoy is an imaging program that allows us to show them what they will look like after their procedure. This is especially helpful with our rhinoplasty patients who are very curious about how facial proportion and balance will shift after a nose job.

During and After Surgery

All of our breast, face, and body contouring surgeries are performed in our own fully accredited surgical suite in Folsom. Other operations may be performed at one of the four hospitals at which Dr. Mabourakh maintains surgical privileges. These include Mercy Hospital of Folsom, Folsom Surgery Center, St. Joseph’s Medical Center, and Dameron Hospital in Stockton. All of our affiliated hospitals meet the strictest criteria of safety measures and ethical conduct. Prior to surgery, board-certified anesthesiologists administer medications to help patients drift through their surgery comfortably sedated. The length of time of your particular operation will vary, but all procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you won’t have to stay overnight in the hospital or surgical center.

After the operation is complete and the anesthesia has worn off, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you recover as swiftly as possible. Generally, patients are back to work within 2 to 7 days, but this depends on the procedure. Scarring will be minimal and when possible, hidden within the natural creases of the body.

Non-surgical Alternatives

If you’re seeking a non-surgical solution to common signs of aging, we may suggest the use of injectables and dermal fillers. We have a registered nurse who safely administers injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport, JUVÉDERM™, Restylane®, and other products. Depending on the product, injections can smooth wrinkles, plump up sunken features, and add volume to the lips.  Allé Med Spa is a full-service medical spa offering various peels, facials, microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, and other similar options for those patients interested in aesthetic treatments.
