Frequently Asked Questions
DO I NEED A REFERRAL FOR A COSMETIC PROCEDURE?
No. If you want to see Dr. Oxley for a cosmetic procedure all you need to do is contact our office to schedule a consultation.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE CONSULTATION?
You will meet one on one with Dr. Oxley. He will review your concerns and hopes and then discuss your options. He will discuss procedures that help you make a statement about your personality and your individuality.
WHAT IF I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND?
Once you’ve seen Dr. Oxley you can come back as many times as you want to discuss your procedures. We want you to be 100% comfortable with your choice.
WHAT WILL BE DISCUSSED?
Dr. Oxley will spend time listening to your hopes and concerns and then help you decide on the options that are best for you. He will discuss the positives and negatives of any procedure you hope to have.
HOW DO I DECIDE WHAT PROCEDURE TO GET?
This is why we schedule as many visits as necessary to make sure you are happy with your choices. After all, plastic surgery reflects your journey, your achievements, and your style.
WHAT OTHER SUPPORT DO I GET BEFORE SURGERY?
In addition to the consulting process, we will arrange a visit with one of our specialist nurses to help prepare you for surgery.
WHERE DOES THE SURGERY TAKE PLACE?
Dr. Oxley is a part owner of two private facilities in the Lower Mainland – Surrey’s Valley Surgery Centre (VSC) and Vancouver’s Ambulatory Surgery Centre (ASC). Both are fully accredited state-of-the-art facilities.
DO I NEED TO STAY OVERNIGHT?
The vast majority of surgeries can be done on an outpatient basis, meaning you can be home in your own bed that night. We will help arrange accommodations for out of town guests. For those choosing to stay overnight, that can be arranged in most circumstances.
DO YOU HAVE FINANCING?
We have a number of companies that we work with regularly to help provide different financing options.
HOW LONG IS THE WAIT TO GET A SURGERY DATE?
We make every effort to work with you and arrange a surgical time that accommodates your needs, whether this is a few weeks or months away.
CAN I GET MY PROCEDURE DONE IN A HOSPITAL?
For most people this is unnecessary and the experience at the private clinic is superior to that at a public hospital. In the rare circumstance that medical conditions require access to a hospital, efforts will be made to accommodate this, though the hospital will charge a facility fee.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SURGERY?
When you are sent home you will get Dr. Oxley’s personal cell phone number. You will be able to contact him with any concerns. On the rare occasion when he is unavailable, there is always a board-certified plastic surgeon backing him up.
ARE THERE VISITS AFTER SURGERY?
Dr. Oxley will see you regularly after surgery to help make your experience a positive one.
ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL CHARGES?
At your consultation, you will be given a quote for your procedure. This price is an all-inclusive price and Dr. Oxley won’t charge any additional fees. In addition, this is a guaranteed price and will be honored for one year after consultation.
