Your Consultation

In Office

Step 1 – Scheduling Your Consultation

Your first experience with Careaga Plastic Surgery Center begins with our professional and courteous staff.  Rest assured that our staff can answer all of your questions and help you understand the breast, body and facial enhancement services and surgical procedures we offer.  We offer flexible and extended office hours to accommodate your schedule.


Prior to your procedure and/or surgery, you will be given an educational package with detailed explanations of the procedure/surgery, anesthesia (if needed) and after care.  Your informed consent is important to us.

At Careaga Plastic Surgery Center we continually strive for a standard of excellence in personalized care that sets us apart from other aesthetic (plastic) surgery practices.  Our high standards enable us to provide the quality cosmetic enhancement services that our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and follow strict standards that ensure your surgery will go smoothly and provide the results you desire.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask.


No matter how many hundreds of times they have performed a specific procedure, Dr. Careaga and Dr. Durand understand that no surgery is routine. Each and every patient is treated as an individual with his or her own aesthetic goals and unique physical characteristics.

The staff at Careaga Plastic Surgery never take for granted the trust and confidence you have in us. For this reason, a review of your medical history, your current health, your expectations for your surgery or procedure, and your goals and motivations for electing a plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure are all taken into consideration before we will proceed.

As a guiding philosophy, Dr. Durand and Dr. Careaga believe that excellence in performing plastic surgery procedures is derived from their education, advanced training, and experience.  Your doctors continually strive to stay current on the latest techniques and standards so they can provide their patients with the safest medical/surgical environment, and the most optimal results.

If you would like to have your procedure as soon as possible, please inform us of this so we can expedite the process.
  3. If you have any questions prior to your phone consultation, please let us know and a patient coordinator will contact you as soon as possible.
  4. If you decide to book your procedure with us, please have all your preoperative lab work and exams done three weeks prior to your surgery. These can be done where you live.
  5. We will schedule an in-office appointment for you with your doctor the day before your surgery. At this appointment, you can meet him in person, sign all consent forms, and take your before pictures.
