Should You Have Other Concerns About Out-of-Town Plastic Surgery in Long Island?
Swelling and bruising will often vary considerably between each patient and the surgery being performed. Regardless, Dr. Pincus and medical staff will work tirelessly to ensure that your recovery process is smooth, comfortable, and expedient. Swelling and discoloration may occur in more invasive surgeries, along with minor pain and discomfort or irritation from sites of the incisions. While many of these symptoms will gradually subside, Dr. Pincus and his staff will administer prescribed pain medication to manage pain. Also, you will be given thorough instructions on how to manage bandages until you have fully healed.
Each post-operative appointment will steadily track your healing progress. Generally, all surgeries require that patients refrain from strenuous or demanding physical activities for the first three or four weeks; however, this time will vary based on the procedure performed and the patient’s unique physiology.
Dr. Pincus will let you know when you are ready for exercise and intense physical activity.

Even after your plastic surgery recovery is complete, and your results are successful, we never want our patients to feel abandoned or left behind.

After months of interviewing several Doctors for an abdominoplasty and muscle repair, I knew the second I walked into the office of Dr. Pincus that I finally found the best surgeon for me. I felt extremely comfortable with him and everyone in his office. It was a completely different and more personable experience then any of the larger surgical groups I have visited. While meeting with Dr. Pincus, together we discussed my goals, concerns and expectations. Dr. Pincus discussed and explained in great detail everything on my two page list of questions. When leaving his office I was confident that he was the Doctor I was looking for all along and later called to schedule. I never had and regrets as I awaited the surgery and as expected the day of was all about me, and my well being from chatting before the surgery through spending the night in their surgical suite with a nurse that cared for me as if I was her daughter. Now three months post op, I have the confidence that I have been missing for years. No more sucking in my stomach or wearing large t-shirts to hide what could have NEVER been fixed with diet and exercise. Thank you Dr. Pincus and your staff! My only regret is that I did not meet you sooner! – R.V.

Plastic Surgery Patients FAQs
Q. Am I the right candidate for out-of-town plastic surgery in Long Island?
A. Ideal candidates for out-of-town plastic surgery are those who wish to correct minor or severe cosmetic issues and abnormalities. Many of our patients are experiencing physical changes due to aging or weight fluctuations that they wish to erase. Patients must be physically and physiologically healthy with no underlying conditions that might affect the surgery. Out-of-town plastic surgery patients should also have realistic expectations. Patients should also account for potentially staying a few days longer than intended; this way, patients have enough time to schedule their post-operative appointment.
Q. How much does plastic surgery cost in Long Island?
A. The cost of plastic surgery will vary dramatically depending on the extensiveness of the corrections made and additional factors, such as anesthesia, facility fees, geographical region, pre-surgical tests, and surgeon’s fees. You may also require prescription pain medications if post-operative pain becomes too uncomfortable for over-the-counter medication. Most cosmetic surgery is considered elective, and most insurance providers will not cover the procedure’s cost. If your insurance provider does not cover your treatment, Dr. Pincus offers financing to help you cover the cost of your treatment. Breast reconstruction surgery is often the exception to this rule as most patients seeking this procedure are recovering from a possible lumpectomy or mastectomy.
Q. Do you offer a plastic surgery recovery center?
A. Patients who receive our care have the opportunity to stay at our overnight recovery suite with advanced recovery services and constant contact with our professional personnel. However, if you are still recovering and would like the option of being able to see Dr. Pincus within the first week to two weeks of your recovery, patients may want to make arrangements at one of the many luxury resorts in the nearby area. Proper rest is a key way that patients recover quickly, making a hotel a great option for recovery. Additionally, being close to Dr. Pincus gives patients an added sense of security if any complications arise.
