Right now, the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the lives and routines of everyone in the United States—especially here in New York City. Dr. B. Aviva Preminger and her entire staff at Preminger Plastic Surgery encourage everyone to practice safe and healthy habits during the coronavirus pandemic, including social distancing. While we have suspended all elective procedures at this time, this is a great opportunity to schedule a virtual consultation so you’ll be ready for your plastic surgery once the pandemic has passed.

The Benefits of a Virtual Consult

Using the telehealth capabilities that are available at our boutique-style office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, you can have a virtual consultation with Dr. Preminger as you remain in the comfort of your own home. While you cooped up inside, now is the perfect time for a virtual consultation so that you don’t have to worry about taking time off from work.

Thanks to sophisticated technology like the 3D imaging Crisalix program, you can see fully rendered images of what you’ll look like after the successful surgery is complete. During your virtual consultation, Dr. Preminger welcomes any questions or concerns that you may have about your proposed procedure, including preparations before the surgery and any after-care recommendations. Dr. Preminger still can review your medical history, making sure you’re a good candidate for your surgery of choice. You also can decide if you’d like to schedule your procedure once we resume normal operations.

Virtual consults aren’t just for new patients

A virtual consult can be a great choice for anyone in recovery from a recent plastic surgical procedure that doesn’t want to risk getting out right now or may have needed to quarantine because of possible COVID-19 exposure.  

Remember, too, that our office remains open for emergency care: post-operative appointments and lacerations. This will allow you to receive the care you need from a medical professional without going to the emergency room and risking exposure to coronavirus or using resources that are needed during the pandemic.

Virtual Consultation with Manhattan Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Preminger continues to monitor the news and changing developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will remain in compliance with current health and safety recommendations, including those mandated by the CDC and WHO. Currently, we are seeing just one patient at a time in our office as part of our protocols for social distancing. We also are sterilizing, sanitizing, and disinfecting between each patient visit. Patients are asked to sanitize or wash their hands upon entering our plastic surgery office in Manhattan.

Our phone lines remain open, and Dr. Preminger is available for virtual consultations. If you have any questions, call our office at (212) 706-1900 or contact us today. To help you get started, Dr. Preminger invites you to browse our extensive collection of before and after photos showcasing results from her patients, as well as her patient education videos that share information about various plastic surgery procedures. We continue to serve our patients located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and in New York City.
