Virtual Consultations for Plastic Surgery

For patients who live more than two hours away, Dr. Restifo is able to conduct personal and informative consultations by phone and/or by using technology like Skype. Patients usually send photos of the area of their body that they would like to be treated. Dr. Restifo reviews the file(s) and then converses with the patient via phone or Skype to recommend a treatment plan. Medical histories and other documentation can also be exchanged in preparation for your formal pre-surgery consultation with Dr. Restifo in Orange, CT.

Prior to Plastic Surgery

Restifo-6068Patients should plan to arrive in Orange several days prior to surgery in order to formally consult with Dr. Restifo and undergo necessary testing and examinations. Dr. Restifo will also review the surgical plan at this time and will ensure all questions are addressed. Our patient care coordinators can assist out-of-town patients to arrange for accommodations, transportation, and aftercare.

Out-of-town patients can fly into Hartford International Airport, located approximately 45 minutes by car from Orange, CT.

After Surgery

Our team will ensure that after surgery, the patient is escorted to a comfortable recovery space. Within several days after surgery, Dr. Restifo will remove the surgical dressings and sutures and clear the patient to return home.

In the event that a patient needs to be seen in their own area, Dr. Restifo will work with a board-certified plastic surgeon in their area to coordinate care.

More about Restifo Plastic Surgery

Restifo-5870Restifo Plastic Surgery is one of the only ultra-specialized practices in the Northeast. Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty, but a very diverse one, encompassing a variety of disciplines, such as facial surgery, hand surgery, trauma reconstructions, etc. As in many professions, concentrating on only a single area allows for the development of greater degrees of expertise as well as practices that address the subtle nuances of a specialty, thereby leading to the best possible outcomes. Accordingly, both Dr. Restifo and his partner, Dr. Johnny Mao have mastered their respective craft by concentrating on specific areas: Dr. Restifo, the breast and body and Dr. Mao, cosmetic surgery of the face and nose as well as minimally invasive lasers and injectables.

Both Dr. Restifo and Dr. Mao are highly respected, experienced, and board-certified in their respective fields, and are equally committed to their patients’ health, safety and complete satisfaction. Call for a consultation today 203.772.1444.
