Making an Appointment

If you would like to make an appointment at the Center for Human Appearance, you can either:

Patient confidentiality is key at the Center. All staff members have received training to protect privacy and are able to answer questions regarding related issues.

For information about insurance coverage, please visit the UPHS patient insurance site or read below about coverage for certain types of procedures:

Reconstructive Surgery
When surgery is reconstructive – to improve appearance or function after an accident, cancer surgery or for a congenital (at birth) deformity, check with your insurance company to verify coverage of the surgery.

Elective Cosmetic Surgery
To our knowledge, no insurance carriers reimburse physicians for cosmetic surgery. We cannot request reimbursement from your insurance company, nor can we help you get reimbursement.

Should you decide to proceed with cosmetic surgery, the office visit fee will be applied to your surgical fee.

In some instances, part of your treatment may be medically necessary. In this case, your insurance company will determine which portions of the surgery your plan covers. Before you schedule surgery, be sure to talk directly with your insurance company representative so you know how much you are responsible for paying, and how much your insurance will contribute.

Consultation With our Psychologists
Check with your insurance company to verify coverage for consultation with our psychologists.
