Meticulous attention to postoperative care is important for achieving your best possible result. Posted here are Dr. Lindsey’s patient care protocols for your convenience. Your specific patient care protocol will be reviewed with you in person at your preoperative visit.
If you decide to move forward with surgery, then a second office visit is often, but not always, required depending on the contemplated procedure. During this visit, the surgical plan is confirmed and a thorough patient history and physical examination are obtained. Consents are reviewed and signed, appropriate photographs are taken, and pre-operative and post-operative instructions and prescriptions are issued. Medical concerns are also addressed at this time with the patient's referring physician or other appropriate medical authority. Post-operative care, personal arrangements, and follow-up office visits are also confirmed at that time.
Dr. Lindsey continues as associate clinical professor of surgery at Tulane University where he participates in the didactic and clinical training of the plastic surgery fellows.
