Welcome! Your journey to a new look begins with a consultation in our office. Dr. Vincent Lepore values this opportunity to get to know you and understand the changes you'd like to see. After hearing your concerns, he will carefully assess your desired goals, and advise you on how to achieve the best results. To make the most of this visit, we encourage you to review this page and take a bit of time to prepare for your cosmetic plastic surgery consultation in San Jose with Dr. Lepore.
Before you visit our office, it's important to really think about what you hope to achieve through your cosmetic procedure. Although you may want a nose like a certain actor's or breasts like a certain supermodel, think about specifics that relate to you. Statements such as, "I want my breasts to be fuller but natural looking," or "I don't like the bump on the bridge of my nose," help Dr. Lepore visualize what you'd like to achieve. He will give you his expert assessment of how your goals relate to your unique anatomy and set of features.
Once you're ready to share your cosmetic goals with Dr. Lepore, it's time to request a consultation. In our office, consultations for cosmetic procedures are free of charge. You may use our online form or, you can call our office at (408) 356-4241 for an appointment.

When you come in on appointment day, you'll be welcomed by one of our staff members and then asked for a form of I.D. and an insurance card. Although most cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance, we're required to ask because we have a surgical center within our office. We will also check to see whether any portion of your treatment may be covered by insurance.
You'll most likely begin your visit by having a chat with Dr. Lepore to discuss your goals, express concerns, and ask questions. If you're hesitant about sharing personal matters with a physician, be reassured that most patients find it easy to communicate with Dr. Lepore. Keep in mind that he has extensive experience in all areas of plastic surgery. It's likely he has helped people with concerns similar to yours, many times. This visit is a time to share your personal concerns in a comfortable and professional atmosphere.
In addition to reviewing your goals, Dr. Lepore will review your medical history. Depending on the situation, your blood pressure and weight may also be checked. You may be asked to change into a patient gown in private, so Dr. Lepore can examine the areas you'd like to improve.
After an unhurried conversation and thorough assessment, Dr. Lepore will recommend a treatment plan that incorporates your unique goals and anatomy.
