You have up to 72 hours before your appointment to cancel to obtain a full refund of your consultation fee.
The virtual consultation booking fee is applied to your surgical procedure. The consultation booking fee cannot be applied towards Botox, filler, lasers, or any other in-office procedures.
The consultation here at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre is probably one of the most important steps in the entire process. During that visit, we take the time to understand specifically what your concerns are and what you are hoping to achieve with surgery. We will also perform a detailed history and physical exam and review with you a customized surgical plan.
We will describe the procedures with you in detail and answer all your questions. Because we perform the consultations ourselves and there are limited consultation spots available a week, the consultation fee goes towards the surgical procedure.
We also offer video consultations for out-of-Nairobi patients.
No, this would be very unlikely unless it was a very small procedure done under local anesthesia and we happen to have a cancellation. Prior to surgery, you will need to get medical clearance from your doctor and routine blood tests prior to surgery which usually takes some time.
After the consultation, you will also have a pre-op appointment with us to review instructions and consent forms and to be fitted for any garments prior to surgery. However, if you do urgently want to schedule surgery, please let us know and here at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we’ll do our best to help you.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre specializes in plastic surgery of the female and male anatomy.
First please get clearance for the surgery by your primary care or specialist first before scheduling your consultation. Our surgeons here at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre will see you in consultation and review on a case-by-case basis. You should bring your clearance with you to the consultation.
No. The consultation fee is for the time spent with us where we will discuss your individual concerns and aesthetic goals, perform a detailed exam and analysis and formulate a customized plan.
The consultation fee needs to be processed to make an appointment. We process the payment automatically during the consultation booking and it will be applied to the surgical fee. Basically, appointments cannot be made without the consultation fee being processed.
After you have scheduled your consultation, our office will email you a sign-up invitation where you will fill outpatient consent forms and upload your photos.
Each consultation is an hour or so long and our consultant surgeons will want both of you to get the full attention you deserve. You will each need your own consultation to be assessed by the surgeon consultants, but you are welcome to be present for each other’s visit. We will try to accommodate back-to-back appointments as best we can.
Labiaplasty removes excess labia minora and shapes it. It reduces rubbing of the labia in clothing. It reduces pulling and tugging during intercourse. It helps patients feel more comfortable in tight clothing and with exercise.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we do not perform bladder lifts since that is a urologic surgery. However, if you want both surgeries to be performed at the same time, we could perform a joint surgery with another surgeon where we operate at the same time.
Labia shape and length is largely genetic. Some changes occur post pregnancy due to hormones or injuries from childbirth. Some patients have lost a lot of weight resulting in excess labia tissues.
Most patients feel significant improvement with intimacy after labiaplasty because removal of excess tissue that pulls or causes discomfort is no longer there. Also for patients who have excess clitoral hood, this excess tissue often blocks the clitoris so reduction helps with sensation and makes it easier for patients to orgasm. Also because patients are more confident with the way their vagina looks the report an improvement in their sex life.
Our surgeons here at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre often perform clitoral hood reduction with labiaplasty. It is not removed, but rather he trims the excess wrinkles or extra folds in order to create a smoother and more balanced shape.
Vaginal rejuvenation is non-surgical and has no downtime. It uses radio frequency to increase collagen to the tissues, tightening it. It also increases blood flow to the vaginal area, which increases moisture and sensation to the clitoris and G-spot, which are two of the specific areas treated.
Asymmetry is very common – in fact, almost half of the patients we perform labiaplasty on are for the asymmetry. We have patients who range from 16-60 who have this surgery done.
The vagina is one of the most important parts of the female body. The vagina should be revered- it is where life is created! Feminine power is one of the strongest forces that exists. And when it comes to intimacy, women want to feel confident about the way they look in this area.
They don’t want to have discomfort when performing activities they enjoy, like yoga, spinning, working out, or worrying when wearing tight leggings or jeans from rubbing. Women should be able to embrace loving their vagina and caring for it like the rest of their body.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we are passionate about breaking down any social boundaries or embarrassment when having conversations about the vagina or labia. Many of our patients have suffered for years with discomfort, afraid to talk about the subject.
Women should be able to feel comfortable talking about and loving all parts of their body.
Most patients feel significant improvement with intimacy after labiaplasty because removal of excess tissue that pulls or causes discomfort is no longer there.
Many patients have excess folds of clitoral hood that sometimes blocks the clitoris when trying to orgasm. For these patients, we also perform a clitoral hood reduction to trim these extra folds that help many with sensation or make it easier to orgasm. The incision is not on the clitoris, rather it removes the excess tissue around the clitoris, so none of the nerves are negatively affected. This is one reason why it is extremely important to have this surgery done by a labiaplasty specialist to ensure it is done as safely and as meticulously as possible.
Over the years, having done hundreds of labiaplasty surgeries, our surgeons have developed a unique and personal technique that involves artistic and meticulous shaping and suturing. The surgery takes us 3-3.5 hours, and we use magnifying lenses for extra precision. Millimeters matter to us! If you inquire about labiaplasty, make sure to ask about the technique. Like everything else, it’s extremely important.
You should avoid driving or anything that involves sitting directly on the surgical site the first few weeks after your procedure. Driving may be uncomfortable due to the remaining swelling so it is best to take it easy and listen to your body.
No. They will not be able to tell you ever had surgery done! As AJ Plastic Surgery Centre surgeons perform many vaginal rejuvenation procedures, we often see our post-op patients many times after surgery, and honestly, we can usually not find the scar.
We believe that in such a sensitive area, it is critical that it not look like surgery was ever done. There is also no post-op pain and a quick recovery. With the technique our surgeons have developed, our patients are able to achieve unparalleled results.
We believe that with plastic surgery, there is always not only a physical change but also an emotional change. Through changing one’s physical appearance, women often feel more confident, more in alignment with what they find to be aesthetically beautiful, and that confidence often manifests itself as being sexier.
So, when you ask if they feel more sexually appealing – the answer is yes, because they feel more comfortable with themselves and more confident.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we have developed a gentle technique that has little to no pain and quick recovery. Patients usually do not require pain medication after surgery.
The labia do get swollen after surgery so we have patients apply ointment and ice.
Patients cannot have sex or wear tight clothing for 1 month.
Many women have asymmetry of their labia minora – it is very common. In some cases, one side is much longer than the other, or they have different shapes.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we perform labiaplasty surgery to help create a symmetric tucked-in shape.
Yes, at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we often perform liposuction in this area. It helps reduce the bulge or fullness that can sometimes be seen in clothing.
We have developed a special technique that precisely shapes the labia and clitoral hood if necessary. The “wedge” technique takes a pie-shaped piece out of the labia which leaves behind the dark wrinkly edge that most women don’t like. Also, the wedge technique produces a suture line that is horizontal to the natural curve of the labia that makes it very visible and often pulls apart.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we have performed many revisions on wedge labiaplasty surgeries.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we have developed a special technique that has little to no pain. Most patients don’t take pain killers. If you google on the internet, there are horror stories of labiaplasty recovery being excruciating or having bleeding for a month, but it doesn’t have to be this way. It does not hurt to pee or have a period because of the water-tight closure.
Many women seek labiaplasty, so they feel more comfortable in tight clothing. Less rubbing and pain with exercise, so there is less pinching with various activities and intercourse. Many women want to have their labia symmetric tucked in shape for aesthetic reasons or to feel more confident.
Vaginal rejuvenation helps restore collagen after childbirth or aging and helps increase sensation, tightness, moisture, and smoothness of the skin.
Why is it important? Vaginas are important! Vaginas are the gateway to life. We should cherish it as we cherish the rest of our body.
Yes. Our labiaplasty patients tell us that they feel like they always have to tuck in the excess labia when they are wearing yoga pants, swimwear and leggings.
It is not just for aesthetics, it significantly helps make women feel more comfortable without rubbing, tugging, pulling constantly on the excess labia.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we’ve done a lot of revision labiaplasties on patients who have had this surgery elsewhere and we understand and know what you mean by the bumps. The bumps have to do with irregular and large suturing of the edge.
We have developed a special labiaplasty technique that creates pretty and natural results. The surgery itself takes anywhere from 3 to 4 hours. We think it is super important to make it look like nothing was ever done, the suture line is invisible, and it looks natural.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we have developed a special labiaplasty technique that is really gentle and has little to no pain. Most of our patients take one, maybe two tylenol. We have a special way of closing the edge that is watertight, so it does not hurt to pee.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we perform clitoral hood reduction with labiaplasty. It is not removed, but rather we trim the excess wrinkles or extra folds in order to create a smoother and more balanced shape. The incision is not on the clitoris, rather it removes the excess tissue around the clitoris, so none of the nerves are negatively affected.
This is one reason why it is extremely important to have this surgery done by a labiaplasty specialist to ensure it is done as safely and as meticulously as possible.
It does not. Labiaplasty only removes excess labia minora and sometimes clitoral hood. In addition to being a specialist in labiaplasty surgery, we also perform vaginal rejuvenation procedures on our patients which use radio frequency technology to tighten the tissues, build collagen to the tissues improving the appearance, and increase blood flow to the tissues which increases sensation and moisture.
While labiaplasty removes tissues and reshapes the labia minora, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments will improve the remaining tissue and tighten the tissues that have stretched over time. ThermiVA builds collagen and promotes collagen production, so the tightening effect can be felt for up to a month or two after the treatment.
Studies have shown that this procedure increases the number and intensity of orgasms on the clitoris and G-spot. Many of our patients do a combination of labiaplasty surgery as well as vaginal rejuvenation procedures to achieve their optimum results.
It depends on the insurance coverage but from what we have seen most consider this to be an elective cosmetic procedure.
Also, this surgery is more than just cutting off the labia – to produce perfect aesthetic results there is a significant amount of artistry and technique involved.
Most of the AJ Plastic Surgery Centre patients who get labiaplasty Surgery do it for improved comfort, greater confidence, and also improved aesthetics. For many women, excess labia tissue or long labia causes pinching, discomfort, or creates a bulge in swimwear or tight clothing that they don’t like. Some women have long extensions that rub or get caught or are painful during sex or intimacy. Some have asymmetry where one side is longer, or they have tears from childbirth.
However, women have labiaplasty with us for aesthetic reasons and we have developed a special labiaplasty technique that creates a beautiful tucked-in, symmetric, natural-looking shape. It’s hard to describe what a significant difference it makes for women – truly, the only way is to see the results.
After having their labiaplasty surgery, women tell us they feel a sense of peace and confidence. They no longer have to constantly adjust themselves to prevent rubbing or pain. They can confidently wear clothing without having to worry about tucking in the labia that show.
Many of AJ Plastic Surgery Centre patients report they no longer have pain with intercourse. Just not having to worry about or think about their labia or have constant discomfort greatly improves their quality of life. They also feel an increase in pleasurable sensation with intercourse and also that they feel more confident and freer in intimate situations.
Yes. However, the tightening that was done with the tummy tuck will likely stretch out again and you may need to re-do the tummy tuck.
It’s really a personal choice. It’s ideal to wait until you are done having kids, but many patients do get tummy tuck before then. Many of AJ Plastic Surgery Centre patients want to have a flatter and tighter stomach now and don’t want to wait for years until they are much older.
The most important thing to know is that you may need to re-do the tummy tuck after future pregnancies.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we have done many tummy tucks on patients after weight loss surgery. It is one of the things we specialize in.
The only difference between a tummy tuck and an extended tummy tuck is that an extended tummy tuck is for patients with wider anatomy.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we will determine which procedure you need when we assess your anatomy during the consultation.
What you are describing is usually caused from excess fat in mons area and over-pulling of the pubic area in an unnatural direction. If patients have excess fat, we perform liposuction of the mons at the same time as the pubic lift and also, we carefully tailor the way the pubic area is elevated. That way the mons and pubic area has a natural and blended shape.
The tissue from tummy tuck and other surgeries is placed in biohazard waste and disposed-off.
A tummy tuck repairs the abdominal muscles, tightens the abdominal wall and removes and tightens excess skin. Liposuction removes and thins excess fat.
Patients’ desired goals and anatomy determines the choice of procedure. The best thing is to do a consultation with AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, and we’ll discuss all options.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre would not recommend this for several reasons.
First off, the total amount of OR time is very long. Both surgeries have long incisions and to properly close them meticulously in layers for the best possible scar, it takes a very long time.
Second, the tummy tuck pulls the skin downward, and this also pulls on the breast lift scars.
Lastly, for post op care. When doing the tummy tuck, patients cannot use their abs and must use their arms to pull themselves out of bed, out of a car etc., and for breast surgery, patients cannot use their arms to pull or lift for 2 weeks.
Therefore, to properly care for each surgery site the best we believe in doing them separately.
The surgical plan depends on each person’s anatomy and aesthetic goals but in general AJ Plastic Surgery Centre usually recommends a tummy tuck first in order to tighten the core, remove excess skin, and put it in place.
Then we usually do 360 Lipo with or without fat transfer to the butt in order to refine the curves and overall shape. We usually perform the breast surgery last because we feel that it is easier for women to visualize what breast size is the most proportionate to the rest of their body once the waist and hips are set.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre would recommend being close to your goal weight before having surgery. And continuing a healthy diet and exercise is recommended after surgery.
Yes, but it depends on your anatomy, total OR time, and the areas that need to be liposuction. The blood supply to the stomach skin during the tummy tuck runs through the fat so it is not recommended to do extensive or aggressive liposuction at the same time as a tummy tuck.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre often perform liposuction of the mons pubis in conjunction with tummy tuck surgery.
It is recommended that your BMI be close to 30 to have a tummy tuck. However, there are some exceptions that can be made based on patient anatomy and overall health.
First please get clearance for the surgery by your primary care or specialist first before scheduling your consultation. AJ Plastic Surgery Centre will see you in consultation and review on a case-by-case basis.
You should bring your clearance with you to the consultation. As long as your diabetes is well controlled and your Hemoglobin A1C and glucose are normal and you are overall healthy, you should be able to get a tummy tuck.
If patients have an umbilical hernia, the hernia is repaired at the same time as the tummy tuck by one of our general surgeon colleagues. This is the best time to repair the hernia since we are all focused on protecting the blood supply to the belly button.
Usually during umbilical hernia repair (not done with the tummy tuck) the general surgeon cuts off the base of the belly button and fixes the hernia- but then if patients want a tummy tuck in the future, the belly button has already been cut off.
So, if you have an umbilical hernia and need a tummy tuck- PLEASE do it at the same time.
In addition to cosmetic benefits, abdominoplasty strengthens the core, helps with back pain, and also helps support the pelvic floor.
This surgery is truly life-changing for patients.
Because these surgeries involve surgery on opposite parts of the body, and for post-op care and healing reasons, they need to be done staged, at separate surgeries to provide the best results.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre surgeons believe in doing each surgery as perfectly as possible. We will discuss the order of procedures and timing at the consultation.
It is extremely important to take into consideration the total OR time and also post-op care that is needed for each surgery.
You would want your weight to be stable or to be close to goal weight prior to having a tummy tuck – this is usually at least 4-6 months after delivery.
However, AJ Plastic Surgery Centre do book surgeries about 6-9 months in advance so we could start with a consultation a few months after you deliver or when you are about 10 pounds within your goal weight.
Anyone in generally good physical shape and good health looking for a more feminine figure and rounder butt is a good candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.
It is important to keep in mind that you will need to have enough fat to donate from other areas of your body to create a nice shape to your buttocks.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre does not perform butt implant removal.
We specialize in Brazilian Butt Lift with natural fat transfer to the buttocks.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre surgeons tailor the size and shape of the Brazilian Butt Lift to each patient’s volume and aesthetic desires.
For those patients who desire a lot of volume, and a lot of fat is transferred, the pant size increases, but for those who do it mostly for shaping with less fat transferred, there isn’t a change.
Surgical technique is really the most important thing when it comes to results and post-op pain. At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we believe that surgery can be done in a way that’s careful, gentle and meticulous so patients have a quick recovery and no pain.
No. At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we specialize in initial rhinoplasty surgery.
No, rhinoplasty is not only for cosmetic concerns. While many people seek rhinoplasty to improve their appearance or facial profile, some patients want to resolve functional issues like a deviated septum.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, our philosophy on rhinoplasty is that patients should always look like themselves – that changes should be natural and refined. In the long run, conservative surgery preserves results longer and minimizes scar tissue formation that can distort the nose resulting in an “overdone” look.
Most patients see the complete results of their rhinoplasty about three to four months after their surgery. During this time frame, the swelling will go down and allow the tissues to fully heal.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre surgeons’ innovative rhinoplasty techniques are specifically designed to yield the best possible results for every patient.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we specialize in cosmetic revision breast surgery. We do not do post mastectomy breast reconstruction surgery.
Yes. At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we remove breast implants. When breast implants are removed, the capsule around it must also be removed.
Yes, some surgeries can be combined as Long as the OR time is not too long, and also that the post op care can be done properly by the patient. For example, we would never do tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift since one surgery site is always crushed, and we would never do breasts and Brazilian butt lift for the same reason.
Our goal at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre is to never squeeze in as many surgeries as possible and rush; our goal is to create the best possible results for my patients. You only have one body- the results should never be compromised for inconvenience.
Your body genetically has a certain number of fat cells deposited in particular areas. Some people are just born with more fat cells in their abdomen, flanks, inner thighs and no matter what they do, they just can’t lose the fat there. Liposuction removes the total number of fat cells that has preferentially deposited in these areas. If you gain weight, each fat cell in the body gets bigger, but because you have fewer fat cells in liposuctioned areas, you should proportionately gain less in the liposuctioned areas.
It is always a possibility that if you gain a lot of weight, you may need liposuction again.
Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for diet and exercise. It is for re-shaping the body to treat areas that have a dis-proportionate amount of fat. Liposuction is ideally designed for pockets of fat in isolated areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.
We always tell our patients to start with diet and exercise and to maintain a stable weight before undergoing liposuction. However, having liposuction often motivates patients who look better in their leggings or workout clothes, to begin a healthier lifestyle, and many people lose even more weight after their procedure.
We would say that the ideal candidate for liposuction is someone who is of healthy height and weight with small pockets of fat that they just can’t lose despite diet and exercise. As long as there are a few centimeters of fat present in an area, it can be removed.
Many of AJ Plastic Surgery Centre patients are very fit bikini models who don’t like the extra fat bulge or shape of their inner or outer thigh or feel that they have a “muffin top” making their waistline bigger than desired.
Liposuction is ideal for this type of re-shaping. In general, if you’re unsure, it’s best to see a plastic surgeon in consultation to evaluate your particular anatomy and decide if you are a candidate for liposuction.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we perform liposuction in a way where all areas blend naturally into the surrounding areas. It doesn’t prevent fat loss.
We would recommend you schedule a consultation where our surgeon consultants can have an in-depth discussion about this and all of your questions.
The liposuction cannulas make tiny tracks as they remove fat. At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we tell patients to imagine a sponge with small holes. The compression garments help squeeze all the fluid and tissues down to allow for a smooth flat thin contour.
They are sometimes cumbersome to wear, but worth it to have the best possible outcome. One of our celebrity liposuction patients who had to do several red-carpet events soon after their surgery found some compression garments that give a nice smooth contour under clothing. We now use these often for our patients, so the garments are less obvious under clothing.
Any surgical procedure has risks of anesthesia, risks of getting a blood clot, and a number of other complications. Many of the serious complications from liposuction in the past involved cardiac reactions to the local anesthesia injected in the body before the procedure.
Also, procedures involving large volumes of liposuction (> 5L) resulted in fluid shifts that caused cardiac and respiratory problems. These occurrences are now quite rare.
A safe, well-trained surgeons will carefully calculate and keep track of the amount of local anesthesia used as well as the amount of liposuction removed. A partnership and good communication with the anesthesiologist will help to ensure the safest conditions possible.
We know exactly what you are talking about – we can spot bad liposuction a mile away. There is always the possibility of asymmetry, skin dents, wrinkling, or folding.
However, experienced liposuction surgeons like ours should be able to avoid most of these things from happening. Most of the really bad liposuction results often come from over suctioning the fat causing the skin to stick unnaturally to the underlying structures.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we always tell patients that we have to leave a small cushion of fat under the skin to keep this from happening. We do the majority of the fat removal through surgery, and they do the rest with diet and exercise.
Soft sculpt is just a marketing term. From what we understand, it’s just liposuction performed awake with only local anesthesia. This can actually be more dangerous since you have to use much more lidocaine (numbing medicine).
The times there have been deaths from liposuction have been from too much numbing – lidocaine toxicity. The vibrating cannula they describe is just a PAL system that most surgeons use. At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we have developed a gentle multi-phase technique that is even less traumatic and creates smooth and natural results.
Thermi devices are cosmetic procedures that aims to reduce signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. As we get older, our collagen production decreases significantly. This deficiency causes certain age-related conditions like saggy jawlines and forehead wrinkles.
These devices can be used on the face, body, and vagina. At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we offer all three in our office.
Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation, ThermiVa, uses radio-frequency technology to help improve vaginal tightness, urinary incontinence, and the overall look of the labia minora and labia majora.
It can also improve intimacy and orgasm by increasing blood flow and sensation to the clitoris and G-spot!
Most patients require two to three procedures to get the optimal tightness they desire but will notice results with just one treatment. AJ Plastic Surgery Centre recommends a few times a year for maintenance.
Treatments should be spaced our 4-10 weeks apart because that is how long it takes collagen to build. Most patients require 2-3 treatments to get the optimal tightness they desire, but you will notice results with just one treatment.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre does not perform Butt Implant Removal. We specialize in Brazilian Butt Lift with natural fat transfer to the buttocks.
If you have had surgery with another surgeon and have a complication with your surgery or a bad outcome from your surgeon, it is recommended you speak with that surgeon first.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre specializes in revision plastic surgery, so this is something that we do a lot. We can provide second opinion consultations, but these need to be scheduled as a consultation since the evaluation is usually very complex and detailed.
Please have your operative and doctor’s notes and any photos from your previous surgery available for review. This information is very important for us to help you.
It is possible to have more than one procedure done at once taking into consideration the total OR time and also post-op care that is needed for each surgery.
For more extensive surgeries like a tummy tuck or Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), we perform each procedure separately for maximal patient safety and to provide patients with the best possible results. Our goal at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre is to never squeeze in as many surgeries as possible and rush; our goal is to create the best possible results for my patients. You only have one body; the results should never be compromised for the inconvenience.
During the consultation, we will create a customized plan and timeline based on your anatomy and the goals you are trying to achieve.
The surgical plan depends on each person’s anatomy and aesthetic goals but in general at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we usually recommend a tummy tuck first in order to tighten the core, remove excess skin and put it in place.
Then we usually do 360 Lipo with or without fat transfer to the butt in order to refine the curves and overall shape.
We usually perform the breast surgery last because we feel that it is easier for women to visualize what breast size is the most proportionate to the rest of their body once the waist and hips are set.
A Mommy makeover is a highly customized set of cosmetic procedures designed to help women restore and reshape their appearance after pregnancy.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, will determine exactly which procedures you may need and create a customized plan based on your anatomy and the goals you are hoping to achieve.
But as Mommy makeover encompasses several different procedures, our surgical consultants will take that into consideration when doing pricing.
We have developed a gentle technique for the surgeries we perform at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre; our patients have little to no pain after surgery and a quick recovery.
Most of our patients don’t need any pain medication at all or just take a few pain killers.
Each consultation is an hour-long and we want both of you to get the full attention you deserve. You will each need your own consultation to be assessed, but you are welcome to be present for each other’s visit.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we will try to accommodate back-to-back appointments as best we can.
At the end of your consultation, you will meet with the patient coordinator who will review the surgery schedule with you and reserve your surgery date with one of our consultant surgeons.
For any breast surgery you would want to make sure you are done breastfeeding and have no nipple discharge or liquid.
That varies from person to person but on average is several months after finishing breastfeeding
You will need to have an adult with you throughout your stay. On average patients stay for a week after surgery and up to 2 weeks for more extensive procedures.
At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we have developed a special technique that has a quick recovery so you will be walking right after surgery.
We recommend waiting 2 weeks before doing cardio but 6 weeks before resuming full workouts.
We partner with a number of concierge hotels within Nairobi that provide personalized care for our patients.
We also partner with post-operative plastic surgery nursing facilities and private nurses to help our patients have the best possible experience. We also have a list of hotels in the area that we recommend.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre surgical consultants will go over all of the information with you at the end of your consultation and they can assist you with scheduling arrangements.
If you are driving from out of Nairobi, most of the smaller surgeries require you to stay about a week after surgery but larger surgeries where drains are placed like tummy tuck or breast reduction may require you to stay longer.
If you are visiting from far away, you will need to stay at least a week in Nairobi, up to two weeks depending on the procedure and how far you are traveling.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre will go over your exact recovery during the consultation.
No we do not. Medical insurance does not cover cosmetic surgery but it may cover some other associated costs like lab work. We will advise on the financing options available for the surgery fee.
Yes, those can be paid with credit already in your digital facility digital wallet. At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we primarily accept M-PESA for the consult fee or surgery deposit.
The deposit to secure your surgery date is shown on the booking portal and it is applied as a credit towards your total surgery fee.
Every surgical garment is tailored to each individual patient and their procedure.
This is something AJ Plastic Surgery Centre will measure and provide for you in the office.
For patients who want to pay incrementally towards their surgery instead of a single large payment, we will accept multiple payments.
However, the entire surgery fee will be due 1 month prior to surgery unless advised otherwise.
Every patient’s anatomy is different and the complexity of each surgery varies from patient to patient as well as total OR time.
AJ Plastic Surgery Centre are able to give you a general range for each procedure but at the end of your consultation you will be given the exact price for your surgery.
In general, our office does not offer discounts. AJ Plastic Surgery Centre practice focuses on providing the best surgical outcomes and highest quality patient care experience.
