The offices of New England Plastic Surgical Associates are located in the Chatham Center building in Newton and also in the historic Vendome complex in the Back Bay in Boston. Consultation and care take place in all offices by appointment. Our aesthetic skin care services are located in the Newton office suites. Smaller surgical procedures may be performed in our procedure room in the Boston office suites. More complex surgeries are performed in the operating suites at The Boston Center for Ambulatory Surgery in the Vendome complex, or at St Elizabeth’s Medical Center which is adjacent to our Boston offices. The Boston Center for Ambulatory Surgery is a fully accredited surgicenter located on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. St Elizabeth’s Medical Center is a Steward Healthcare tertiary hospital and research center and is affiliated with Tuft University.
A consultation with Dr Volpe is necessary prior to cosmetic surgery and therapies. Although some treatments such as Botox or wrinkle fillers may be performed on the same day as the consultation, consultations for surgery are performed prior to the surgical date. A consultation is a time to explain your concerns and wishes, be examined, and to have an honest discussion of your various alternatives, including advantages and disadvantages of the various options along with expected results, risks, and post-operative care required. A consultation should never be brief. Bring lots of questions. If you have any significant health issues, you should try to bring any documentation or records that you may have. Also, if you have had previous cosmetic surgery in the area of concern, you should attempt to retrieve any records of your original treatment. In particular, operative notes of previous pertinent surgeries should be obtained- these records can usually be obtained either from your previous surgeon or from the medical records office of the original hospital. We conduct all aspects of your care with discretion, professionalism and privacy.
