Whether you want surgery or treatment for cosmetic, reconstructive, pain issues, or health reasons, Dr. Timothy Osborn's multi-disciplinary approach can help you achieve the results you desire.
The best way to determine if surgery or treatment is right for you is to contact us for a consultation with Dr. Timothy Osborn. As both a medical doctor and a dentist, Dr. Osborn and his team are uniquely qualified to provide surgeries that other practitioners may be unable to perform.
Every person is unique and every treatment is personalized. While some treatments may be less than an hour, those involving more extensive surgical procedures will require more time. Dr. Osborn will be happy to answer any questions you have about treatment duration during your consultation.
The cost of each surgery and treatment is dependent upon the specific situation. Prior to deciding to pursue treatment, we will ensure you are aware of all related fees and relevant insurance coverage. We also offer financing and convenient payment options.
At your consultation, Dr. Osborn will provide you with a framework for treatment time and recovery time. We will work with you to find the best day for your procedure.
Your medical history and current condition may preclude you from certain surgical treatments. However, as a highly-trained specialist, Dr. Osborn will be able to more fully answer this question following a thorough assessment.
There is no age limit to perform elective cosmetic surgery. However, Dr. Osborn requires parental consent for patients under 18 to perform any recommended treatment.
There are risks associated with all surgical procedures involving anesthesia. However, we have a highly qualified and experienced team with a proven track record of successful treatment.
Plan to rest the entire day. You may drowsy, so feel free to sleep. Avoid strenuous activities. Don't lift anything and keep your head propped up to minimize swelling.
We will provide you with detailed post-op instructions. Please do not ignore these instructions. Plan to have a friend or family member available to help ensure you keep up with your surgeon's guidance.
You make experience swelling. Relax, it's normal. For the first 24 hours, apply ice for 15 minutes, remove it for 15 minutes, and repeat the process. If swelling gets worse or you have a fever, please call us right away.
We recommend a liquid or soft food diet for the few days after surgery. Soups, yogurts, fruit milkshakes, applesauce, smoothies and mashed potatoes are good choices. Refrain from foods that are too hot, cold, tough, chewy, or spicy. To promote healing, choose foods rich in vitamin A and C like eggs, fish, sweet potatoes and stewed carrots.
If we provide antibiotics, take them all as directed.
After 24 hours, rinse gently with warm salt water (one teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water) four times a day. Rinse after every time you eat.
Don’t brush in the surgical area until fully healed, but continue to brush and floss the rest of your mouth.
Smoking and alcohol can slow the healing process.
