Is there a consultation fee? What is the cost of surgery? What does it include?
To meet with Dr. Burgess, there is a consultation fee of $200. The consultation fee is collected over the phone when making your appointment, and a receipt will be mailed along with your new patient information packet.
Our cosmetic surgeries are priced per hour for anesthesia and operating room, with a separate surgeon’s fee. Therefore, the final cost depends on the procedure and time that it takes to perform. After an in-office consultation with Dr. Burgess, you will be provided with a cosmetic price quote.
Once you receive your price quote it will include the following:
- Surgeon’s fee
- Operating room fee
- Anesthesia fee
- Miscellaneous items needed for your specific procedure. (i.e. implants, bra, and garment)
- Pre op and all of your post op visits for one year
Additional costs may include:
- Mammogram and lab work (depending on your age and health)
- Prescription medications
- Possible overnight facility fee

Where is surgery performed?
Many of the surgeries are done at Meridian Park Medical Center, but some surgeries may be performed at other Legacy or Providence hospitals or certified surgery centers. A complete list of facilities where Dr. Burgess has privileges is below:
- Legacy Meridian Park Hospital
- Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital
- Providence Newberg Hospital
- Providence St. Vincent Hospital
- Center for Specialty Surgery
How soon can I have surgery done?
Depending on the surgery, you may be able to schedule within the same month. However, we are usually scheduling 1-2 months out from your consultation date. Please plan in advance.
We are currently scheduling about 2 months out for a new patient consultation.
How often are follow-up visits?
You will visit the office 1-5 days after surgery. You will then come back to the office weekly as needed, and then we love to see patients for their one year anniversary.
How soon can I get into a swimming pool or hot tub?
This depends on the procedure. After most surgeries you can get into a pool when your incisions have healed, usually after 6-8 weeks. However, hot tubs provide potential thermal injury and should not be entered for at least three months, especially after an abdominoplasty.
How soon after surgery can I travel?
Long distance travel is not recommended until at least 2-3 weeks after smaller procedures, and 3-4 weeks after larger procedures.
