Preparing for Plastic Surgery

Preparing for Plastic Surgery

The cosmetic surgery process can be a complicated one. At our Scottsdale plastic surgery office, Dr. Robert Bonillas and his considerate staff work with each patient to prepare a personal treatment plan specifically tailored to their individual needs. Our knowledgeable team will be by your side throughout the entire cosmetic surgery process to help guide you, address any concerns you may have, and assist you in reaching your goals.


An initial consultation with Dr. Bonillas gives our patients a chance to meet the staff and everyone involved in their procedure. During this time, they will have the opportunity to thoroughly discuss their interests as well as ideal final outcomes. Dr. Bonillas has a large selection of before and after pictures from previous patients to look through which allows potential patients to become comfortable with his work. This is also an ideal time to speak with our cosmetic surgery staff about insurance and financial considerations. We do offer several financial options for our clients that you can discuss at this time. Our team will address any and all concerns clients may have and deal with them openly and honestly.

Preoperative Appointment

Once your surgery is scheduled, Dr. Bonillas will book a preoperative appointment in order to discuss and review your procedure with you. Dependent on the type of Scottsdale plastic surgery you have opted for, you may be given consent forms to sign as well as prescriptions to fill. If preoperative photographs have not yet been taken, they may also be performed at this time.

Day Prior to Surgery

The day before to your surgery, it will be extremely important to make sure the proper arrangements are made. Depending on your procedure you may need to arrange for a ride to and from the surgery center. You should also shower with an antibacterial soap, avoid eating after the designated time given to you, and follow any other instructions provided by Dr. Bonillas to maximize your results.

Day of Surgery

On the day of surgery, please arrive an hour early to check in and fill out any necessary paperwork. It is best to wear loose fitting clothing and leave all valuables at home. When your procedure is complete, you will most likely remain in the recovery room for several hours so that doctors and nurses can check on your recovery process. You must have someone to drive you home and assist you after surgery. Start taking any medications prescribed to you by the doctor and limit your activity for at least the first 48 hours after surgery.

Follow-up Appointments

You will most likely be scheduled for follow-up appointments with Dr. Bonillas to track your healing, remove bandages or dressings, and properly document your results.


Scottsdale Plastics accepts cash, personal checks, and most major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.

We also offer a few options for financing your elective procedures to ensure that economic considerations do not hinder you from obtaining your procedure. The companies below can offer low monthly payments and fit easily into almost every budget. In many instances, no down-payment is needed.

Robert G. Bonillas MD

Robert G. Bonillas MD was inspired to become a doctor as a child. He was raised in a family of mechanics, and discovered natural analogies between his father’s career choice and his own. Just as his father would diagnose and correct an issue with a car, Dr. Bonillas could do the same in medicine. He translated the values instilled by his family into a passion for helping people improve their lives.
