About Us/Referring Mds
When you arrive at the office, typically the first contact is with Tina or Ashley. They will organize your cosmetic consultation appointments and follow-ups. At the time of the consultation, they will assist with the consultation and take care of scheduling any surgical procedures.
We offer Registered nursing support at our office as well as at the private surgical facility, Victoria Surgery. Mary, our registered nurse, will provide preoperative and postoperative information, answer questions, remove sutures, perform dressing changes and assist Dr. Taylor during preoperative and postoperative examinations.
For more extensive procedures such as abdominoplasty, brachioplasty (arm lift) and belt lipectomy (lower body lift), Mary along with the other postoperative care nurses at Victoria Surgery, will provide care in the recovery room and any necessary at home postoperative visits.
The Oak Bay office is primarily used for initial cosmetic and reconstructive consultations and minor procedures such as cosmetic facial mole excision and scar revision.
Procedures requiring general anesthetic such as liposuction, breast augmentation, and abdominoplasty take place at Victoria Surgery, a private plastic surgical center established in 1966.
