We believe and respect that you have many choices. Here at Sepehr Egrari MD FACS PC Plastic Surgery Center, we do everything in our power to obtain your trust and to show you what excellence is all about.
Phone Call/ Email
Most patients in our practice are referred by others, and first approach us via telephone and email. Our Patient Care Coordinators will do everything in their power to inform you about your selected procedures. They will obtain identifying data from you and send information by mail or follow up by email. If you do not schedule your consultation, they will follow up with you to assure all your questions have been answered.
In our practice, “no” means no. If you tell us not to follow up, we will never call you again.
When you first visit our office, you will find that you are in a special place. You will be met with warmth and serious regard. You will meet our coordinators and will fill out some initial, brief paperwork. You will then meet Dr. Egrari.
Dr. Egrari is a plastic surgeon in Seattle who believes in detailed personal consultations. His trademarks are his ability to listen to your desires and to then recommend the appropriate procedures. He will also discuss the benefits and limitations of each. You can ask all your questions and you will also be able to observe a state-of-the-art audio-visual presentation of digital images of patients who have had similar procedures.
Our nursing staff will prepare you for your examination. At this phase, you will have a detailed and focused physical examination, after which Dr. Egrari will give you his recommendations. Our patients are always examined in the presence of our nursing staff.
Our consultation fee is $75, which is credited toward your scheduled service or procedure. We request that patients provide 48 hours’ notice to avoid a cancellation fee.

Financial Obligation and Scheduling
Our Patient Care Coordinators will further discuss with you your financial questions. They will go over scheduling and will give you a very detailed explanation of your financial obligations. You will receive a copy of an estimate of our fees.
Our Patient Care Coordinators are not trained to be salespersons. We understand your desires, we know your choices, and we obtain your trust through the excellence of Dr. Egrari’s work.
You are encouraged to be scrutinizing in your quest for beauty. We encourage seeking out other professional opinions. Our Patient Care Coordinators have a list of trusted, Board Certified surgeons whom you may wish to visit. Many of our patients come back for second or even third consultations to truly obtain all the information they need. Each time you meet with us, you will be greeted with warmth and genuine respect.
Our specialized pre-operative nurses are here to teach safety and convenience throughout your journey. Along with your pre-operative instructions, you will receive an individualized pre-operative booklet that caters to your specific procedure and medical history. Your pre-op meeting spans over one hour and is one of the most important meetings of your journey. You will meet with Dr. Egrari again for a detailed discussion of the logistics of the operation. He will discuss with you his plans and will go over a detailed consent, carefully covering the risks of the operation. Here we believe that an informed patient is a secure, happy and satisfied patient.
At the pre-op meeting, you will also receive all of your prescriptions for the convenience and assurance of having them filled prior to the operation. You will meet with our scheduling coordinators to receive final instructions, directions, and pre-operative supplements. At this time, you will also meet with our financial coordinator to finalize your surgical fee(s).
It is our mission to assure that when you leave the pre-operative meeting, you will know that your safety concerns are our utmost priority — throughout the entire pre-operative, operative and post-operative processes.
This is an important and exciting day! You will be instructed to show up at a designated time. Upon your arrival, you will be led through a private entry into our pre-operative holding area, where you will meet our fully qualified nursing staff. You will also have the opportunity to meet with our board-certified anesthesiologists and ask all pertinent questions.
One of the most important aspects of your operative planning is the marking. Dr. Egrari will use special pens to detail the plan of the procedure. You will then be escorted to the operating room. Here you will begin your surgery in the comfort of our warm, comfortable surgical bed. Professionalism and regard for your safety are always at the top of our list.
Once your operation is complete, you will be taken to one of our well-equipped recovery rooms. All post-operative nurses are trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support. Most patients stay in the recovery room for 1-2 hours. You will be discharged home at the end of that time. Occasionally, large-scale procedures will require an overnight stay—for which we suggest private nursing at a choice of facilities near our office.
Dr. Egrari telephones all patients on the evening of their operation.
All patients will have a quick post-operative visit the day after surgery. The next visit depends on the type of surgery; the most common scenarios are: 7-10 days, one month, three months, and one year.
We are always here to address your concerns. Feel free to contact us.
