Coming in for an In-Person Consultation

Depending on the type of procedure you will be having, you should plan on arriving in San Francisco at least one day prior to your surgery date. You will meet with Dr. Sieber in the office for an in-person consultation before your surgery. At this time, Dr. Sieber will again go over the procedure in detail as well as what to expect during recovery. He will also perform a physical examination, take pre-op photographs, and will take measurements if having any breast-related surgery.

Preparing for Your Surgery

If you are over 50 years old or have any pre-existing medical condition you will be required to have labs drawn and an EKG performed at least 2 weeks before surgery. Dr. Sieber’s office will provide you with the necessary paperwork to have these complete ahead of time.

If you are having breast surgery and are over the age of 40 years old, you will need to have a bilateral mammogram performed within 6 months of your surgery date. If you have a positive family history of breast cancer or carry the breast cancer gene, please discuss this with Dr. Sieber, as he may require you to have a mammogram younger than 40 years old in these situations.

If you are a smoker or use any nicotine products, the sooner you can quit, the better. Nicotine use is associated with delayed healing and can increase your risk of complications, so Dr. Sieber will ask that you cease smoking at least 4 weeks before and after your surgery. It’s always a good idea to eat a healthy diet in preparation for your surgery so that your body has the energy and nutrients it needs to heal as best as possible.

Q: Which airport will I be flying into?

A: Dr. Sieber’s office and adjoining fully accredited surgical facility is within close distance to two international airports. The closest, San Francisco International Airport (SFO), is approximately a 25-40 minute drive depending on traffic. Oakland International Airport (OAK) is a few miles further and located in the East Bay, but is another option to consider, especially if you have a preferred airline that does not fly into SFO. San Jose International is also within driving distance, but is considerably farther and requires about 1.5 hours of driving to get into San Francisco. Lyft, Uber, and taxis are all available on site.

I couldn’t be more pleased and excited about the refresh Dr. Sieber did on my face using a combination of botox and fillers. I had a baby a year ago and my face looked completely deflated. It felt to me that I looked like I had aged 5 years instantly by having a baby over 40. Dr. Sieber looked closely at my face and listened to my desires and fears in terms of the results I was seeking. I really liked that he took a conservative approach and followed up to check in and tweak things once the fillers and I had time to settle in.*

Dr. Sieber is a caring, friendly and talented doctor. I had two long consultations (free of charge) before scheduling my BBL (Brazilian butt lift). The staff and Dr. Sieber made me feel calm and relaxed the day of surgery. The results are amazing. Dr. Sieber understands a woman’s body and totally changed the shape of mine. I could not recommend him highly enough. I now go to him for my Botox and Juvederm.*

Dr. Sieber was fantastic throughout the entire process. From the beginning, he was patient with my questions and never made me feel pressured about making a decision. Once deciding that I was going to move forward with a breast augmentation, he made sure that I understood the process of the procedure and what I could expect post-surgery. I could not be happier with the results!*

Dr. Sieber is the best. I interviewed with numerous doctors. He pays close attention to detail. He called and checked on me and my results on a regular basis. My tummy procedure exceeded my expectation.*

Dr Sieber was very kind, knowledgeable and patient. He was able to answer all of my questions and put me completely at ease during the consultation as well as during the actual procedure. He made sure that I understood each part of the process which went a long way in alleviating my fears…after all, this is my face!*

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
