I heard Harlem Hospital can get you on a payment agreement if you qualify. Anyone can tell me anything about it?

Has anyone had a consultation at NYEE since Dr. Xipoleas left?

These consultation fees at this places are ridiculous. Jacobi Hospital wants $195 (not applied to the cost of the surgery), Harlem Hospital wants $375 (not applied to the cost of the surgery) and Mt. Sinai Hospital consultation fee is $300 (and again not applied to the cost of the surgery).

Has anyone had a tt and lipo done at any of these places? If so, how was the consultation process and how long did it take to scheduled for your procedure?

I had a consultation at Jacobi hospital. I paid the 195$ thinking I was going in the right direction. Only to be turned down n told I need to lose weight first. I was disappointed n out of 200$ .. Never again Only free consults for me. Cause when I shopping around you shouldn't have to pay. My opinion .

i agree with you, why should you have to pay 200 and then hear you have to loose weight, didn't the dr. see that before they took your money..... steupssssssssssss

I had my tummy tuck at Jacobi 5 yrs ago. It was 1900 then now I think it's $4500. It's perfect my friend paid $15,000. Mine is way better

Actually they don't. You make an appointment. I have another friend who was told the same. The reason makes perfect sense, if you are going to spend thousands of dollars for a tummy tuck you want optimal results. If you're 30 or 40lbs overweight you will not get the desired look. People have insisted and had it done even though they were advised to lose weight, and they are not happy. They don't understand why they still have stomach fat. The cut you from the belly button area and pull down, there is only so much fat they can remove

Ok great I have a consult there on Thursday, hopefully if this storm doesn't prevent the appt from being cancelled.

@Beth1976 Will I see Dr. Xipoleas again before my surgery? I ask this because I just remembered that the receptionist didn't schedule another appointment with me to see him before my surgery date.

Hi I am new to the forum and am just reading this today. I went to a private plastic surgeon who quoted me a price of $11,000 for a tt. Needless to say I left feeling pretty sad. I was told by a friend to consider nyee but she didn't know anyone who actually done their surgery here. My question to you is are you still happy with your results? And if so which office do I call to make arraignments for a consult. I am looking to do it first week in April . Thank you.

Yes it was. And my stomach is still flat as a board lol. I had 2 sections and when I pregnant the 2nd time was on steroids I gained over 100lbs. I had an apron it was horrible. I had to buy clothes 2 sizes larger to accommodate that blob lol. My girlfriend paid $16,000 had it 2 yrs ago and you would never know she had it done. Even in the beginning it wasn't flat and she was not overweight. Had twins and lost the elasticity in her stomach muscles

I believe that they are a part of Lenox hill I had my breast consult there. My co worker had a face lift and tummy tuck. It came out beautiful. I had my TT in 2008 in Jacobi. Best thing I ever did in my life!

Oh my tummy tuck was at Jacobi and it came out better than people who spent thousands of dollars !
