Who is a good candidate for cosmetic surgery with Dr. Jugenburg?

Although we get incoming requests for a consultation from many potential patients, we are not able to offer our services to all.  Please review the following document to ensure you are eligible for a consultation

The following are conditions we do not accept:

  • Revisions and touch ups of previous work done elsewhere
    • If you had surgery/treatment done by another surgeon and are hoping we can fix your problem
    • If you had previous surgery on a body┬ápart and would like additional surgery (ex had tummy liposuction and now want a tummy tuck, or had breast implants and now want a breast lift)
  • Diabetes
    • If you require Insulin to manage your diabetes, we are unable to perform cosmetic surgery on you in our outpatient facility
    • You will be referred to our hospital based colleague
  • Obesity
    • If your Body Mass Index (BMI) is over 30, you will need to lose weight first before undergoing surgery
    • Please note that even with BMI under 30, Dr. Jugenburg may require you to lose additional weight before agreeing to perform your surgery
    • Please see the chart below to determine your BMI
  • Immune suppression
    • If you are taking immunosuppression medication (ex autoimmune disorders requiring immunosuppression), you are at increased risk of infection after surgery and are not eligible for surgery at our clinic.
    • Patients with severe Arthritis, Crohn’s, or previous transplant patients
  • Malignant Hyperthermia
    • If you have Malignant Hyperthermia, you cannot have your surgery performed at our private facility
  • Overall good health
    • If you have or have had any medical conditions requiring you to see a medical specialist (not just your family doctor), you will likely require a letter from such a specialist clearing your for surgery and/or provide us with post-surgery care recommendations
