How do I prepare for surgery?

Dr. Lacombe will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding certain vitamins and medications. Carefully following these instructions will help your surgery go smoothly. While you’re making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery.

Where will my surgery be performed?

All surgical procedures are performed in Dr. Lacombe’s certified, office-based surgical suite. Non-surgical procedures are performed in our office-based procedure room in Santa Rosa. All facial plastic surgery procedures are done on an outpatient basis. If you live more than 30 minutes away from the office, Dr. Lacombe requests that you stay locally after a surgical procedure.

What is the difference between local and general anesthesia?

With local anesthesia, you’ll usually be lightly sedated, while the treatment area and the surrounding area will be numbed. Under local anesthesia, you’ll be awake, but relaxed and insensitive to pain. With general anesthesia, you’ll sleep through the operation and will breathe on your own.

Will insurance cover my procedure?

Dr. Lacombe does not take insurance.

People are always asking me how old I am! First of all, I’m not going to answer that question… well at least not on the radio. But I will tell you, the other day, I was doing the weather on TV, and one of the camera crew snapped a candid photo of me. Why do I want to thank Dr. Victor Lacombe? It’s because of that photo! When I saw it, I thought, I look the way I feel ~refreshed! And it’s been over a year since I first had a little “something something” done! Thank you Dr. Lacombe! This photo showed me how others see me.
