In order to provide the best possible service to our patients, we request that you arrive in plenty of time for your appointment. We suggest that you arrive 15 minutes early for a “New” patient visit (to allow time to complete registration paperwork), and 10 minutes early for all other visits. Please note, there will be a $50 charge for no-shows and appointments cancelled less than 24 hours prior to appointment date and time. Please cancel at least 48 hours prior to day of appointment. Once rescheduled is allowed without penalty.
All fees for cosmetic surgery are payable in advance by cash, personal check, or credit card. We do accept VISA, MasterCard, AMEX and CareCredit for your convenience. CareCredit is subject to a 4% convenience fee. There is a $30 fee assessed to all returned checks.

cost of a surgery:
(1) Surgeons professional fee,
(2) the surgery center fee [if applicable],
(3) the anesthesiologist’s fee [if applicable],
(4) laboratory fees [for COVID-19 testing and/or required blood and EKG tests before surgery],
(5) special services, which are rarely indicated [i.e., pathology and/or radiology], and
(6) special supplies [i.e., implants, implantable devices, injectables].
DallasFaceDoc, PLLC is a fee-for-service facility. We do not process or submit insurance claims.
Our policy on insurance company billing and payment are summarized
• Our office will not bill insurance for any cosmetic procedure performed.
• The patient is ultimately responsible for all professional services
performed. Please see Irrevocable Non-Assignment Consent for further information.
Initial Consultation Fee
For a first-time cosmetic surgery consultation with Dr. Saman, the fee is $200 and is collected when the appointment is scheduled. If patients schedule surgery within 60 days of their consultation, the entire $200 consultation charge will be applied toward the surgical fee. Fee for virtual consultations is $100.
First-time patients will also be required to place a scheduling deposit when making appointments with our injection specialists and/or medical aesthetician. In the event that you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please contact us to cancel within two (2) business days prior to your scheduled appointment in order to receive a refund of your deposit. Otherwise, your deposit will be donate toward Dr. Saman's medical missions and philanthropic projects.
Credit Card Authorization
For the convenience of our patients, product purchases and payment for services may be facilitated over the telephone. You have the option of using our secure payment processing on our website DallasFaceDoc.com under [Pay Online] if you prefer. Charges for these transactions will be made to the credit card provided by the patient. You will be advised of the amount charged at the time of your purchase; however, please understand that there may be additional fees for packaging, handling, shipping or postage.
Availability for appointments is very competitive. In the event that you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please contact us to cancel within two (2) business days prior to your scheduled appointment. Any less notice will result in a loss of your scheduling deposit.
A consultation with Dr. Saman is required before surgery can be scheduled. There are no exceptions to this rule. All fee quotes are valid for two (2) months from the date of the initial consultation.
It is important to understand that there will likely be certain additional costs (i.e., prescription medications, outside laboratory tests, postoperative supplies and materials), which are not included in the surgical fee.
A surgical deposit is required before surgery can be finalized and placed on the surgery calendar. This fee is refundable if surgery is cancelled thirty (30) days or more from scheduled day of surgery. If surgery is scheduled within 30 days of deposit, deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE. SURGICAL DATE MAY BE CHANGED ONLY ONCE WITHOUT PENTALY.
The protocol for the deposit is as follows:
• If the surgery cost is less than $500, the surgical deposit is the actual amount of the surgery.
• If the surgery fee is between $500 and $5000, then the surgery deposit is $500.
• For surgery fee greater than $5000, deposit amount is $2000.
The remaining balance must be paid in full no later than fourteen (14) days from time of surgery.
As with all surgical procedures, cosmetic surgery involves certain risks, limitations, and the possibility of complications. We seek to obtain the best possible surgical result, but there is no absolute guarantee or warranty as to the final result that may be achieved. Surgical fees are paid for the performance of surgery and not for the realization of an exact anticipated result. Although unusual, revisionary surgery is sometimes necessary. In our experience, this occurs in less than 5% of patients. If it is determined that if revision surgery is necessary within the first year following the original surgery, the following policies will apply:
(a) each case is individualized to decide if any additional professional fees are appropriate,
(b) patients will be fully responsible for all “support costs” (operating room facilities, anesthesiologist, laboratory fees, pathology fees, implants, supplies, etc.).
When requesting appointment using our Appointment Request page , please let us know 1) Reason for consultation, 2) Type of consultation (virtual or in-person) and 3) Your DOB. This information can be entered in the NOTES section. We are unable to process your request without this information. Thank you
