PoliciesOur goal with these policies is to stress the importance of our schedule and protect our staff as well as clients that rely on the accuracy of the schedule.
A deposit of $500 will be taken at the time you schedule your procedure. Once you agree to our scheduling policies we can put you in our schedule. This will lock in your rate for up to 3 months in which time you may schedule you procedure. The deposit is partially refundable, see cancellation policies below.
A deposit of $100 will be taken at the time that you schedule your first treatment. Once you agree to our scheduling policies we can put you in our schedule. The balance must be paid in full to proceed with the treatment. If a series is purchased, the entire series cost must be paid in full before the first treatment. Once the series is paid in full we can reserve dates and times for your remaining treatments. If the entire series cost is not paid in full, the regular price per treatment price will apply.
Payment in Full
The balance of the procedure must be paid in full 7 days prior to the procedure date. We require this because many people have limits on their credit or debt card. If you pay early, this will eliminate the chance of payment issues the day of the procedure which may delay or require cancellation of your procedure (this would be a huge inconvenience if you flew across the country for your procedure and could not pay when you got here). All checks must clear prior to the procedure taking place.
In the event that you are 25 minutes or more late for your appointment, MyShape Lipo reserves the right to enforce any of the following options:
- Reschedule your appointment for another day, requiring a $250 rescheduling fee.
- If rescheduling your appointment isn’t an option, we can cancel your appointment offering you a refund, minus the forfeited $500 deposit.
- Move your appointment to later in the day, if our schedule allows for another appointment.
In the event that you do not show up for your appointment or arrive for your appointment and decide that you do not want to move forward with the procedure, we will offer a refund of the monies paid, minus the $500 deposit.
In the event that you cancel your procedure within 1 week of the procedure date, you will forfeit your $500 deposit and the remainder will be reimbursed. You will receive a $250 refund of your deposit if you cancel more than 1 week before your appointment or if you do not have an appointment date set. Please note that once the deposit has been placed you are subject to the cancellation policy regardless whether you have selected an appointment date. All other funds will be returned upon cancellation once you have filled out a Refund Request Form. In order to be eligible for the $250 partial deposit refund, the Refund Request Form must be signed, dated and received more than 1 week before the procedure date. If it is received with in a week of the scheduled procedure date or after the procedure date the entire $500 deposit is forfeited. We understand that this is a big decision and you may change your mind about the procedure, but please respect our schedule by giving us advanced notice. Failure to show up for your appointment (being 25 minutes or more late for your appointment without communicating with our staff) will result in forfeiting your $500 deposit.
In the event that you cancel your treatment within 1 week of the first treatment date, you will forfeit $50 of your deposit and the remainder will be reimbursed. Please note that once the deposit has been placed you are subject to the cancellation policy regardless whether you have selected an appointment date. All other funds will be returned upon cancellation once you have filled out a Refund Request Form.
If you wish to cancel your future treatments while in the middle of a treatment series, the number of treatments already received at the current price per treatment rate will be deducted from the total series amount originally paid.
In the event that you must reschedule your appointment within 1 week of your procedure date, there will be a $250 rescheduling fee.
The national average for liposuction revisions is approximately 20%. However, at MyShape Lipo our revision rate is less than 0.5%. We do our best to get it right the first time so that you won't need to have it done again. A revision is intended to fix a small irregularity in an isolated area. After any liposuction procedure, it should be expected that there will be minor irregularities and the hope is that you are the only one that will notice the issue. Anytime a revision is completed there is risk involved of potentially making the problem worse. Trying to fix very minor issues could potentially lead to more problems or worse results.
Anytime you have liposuction there will be scar tissue in the area treated. This scar tissue is very tough and has bulk to itself. The scar tissue itself is commonly the cause of these irregularities or fullness. To remove the scar tissue may only be a temporary fix, because the scar tissue will come back as you heal. If for example, you have an area that is slightly raised in comparison to the surrounding areas. It is possible that we go in and take out too much causing a "divot" where you once had a bulge. The presence of scar tissue can make it very difficult to make "fine detail" changes. When considering a revision it's important to consider the risk factors vs. the potential benefit. Remember that perfection is unattainable and the goal of liposuction is to be better than when you started.
We remove as much fat as we want the first time so it should not be necessary to treat a given area twice for fat reduction. It's important to leave a thin layer of fat under the skin to get the best cosmetic results and the smoothest skin. Taking out too much fat will leave the skin with a "rippled" look and significantly increase the chance of defects.
Cost: A minimum charge of $500 plus additional fees assessed on an individual basis. Additional fees will be determined based on amount of work required.
If a check gets returned for insufficient funds there will be a $25.00 insufficient funds fee. While it is very rare, in the event that you decide to cease treatment in an area to be treated after the numbing process in that area has begun, please note that you will not be entitled to a refund for the unfinished area.
