About Your Visit


  • Office Hours:

    The Gardens Cosmetic Center is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM

    Day of Consultation

    At the time of your consultation. our professional and caring staff will check you in with the assistance of  one of our patient care coordinators.  Our coordinators serve as the main liaison between you and your surgeon and play a vital role in communication and organizing all the fine details if you choose to have surgery and the center.

    On the day of your consultation, expect to spend 30-60 minutes with the doctor to assess you specific issues, perform a comprehensive physical exam, perform photography and establish a rapport which is crucial for anyone who is seeking cosmetic surgery.  In order to make the right decision, you need to feel comfortable knowing that your surgeon has the experience, technical skills, artistry and compassion necessary to produce the results you desire.

    All consultations for cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures are free of charge.  The decision to pursue surgery should be free of any pressure.  After your visit, our patient care coordinator will be in touch with you with a formal consultation packet and summary.

    At times, results can be better explained by reviewing before and after photographs and using computer morphing to predict what anticipated results we can achieve.  Dr. Dedo and Dr. Lipan determine this on a patient by patient basis.

    Our operative suite is regulated by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) agency.  For decades, accreditation has been the highest form of public recognition a health care organization could receive for the quality of care it provides.  We most recently received a 3 year accreditation after a thorough review process.  This is the longest approval the AAAHC gives. Our priority is your safety.

    Dr. Dedo maintains surgical privileges at Good Samaritan Medical Center and St Mary’s Medical Center.

    Dr. Lipan maintains surgical privileges at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.
