We are happy to announce our re-opening on Monday, May 11, 2020!!!

As always, safety is of the utmost importance for our patients, staff and community. Keeping that in mind, we are adhering to guidelines set forth by the CDC and our city and state health care experts. Although we will be opening in phases, certain requirements must be followed by all patients and staff members to ensure a safe environment for all. These include:

• Wearing a facemask at all times (chances of spread are SIGNIFICANTLY reduced)
• Temperature and COVID-19 symptom checks
• Limiting office visits to the patient only
• Please bring your own pen for use in the office
• Option to wait in your vehicle prior to your appointment

We will continue to offer our virtual consultations!

We appreciate your understanding during this time and are happy to answer any questions about both our own safety protocols as well as CDC guidelines for re-opening. We will continue to adhere to the highest standards, both from a safety and ethics standpoint.

Our patients are our family and we will treat you as such. We look forward to seeing you again soon!!!

Sincerely,

Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte

    • Their temperature will be taken, if greater than 99.5 and any other symptoms, the patient will not receive their injection treatment.
  • Consultations will also complete the questionnaire and should arrive wearing a mask as described above.
  • Injections patients from May 9th to May 15th, (and possibly longer), will only receive treatments outside the facial mask area.
    • Additional injection services may expand after May 15th.
  • All patients will be screened prior to starting surgery.
  • If the patient has a temperature of 99.5 or higher and any other symptoms, they may not be seen.

Dear Patients, Visitors, Family & Friends

Our thoughts are with you and your family during this uncertain time. We’ve learned a lot building our practice, and the most important is focusing on you – the number one priority.⁠
We want to thank our patients for understanding the need to postpone all surgeries until it is safe to proceed. We do this with your safety in mind and to keep surgical facilities and equipment available for those who truly need them. ⁠
However, you can schedule a virtual consultation from the comfort of your home.
Procedures scheduled from March 23rd through April 18th have been postponed. We hope to return after this date, but the truth is that we just don’t know. If you have a procedure scheduled between April 20th and May 4th it will remain on the calendar, but keep in mind it be postponed if conditions deem it necessary. ⁠
Patients who have recently received a procedure and have a concern that needs addressed in a timely fashion will be seen at the office on a case by case basis.⁠
We are also postponing spa services and injectable treatments in order to follow the social distancing recommendations. ⁠
Our office hours are now from 9:00am to 3:00pm. However, you can reach us by phone or email at any time in our profile. If you get our after-hours recording, please leave a message and someone on our staff with get back to you as soon as possible. ⁠⁠
It is our mission at Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte to always lead with integrity, especially during times such as these. Please know that as we work to do what’s right during this crisis, we will work just as hard to accommodate our patients as best as possible when this has passed.⁠
We hope you and your families have a safe and connecting time at home, and we appreciate your continued support to keep your community safe.⁠
Sincerely,⁠
Dr. Adam Augenstein⁠
