Three questions with Lilian Azih, founder of Nuvueu Cosmetic Surgery And Aesthetics Center.
What do you want the community to know? Are there ways for the community to help you and other local businesses to prosper?
As a plastic surgeon with a new 1-year old business Nuvueu Cosmetic Surgery And Aesthetics Center, in Westport, CT we were unable to see patients since March secondary to COVID. We did continue to do virtual online consults for our patients which they really appreciated. We are re-opening on July 1st for in-office consultation and procedures with the highest level of safety for our patients which include touchless temperature checks, limiting the number of patients, using PPE, and screening each patient prior to entry. We feel this will give our patients the best protection and safest visit with us. The community can help small businesses like ours by paying us a visit virtually or in-person for consultations, purchasing gift certificates, and skincare products via our website, giving us reviews on google, our website, and social media.
Are you offering any new products or ways for customers to purchase your products or services that are popular during this crisis?
Yes. We are offering our Nuvueu lipo sculpting which does not require general anesthesia for patients who have tried diet and exercise but have some troublesome areas that are not responsive to diet and exercise. The procedure takes 1-2 hours depending on the area treated and patients go home the same day with anticipated 2-3 days off work. We melt and permanently remove the fat and then tighten the skin at the same time. This is a very popular treatment here in town as there is little downtime with amazing life-changing results.
We have also instituted online purchases of our skincare products directly from our website with contactless front door delivery to our patients which has helped our patients continue to look their best even in the time of uncertainty.
Please share the ways your business is adapting to keep your customers and employees safe in addition to the standard guidelines
To ensure the safety of all our patients and employees, we have delayed opening until July 1st. We have instituted new policies for our clients and staff which include coming alone to appointments, wearing a mask covering nose and mouth, our staff wear masks and face shields the entire time for our clients' protection. Our patients’ masks are only removed once in the procedure room before their treatment. We no longer allow waiting room gatherings, so patients wait in their car and text our office once they arrive and stay in their cars until told to come inside to limit and adhere to social distancing. All patients undergoing surgery get tested for COVID prior to surgery. All patients prior to entering our office are screened with a touchless temperature device and asked questions which include the presence of fever >100.4, new cough, new shortness of breath, new sore throat, body aches, and whether they reside with someone positive for COVID-19 or hospitalized with it. If any of those questions are positive, we would reschedule their appointment. This is to ensure the safety of all our patients and staff.
In addition, we thoroughly disinfect and use UV light to sterilize the rooms after each patient. With these measures strictly adhered to, we find our patients feel comfortable knowing their safety is our key priority throughout their visit.
