YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION…
More and more people are taking their beauty and well-being into their own hands by opting for a plastic surgery procedure. There are many procedures to those who are looking to regain the beauty of their youth or simply create a figure that they’ve always wanted.
As they take the steps needed to move forward with the procedure, one of the most important factors will be the consultations leading up to the surgery itself. Undergoing any type of surgery or procedure is life-altering. Patients need to be well-prepared for what they will be undertaking as well as the risks involved, recovery time needed and expected results.
As you make the appointment to visit with your physician before your expected procedure, you’ll want to know what to expect and what will be discussed.
- Any pre-existing conditions or previous illnesses or surgeries
- Why you want to undergo the opted surgery?
- What are your expected results?
- Any use of current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drugs.
- Any potential risk factors.
- Your physician may take photographs for your medical record
- Discuss your options and recommend a course of treatment.
- Discuss the use of anesthesia for your procedure.
For the procedure to be successful, it’s imperative you be open and honest with your physician. After your consultation, you can move forward with your surgery knowing that you’re in good hands and you’ll be happy with your results.
