Your consultation is exactly what it says… “Your consultation”. When it comes to plastic surgery, every person is different in their hopes, expectations and fears. And so it is essential that every patient has their own personal consultation.
At your consultation, your surgeon will fully discuss with you all aspects of your aesthetic goals. Your particular concerns will also be addressed, in addition to being fully informed about all of your options. Your surgeon gives utmost importance to providing you with the necessary education and information, ensuring that each individual arrives at a decision that is best for them, taking all factors into account.
A relevant physical examination will also be performed alongside the compilation of your medical history. It is important that you answer all questions as accurately as possible. Please feel free to bring along any medical records that may be pertinent to the consultation. Also, it is important to alert your surgeon as to any allergies or health problems you may have, what medicines or vitamins you are taking, and whether or not you smoke.
Working together during your consultation, a customized surgical plan will be developed for you.
Your surgeon will explain in detail the available treatment options, techniques of the proposed surgery, and the risks involved. Informational brochures and fact sheets describing each procedure will be provided for your review. Your surgeon will use his expertise and experience to guide you towards the best options for your particular anatomy, aesthetic goals, and personal circumstances.
After the consultation, you will meet with our specialist nurses. They will assist you with financial issues, scheduling of your appointments, logistics, and any other questions that you may have. Where necessary, they will also assist with the co-ordination of transportation, lodging, and any additional care requirements. This is a service that is particularly beneficial for our out-of-town patients.
Our specialist nurses will also be an invaluable resource for you as you consider your options. As a courtesy to you, they will follow-up with you after your consultation to make sure that all of your questions were answered to your satisfaction.
All patients are encouraged to return for a second consultation with their surgeon, should they desire. This is provided at no additional charge.
Our consultation process is designed with the needs of the patient in mind. Making the leap from thinking about plastic surgery to actually having plastic surgery is actually the hardest part of the whole process. We at Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group are here to provide you with a comfortable, easy and confidential environment in which to do just that.
