What to Expect During a Consultation
When you are considering plastic surgery, you may be searching out for as much information as you can find. The best way to be informed about your procedure and how it can impact you is to schedule a consultation with your plastic surgeon. The first consultation may be a bit scary and you don’t know what to expect. At ARC Plastic Surgery, we are happy to be completely open, honest, and transparent in the plastic surgery process. Here is what you can expect during a consultation.
When you schedule your consultation, you will first meet the administrative team. These are the individuals who help coordinate and schedule your surgery. They can assist you with any paperwork or information that must be collected prior to your procedure. You will then meet the surgeon who will be performing your procedure.
Discuss Your Goals
The plastic surgeon will want to know your ideal finished result. Then they will discuss the circumstances and realistic results you can expect depending on the procedure to be completed. They will ask you questions about certain risk factors for plastic surgery, discuss the procedure at length, and inform you about the recovery process.
This is the ideal time for you to ask questions and discuss your concerns about the procedure. Prior to your consultation, write down your questions. It is easy to forget what you were going to ask when you are in the office. If any questions arise after your consultation, most doctors have ways to either call or e-mail to discuss any further issues.
Schedule the Next Step
If you have chosen this plastic surgeon for your procedure, the next step would be to call the office and schedule your next appointment. The process may differ for each procedure.
