One must consider two or more plastic surgeons before making his final decision regarding any plastic surgery. You can research the relevant plastic surgery on the internet but it can’t replace the necessity of a personalized consultation with the surgeon. The surgeon would explain all the queries that you have in your mind and help you in making the right decision.
If you have booked a consultation with a plastic surgeon, we can help you make the most out of it. You should ask all the questions and share all your concerns related to the surgery with your surgeon. Even if you read the details online, we recommend you ask the surgeon directly for accurate details.
What happens during Consultation?
In an initial consultation, your doctor is likely to ask a lot of questions from you to examine your general health, both physical and mental. You are supposed to share your medical history with the surgeon. Tell him if you had undergone any surgery before and how was your experience. Your surgeon must know if your body is allergic to anything. You will be asked about any medications you are taking.
Some medicines can intervene with the healing process after surgery, so you should not skip any medication even if you are taking vitamin tablets. Your medications might be affecting your blood pressure that can create problems during or after the surgery. Your surgeon might ask you to stop taking blood-thinning medicines like aspirin for at least 2 weeks before the surgery. You will be prescribed alternative medications for that, but what’s important is that you share it with your doctor.
It is your right to ask the surgeon about his certifications and experience in the respective plastic surgery. You should ask him if he’s a board-certified surgeon or not. Ask him to show you before & after photos that show the results from previous cases he has attended.
