An essential part of the cosmetic surgery process is the consultation. It is the opportunity to discuss your concerns, learn more about the procedure, and establish rapport with your surgeon. Whether you are consulting with Dr. Russo at Rejuvenis Beauty or a different surgeon, we recommend you ask a few essential questions:
How often do you perform it?
Building trust with your surgeon is key. Do not hesitate to ask questions that can help you gauge their experience. Is he or she board certified? Did the surgeon receive any advanced training related to the procedure that you want? A goal of the consultation is to bolster your confidence and to get an idea of his or her track record with the procedure you are considering. If you have any concerns, this is a good time to discuss them with Dr. Russo at Rejuvenis Beauty or a different surgeon.
What will happen during the procedure?
Gather as much information about the actual procedure as you can. What technique will be used? How long will it take? The more you know about the surgical plan, the better you can understand the potential and limitations of the surgery–and manage expectations.
How will I look? And what is the recovery process?
With the help of technology, surgeons can help patients visualize surgical changes. Can the surgeon produce digital imagery that can help you envision the outcome? Or do they have before and after pictures of past patients who had the same procedure? To help you plan for the post-surgical recovery period, ask what the healing process will be like. Be sure to also ask about the protocol if you were to have a question or concern after the procedure.
Finally, to get the most out of your cosmetic surgery consultation, we recommend that you jot down any questions you have in advance. Doing some quick research online is a great way to get answers to general questions, but information should be confirmed with the surgeon.
