Surgical Consultation Request
One of the most important factors for successful facial plastic surgery is the relationship between you and the surgeon. An initial consultation provides an opportunity to discuss all that is involved in the desired procedure. During your surgery consultation, options, risks, costs, and recovery times will be discussed with you in detail.
It is advisable that you write questions down before the consultation. It is crucial for you to ask enough questions to find out about all aspects of the proposed surgery.
You may want to ask the following questions:
- Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
- How long will the operation take?
- What is the recovery time?
- What are the risks involved?
- Is post-operative medication necessary?
- What is the cost of the procedure?
It is also a good idea to write down the answers provided so that you can review these carefully. The consultation also provides a chance to experience the personality of the surgeon to see if it is compatible with yours. Some consultations may include computer imaging to show you what the surgery might accomplish. The surgeon can also describe what anesthesia is used for each of the surgeries you may be contemplating and may advise on supportive surgery to enhance the outcome.
You should be prepared to be candid about your medical history, medications, allergies, habits, and background— which could affect the outcome of the surgery.
