The consultation for any plastic surgery is the only opportunity to see if you are a candidate for the treatment you desire. The doctor will want to discuss full medical history and any issues that could cause serious side effects of anesthesia during this visit. Safety has to be the top priority of every surgery, as no physical improvements are worth risking the health of a patient. Another important point that the surgeon is required to discuss is the desires and goals for treatment. The individual should have a realistic idea about the potential surgery results, and understand that it cannot accomplish perfection.
There may be alternative treatment options that are available to avoid the need for an invasive surgery and lengthy recovery. Laser plastic surgery is a great way to treat hair loss, sagging skin, and other conditions if the patient is a suitable candidate. Our breast reduction surgeon in Los Angeles finds that most patients would prefer liposuction over removal of tissue through larger incisions, unless a lift is also needed. Most patients do not realize that there are multiple methods to choose from that provide a very similar improvement. Discuss all options with the surgeon so that you have the most information possible before making a decision about your surgery.
