We run into many patients who are excited to learn more about their plastic surgery options but also scared about getting a consultation. But knowing what you can expect from a plastic surgery consultation will alleviate those fears! In this article, we are going to talk about what to expect from a plastic surgery consultation and how to best prepare.

Doctor Evaluation

Your plastic surgery consultation is a time for your plastic surgeon to evaluate your situation and provide recommendations. Your doctor will take a look at your medical history, and any pre-existing risk factors that may exist. They will also take photos of your face and discuss potential outcomes of various treatments.

Come Prepared

You should also come to your consultation prepared to discuss your situation and your cosmetic goals. In particular, be prepared to discuss:

  • Any current drugs you are taking
  • Any allergies you might have
  • Any previous surgeries you’ve had
  • What you’d like to accomplish from your procedure

Ask Questions

Your consultation is a great time to ask any questions you might have about your situation, the procedure you’re considering, and anything else you can think of. Your plastic surgeon will be happy to answer all of your questions during the consultation.
