The first step in any plastic surgery procedure is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Brothers. The consultation gives you an opportunity to explore all of your treatment options in order to determine the procedure that most aligns with your cosmetic goals and personal needs. It is also a great opportunity to talk with a medical professional about how to prepare for treatment and what to expect after treatment. Your consultation is an important part of the treatment process, and we want to make sure that each patient gets the most out of this interaction. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to prepare for this valuable time with Dr. Brothers. Here is our tips for preparing for your surgical consultation.
Preparing for Your Consultation
We recommend that patients educate themselves as much as possible before coming in for their consultation. This includes researching different treatments and cosmetic techniques so that you will be prepared to discuss your desires and the details of your treatment with Dr. Brothers. If you already know what procedure you would like to have done, it can be greatly beneficial to research it before your consultation.
The Day of Your Consultation
Like most healthcare providers, we require basic paperwork that details your personal information and medical history. By printing this paperwork out from our website and completing it beforehand, you can save time at your appointment. Most plastic surgeries require patients to rest for a few days following their treatment. During this time, patients often have a close friend or family member helping them out around the home. Bringing this individual to your consultation can help them prepare for your treatment and aid you in your recovery, which we strongly encourage.
During Your Consultation
Your consultation is the best time to ask any questions you have regarding your surgery. If you are concerned about preparation, the operation, or side effects and results, this is your chance to get the information you need. During this time, we will also review your medical history to ensure you are a good fit for your desired treatment. By the end of your consultation, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment and schedule your procedure at your convenience.
