What To Expect From Your Plastic Surgery Consultation
November 14, 2017
The initial consultation is an important step in your plastic surgery journey. It is an opportunity to communicate your goals and concerns, build a rapport with your surgeon, ask questions, and get all the information you need to make informed decisions.
Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir recognize the importance of the consultation, and they make every effort to be accommodating, informative, and friendly. The thought of plastic surgery can be daunting, and they want to make sure that you feel comfortable throughout the entire process.
While each individual consultation will be different, here is a general outline of what you can expect.
Consultations Are Performed By The Doctor
Unlike some cosmetic surgery offices where the consultation is mostly performed by a nurse or assistant, with the doctor coming in for maybe five minutes, Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir place great importance on building a bond with patients right from the beginning. As such, you can be sure that your consultation will be performed by your surgeon.
Our consultations are in-depth and are free for cosmetic procedures. Our surgeons believe in honesty and integrity, and if they do not think you are a good candidate for a procedure, they will tell you and let you know exactly why. If this happens, you will not be out a consultation fee.
In-Depth Cosmetic Surgery Consultations
When you first walk in for your consultation, your surgeon will greet you in the lobby and take you back to their office. There, he will:
- Listen to your concerns and goals
- Let you know about their professional philosophy and how the practice operates
- Answer any questions you have
- Let you know what you can expect from the procedure you’re interested in
After this initial conversation, he will then take you to the exam room and perform an examination to make sure you are healthy and a good candidate. If all goes well, he will detail a surgical plan and inform you about:
- How the procedure is done
- Potential risks and complications
- What to expect during recovery
He will also be sure to show you relevant before and after photos so that you can get an idea of his aesthetic as well as make sure you have realistic expectations.
Clear and Upfront Costs
After your consultation with the doctor, you will be taken to our patient coordinator to discuss costs and financing and to schedule your appointment if you choose to move forward with your surgical plan.
We are always upfront about pricing, and you won’t be hit with hidden fees or costs. We offer financing plans for patients who would prefer to pay over time, and we also accept cash, credit card, and check for those who would rather pay the full costs at once.
We Are Here For You
If you have further questions or concerns after your consultation, you can call our office at any time and your surgeon will speak personally with you. From consultation to surgery to recovery, Dr. Ali or Dr. Tamir will be available day and night, weekday and weekend.
Our ultimate goal is to make sure that you have a positive experience with us, and this personalized attention is just one of the ways that we can ensure you are taken care of.
