If you walk into a plastic surgeon’s office and they are willing to give you surgery without going through an initial and follow-up consultation, then you know you are in the wrong place. Luckily, you can leave all of your fears of having a bad surgery behind when you come in to see one of our surgeons at Twin City Plastic Surgery. Before we administer any surgery on our patients, we ensure that we meet for at least one consult before surgery. As one of our most popular body procedures, we make sure that all of our liposuction patients meet with us for a consultation before determining whether or not they are suitable candidates. If you are considering getting liposuction done, don’t be intimidated by your initial consult. This article will discuss two things that you can expect from your first appointment. Read on to learn more.
One of the first things that your doctor will want to go over is what kinds of goals you are hoping to achieve from liposuction. Although liposuction can transform the way you look, we want to make sure that you have reasonable expectations— that way you will leave your surgery and head into recovery feeling happy with your results. As we discuss the goals that you have in mind for yourself, we will also discuss the goals that we hope to obtain from surgery.
One of the biggest things that we like to know about our clients is what their lifestyle entails— this includes things like stress levels, health, diet, and exercise. One of the common misconceptions about liposuction is that it is done on people who are obese or excessively overweight. However, liposuction is best done on patients who are at a healthy weight but can’t get rid of stubborn fat even after diet and exercise. During this part of the consultation, we will also conduct a physical examination to make sure that you are healthy enough. If you are a smoker, we will discuss goals for quitting at least two weeks before surgery.
Getting liposuction is a great way to not only transform your physique but your self-esteem as well. If you would like to learn more about liposuction or to schedule a consultation, contact Twin City Plastic Surgery today!
