Your surgery, whatever one you have, is about more than just the day of surgery. Although your operation is the largest aspect of the entire process, there are also stages such as your initial consultation and even your follow-up appointment. To help you know more about what you can expect going into this process, we have created a brief guide.
As the first step in the surgical process, you will need to come into our Twin City Plastic Surgery office for a consultation. During this appointment, one of our doctors will meet with you to discuss your goals and desires from surgery. Additionally, they may also perform a brief physical examination to help you decide what surgical option is best for you. If you aren’t sure what kinds of results you want, we have a large variety of past patients’ before and after photos for you to look at to help you narrow down what you want.
Patient Care Coordinator Meeting
After your initial physical consultation, you will meet with our patient care coordinator to go over the cost of the procedures and discuss the payment methods that we offer our patients which include cash, credit cards, check, and special financing.
Follow Up Appointment
Depending on the type of surgery you are having, we may schedule your follow-up appointment just a day after surgery or all the way up to a week afterward. This meeting is to ensure that there aren’t any complications going on and that you are healing correctly. In some instances, stitches will be taken out, but that varies from surgery to surgery and patient to patient.
Every surgery is vastly different in regards to how the surgery is performed and the recovery time involved. However, with all procedures that we offer at our office, you can expect to have a physician consultation and a follow-up appointment.
