Expectations for your Plastic Surgery Consultation

Plastic surgery consultation should be relaxed. It is a chance to discuss your hopes and expectations with a qualified plastic surgeon, and they can, in turn, make recommendations and suggestions. Your plastic surgery consultation should include discussion of:

  • Your medical history – it is important to be as honest as possible to ensure your own safety
  • What you want to change about your body and why you want to change it
  • Your goals in terms of how you want to look and specific changes you hope to see
  • How you feel about your body now and your hopes for how the surgery will affect this
  • The results you expect from the procedures you are considering
  • The specific procedure and what is involved in it – this may include discussion of anaesthesia, incisions, recovery times and aftercare
  • Risks and complications that can occur from your chosen procedures
  • Recommendations of alternative procedures and options
  • Referral to mental health services or counselling if required

Your consultation is an opportunity to discuss your options and also any fears or concerns. Your plastic surgeon should be happy to discuss possible results and may be able to provide before and after photographs of similar work so you have an understanding of the possible results. It is important to note that the image you have in your head may not be exactly replicable. However, a good plastic surgeon will do all they can to deliver the results you are looking for.
