Undergoing a cosmetic procedure is not something you should decide on a whim. It must be well-thought-out. Once you are sure that it is something you are ready to commit to, making a decision to visit our experienced Palm Beach plastic surgeon is the next thing to do.
Our surgeon is more than happy to provide you with a consultation to help you understand the procedure better and to make sure that you are a good fit. During the consultation, there are some important questions you may want to ask our plastic surgeon:
1. What Type of Anesthesia Will Be Used?
There are different types of anesthesia, and it is important to ask which one the plastic surgeon will be using on you. If you are allergic to a certain type, make sure to mention that to avoid complications and so that the surgeon can recommend a better and safer alternative.
2. What Should I Expect During Recovery?
Recovery times vary based on the type of procedure, the anesthesia used, and more. It is important to ask this question so that you can make the necessary arrangements at work or at home. Ask whether there are certain tasks that you are not allowed to do during recovery so you can have someone around to do them for you until you are capable again.
3. What Aftercare Do You Provide?
Our team will make sure to detail the aftercare that comes with the procedure you have received. You should ask this so you will know who to call when you need advice or care should issues arise.
4. What are the Possible Side Effects or Complications?
Ask about potential risks, complications, or side effects that could come with the procedure. This will ensure you have all the information you need to make a decision.
Allowing our Palm Beach plastic surgeon to explain the surgery, including aftercare and expected results, will help you make a decision you can be happy with and increase your chances for a successful surgery.
