What Should Happen at a Consultation with a Plastic Surgeon?
If you are thinking about undergoing any facial cosmetic surgery, it is necessary for you to book an appointment with a professional plastic surgeon prior to embarking on the journey.
There are some things that definitely should occur during your initial visit, and you should be prepared for them.
First and foremost, you should be able to articulate to a facial cosmetic surgeon what you dislike about your face or a particular feature that you would like changed and contoured. Remember, you look at your face in the mirror every day, but it is the doctor’s first time meeting you. A good doctor will take the time to listen to your concerns before giving his or her opinion. Secondly, make sure you know what your goal is. What do you want to achieve with the surgery? It isn’t enough that you dislike an aspect of your appearance. Make sure you’re able to reiterate how you would like to look once the surgery has been completed.
Dr. Torgerson Will Assess Your Face, Skin Type, And Facial Features
Choosing The Best Surgery Option
After this initial conversation, a facial plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Torgerson, will assess your face, skin type, and facial features. Many things are taken into consideration and observed, such as your age, the shape of your face, the size of your features, the thickness of your skin and its elasticity, and your ethnic background.
At this point, the doctor will either agree with you that the surgery you suspect you need is the right choice for you or suggest another option. Perhaps he will propose a non-surgical procedure that would better meet your needs and attain the goal you desire.
Dr. Torgerson’s private surgery centre in downtown Toronto was the first clinic in Canada to introduce the 3D Vectra imaging system. This amazing camera allows a client’s photo to be taken and manipulated so that they can see the results available to them post-op. After several photos have been taken, you and the surgeon can collaborate and agree on the results you desire to achieve.
Be Honest When Filling Out The Medical Questionnaire
Discussing The Risks
Although it’s exciting to see what can be accomplished with cosmetic surgery, a good plastic surgeon will discuss the risks involved. Great advancements have been made in facial cosmetic surgery, and complications are minimal if you choose a reputable clinic and an experienced, certified professional.
It is absolutely essential for anyone considering facial reconstructive surgery to be honest when filling out the medical questionnaire, once surgery has been determined as the best option. There is no advantage in hiding any pertinent information. Dr. Torgerson and his team of professionals desire the best and safest possible outcome for you, so make sure you disclose everything. You will be asked to list the current medications that you are taking, including vitamins; your current medical conditions; what allergies you have; how much alcohol or tobacco you use; what previous surgeries you have had and whether you incurred complications; and what other cosmetic treatments or surgeries you have had in the past.
By the time your consultation has ended, you should feel comfortable with Dr. Torgerson and have a sense of confidence in his expertise. It is important that you feel you have established a relationship with him and feel relaxed in taking the next steps in your transformation’s journey.
