Over six million Americans undergo cosmetic procedures every year. Finding the right cosmetic surgeon will make a difference in how satisfied you are with the results of your cosmetic procedures. The first step is to do some research in order to find the right cosmetic surgeon or aesthetician for you.
Next, it’s time to make your first appointment, typically a consultation. This purpose of this initial consultation is to evaluate your needs, asses your health, and determine which cosmetic procedure is right for you. This visit will also help to prepare you for the procedure, making sure that you know what to expect and understand the entire process.
It is also standard procedure for the physician to talk to you about your medical history. The results of your cosmetic procedure and your healing process, as well as potential complications can be effected by your current and past health condition. From here, the surgeon will move into a more specific discussion, depending on the procedure you will have.
Once the surgeon clears you to go ahead with the cosmetic procedure, the physician or aesthetician will take pictures of the treatment area, from multiple angles. These will be your “before” pictures and will be used to show the success of your treatment and make it easier to see exactly how your body has changed. In some cases, the doctor will use digital technology in order to show you how the changes will look with the measurements that they have made.
At the end of the consultation schedule your appointment for the cosmetic procedure. Use the time you have until your appointment to make the proper preparations to ensure you are ready to have the cosmetic procedure, and dream about your positive results!
