Your consultation with Dr. Farris is the perfect opportunity to get answers to the questions that have been on your mind. While the internet is infinite in the amount of information it has, there’s really no substitute for the expertise and guidance of a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Farris takes all the time you need to make sure you have answers.
Below are five questions that may help you get the conversation going in the consultation. Of course, as always we encourage you to write down any questions you have and ask them of Dr. Farris.
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
You may have a certain procedure in mind that you’ve spent quite a lot of time thinking about and researching. So the first thing to do is ask Dr. Farris whether you are actually a good candidate for this procedure. You very well may be, or there may be alternatives that you should consider. It’s important to keep an open mind and learn about all of the choices in front of you so that you will be really happy with your results.
What are the pros and cons, and potential risks of the procedure?
We know better than most that a new cosmetic procedure can feel really exciting! Nonetheless, you need to be fully informed of everything there is to know so that you can make a rational decision about whether to proceed. Dr. Farris will discuss with you not only the benefits, but also any potential risks or drawbacks that you should know about, and what he does to prevent them.
What results should I reasonably expect?
Part of choosing a cosmetic procedure includes knowing what you can realistically expect, and what would be unrealistic to expect. Dr. Farris can help you do this by showing you before and after photos of patients who have received the same procedure. He will also discuss with you what you are envisioning and make sure those are outcomes that can be achieved.
What should I plan for in terms of downtime and recovery?
Electing a cosmetic procedure also means electing a brief recovery afterward. During this time, you’ll need to take time off from work, take time off from strenuous exercise, get help with errands and chores, get help with childcare, and generally be ready to rest and relax. When you follow all of the aftercare instructions carefully, you will be safeguarding your results.
How long will the results last?
When you elect a certain plastic surgery, you should make sure that the results align with what you expect. That includes learning about the longevity of those results. Generally speaking, plastic surgery achieves results that last many, many years, especially if you work to maintain a stable body weight, protect your skin from the sun, and lead a healthy lifestyle.
