Q. What happens during my cosmetic surgery consultation?
A. The Body Contouring or Facial Sculpting consultation is a vital part of your decision making process. Plan on spending approximately one hour meeting with Dr. Ishoo and his staff. During the consultation, you will be asked to fill out a detailed medical history form. This will give Dr. Ishoo an opportunity to assess if you are a good candidate for the procedure. He will also discuss your past cosmetic experience and current medical status. Dr. Ishoo will meet with you and discuss the procedure in detail. He will review the different options available. This is a good opportunity to ask any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure.
Dr. Ishoo and a Patient Coordinator will examine you. Based on this examination, a recommendation will be made on the best option for you. After the examination, the Patient Coordinator will show you Body Contouring and facial Sculpting before and after pictures and will go over a final quote of your procedure fees, discuss financing options and explain what is needed to schedule your procedure.
