To establish trust
THE FIRST CONSULTATIONThe quality of the relationship built up with the surgeon is essential. In addition to being highly skilled at his or her job, the aesthetic surgeon needs to have a real ability to listen to their patients. This will allow him or her to talk to the patient and decide on the foundations for mutual trust which are essential to the success of any aesthetic surgical operation.
The first consultation will help you to get a better understanding of your expectations and assess how realistic they might be. In some cases it may be better not to have the surgery and use alternative treatments.
It will then be a matter of you and your aesthetic surgeon examining the cause and severity of the imperfection which has brought you here and to look at the most effective way of correcting it. There are often a number of surgical techniques which can be used to solve a given problem and sometimes less invasive methods e.g. aesthetic medicine can help to avoid or postpone surgery.
Once the indication has been established, the surgeon will explain all the details of the operation to you together with the results that can be expected. Wherever possible, predictions on the latest result simulation software can also be shown and discussed.
