Liposuction cosmetic surgery is an effective body contouring solution to restore a smoother, more contoured body shape by targeting specific areas of fat.
During the pre-op consultation process, the surgeon will evaluate the patient as a candidate for this procedure and address any questions that they may have.
The main objective of the surgeon will be to help the patient make an enlightened choice. The patient should engage closely with the surgeon during the consultation process and freely express any concerns or doubts.
Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides liposuction body sculpting to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.
At the time of the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will initially understand the patient’s reasons for seeking liposuction plastic surgery as well as the particular facets of their body that they are displeased about.
If the patient has any underlying health problems, they should inform the surgeon during this consultation. After gathering the necessary feedback, they can make appropriate recommendations to the patient about liposuction.
Patient’s Aesthetic Goals
Each patient has unique aesthetic needs and goals about their body appearance.
The surgeon will try to garner clarity on the patient’s cosmetic goals to develop a customized body contouring plan that incorporates these objectives. This allows them to achieve the patient’s desired outcomes in a less invasive and more targeted manner.
Current Health Condition
The patient should ideally arrange for their previous health records from their physician or specialist to be sent directly to the surgeon’s office in advance. The patient should honestly disclose any current underlying medical conditions, known allergies, or autoimmune diseases to their plastic surgeon.
This will enable the surgeon to modify the liposuction cosmetic surgery procedure to reduce the risks for the patient.
The patient should create a list of all prescription and non-prescription drugs, including herbal supplements and vitamins that they are currently taking. They should carry this list with them to the consultation and present it to the surgeon.
If the patient smokes, they should honestly disclose this to their surgeon. The surgeon may change the medication schedules and provide the patient with instructions to stop smoking for a specified duration for safe surgical results.
Questions and Answers
At the time of the pre-op consultation, the patient will have an opportunity to ask questions about the liposuction surgery and the surgeon’s background.
They should unhesitatingly ask questions and only make a decision after they are completely satisfied with the surgeon’s responses. A dedicated surgeon will provide the patient with correct and detailed answers to their questions.
Pictures and Testimonials
The patient may ask the surgeon to show them liposuction before and after photos as well as testimonials of previous patients. This will allow them to have realistic expectations from the liposuction procedure and learn more about the surgery from the perspective of other patients.
The goal here is to be transparent and Dr. Khan has no problem with that. She wants every patient to be comfortable with the decision they make regardless of what it is.
