The consultation is a very important time for you and a doctor. It is your opportunity to discuss your areas of concern, expectations, and goals. Your liposuction surgeon will also assess your skin tone to identify whether you will benefit from the surgery and, if he or she thinks it’s wise to proceed. The surgeon will then explain what methods of body contouring will work best for you. He will then take a medical history, measure your body mass index and assess your state of mind.
The purpose is to identify any conditions or issues that may affect your ability to benefit from liposuction. The doctor will also describe the pre-op visit, the procedure, and post-operative care. Be sure to take notes during your consultation in case you or a family member has questions later.
