Liposuction surgery, especially the revolutionary SmartLipo Triplex, can change your body contour, your self-image, and so much more. It has long been a popular body-contouring procedure in plastic surgery clinics across the U.S. for this reason. If you’ve been considering a SmartLipo treatment to get the benefits of liposuction along with those of high-tech laser energy, the first step is to book a consultation with a surgeon experienced with this new technique. Then, get ready to take the first leap towards your liposuction surgery during this one-on-one meeting.
Expect To Talk About Yourself… A Lot
Any surgeon you meet with will want to learn as much about you and your medical and physical history before determining your eligibility for any surgery, including SmartLipo Triplex. Most likely, you will be asked to talk about your medical history, including any current and previous medical conditions, your known drug allergies, any recent medical treatments you have received, and all of your previous surgeries. Your surgeon may also ask about your current medications, as well as any herbal supplements or vitamins you are taking. Expect that your use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs will also be discussed, as these substances can interfere with your healing process or increase your risk of serious complications during and after surgery.
As you are talking about all of these different health factors, your surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for SmartLipo surgery. He will base this opinion on whether your health puts you at a low risk for complications and ensures a quick and smooth recovery. Cosmetic surgery should never be performed on individuals who are not healthy enough to sustain it, so expect your surgeon to be very thorough in his evaluation of you. It’s all for your own health and safety.
Expect to Talk About Your Surgical Expectations
If you are a good candidate, next you’ll discuss the concerns which brought you in for a consultation. You should be ready to pinpoint specific areas where stubborn fat cells have accumulated. Before your consultation, think about the overall goals that you would like to achieve with a SmartLipo procedure – slimmer hips, sleeker arms, no more love handles. You know where your fat deposits are the most troublesome, so your surgeon will want to hear from you about it.
While taking your opinions into account, your surgeon will then perform an examination of your body to determine the best course of action. He will make his own recommendations for your procedure to help you achieve your own realistic objectives. The surgeon’s projected results will also take into account your body shape and proportions, to ensure the most natural looking and well balanced results possible. With VECTRA 3D Imaging, your consultation will give you an accurate look at the projected results of your procedure.Your doctor will use this unique technology to create a 3D image of your body and then project your expected results. With the specifics determined, you’re ready to schedule a date for your procedure and start preparing for your SmartLipo treatment. At this point, your surgeon will take “before” photos to help with post-operative evaluations.
Do Research and Ask Questions
While it may seem like you’re answering all the questions at first, your plastic surgeon does want to hear any questions that you may have for him as well. The consultation really is your chance to decide if the surgeon is the right choice for your procedure, so you must feel comfortable working with him in order to proceed. Credentialed surgeons will not be insulted if you ask them about themselves, their experience, and their success rates with other patients. As a prospective patient, these questions should address any concerns, hesitations, or issues you may have.
Regarding your surgeon, you may want to ask about his certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery, any memberships he has with recognized plastic surgery organizations, where he completed his training, and what his patients have said about his work. As for the surgery itself, you might want to ask where it will be performed, what you can do to ensure your best results, and what to expect from your recovery period. Some patients want to better understand their surgical risks, so they may ask how any complications will be handled if they arise. Finally, it is always a good idea to ask what steps will be taken if you are unsatisfied with your post-operative results. Even though most patients never have to deal with these unfortunate results, it is always good to have a plan in advance to allay your fears and anxieties.
