With all the information available online about plastic surgery, most patients arrive for their consultations quite knowledgeable about the procedures they want. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t nervous, especially if considering a highly personal surgery such as breast augmentation.
Well, rest assured. At our practice in Albany, New York, our team’s top priority is to help patients feel at ease from the moment they walk through the door.
I had the chance a few months ago to speak with Cliché magazine about the importance of the consultation process and the work and attention to detail required to make that process both comfortable and productive for the patient. Those efforts are reflected on our website in a section called Your First Visit. That’s where prospective patients can learn about what to expect at a consultation and find other information and forms they can fill out at home.
A successful surgical outcome begins at the consultation. This is our chance as physicians to establish a rapport with you and build the trust that’s essential to our relationship as surgeon and patient. We conduct a thorough physical exam and make sure to take a lot of time asking you questions about your motivations and background so we can make recommendations that are truly tailored to you.
By investing in proven, new technologies, our practice offers patients a wide range of options. That enables me to create unique solutions that match an individual patient’s needs, rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. Creating this treatment plan, whether it involves a nonsurgical procedure or surgery, is a collaborative process that we both participate in.
The consultation is also the time for you to get to know us, and we welcome questions about our credentials, preferred techniques, and more. We feel grateful that our patients put their trust in us and invite us into their lives during this transformative time, so we’re glad to open up a strong lane of communication.
