ask the right questions in order to make the right choice.

Before the appointment or in consultation :

Take the case of the facelift: Is it better to opt for a full facelift or a localized facelift?

For example, a frontal facelift combined with a neck lift will systematically call for the lifting of the eyelids and cheeks later.

But in anticipation, by planning to group the interventions, one avoids several anesthesias, several passages to the surgical unit, stays in the clinic and preoperative costs.

This point can be discussed with the surgeon; It is there to answer this kind of interrogation but also to bring all the elements allowing the final decision of the patient.

In addition, it is not necessary to pack but to think about the consequences that a change may entail.

Changing your chest always creates a change of lingerie, refining your body generates the purchase of new clothes.

In fact, the question to be asked is : Can I afford these other fees?

If these new purchases are impossible to achieve in the immediate future, the patient will be frustrated by not being able to put her new assets in value and her satisfaction is incomplete.

Other parameters are to be taken into account. In particular about the patient-surgeon relationship, has the current been passed?

Indeed, you must feel comfortable with your surgeon, enough to be able to ask him any questions you want.

This one has to take its time to respond, to listen to you, to reassure you.

The surgeon must also describe to you all the steps of your intervention, to make you aware of the limitations of plastic surgery and its stresses (anesthesia, pain, scarring, etc.).

  • On face to face with the surgeon, express your wish, talk about what disturbs you, without complex.
  • very often everything remains confusing because mingled with a lot of emotions.
  • That is why you need to clearly define your expectations and ensure that they have been heard.
  • If your objectives are not clearly expressed, you may be dissatisfied with the result.
  • Do not be afraid of your request.
  • Your doctor is a professional who can hear everything, he is not there to judge you but to help you.
