The purpose of a consultation is for us to arrive at an informed and consensual decision about how to proceed. This can take time, so after our initial consultation, I will not ask you to pay a deposit or sign up to surgery during that consultation.
Although the results can be life-changing, undergoing an operation should not be a decision made lightly. I have a reputation for professionalism, honesty and transparency and I want you to feel confident that plastic surgery is the best solution. My aim is for me to understand how I can best help you and for you to fully understand the process involved in any surgery.
After all the facts have been presented, you will receive a quote. This is a package price to cover the full treatment, after surgery care and any unexpected costs that may arise. If you decide that plastic surgery is the right course of action, I will ask you to contact my secretary to arrange a follow-up appointment to finalise the details and book your surgery. As such I will need an initial consultation and for most patients a second consultation before we agree to proceed.
A clinical operating room, skilled surgery and regular follow up appointments reduce the risks. You will also be presented with self-care information. Whilst it may feel important to return to work or resume other activities ahead of our recommendations, adherence to our advice plays a considerable role in the success of the procedure.
