The consultation is an essential step in the process of considering plastic surgery. During your consultation visit you will meet with Dr. Song, as well as our staff, who will be with you throughout the entire surgical process. This is your opportunity to ask any questions you may have and to share all of your body image concerns. Our surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for your requested procedure, explain everything in detail and help you make the most informed decision about what is right for you.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE CONSULTATION?
From the moment you come to our office, we want you to feel comfortable. You will be greeted by our front desk coordinator, who will obtain information such as your demographic sheets, medical history and insurance cards if necessary — we provide the option of filling out the necessary paperwork online through a secure patient portal if you would like to complete this step before the consultation. You will then be seated in our comfortable waiting room.
When you meet with Dr. Song, you will review what it is you would like to change about your body, as well as discuss your expectations and look at before and after picture books. These books give you the opportunity to find patients who have a similar “before” look and to check out what they achieved from their particular procedure. Dr. Song will assess your body and medical history and determine what options will be best for you.
After your visit with Dr. Song, you will have a chance to sit down with our Patient Care Coordinator, Andrea Olson, to discuss the price and/or financing options of the procedure that you and your surgeon have decided on. Finally, if you are ready to schedule the procedure you can do so right then, or you can go home and give Andrea a call when you feel ready.
