7 Questions To Ask During Your Plastic Surgery Consultation: Part 1

Conveniently Located to Serve Southfield, MI

Your complimentary consultation is one of the most important steps in getting plastic surgery. This is when you get to talk to your plastic surgeon about the concerns you have with your body and come up with a game plan to boost your confidence moving forward. If you know what to ask during your consultation, you will have a better understanding of the procedure you desire. At Michigan Cosmetic Surgery, we take pride in helping our patients to be as informed as possible. Consider these seven questions to ask during your plastic surgery consultation so you can make the best decision for your body. Remember, you will be working with a leading female plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation in Michigan, Dr. Mariam Awada.

1 – Is Your Doctor A Trained Plastic Surgeon Who Specializes In Cosmetic Surgery?

It is shocking that so many patients who come to me, Dr. Mariam Awada, for corrections were not aware that their doctor was not a plastic surgeon trained in cosmetic surgery. Unfortunately, many follow advertisements on TV and the radio, expecting people to be trained plastic surgeons. Many of these doctors who advertise their services have never gone through plastic surgery residency to have formal cosmetic surgery training. Those who are plastic surgeons do not solely dedicate their entire practice, staff, experience, and research to cosmetic surgery, like we do at our clinic. They may routinely perform reconstructive work and do cosmetic surgery on the side, but they do not work with cosmetic surgery patients day in and day out. I focus my entire practice on cosmetic surgery. I’ve performed thousands of cosmetic surgery procedures over the years, and there are over 50 years of experience between me and my cosmetic surgery trained staff. In addition, as a cosmetic plastic surgeon, I train other plastic surgeons and residents how to perform plastic surgery. I dedicated all of her research in developing the latest techniques on cosmetic plastic surgery, and I strive to ensure my patients receive the absolute best care available.

2 – Which Plastic Surgery Procedure Is Right For Me?

Talk to your plastic surgeon about the goals you’re trying to achieve, and then you can work together to decide the best procedure for your individual needs. At my cosmetic surgery clinic, I perform a physical exam during the consultation to determine which procedures will work for your body. Many patients come into our office with one specific procedure in mind, when there are other options that are much more suited for their needs. For example, you may want to get liposuction to flatten your stomach when a tummy tuck is what is required to address your concerns. Rather than focusing on a specific surgery you want to get, pick out the areas of your body that you want to correct, adjust, or improve. You and I will determine which surgical procedures are right for you, and I’ll help you understand why those surgeries are the best fit.

3 – Can I See Your Before And After Picture Book?

A great way to see the quality of a surgeon’s work is to look at before and after pictures from previous patients who have your shape and physical attributes. This will give you a realistic idea of what type of results to expect from your surgery. It will show you that your surgeon is in fact qualified to handle the task at hand. Feel free to look through our photo gallery to see a few examples of my work for some of the procedures at Michigan Cosmetic Surgery. During your consultation with me, you will view a much more extensive photo gallery.

4 – Can I View Your Testimonials?

My staff and I are most proud of the hundreds of letters of gratitude we have received over the years from happy patients. Anyone can post a review online, even people who have never been through a plastic surgery consultation or procedure. That’s why it is best to read original testimonial letters from patients verbatim. During your consultation, you will be able to read hundreds of testimonials and thank you letters from previous patients. There are a handful you can read directly at our patient testimonials directly on our website to get a taste of how happy our patients are and the changes in their lives after surgery.
