BETTER TO BE THOROUGH

During an initial consultation, the plastic surgeon reviews the medical file of the patient to determine the range of potential options in the light of possible constraints linked to the patient’s state of health, surgical and medical history.
The expectations and desires of the patient (face or neck lift, rhinoplasty, blépharoplasty,injections of botox or hyaluronic acid) are considered in equal measure to the level of aging of his/her skin, lifestyle, diet, existing scar tissues and potential relevant hereditary factors.

This in-depth examination allows the aesthetic practitioner to clarify the options open to a particular individual cosmetic surgery or injections) and enables the patient to revise his/her original idea in view of the expert advice from the doctor. Following this initial consultation there is a cooling-off period to allow the patient to think carefully about his/her choice.
As aesthetic cosmetic surgery is not actually urgent, you will have plenty of time to really think before going ahead with for example, changing your nose, your cheeks or chin or undergoing any anti-aging procedures (classic lift, brow lift).
