If any surgeries were performed in the past, they should be recorded along with the dates. If the patient has been taking any medications or herbal supplements, a list of names and dosages should be noted.

Questions for the Surgeon

Non-surgical alternatives should also be discussed during the consultation. The patient should also satisfy themselves about the surgeon’s credentials, training and experience and request for patient testimonials and liposuction before and after photos.

 

Medical Terms to Know

The patient should familiarize themselves with common liposuction related terms such as tumescent liposuction, laser liposuction, ultrasound liposuction, local anesthesia and IV sedation, cannula and suction lipectomy.
