A major plastic surgery procedure such as body lift should be preceded by a comprehensive consultation process to create a good foundation for a successful surgery. The surgeon will be able to understand the patient’s unique concerns during the consultation, and create a body lift plan tailored to address those concerns.
The consultation will also give an opportunity to the patient to become more familiar with the surgeon and the practice, and learn about various aspects of body lift in order to make a well-considered choice.
Dedicated cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides lower and upper body lift procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
One of the key steps in the body lift consultation process will be to determine the patient’s candidacy. Body lift can be an extensive plastic surgery procedure, which requires the patient to be in a healthy and fit condition to sustain the surgery as well as general anesthesia. The surgeon will ask questions about the patient’s current health status and also review their past medical records.
Assessing Cosmetic Goals
Each patient will have their own unique cosmetic goals and aspirations. The surgeon will encourage the patient to share these innate cosmetic needs during the consultation, and will try to balance them and incorporate them into the body lift surgical plan. The surgeon’s aim will be to minimize the surgery while maximizing the aesthetic results.
Customized Surgical Plan
Based on the patient’s inputs about their unique cosmetic goals, their anatomical needs as well as their general health condition, the surgeon will create a customized body lift surgery plan. The plan may combine both upper and lower body procedures, or only address one or two sites.
Liposuction fat reduction may be added with body lift in some cases. The surgeon will create the plan in such a way that minimum incisions are required and targeted results are achieved with least trauma.
Questions and Answers
The consultation session will provide an opportunity to the patient to clear all their concerns and doubts about the body lift procedure as well as the surgeon’s practice. Patients should feel free to ask questions, and satisfy themselves completely before they decide to go ahead with the surgery. Body lift before and after photos as well as past patient testimonials may also be presented before the patient at this time.
Other Information and Tips
The surgeon will provide tips and guidelines during the body lift consultation for pre-op preparation and post-op recovery. Restrictions on smoking and certain types of medications may be temporarily imposed. Patient will be advised to arrange for transportation and aftercare as required.
The surgeon or their team will discuss the costs, insurance and financing aspects to assist the patient with the payment for the body lift procedure. If the patient wants, they may have a brief office tour and interact with one of the staff members to learn more about the surgeon’s practice.
