During your consultation, Dr Motykie appropriately address your desires and concerns and he will then give you a clear understanding of which areas of liposuction will best meet your expectations. The quality of skin overlying your target areas will need to be assessed in order to determine if its elasticity is adequate to allow tightening and retraction after liposuction. Your long-term goals as well as your plans after surgery will also be discussed. If you are not currently on a diet and/or in an exercise program, Dr Motykie may advise you to do so prior to undergoing liposuction in order to better define your trouble areas and improve your overall results. Lastly, Dr Motykie will advise you that any significant weight fluctuations after your surgery can reverse some of the benefits of undergoing liposuction.
Dr Motykie will give you an opportunity to ask him any question you may have about your liposuction surgery as well as its possible benefits in your particular case. When going into your consultation, it is wise to come with questions written down and have a general understanding of the overall procedure so you can be prepared to learn as much as possible during your visit with Dr Motykie. Your overall health will be discussed as well as any surgical procedures you may have had previously. It is important to let Dr Motykie and/or his staff know about any pre-existing medical conditions you may have as well as any possible drug allergies or past surgical procedures. In addition, it is important to disclose the use of any current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol or tobacco.
Cost is always a consideration in elective surgery. At the conclusion of your consultation you will have the opportunity to meet with Dr Motykie’s surgical consultant who will be able to explain to you the possible cost and timing of your liposuction procedure. Cost may include surgeon’s fee, surgical facility costs, anesthesia fees, prescription medications, post-surgery garments, and medical screening tests. Dr Motykie’s consultant will also be able to explain to you all of your possible financing options. Remember, a surgeon’s price for liposuction will vary based on their experience, the type of procedure being performed as well as the geographic location of their office. Please do not bargain shop for your plastic surgery but also make sure that you are not overpaying for your procedure by doing your home work, online research and obtaining several opinions from different board certified plastic surgeons before making your final decision about having your own liposuction procedure.
