A successful consultation process is a foundation for every plastic surgery procedure. The consultation involves a one-on-one discussion with the surgeon, where the patient will have the opportunity to clarify any concerns.
Prior to making a final decision about brow lift surgery, the patient should openly ask questions to get the most from their consultation.
There are certainly no ‘wrong’ questions to ask at the time of the consultation, but there are some vital questions that the patient should ask prior to a brow lift surgery. The surgeon will spend time answering all the questions in-depth to enable them to make a well-considered choice.
