Getting Started

Clinical evaluation by your surgeon is one of the most important steps in your facial plastic surgery journey. Your initial consultation provides you the opportunity to discuss your concerns and questions and to establish an honest working relationship with your surgeon. It is important for you to choose a surgeon with whom you are comfortable and have a good rapport. Your desires should be clearly communicated to the surgeon and, in turn, the surgeon has to ensure that your expectations are realistic.

Computer imaging may be utilized at this stage, as it is a great tool in the communication process. It can help you visualize the potential changes, as well as help the surgeon to communicate to you what is and isn't achievable through surgery.
