  • 5 Questions To Ask Your Cosmetic Surgeon During a Virtual Consultation

Are you preparing for a virtual plastic surgery consultation? Here are 5 of the top questions you must ask your cosmetic surgeon prior to any procedure, and why this meeting is so critical for achieving the safest and most satisfactory surgical outcome.

Have you been considering having a cosmetic procedure done? This period of self-isolation can be a perfect opportunity to finally take the time to schedule a phone or virtual consultation with your plastic surgeon.

In normal circumstances, a face-to-face meeting with your prospective surgeon is highly recommended, but booking a virtual plastic surgery consult during this time can provide an excellent alternative because:

  • It can be done from the safety and comfort of your own home
  • It’s location independent, so you can talk to a plastic surgeon in a different geographic area.
  • It reduces the spread of any infections or illnesses, such as COVID-19

5 Questions to Ask During Your Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultation

Your consultation with your plastic surgeon, whether it’s virtual or face-to-face, provides an excellent opportunity to get to know your doctor, discuss your aesthetic goals, and ask any questions you may have regarding your cosmetic procedure.


While there are no wrong questions to ask during this meeting, there are some key concerns you should address on your list to ensure you are making the right decision for your health and safety.

These include:

  1. Are You Board Certified? The trust between you and your surgeon is vital, so make sure to ask about your doctor’s experience, especially regarding the procedure you want. Remember to ask about the surgeon’s certification: it is absolutely necessary that your doctor is certified and a member of The Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons.
  2. How Many Times Have You Performed This Procedure? You need to know if your surgeon is skilled in the procedure you are considering. This will help you feel confident that you’ve found the right doctor. Most cosmetic surgeons will have before and after photos of their previous surgeries, as well as patient testimonials that they can share with you.
  3. What Will Be The Cost of My Procedure? The total cost of your cosmetic procedure will include the surgeon’s fees, anesthesia, operating room expenses, and any other materials required, such as breast implants. The price of the procedure will vary depending on your specific needs, so it’s important to address this with your surgeon. Remember, while price should factor into your decision, NEVER choose a cosmetic surgeon based on cost alone.
  4. Where Will You Perform The Surgery? You want to know where the procedure will take place - whether that’s the local hospital, the doctor’s office, or a certified surgery centre. Ask if your surgeon has access to the best instruments and staff, as well as to emergency medical attention. Remember, as a patient, you deserve the highest standard of safety and technical expertise.
  5. How Long Will My Recovery Period Be? In order to decide whether or not it’s the right time for you to undergo cosmetic surgery, you must understand the details of the recovery process. Will you have to take time away from normal activities such as childcare and exercise? Before undergoing such surgeries, you have to be prepared to be ‘out of commission’ for a few days or weeks, depending on which procedure you are considering.

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
