Questions That Are Essential To Ask Your Kelowna Plastic Surgeon

A plastic surgery consultation is the first step towards achieving your aesthetic goals. However, it can be difficult to know exactly what to discuss with your doctor. If you’re not sure where to start, here are three key things to discuss at your cosmetic surgery consultation.

We know that when patients visit our hospital in Kelowna for a procedure, whether it's a surgery or simply permanent makeup or botox, you're entrusting your appearance--and more importantly your health--to a doctor and their team. We understand firsthand how important a consultation can be when it comes to selecting the right doctor for any cosmetic procedure.  That's why we've compiled a list of three key questions you should ask any doctor you're considering.

1. The Aesthetic Concerns You Have, And How To Address Them

There can be many ways to address certain patient concerns, as well as many variants of popular procedures like nasal surgery, treatment for ageing neck and jaw areas, or breast augmentation. Discussing these options with a cosmetic surgeon can help you choose which option best fits your aesthetic goals, unique features, and lifestyle.

2. Ask About Your Plastic Surgeon's Experience And Areas Of Expertise

While a consultation is a key way for you to learn about what options work best for you, it is also an opportunity to learn whether the doctor is the right one to perform the cosmetic procedure you’re considering. This applies whether you're seeking a brief Kelowna permanent makeup application or a more in-depth body contouring procedure.

You should feel comfortable asking about your surgeon’s experience, training, as well as any specialties they might have. In addition to this, you may also want to ask about their experience performing the specific procedure that you are looking for. For example, a doctor may be well-known for giving their patients excellent eyebrow lift or breast augmentation results, but that does not necessarily mean they would be the best doctor to go for a medial thigh lift or full mommy makeover.

A consultation can also be a good way to gauge whether you feel comfortable with the surgeon: you should never feel rushed, intimidated, or like the doctor is not considering your unique requirements and situation.

3. What To Expect After Your Procedure

When most people think of the “after” phase of their new surgery, they often focus on the beautiful results they will achieve. However, it’s also important to consider that your body may take some time to heal. Most surgical procedures do require a recovery and adjustment period. Sometimes, this can involve time off work, limiting certain types of sports, or wearing special garments for a certain amount of time after your cosmetic surgery.

Always talk to your surgeon about how much recovery time you will need, as well as what post-surgery procedures are required. This can help you understand what to expect, decide when to schedule your surgery, and have the necessary accommodations in place for a comfortable and smooth recovery.

If you’re looking for quick rejuvenation results with no downtime, or aren’t prepared to take time off for a recovery period, you may want to consider alternatives to cosmetic surgery. When you work with our skilled team in Kelowna, permanent makeup, botox, and laser treatments are treated with just as much care and attention to detail as surgical procedures.

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.
