What can you expect during your tummy tuck consultation?

When you go for your abdominoplasty consultation, you must ensure that you arrive on time and are prepared with questions for your surgeon. Your appointment may run over the allotted time so you may be required to wait or get to see the doctor early if somebody cancels. You must be prepared with all the questions you have regarding the procedure. You should also be clear about the results you expect or any other aspect you may want to discuss about the procedure and recovery.

What should you talk about during the consultation?

During your tummy tuck consultation, you will get to meet the surgeon who will conduct your surgery. You must realize that you are committing your body, time and money into the surgery and it is imperative that you get answers to all your questions.

  • Ensure that the doctor has addressed all your concerns, fears, expectations and questions.
  • You should discuss your complete medical history
  • You must discuss the anesthesia used during the surgery and the placement and number of incisions the surgeon will make
  • Learn about all the involved risks of the procedure
  • Check the before and after pictures of past patients
  • Check the education and certification as well as training of your doctor
  • You must have a clear idea of the cost of the entire procedure as well as the fees of the surgeon

There will be a consent form that you will be required to sign before the procedure. Ensure that you have read everything well before signing the document. This means that you have read and understood all the associated risks of the procedure.

Physical examination during consultation

Your surgeon will also want to conduct a physical examination during the consultation. The doctor then checks the type, thinness, elasticity and condition of your skin. This also allows your surgeon to check the amount of skin which has to be removed during the surgery.

Once your doctor is satisfied that you are a good candidate for the tummy tuck surgery, the surgeon will schedule your date of surgery. If you are also convinced that you must undergo the surgery, you will be required to pay a deposit so that the date can be held for you. You also need to get a chest x-ray and set post surgery appointment dates for your recovery follow-up.
