But here's the thing as you contemplate having your own plastic surgery: how does any of that information apply to you as an individual? How do you even begin to distinguish fact from fiction? How do you decide which procedure is the right one for you? How can you know which doctor and facility are the best choices for your chosen procedure? How can you increase the odds of getting the results you want? How can you be sure you are even a good candidate for plastic surgery in the first place? The more factual information the patient collects, the better off the patient, the surgeon, the anesthesiologist and the support staff are going to be. More factual information is good; inaccurate or little information is downright scary. Author and renowned facial plastic surgeon, Brenton B. Koch, MD, FACS, is going to cut through all the fluff and confusion and tell you in straightforward, honest terms exactly what to ask potential surgeons and their support staff during your plastic surgery consultation.
"Together, you and I will walk through a list of questions that has been fourteen years in the making; a series of inquiries designed to bring you greater clarity and confidence as a potential consumer of plastic surgery. These are the questions I get on a day-to-day basis from those well-prepared patients I described above. These are the questions I wish all of my patients would ask me. And not only am I going to give you the questions, but I am also going to give you the answers that I think are the most responsible and helpful. Lastly, I am going to give you a series of questions for you to ask yourself about your motivation, expectations and readiness for plastic surgery. These are the questions I wish all of my patients would ask themselves before they come in for a consultation."
