Choosing to have plastic surgery is an exciting, life-changing decision. To achieve the best results, the most important first step is to book a consultation with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon. 

Many prospective patients do their research by browsing the internet and talking to family and friends who have had plastic surgery. While this is helpful to your decision-making process, one of the most important parts of your research will be having a professional consultation.

Booking a plastic surgery consultation with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon has many benefits.

  • Your surgeon can help you select the right procedure to meet all your aesthetic goals.
  • You’ll be able to fully understand all the risks and benefits associated with the surgery to make the most informed decision.
  • It’ll ensure the safest results and minimize your risk of surgical complications.
  • All your concerns and questions will be answered for total peace of mind.

What is a Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultation?

Not long ago, seeking the advice of a board-certified plastic surgeon beyond your postal code seemed impossible, but thanks to the internet, virtual plastic surgery consultations are becoming more and more popular.

Virtual consultations are ideal for patients who:

  • Live quite a far distance from their preferred cosmetic surgeon
  • Have a very busy schedule
  • Prefer the privacy of an online pre-consultation
  • Would like to receive a preliminary assessment from a board-certified plastic surgeon


What to Expect From a Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultation

If you are interested in saving time and energy travelling to a clinic and wish to get a rapid assessment of what plastic surgery might be able to do for you, then a virtual consultation may be a great start.

NOTE: While the virtual consultation is not a replacement for an in-office consultation, it is a great place to start. It can help you answer some important questions, including:

  1. Is cosmetic surgery the right option for you?
  2. If so, which procedure/procedures are appropriate?
  3. Which surgeon do you want to perform your surgery?


Virtual Consultation Steps

If you live outside of the area, or simply prefer the privacy of an at-home evaluation, then you can opt for a virtual consultation. This involves the following steps:

  1. You’ll send photographs of the area(s) you want to improve.
  2. You’ll send a few sentences describing your surgical goals and the results you want to achieve.
  3. After the photographs and information you submit are reviewed, it’ll be determined if you are a good candidate for plastic surgery.
  4. A preliminary plan may be sent to you by a plastic surgeon.
  5. The doctor will then schedule a time for you to meet with them in person to discuss your concerns and questions further.


Can a Virtual Consultation Replace an In-Person Meeting?

No. While a virtual consultation is a good first step in establishing trust and comfort, it does not replace an in-person consultation. It must be followed up by a physical exam so that your plastic surgeon can examine your body and observe your skin and musculature to develop the safest, most effective treatment plan.

Virtual Follow Up

A virtual follow up after your plastic surgery can also be conducted using email, text, or Skype. This is done so that your surgeon can find out how you are healing and provide any post-treatment advice. However, it’s advisable that you remain in touch with a local, nearby surgeon in case any complications develop during the recovery period.
