Preparing for Your Consultation
So, you’ve decided to get liposuction and you’ve been scouring the internet for reviews to decide which hospital to consult at. But what should you know to make a good decision? Dr. An advises, “The first person you’ll meet is probably the coordinator, and then the consultation manager. The larger the plastic surgery clinic, the better these aspects are organized. You need to think about what’s important.”
Asking the Right Questions
When you’re at the consultation, it’s crucial to ask the right questions. “You should look at the main function of the hospital you’re visiting for liposuction and check if it can produce good results,” says Dr. An. He suggests asking about the director’s surgical style and before and after pictures of surgery that cannot be searched on the Internet. “You should judge well whether the surgeon has the ability to really create the results you want.”
Your Role in the Consultation
As a patient, you play a significant role in the consultation process. “Before you receive an examination, if you receive a questionnaire or something, you should write all the stories about yourself honestly in it,” Dr. An advises. It’s important to detail any health problems, allergies, and past surgeries. “It’s best for yourself to help the director make accurate judgments.”
Understanding the Liposuction Procedure
“Liposuction is one of the methods to remove fat,” Dr. Han explains. “You should listen to what kind of surgery the director can do and how they plan to do it. It’s important to understand how much the director says is possible.”
After the surgery, it’s all about the post-operative care. “Next is about the postoperative care. You should also check what content it has,” says Dr. An. He emphasizes that the most important thing seems to be the management system for swelling. “Each hospital will have different know-how about this part, so it would be good to ask questions about this part well.”
In conclusion, your liposuction journey is a personal one, and it’s important to be well-informed and prepared. With Dr. An’s guidance, please good luck with navigating this journey with confidence.
