One of the most important elements in getting the plastic surgery result you want is the initial consultation with your surgeon. It is during this meeting that you will work with Dr. Shaddix to truly define your aesthetic goals and decide what is achievable through plastic surgery. Dr. Shaddix sets aside ample time for your consultation so that you may get to know him and his philosophy of truly caring for his patients. You will have all the time you need to get answers to your questions. We want you to be informed and confident that, by choosing Dr. Shaddix, you are making the decision that is right for you.
When you arrive, we will collect some preliminary information pertaining to your past medical and surgical history. You will then spend time with Dr. Shaddix to discuss specifically what you want to achieve with aesthetic enhancement surgery. We encourage you to bring in images from magazines or the internet that exemplify the look you want. After a thorough discussion, Dr. Shaddix will examine the areas you would like treated. After the exam, Dr. Shaddix will be able to discuss the surgical and minimally-invasive options that are available to treat your concerns.
Many patients elect to come to the consultation by themselves while others like to bring a friend or loved one. Often times an extra person may help you in remembering all that is discussed. Dr. Shaddix is happy to answer any questions your friends and family may have. We have designed our examination rooms to provide for your comfort and relaxation. We understand that discussing your appearance and the problem areas of your body can be stressful, and even embarrassing, at times. Dr. Shaddix prides himself on putting you at ease so that you feel perfectly comfortable asking any questions and are able to fully understand the answers.
Once all of your questions have been answered and a potential plan created, a member of our team will provide you with a written quote. Financing and scheduling can also be discussed at this time. You will absolutely never feel pressured at Shaddix Plastic Surgery. We understand the importance of feeling comfortable with your treatment plan and knowing that you’ve found the right surgeon. We want you to be educated, comfortable, and confident with your choice.
After your consultation, if you realize that you forgot to ask Dr. Shaddix a question or you have a new concern, just let us know. Dr. Shaddix will be happy to speak with you over the phone or have you come in for a second consultation. There are never too many questions to ask before moving forward with your cosmetic surgery.
