What Questions Should You Ask Your Neck Liposuction Surgeon?Posted on July 5, 2022
Neck liposuction plastic surgery can greatly improve the appearance of your lower neck and face. Patients have a great opportunity to clear all their concerns and doubts during the initial consultation with the treatment provider. You can also ask questions about the surgeon’s experience, credentials, practice, and team.
Most responsible surgeons do everything possible to educate their patients about the procedure so that they can make a well-informed decision. Your surgeon may recommend the neck liposuction surgery in combination with other procedures. Neck lift and facelift procedures are usually performed with neck liposuction surgery.
Patients are recommended to write down questions before the consultation so that they don’t miss out on having their doubts cleared. Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides neck liposuction to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.
Making an Informed and Independent Decision
It is necessary that the decision for getting a plastic surgery is of the patient. The decision should not be influenced by celebrities, friends, or magazines. Patients should let the treatment provider know their decision is voluntary by signing consent forms. The consent forms should mention that the patient is aware of all potential risks involved in the procedure.
Patients should ideally read through the plastic surgeon’s website for understanding more about their practice, experience, and background. Patient should also request for a brief office tour during the initial pre-operative consultation. They should meet team members assisting the surgeon to become more familiar with the practice.
You should ask the surgeon the following questions:
- Do you have specific training in neck and facial plastic surgery?
Board certified facial plastic surgeons are extensively trained in their particular field. They are likely to provide more successful outcomes as compared to less experienced plastic surgeons. These surgeons are better equipped for developing individualized surgical plans. They are also more adept at dealing with emergency situations. Their surgical plans can be customized for suiting specific needs of a patient.
- Where will you perform the cosmetic surgery?
Typically, patients undergo neck liposuction cosmetic surgery at an accredited private surgical suite, surgery center, or hospital. Each option has their own benefits and drawbacks along with different costs. Ideally, cosmetic surgeons should have operating privileges at more than a single surgical center or hospital. They would need to work with an anesthesiologist if the neck liposuction is performed under general anesthesia.
- What is the estimate cost of the neck liposuction surgery?
Neck liposuction surgery is an elective procedure. Your insurance coverage may not necessarily cover the costs. This is why you should know the various payment methods, surgical costs involved and available financing options. Estimated overall costs should account for pre- and post-operational expenses as well.
- Does the procedure involve any risks or complications?
Patients should know the risks involved with the procedure for making an enlightened decision. A dedicated surgeon will ensure that the patients are completely informed about the risks before going ahead with the surgery. Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for neck liposuction.
