Are You a Good Candidate?
An ideal candidate for the procedure is a woman who knows she is finished having children and is frustrated with her post-pregnancy body. Normally, patients are encouraged to delay having the surgery until they are completely finished having children to ensure that the results of this procedure are long-lasting. Similar to other cosmetic surgery procedures, patients should generally be in good health, have reasonable expectations, and be fully committed to the necessary recovery period after surgery.
Patients interested in this procedure should begin by researching the procedure on their own, and gaining as much information about the procedure as well as the surgeons who provide this procedure. Once the patient feels she understands the procedure, and feels that this procedure may give her the results she desires, she should call to schedule a consultation at Lohner Plastic Surgery.
During the consultation appointment, potential patients will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the practice. Once in the consultation room, Dr. Lohner will begin by reviewing a patient’s medical history, current medications, and discuss the patient’s desired aesthetic goals. Next, he will examine the patient in an exam room, explaining the procedure, discussing potential risks, and the expected recovery process. This appointment is the perfect opportunity for the patient to raise any questions about the procedure that the patient found during their own research. If it is determined that this type of procedure is the procedure that best fits a patient’s needs, a surgical plan will be created.
