Steps Towards a New You
The consultation is your first opportunity to meet with Dr. Patel. It allows him to evaluate and examine your needs and make his recommendation to you. Dr. Patel will work with you to determine the ideal procedure, personalized to your individual needs. Prior to surgery, photographs will be taken in the office. These photographs are an integral part of the consultation, as they will illustrate what Dr. Patel feels may be reasonably accomplished.
During the consultation, Dr. Patel will discuss whether your procedure will be performed on an outpatient basis at a surgery center, at a local hospital or in the comfort of his office. Prior to the surgery, you will receive a detailed list of instructions, outlining what you will need to do to prepare yourself.
The Day of Surgery
Depending on the type chosen, the anesthesia will be administered by the surgeon or an anesthesiologist. Regardless of the type of anesthesia administered, every effort will be made to make you comfortable.
Your Postoperative Care
Following your procedure, you will be given detailed postoperative instructions. Dr. Patel will ask you to return for postoperative care at regularly scheduled intervals so he can closely monitor your recovery. These appointments are crucial in achieving the best possible surgical results.
