What Are the Top Questions to Ask Your Plastic Surgeon Before Surgery?

by Ellen Mahony

Young woman with questions about plastic surgery Great plastic surgery is a partnership between you and your doctor. Dr. Ellen Mahony always wants her patients to feel empowered throughout the process, which is why she takes time to walk them through each stage of a procedure and help them set realistic goals and expectations for treatment.

Asking these questions before plastic surgery can help you become more informed about a procedure and make the right decision for your health.

1. How Many Times Have You Performed This Procedure? 

The doctor should be well-versed in any procedure they’re offering. When they are comfortable with a technique, they can ensure their patients get the best results possible. Some plastic and cosmetic surgeons have specialty areas, meaning they may be more confident performing certain procedures than others.

If you are looking for a particular type of cosmetic enhancement, it may be beneficial to find a surgeon that specializes in it.

2. What Are the Benefits of This Procedure? 

While you may have a desired look in mind, there are many pros and some cons to every type of plastic surgery and cosmetic treatment. It’s important to understand all the ways the surgery can benefit you, even in ways you may not have yet considered. The same goes for non-surgical cosmetic enhancements.

For example, did you know BOTOX® can not only improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles but also help treat migraines and excessive sweating? For a limited time, Dr. Mahony is offering BOTOX under the arms to treat sweating for $850, a $300 discount.

When they offer multiple potential benefits, some cosmetic procedures can give you even more value for your money.

3. What Is the Best Way to Treat My Issue? 

There are many ways to tackle cosmetic issues. Some patients want a surgical option right from the start, but there are also cases in which injections and dermal fillers can be an effective (and more affordable) solution.

You may also find that combining treatments into one procedure can minimize downtime. Dr. Mahony is currently offering buccal fat pad excision at a 50% discount for patients that want to incorporate it into their surgery. This procedure helps slim your face and contour your jawline by making a small incision on the cheek and using a surgical tool to gently remove unwanted fat from the buccal space.

Dr. Mahony is always happy to answer questions her patients have before and after surgery. She is here to make sure you get the perfect treatment for your needs, so you can confidently walk out of her office feeling as beautiful as you already are.
