Planning an Office Visit

Being prepared for your consultation or noninvasive cosmetic procedure will help you communicate your needs and concerns to your plastic surgeon and office staff. Go prepared, with questions and having done your research beforehand. Make sure you follow any instructions given to you over the phone to prepare you for your visit.


Each procedure section on Smart Beauty Guide details which questions would be appropriate or helpful to ask your plastic surgeon, nurse, or skincare specialist during your visit. Choose the procedure(s) that you are interested in to find specific questions. View Procedures ➔

Photo Gallery

A picture could say a thousand words. If you have pictures of results that you admire, bring them. Ask to see before-and-after photos from your plastic surgeon’s previous patients. These will give you an indication that you’re both on the same page. View the Photo Gallery ➔
