Every patient brings a unique set of experiences, beliefs, and expectations to the initial Facial Plastic Surgery consultation. These ideas should be fully and completely explored with an open discussion. Only by understanding these goals can I accurately guide each patient to the most appropriate treatment option. A careful history and thorough physical exam will help alert me to the challenges ahead and allow me to guide patient expectations. When possible, I use computer imaging to help further outline the goals of surgery. My most satisfied patients are ones that are well informed with a clear, accurate vision of the outcome.
