What Should You Bring to Your First Plastic Surgery Consultation?

Whether you’re planning to have your nose done or are interested in undergoing breast augmentation, an initial consultation is required to determine if your body can handle the surgery and recovery process. If you have arranged an appointment with one of the top plastic surgeons in Philadelphia at Gabay & Gottlieb Cosmetic Surgery center, then you are most likely pondering about what you should bring to the appointment.

Some lingering thoughts may be:

“What should I expect from this meeting?”

“How should I prepare for the consultation?” 

It’s understandable that you’d have these questions. After all, you want to make the best of the time you are going to spend with the plastic surgeon. Furthermore, you know that the procedure you want done will be permanent, so you want to make sure everything is safe and will be done correctly.


At our elite surgical-center, we’ll take care of you in our comfortable office atmosphere. When we meet, we will educate you about your options, perform a physical and health evaluation, and make sure you are at ease with your decision before surgery is even scheduled. As reputable plastic surgeons in Philadelphia, we have years of experience in the field, helping men and women achieve the makeover they’ve always wanted. You’re in good hands!

Nonetheless, we want you to get the best out of your experience. Some things you should do to prepare for our first meeting are:

  • If consulting about body contouring procedures, wear comfortable clothing that will allow disrobing to be practical and convenient. During the meeting, the surgeon will ask you to undress the areas of the body you are looking to improve so he can examine them and provide his expertise.
  • Write down all of the questions you’d like to ask the surgeon and have them handy. You can use the list as a guide while discussing the plastic surgery.
  • If you have medical history information, bring it with you. It will help you to answer the questions on the medical paperwork you will be asked to fill out upon arrival. The doctor can also review it as well.
  • Provide a full list of all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that the plastic surgeon can review them.

By doing these preparatory tasks, you can be assured that your plastic surgery consultation will meet your needs and more.
