Your first visit with a plastic surgeon can be both exciting and scary. Exciting, because you are finally taking the steps towards achieving the body of your dreams. Scary, because you are baring all of your insecurities with someone you have never met before.
To ease some of those nerves, this page is here to cover exactly what you can expect during your first consultation with Dr Anh.
What should I expect from my first consultation with Dr Anh?
Dr Anh realises that your initial consultation can be daunting. After all, it is only natural to feel nervous or self-conscious about revealing your body concerns with someone you have never met before. Dr Anh understands that you may feel this way and will try to make the consultation as comfortable for you as possible.
During your first consultation with Dr Anh, you will typically:
- Spend about 45 minutes with Dr Anh and her cosmetic consultants
- Have your photos taken
- Have your medical and surgical history reviewed
- Have a physical examination by Dr Anh
- See before and after photos of previous patients
- Learn about your recommended surgical options
- Received detailed information about your surgery
- Find out about surgery pricing and available dates
- Have any of your questions and concerns answered
Dr Anh always endeavours to create a good rapport with her prospective patients and aims to make your consultation as comfortable as possible. It can also be helpful to have a support person with you. Often, we find that they are able to ask questions that you might be overlooking. We understand that the consultation can be information intensive and second person will be able to assist you with any details you might forget.
If you choose to progress with surgery, our dedicated surgical team will help organise a suitable date, review all of your details and walk you through the consent forms. Our team is on hand to answer any questions you may have, and is always contactable through our dedicated surgical email.
Your consultation with Dr Anh will go for around 45 minutes. While Dr Anh does usually run on time, working in health care does mean the occasional delay and we apologise in advance if Dr Anh is running slightly behind schedule on the day you attend. For this reason, it is best to allow some extra time for your appointment – we’d recommend at least 90 minutes of time.
You will also be asked to complete a questionnaire prior to your consultation with Dr Anh. This is how we are able to collect any additional details we may need from you, including your medical history. It is important to have this completed before your appointment day.
While it is not essential, we recommend getting a medical referral, regardless of your reason for attending our clinic. We understand the Medicare system can be confusing, and having a referral will make sure that you are able to claim any rebates you may be entitled to.
If you are considering breast surgery, Crisalix imaging is included in the price of your consultation. This advanced technology allows us to generate a three dimensional representation of your body, and simulate your potential surgical result with various implant sizes, with or without a lift, and even include possible scars to expect.
Dr Anh is very busy, so it helps for you to plan ahead for your consultation. However, we can usually arrange your consultation within two to three weeks of your initial enquiry.
A standard consultation with Dr Anh costs $350. A revision consult is $500.
Your consultation with Dr Anh will take place at her dedicated clinic within the Crown Metropol 5 Star Hotel Complex.
