What can I expect at my Plastic Surgery Consultation?

For some, the thought of visiting a Plastic Surgeon for the first time may be exciting, intimidating, or nerve-racking. We would like to reassure you that your visit to our office will be a warm, welcoming, and encouraging experience! Don’t be nervous — you will leave your consultation feeling educated, informed, and empowered.

Please bring your New Patient Intake Forms and your health insurance information consultation with you to your first visit.

After you have completed your paperwork, you will be greeted in the waiting room by our wonderful staff, and then escorted to our exam room for your private consultation. You can expect to spend anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour with Dr. Hsu.

our-doctorsOur doctor will take a complete medical history and explore your reasons for seeking surgery, your specific aesthetic goals, and address each of your questions and concerns about your surgery. Don’t be shy! Dr. Patrick Hsu will be more than happy to answer any and all of your questions— he wants to ensure that you leave his office feeling confident about your procedure. If you want, bring a list of questions you would like to have answered. Feel free to bring your spouse/partner or a friend along with you as well.

Dr. Hsu will examine the area(s) of your body you are interested in discussing and determine whether you are a good and safe candidate for surgery. He understands that it is normal to feel anxiety during the exam and will make it as quick and comfortable as possible. If surgery is appropriate, he will then fully review details of the surgical procedure(s) you are seeking, potential risks and complications, and show you before and after photos of typical surgical results.

You will be offered references of other patients that have had a similar procedure, match your age, body type, and personality (they have volunteered to speak to our new patients and to share their experience). Dr. Hsu makes it a priority to know each of his patients extremely well, developing an intimate connection with them to help them feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Please see our testimonials section to hear some of our patients’ experiences in their own words.

After your discussion with our doctors, you will meet with Jane (our physician assistant) to discuss any details concerning insurance authorization, estimated fees, and surgery scheduling.
