Liposuction plastic surgery is a proven and effective solution for body contouring to restore a smoother, more defined body shape by targeting specific areas of fat. At the time of the initial consultation, the surgeon will determine the patient’s candidacy for this procedure and answer any questions that they may have.
The primary goal of the surgeon will be to enable the patient to make a judicious choice. The patient should interact closely with the surgeon at the time of the consultation process and unhesitatingly express any doubts or concerns.

Sundin, provides liposuction body sculpting to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
During the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will first understand the patient’s reasons for seeking liposuction cosmetic surgery as well as the specific aspects of their body that they are unhappy about.
In case the patient suffers from any pre-existing medical issues, they should disclose this information to the surgeon during this consultation. After attaining the required inputs, they can make suitable recommendations to the patient about liposuction surgery.
Patient’s Cosmetic Goals
Every patient has unique cosmetic goals and needs about their body appearance. The surgeon will try to understand the patient’s aesthetic goals to create an individualized body contouring plan that incorporates these goals. This enables them to accomplish the patient’s desired results in a minimally invasive and more precise manner.
Current Medical Condition
Ideally, the patient should arrange for their previous medical records from their doctor or specialist to be sent directly to the surgeon’s office ahead of the consultation.
The patient should also honestly reveal any current underlying health conditions, known allergies, or autoimmune diseases to their cosmetic surgeon. This allows the surgeon to make modifications to the liposuction plastic surgery plan to minimize the risk for the patient.
The patient should enlist all prescription and non-prescription medications, including vitamins and herbal supplements that they are presently taking. They should take this list with them to the consultation and present it to the plastic surgeon.
In case the patient smokes, they should reveal this to their surgeon. The surgeon may alter their drugs schedule and ask the patient to discontinue smoking for a specified period for safe surgical outcomes.
Questions and Answers
During the pre-operative consultation, the patient will have an opportunity to ask the surgeon questions on the procedure as well as the surgeon’s background.
They should openly ask questions and only decide after they are fully satisfied with the surgeon’s answers. A committed surgeon will offer the patient in-depth and accurate responses to their questions.
Pictures and Testimonials
The patient may request the surgeon to show them liposuction before and after images and testimonials of past patients. This will enable them to develop reasonable expectations from the liposuction surgery and understand more about the procedure from the viewpoint of other patients.
This will enable the surgeon to close the gap of misunderstanding with the patient. This will enable the patient to make this critical decision based on firm information. This is better for everyone involved. Digital technology is critical here because the images provided using this technology creates a clarity for the patient that many years ago just was not possible.
