A surgery must be made when there is a clear and precise indication. During the appointment with the plastic surgeon, considering the clinical history and physical examination of the patient, the surgical act that solves the problem is determined.
A plastic and reconstructive surgery is often an urgency.
A plastic and aesthetic surgery is an elective act that must be performed when the patient is motivated, and it is a profound aspiration of improving one or more regions of the body. It may never be a whim or rash act.
In my appointment, I consider to be fundamental a thorough explanation of what is to be done, how to do it, and what kind of recovery is expected. Also, what are the expectations that the patient may and should have.
