When getting ready for your cosmetic surgery consultation it’s important to do your research and come prepared with questions. Whether you’re meeting with the experts at Silk Touch, or another cosmetic professional, having a list of questions ready ahead of time can ensure you get everything you need from your surgeon before making your final decision about the procedure.

Below are 10 questions we think may be helpful to you as you gear up for your consultation.

  1. Do you think this procedure will be beneficial for me and that I am a good candidate?
  2. Should I combine this procedure with another one to help me get the results I am wanting?
  3. What should I do ahead of time to prepare for my procedure?
  4. When will I begin to see results?
  5. Are there any risks or complications I should be aware of before the procedure?
  6. What kind of scarring can I expect from the incisions?
  7. How long do the results last, and will additional procedures be required down the road to maintain the results?
  8. What kind of anesthesia is given and how is it administered?
  9. How would you respond if an emergency were to happen during the procedure?
  10. What are your credentials? Are you a board certified surgeon?

We hope these questions are useful to you and that you use them as a guide to coming up with your own. Our knowledgeable staff is happy to answer any and all questions you may have.

Cosmetic Surgery Vs. Plastic Surgery: What's The Difference

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Feb 11, 2021 1:12:00 PM

If you missed our previous announcement, we at Silk Touch are excited to welcome Dr. Jason Nealy to our team! Dr. Nealy is a triple board certified cosmetic surgeon who is joining us from the Seattle area. Dr. Nealy is leading our new cosmetic surgery expansion, and will be offering procedures like breast implants, tummy tucks and mommy makeovers. So what is cosmetic surgery exactly? The term cosmetic surgery is often confused for plastic surgery, but in fact they are very different things. 

 

Cosmetic surgery is focused on enhancing the beauty of the body through surgical procedures. This type of surgery is based on aesthetic appeal. Cosmetic surgery services include:

 

  • Breast Enhancement
  • Facial Contouring
  • Cosmetic Rhinoplasty
  • Fat Transfer
  • Facial Rejuvenation
  • Body Contouring
  • Skin Rejuvenation

 

Plastic surgery, on the other hand, is focused on the surgical reconstruction of defects to the face and body. These defects can be due to things such as body disorders, disease, trama, and burns. Examples of plastic surgery include:

 

  • Breast reconstruction
  • Burn Repair Surgery
  • Congenital Defect Repair
  • Lower Extremity Reconstruction
  • Hand Surgery
  • Scar Revision Surgery

 

Board certified plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons have similar paths for schooling, but cosmetic surgeons gain far more additional training, knowledge and experience before becoming board certified due to them being required to complete a post-fellowship training program after their initial residency.

 

When choosing a surgeon, it is important to research and keep in mind a doctor’s training and education. As a triple board certified cosmetic surgeon there is no doubt that Dr. Nealy knows his stuff! Don’t miss out on getting on our schedule for one of the many new cosmetic surgical procedures we are offering with Dr. Nealy. Book a consultation today!
