The patient consultation is one of the most important steps in the plastic surgery process. During this time you will learn about more about Dr. Ciaravino, our practice, and our unique approach toward breast augmentation and other plastic surgery procedures.
And more importantly, we learn about you… your goals, concerns, and “likes and dislikes,” so that we can design a plan that is just right for you.
We offer our patients a complimentary consultation so you may learn and explore your options without feeling obligated.
Dr. Ciaravino encourages you to discuss your concerns and desires freely. We want you to relax and feel completely comfortable. And we want you to leave the consultation feeling very well-informed. Our detailed patient education program will ensure that your consultation is thorough and your questions are addressed.
In addition to meeting with the doctor, you will also visit with his staff. Dr. Ciaravino’s team is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Most have been patients themselves and are valuable resources for guidance and support.
During the consultation, we’ll help you clearly define your goals. There are a number of ways we go about doing this. In our office and on our website, there are a large number of patient photographs for your review. It’s also helpful for you to bring photos from magazines to show what you like (or don’t like).
Next, Dr. Ciaravino performs a physical exam to evaluate your size, shape, symmetry and the elasticity of your skin. He will also look at your height, your frame and your overall proportions.
For patients considering breast augmentation, we have breast implants available for you to see and feel. We also use a precise sizing system based on your anatomy measurements to help make decisions on implant size.
Once you and Dr. Ciaravino have decided on the ideal surgical plan, it’s time to schedule your surgery date. We meet again for a pre-op visit one to two weeks prior to surgery to review our plan and make sure you are comfortable and well prepared.
If you are interested in cosmetic surgical procedures in the Houston or Sugar Land, Texas area, please contact Dr. Ciaravino to schedule your initial consultation.
