Why come to Iteld Plastic Surgery for a consultation

By: Dr. Lawrence Iteld


In the world of aesthetics, the decision to undergo plastic surgery or have nonsurgical treatments is deeply personal. Before taking the plunge, it’s important to educate yourself and explore your options. This is where consultation plays an important role. 

From personalized assessments and education to professional guidance and peace of mind, consultations pave the way for safe, effective, and fulfilling aesthetic results. Whether you’re considering a subtle enhancement or a more dramatic change, taking the first step with a consultation sets you on the path toward realizing your aesthetic goals with confidence and clarity.

Advantages of having a consultation

There are many advantages to coming to us for a consultation for both surgical and nonsurgical procedures:

  • Personalized Assessment: Individuals are unique, and so are their aesthetic goals and concerns. A consultation allows for a thorough assessment of your specific needs and desires. Whether you’re considering a surgical procedure or nonsurgical treatments, we listen to your concerns and discuss options tailored to your needs.
  • Education and Information: Consultations are educational experiences. They provide an opportunity to learn about the various procedures available, their benefits, risks, and limitations. Understanding the ins and outs of both surgical and nonsurgical treatments can empower you to make informed decisions about your cosmetic journey.
  • Professional Guidance: We are experts in our field, equipped with years of training and experience. During a consultation, you benefit from our expertise and guidance. We offer insights into which procedures are best suited to achieve your aesthetic goals while maintaining natural-looking results.
  • Exploration of Alternatives: Not everyone seeking aesthetic enhancement is ready for or needs surgery, and that’s perfectly okay. A consultation allows you to explore nonsurgical alternatives, such as injectables, dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser treatments, and radiofrequency. These options can address concerns like wrinkles, volume loss, and skin texture without the need for invasive procedures.
  • Safety First: Safety is paramount in any cosmetic procedure – whether surgical or nonsurgical. During a consultation, we conduct a comprehensive health assessment to ensure you are a suitable candidate for your chosen treatment(s). We also discuss any potential risks and complications, ensuring you have realistic expectations and are fully informed and prepared.
  • Customized Treatment Plan: Following a consultation, you’ll have a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique anatomy, goals, and preferences. Whether it involves a surgical procedure, a series of non-invasive treatments, or a combination approach, the plan is designed to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
  • Peace of Mind: A consultation provides you with peace of mind. Our practice is a safe space for asking questions, voicing concerns, and addressing any uncertainties you may have, ultimately fostering confidence in your chosen path.
  • Building Trust and Rapport: Establishing a rapport with us is essential for a positive experience. A consultation serves as the foundation for building trust and a strong doctor-patient relationship. It allows you to gauge our team’s expertise, communication style, and approach, ensuring you feel comfortable and confident throughout your cosmetic journey.
