Questions to Ask at the Consultation

Photos & Stories From Real Patients

Today, there are several tools available to help you select the right plastic surgeon for your post bariatric plastic surgery in Sacramento, California and references from other physicians and patients, a thorough examination of the surgeon’s credentials and a close look at the before and after patient photos, are just a few.

Without a doubt, though, your personal consultation is the heart of your evaluation process. At this meeting, not only will you have the chance to ask questions and get a more complete picture of the surgeon you’re considering, you will have the opportunity to see if that natural connection happens — that easy click between patient and surgeon that tells you you’re in the right place.

Dr. David Kaufman believes that an open, positive doctor-patient relationship is as important an aspect of plastic surgery after weight loss in the Sacramento area as any other. That’s why, when you come in for your consultation, he’ll take time to get to know you and your individual concerns. We hope you will ask some of the questions we have compiled for you here:
