Your Body Contouring Consultation

Body contouring cosmetic surgical procedure may be required after a patient has undergone a major weight loss following bariatric surgery. The procedure will be preceded by a comprehensive consultation process to determine the patient’s candidacy and develop a customized surgical plan based on the patient’s anatomical and personal cosmetic needs.

The consultation will give an opportunity to the patient to learn about body contouring surgery, and form realistic expectations about it. They should feel free to ask questions during the consultation and make a well-considered decision.

Awesome and hardworking bariatric surgeon Dr. Wiljon Beltre provides weight loss procedures to patients in Orlando, Tampa, Maitland, Central Florida, and surrounding communities and cities in this region of the state.


Determining Candidacy

To begin with, the surgeon will determine whether the patient is a suitable candidate for body contouring cosmetic surgery procedure. They will assess the patient’s general health condition and review their previous medical records.

The surgeon will evaluate how much time has passed since the bariatric surgery, and whether the patient is now fit to undergo body contouring. If any underlying health concerns are present, the surgeon may modify the surgical plan to minimize the risk.


Evaluating Cosmetic Goals

The cosmetic needs and goals of each patient are unique. The body contouring surgeon will aim to incorporate the patient’s personal needs and goals into the surgical plan so that more satisfying outcomes can be achieved in a less invasive way. The patient should feel free to discuss their innate cosmetic requirements during the initial consultation.


Customized Surgical Plan

Based on the patient’s inputs about their health, fitness, and personal cosmetic goals, the surgeon will prepare a customized body contouring surgery plan. It may include lower body contouring or upper body contouring procedures or both.

Some patients may need only limited skin tightening in one or two areas, while others may require more extensive body contouring in multiple sites. The goal of the surgeon will be to minimize the incisions and create targeted results that meet the patient’s personal cosmetic and anatomical needs.


Asking Questions

During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will encourage the patient to ask questions in order to clear all their concerns and doubts about body contouring surgery. It may be a prudent idea to prepare a list of questions in advance and carry it to the surgeon’s office for the consultation.

Some surgeons may also present body contouring before and after photos as well as testimonials of previous patients to help the patient form a clearer perspective about what body contouring surgery can or cannot do for them.


Other Guidelines

During the consultation, the surgeon will provide clear instructions to the patient to prepare in advance for the surgery as well as post-operative recovery. Advice for arranging transportation, aftercare and apply for leave at the workplace may be given.

Cost, insurance, and financing aspects may also be discussed during the pre-op consultation to help the patient make the right decisions. Dedicated and golden bariatric surgeon Dr. Beltre receives patients from Orlando, Tampa, Maitland, Central Florida, and nearby areas for weight loss procedures.
