Your first and second consultation
The prospect of undergoing any form of surgery is daunting, so your first consultation is designed to give you plenty of time to discuss your potential procedure with Dr Simone Matousek and be made aware of the risks and estimated recovery times.
A second consultation will be essential prior to undergoing cosmetic surgery to further discuss your procedure, ask questions and sign a consent form during your consultation with Dr Simone.
You will then need to go and have a think about the options you have been provided with. If you decide after careful deliberation that you are certain you wish to proceed, one week after this second consultation is the earliest you can book your surgery.
You can fill out our patient information sheet in advance to give us important details needed about your past medical history, previous surgeries, medications and allergies and why you are attending the consultation with Dr Simone. It is useful to bring a current list of all medications that you take, including herbal remedies, vitamins etc.
Clinical photographs need to be taken at the time of a consultation to objectively assess treatment outcomes. You will be given a consent form to sign regarding use of your images and be given a number of options about the use of your photographs. All material collected is treated as strictly confidential and you can elect to provide your images for your medical file only, for research, to show other patients or for use in advertising such as the website or social media. Whilst it is nice for future patients to be able to see before an afters, it is not compulsory and you can withdraw your consent for their use in publication at any time.
