You may have had your heart set on that elective surgery you were finally ready to treat yourself to and now you’ve been slightly let down with the growing uncertainty of a pandemic sweeping the world. There are a few things you may want to think about if you are still considering plastic surgery while you may be unsure of the next steps available to you given the pandemic. While it is still unknown when the nation will be back to its usual operations, we do know that at some point, hopefully in the coming months or sooner, everything will be back to business as usual.
A lot of you may be wondering what your options are if you are still interested in engaging in the initial steps of the process to assess whether or not you will be a good candidate for plastic surgery so that you are ready once the city is up and running again. To assist in your decision-making process, there are a few things you might want to consider that you are able to take action on now, better preparing you for when your elective surgery is available to you again.
Do Your Research
You have the opportunity to beat the rush and get ahead of the game once the ban is lifted so you’re ready to get your surgery on the doctor’s calendar. Now is a better time than ever to dive deep into exploring what procedure or procedures you think make the most sense for you and determine what doctor meets your needs based on their years of experience, board certifications, credibility, reviews, transparency, or any other factors that are important to you. It would also be a great idea to start writing down any questions you might have for your doctor during your consultation. Realself.com is a fantastic website to visit to get started.
Schedule a Virtual Consultation
The idea of telemedicine has been around and practiced for a great deal of time and The Lanfranchi Center has always offered video consultations to accommodate out-of-state patients or patients experiencing any obstacles in coming into the office for consultations or follow-up appointments. Now, more than ever, it’s becoming increasingly important to use virtual avenues for more efficient service. Although an appointment in person still may be necessary to completely confirm the best options for your procedure, this is the perfect opportunity to ask questions, learn more about the prospective procedure, establish a rapport with your doctor, and give your doctor the chance to see you and assess you as a candidate for plastic surgery.
Virtual Consultations Available
Inquire About A Waitlist
Now that you’ve had the time to prepare – doing your research and taking the step of having a virtual consultation with your surgeon, you should have an idea of the procedure you want to pursue. While elective surgeries may not be able to be booked at the moment given the uncertainty of the pandemic. Once it is confirmed that the ban has been lifted, doctors will begin contacting their existing patients and prospective patients to book their appointments or procedures. That being said, it is in your best interest to take care of everything within your control now and the options that are available to you, so when it comes time, you’re ready to take the plunge and get that long awaited procedure.
