A personal consultation with Dr. Lesavoy is the first step for every patient considering skin treatment. During this meeting, Dr. Lesavoy will assess your physical health and discuss your specific cosmetic goals.
You should arrive at the consultation prepared to provide complete information about:
- previous facial injuries, surgical procedures or facial-skin treatments
- skin conditions, including acne and allergies, that have been previously diagnosed or treated
- medications you are taking or have taken previously, including dietary and herbal supplements.
During your physical examination, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your skin type and the severity of any sun damage, uneven pigmentations and surface imperfections. Your surgeon’s observations will help determine which treatments or procedures can offer you the greatest benefit.
Many people elect to have a skin treatment or resurfacing procedure in conjunction with other rejuvenating surgical procedures, such as facelift, browlift or eyelid surgery.
