At the Andover, Massachusetts and Nashua, New Hampshire offices of Dr. George P. Chatson, your plastic surgery consultation is all about you. From the moment you enter our comfortable office, you will be treated with the respect and care you deserve, and you will leave your consultation with all the information necessary to make the wisest decision for your body and appearance goals.
Below is information regarding what you can expect from your initial consultation with us.
Prior to Your Consultation
Prior to your consultation you will need to fill out new patient information forms. These forms can be accessed on our website or provided to you by our receptionist. It is important for your safety and comfort that you are completely honest about your medical history, medication use, vitamin and herbal supplement intake, and tobacco and alcohol use. These things will all provide Dr. Chatson with necessary information and enable him to tailor your procedure to meet your exact needs.
Before meeting with Dr. Chatson, you will meet with our physician's assistant, nurse, or patient coordinator who can provide a preliminary assessment and answer many of your questions. Our team members are highly trained and familiar with Dr. Chatson's style and aesthetic sense, and will continue to work with you at all times before, during, and after your plastic surgery procedure.
Meeting Dr. Chatson
Your meeting with Dr. Chatson will include a discussion about your medical history. Be prepared to openly answer all of his questions, because they are intended to ensure your safety. Following this discussion, Dr. Chatson will listen closely to your concerns, paying attention to any areas of your body that cause you dissatisfaction.
For breast augmentation and other procedures, your initial consultation may include an examination of the area of your body you wish to address. This may include data collection on measurements and other observations along with photos taken for medical and reference purposes. This information will allow Dr. Chatson to customize surgical options that meet your goals and expectations, and provides him with what he will need to discuss factors such as procedural steps, location, anesthesia, recovery, and cost. When applicable, Dr. Chatson's team will also help you pursue authorization from your insurance company during this consultation.
Opting for plastic surgery is a serious decision. As such, we are committed to helping you make an informed decision. We are dedicated to providing you with all the information you would like, and we do so in our comfortable, welcoming offices.
