Is the first consultation necessary?
Your consultation with Dr. Somogyi is your first chance to relay your desires and discuss your goals. It is necessary for both you and Dr. Somogyi to discuss your goals, your expectations and the types of treatments or procedures you are interested in. Dr. Somogyi will answer all of your questions and suggest the best possible treatments for you.
What happens during a consultation?
During the consultation you will meet Dr. Somogyi and discuss the reason for your visit. After taking a full medical history and doing a full clinical examination, Dr. Somogyi will provide you with a comprehensive explanation of all options and work with you to design a completely individualized treatment plan.
Do I need to schedule a surgery at my first visit?
No. You can schedule an appointment for surgery any time after your consultation. If several months have changed or you have had a significant change in your medical history, you may be asked to return for a repeat consultation.
What happens if I still have questions after the first visit?
You can contact the office any time to ask any question you may have. Dr. Somogyi is always available by email or phone and happy to discuss more detailed questions by scheduling a second office visit. Dr. Somogyi wants you to be fully comfortable and confident in your decision – no question should go unanswered.
Do I have to be photographed?
Photographs are a necessary part of your medical record and can be helpful to both you and Dr. Somogyi throughout your consultation and treatment. Your photos will stay securely protected within your electronic medical record and will only be shared if you sign a specific consent to share photos for training and research purposes.
If your consultation is about areas of your face you are asked to minimize any makeup you put on – this will help with more accurate evaluation.
Can I be accompanied by a friend or a member of my family during my consultation?
You are more than welcome to bring a friend or a family member for your support. Often this is helpful to help you remember the many aspects of your treatment that are discussed during your consultation.
