Plastic Surgery Questions
Dallas, Texas Cosmetic Surgeon
The decision to have cosmetic surgery requires a lot of thought and research. Below are a few of the most common questions we run across when meeting with new patients. Feel free to call our office for answers to any of your cosmetic surgery questions.
Has Dr. Rai done many procedures? Has he had great results?
Plastic Surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Rai has performed over 10,000 cosmetic surgery procedures to date. He is one of the most experienced surgeons in the area, and his amazing results speak for themselves. When you come in for you personal consultation, you'll have the opportunity to see a variety of before-and-after pictures to view the results of patients who've had the procedure you're interested in. Also, you may have the chance to speak one-on-one with people who've had Dr. Rai as their surgeon and ask them questions about their experiences.
What are some of the advantages of cosmetic surgery?
Dr. Rai specializes in cosmetic surgery because he believes that it offers his patients exceptional results with minimal scarring and faster healing. Cosmetic surgery procedures include breast augmentation, tummy tucks and forehead lifts.
Which procedure is right for me?
Depending on your personal goals, Dr. Rai may recommend an entirely different procedure or series of procedures than you had in mind. Our philosophy at Cosmetic Surgical Center is to operate only on the perfect candidates. If we don't think you'll have amazing results, we don't do it. We'll recommend whatever course of action will help you achieve your goals safely and effectively. After meeting with Dr. Rai, he'll give you his professional opinion on which procedure or procedures will work best for you.
What happens during the initial consultation?
During your first visit with us, Dr. Rai will meet with you to discuss the details of your procedure and address your individual needs. He will go over your health history, give you a thorough examination, and discuss the benefits and risks of cosmetic surgery. You will have the opportunity to view a collection of before-and-after photographs of former patients to see an approximation of your results.
Can I afford cosmetic surgery?
The cost of your cosmetic surgery procedure(s) will depend on a number of factors including time in surgery, difficulty of procedure, type of anesthesia used, and post operative medications prescribed. Cosmetic Surgical Center accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We work with a variety of finance companies and may be able to arrange financing for you based on your individual credit.
What are the risks involved with cosmetic surgery?
As with any type of invasive surgery, there are certain risks involved. Dr. Rai and his staff take the necessary precautions to ensure safe treatment for each patient. We arm you with complete knowledge of your procedure, so you know exactly what to expect throughout your cosmetic surgery experience. If we feel your outcomes might be anything less than ideal, we will advise against surgery.
What is the average recovery time for cosmetic surgery?
Each procedure offered differs in average recovery time. More invasive procedures may take anywhere from 1-2 weeks to heal, whereas less invasive procedures may only take a few days to get your body back to normal. Dr. Rai will address the specific recovery expectations of your procedure during your first visit. Also, factors such as your body type, age, and shape can play a large part in how quickly you recover from surgery.
How long will the results of my procedure last?
Each procedure is designed to have a lasting permanent effect on the chosen areas (excluding the naturally temporary procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic injections). The procedures cannot, however, prevent the implications of weight gain and aging. Keep in mind that each cosmetic procedure is designed to keep you looking your best, but you are required to do your part with diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
Does Cosmetic Surgical Center have a proven track record of happy patients?
During Dr. Rai's 20+ years of experience, he has helped thousands of women and men improve their bodies and their self-images with everything from facial cosmetic surgery to body contouring.
