8) What to ask your surgeon

What to expect during your consultation

For our clients coming from aboard, we may require a medical check up prior to coming to Sri Lanka. Here the client also has good opportunity to learn about anything the surgeon requires you to do beforehand, such as lose weight or other recommendations prior to surgery.

Pictures give an indication of the procedure area, but can’t always show exactly what may be required, so be prepared for the likelihood of additional or fewer treatments for combined surgeries at the face to face consultation with the surgeon.   Also if the hospital suspects you have not been truthful about your medical history, they may also decline your surgery booking.

Ideally, you should plan your surgery a least a month in advance in sure you have time to plan and follow any medical advice from the surgeon.

After the initial inquiry phone call or email has been made, and a formal quote for treatment received, the next step is the consultation process when you arrive in Sri Lanka, to allow the client and surgeon make their final recommendations for procedure(s) requested. The hospital will also issue their terms and conditions for your procedure, which you should be clear about, in order to know what is and is not included in their packages.

The success and safety of your procedure depends very much on your complete candidness during your consultation. You’ll be asked a number of questions about your health, desires and lifestyle.

Be prepared to discuss:

•    Why you want the surgery, your expectations and desired outcome
•    Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments
•    Use of current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drugs
•    Previous surgeries
•    Family history

Your surgeon may also:

•    Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
•    Examine you, and may take detailed measurements of your size and shape, skin quality, specific to your request of procedure
•    Take procedure are photographs for your medical record, before and after
•    Discuss your options and recommend a course of treatment
•    Discuss likely outcomes of surgery and any risks or potential complications
•    Discuss the use of anaesthesia during your surgery
