Schedule A Consultation
Meet Dr. Lori Cherup
During your consultation with Dr. Cherup will ask you many questions as she reviews your medical history and medications. Are you healthy enough for us to consider any plastic surgery? She will examine you carefully, in private, while you are clad in a comfortable terry robe. Given her vast medical knowledge and experience, she will then formulate a plan for surgery that will address your problem area but may also be more inclusive then you thougt.
You will be informed of the specific risks of your surgery. In general, the healthier you are, the risks are minimized. The importance of stopping aspirin and ibuprofen, vitamin E and other medications prior to surgery will be stressed. And if you smoke - don't worry - we will absolutely get you to stop, forever.
We will show you before and after photos of the hundreds of previous patients that have undergone procedures similar to those you and Dr. Cherup are contemplating. By showing you patients who are very physically similar to you, you will be able to visualize the kind of surgical result Dr. Cherup will be able to deliver for you.
Before you leave from your first consultation, Kristy, our patient coordinator, will give or mail to you your Inform/Consent Book. This is your Bible! Read every word because Dr. Cherup wants you to understand all the inside information on your procedure, and will be asking YOU questions when you return. After scheduling your return visit, you will probably want to go home and contemplate all the information you received. Dr. Cherup is not one of those surgeons who wants to hurry you to sign on the dotted line. She wants you to accomplish YOUR goals. Is this procedure right for you? Does it financially make sense at this point in your life? Do you trust Dr. Cherup as a surgeon? You should. Most importantly, are you capable of being a good patient so we can have a platform for a successful surgery?
You will then be ready for your second, no charge consultation. Dr. Cherup will answer any remaining questions, go over the surgical plan, perform a pre-op history and physical, and take photos. You will spend 20 minutes with our Patient Care Coordinator reviewing your consent and pre-operative instructions. Over the next few weeks we will review your lab results and EKG in preparation for the big day when we will see you at your surgery. You are almost there!!!
