An in-depth consultation is the first step of a successful plastic surgery experience for anyone considering one or more cosmetic procedures. You can expect to learn more about your best options according to your goals, lifestyle, and body type.
Dr. Agullo provides the following five plastic surgery consultation options:
No matter which consultation option you choose, rest assured that all the questions you have concerning surgical techniques, potential downtime, and result expectations will be answered.
Dr. Frank Agullo is a highly respected, board-certified plastic surgeon in El Paso, Texas, who’s been featured in popular publications and media, including The Aesthetic Guide, New Beauty Magazine, ABC7, NBC9, and KFOX14. He was also voted Best Doctor by Texas Monthly and RealSelf.
There is abundant information on the internet about how your desired procedure is performed, what the recovery period may involve, and even the various techniques available. However, a consultation is still necessary to create a customized surgical treatment plan that meets your goals according to your anatomy and circumstances.
For example, when a woman plans to undergo breast augmentation, she may already know what size, material, placement option, and incision type she wants.
However, if these choices are incompatible with her existing natural breast tissue, activity level, plans to breastfeed in the future, and other variables, alternative options may be in her best interest.
A plastic surgery consultation provides an opportunity for you to discuss your cosmetic concerns and allows Dr. Agullo to assess these areas in relation to the rest of your body or face.
Regardless of how the consultation is conducted, patients can expect to be asked about their medical history, receive a thorough review of all their procedure options, and learn the most appropriate recommendations to achieve their goals.
Dr. Agullo will also explain what to expect during recovery and how long it can take to see your final results.
If you have the time and transportation available to visit our El Paso plastic surgery facility, an in-person consultation is an optimal choice. This option will provide the following benefits for you and our surgeon:
An in-person consultation offers a more personal experience, and if you have anxiety about undergoing plastic surgery, it may help increase your confidence in our surgeon and the procedure.
If you want to save time traveling to and from your consultation, a virtual (video) consultation offers most of the same benefits as an in-person visit but may be more convenient for many women and men, including:
This option provides an opportunity to discuss one or more cosmetic concerns with Dr. Agullo from the comfort of your home or office and learn the best options to achieve your desired results.
A dedicated member of Dr. Agullo’s team will advise you on the materials he’ll need before your virtual consultation and coordinate the process. These items will include:
Photographs will be viewed immediately upon receipt to ensure they are sufficient and clear enough for Dr. Agullo to use in his assessment. He will also review all the information received prior to your consultation.
During your virtual consultation:
A virtual consultation makes it easier for busy people to see and talk to Dr. Agullo while getting a better understanding of what to expect before, during, and after plastic surgery.
Some individuals seeking plastic surgery may not have access to skilled, board-certified plastic surgeons with extensive experience in their chosen procedure (especially in rural areas). These patients are wise to travel for plastic surgery, making virtual consultations the most practical option.
Dr. Agullo caters to out-of-town plastic surgery patients, and his team can provide preoperative testing orders digitally or by mail to be completed before traveling to El Paso. We also help our traveling plastic surgery patients with finding comfortable, local accommodations.
A fast-track consultation is another convenient option offered by Dr. Agullo. While a virtual consultation involves a face-to-face meeting, this time-saving consultation also requires clear photographs to be sent to our office and the completion of a comprehensive medical and cosmetic questionnaire through our web portal or email.
The consultation itself is conducted by email. You can ask questions, explain your concerns, and discuss your goals with one of our clinical team members. Dr. Agullo will respond with answers and recommendations or may request additional clarification before advising you. This is an excellent option for patients who have had previous plastic surgery or are fully confident in Dr. Agullo and their choice of procedure(s).
Our knowledgeable and experienced nurse practitioner is qualified to consult with our plastic surgery patients, and this option offers a comfortable, individualized experience with all the benefits included in an in-person consultation. The nurse practitioner presents your case to Dr. Agullo for approval or modifications.
You may also choose a convenient video consultation with our nurse practitioner if this better suits your needs. This option involves the same process as a virtual consultation with Dr. Agullo. The nurse practitioner presents your case to Dr. Agullo for approval or modifications.
Dr. Agullo is committed to delivering the best plastic surgery results possible in El Paso, Texas, and values your time and financial investment.
