How you pick your cosmetic plastic surgeon is very important. Your surgeon should be board certified in Plastic Surgery. He or she should also have approved hospital privileges to perform the procedure you desire.
Dr. Semlacher’s credentials fully satisfy these requirements.
The ideal candidate for cosmetic plastic surgery is someone who has a strong self image as well as a desire to change the thing about their appearance that bothers them.
During your consultation with Dr. Semlacher, he will ask you about which surgery you are considering and your expectations. Dr. Semlacher will also discuss with you whether the results you hope for can realistically be achieved. Be sure to discuss your expectations frankly with Dr. Semlacher; this will allow him to determine if he can surgically deliver what you want.
You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received, plus previous surgeries and a list of all the medications you take. It is important that you to be honest with our staff about your medical history, medications, allergies, habits and background since all these things can affect the outcome of your surgery.
Dr. Semlacher feels it is very important to have a good and communicative relationship with each patient. Your initial consultation will give you an opportunity to discuss everything that is involved in the surgery you are considering. The consultation also gives you a chance to meet comfortably and talk with Dr. Semlacher. You should feel very comfortable with him, both as a surgeon and a person. This will ensure that your cosmetic surgery experience is a positive one.
