Castellano Cosmetic Surgery in Tampa announces it is now offering free consultations to patients interested in cosmetic surgery procedures including liposuction, breast augmentation and more.
Online PR News – 02-December-2012 – Tampa is a city in the U.S. state of Florida. – Tampa, Florida (November 2012) – Castellano Cosmetic Surgery Center (http://www.castellanocosmeticsurgery.com) is now offering free consultations to patients seeking cosmetic surgery in Tampa. The offer applies to all procedures performed at the Center, including breast enlargement, liposuction, tummy tuck, facelift procedures and more.
"I'm pleased to offer free consultations for patients," says Dr. Joseph J. Castellano, founder of the practice. "The consultation is a vital part of the surgery process. It's where the patient and surgeon get to better know one another as well as what the expectations are. It's also the time when there can be a frank discussion about the patient's needs and the best options available for those needs."
Dr. Castellano says that there are several important things to keep in mind during a consultation to ensure a successful meeting. Above all, the patient should come into the meeting knowing the answers to important questions such as if they have any important health concerns about which the surgeon should be aware, or why the patient wants cosmetic surgery in the first place.
"Tampa is my home, and I want what's best for the community. I want to make it as easy as possible to get professional information and guidance about cosmetic treatments," notes Dr. Castellano. "People have different reasons for wanting to change how their body looks, but sometimes they're not the right reasons. For example, liposuction can be a fantastic choice for men and women who want to improve their body shape, but it is not a quick fix for being overweight."
Second only to breast enlargement in Tampa, liposuction is one of the most popular procedures performed in the city. Dr. Castellano has seen many patients with stubborn fat deposits that don't seem to go away, regardless of exercise and a proper diet. In those cases, liposuction is often the right option.
"Many people aren't aware if they're eligible for a certain type of cosmetic surgery, such as liposuction," says Dr. Castellano. "Our free consultations will give patients the ability to learn about a procedure and see if it's the right one for their needs, all without any financial risk. It's a win-win for everybody involved."
When going in for a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Castellano would like to remind patients about the importance of asking questions. Patients should inquire into the cosmetic surgeon's background, such as education and training, as well as experience in the particular procedure of interest. And because all surgeries have an inherent level of risk involved, it's also important to discuss the risks and possible complications that may occur. This will help the patient make an educated decision on whether or not to undergo the procedure, as well as to prepare the patient on what to do should a complication arise.
"The patient's most important responsibility during a consultation is to get informed and ensure he or she is comfortable with the surgeon," says Dr. Castellano.
