Our PNW Plastic Surgery team can determine if plastic surgery is right for you by reviewing your medical history and your goals for treatment. If you’re interested in plastic surgery but not sure if you’re ready for it, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. During your one-on-one consultation, we answer all of your questions, including when is the right time to consider surgery.
From consultation to recovery, the body contouring journey can take several weeks. If you want to greet summer with a smile, now is the time to get started. We walk you through each step of your journey from consultation to prep to after-care and recovery.
