Online Consultation – Information About Liposuction Surgery and More in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Dr. Dennis J. Hurwitz, and Dr. Agha feel that successful plastic surgery begins with choosing the right candidates. Liposuction surgery is not the right choice for every patient who visits our Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania office. In order to be a good liposuction candidate, a person should be ready emotionally, physically, and financially.

Because our liposuction surgery patients often come from far beyond Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Dr. Hurwitz has developed an online screening consultation. This screening will help you to determine whether liposuction is a good plastic surgery option for both your body type and your goals.

Realistic Expectations

It is important to understand that although body contouring techniques such as liposuction can dramatically change your silhouette, they cannot achieve dramatic weight loss or help you to be more successful in your social or business dealings. Liposuction and other types of plastic surgery should rather be seen as a step toward an overall physical goal that includes a healthy lifestyle. Patients who approach liposuction with a healthy, positive attitude are very likely to be pleased with their results.

Medical History

Plastic surgery should only be attempted by people whose bodies are healthy enough to cope with the rigors of surgery and the healing process. Whether your consultation with Dr. Dennis J. Hurwitz, is in person or online, it is essential that you provide him with a complete medical history, including:

  • Past surgeries, both general and cosmetic
  • List of medications you are currently taking
  • Any past or existing conditions that might affect the success of plastic surgery

If you have an illness or chronic condition that might lessen the chances of successful liposuction surgery, Pittsburgh surgeon Dr. Hurwitz will ask you to obtain permission from your internist before moving forward with plastic surgery.

Financial Readiness

The cost of liposuction depends on the number of areas you choose to have treated, as well as the amount of contouring you wish to be done in each area. Since health insurance companies rarely cover the cost of plastic surgery, you must be prepared to carry the full cost of your procedure.

Pricing varies among individuals; Dr. Hurwitz will be able to give you a cost estimate after your initial consultation.
