Your Consultation Appointment

We understand this is a lot of information to cover in a short amount of time. We encourage you to bring along a friend or family member to this appointment. Not only will they be able to support you, but they may be able to recall some information that you might’ve missed. It can be incredibly helpful to have someone to discuss your procedure with afterwards.
If you’re unable to make it into the clinic, Dr Doyle offers virtual consultations. Your consultation will be held on Skype and will cover the same information. If your initial consultation is done online, Dr Doyle requires you to see him in person before going ahead with your procedure. This will be to take your photos and measurements as well as to confirm that you’re still suitable for surgery.
What Information to Have Ready
To make the most of your consultation, we recommend you bring/have access to:
- A list of any current medications you're taking
- Any relevant medical records
- Before and after photos of patients that you like their results
- A list of questions you'd like to ask
We understand that you may be nervous about your appointment. However, the more information you can provide will help Dr Doyle understand your case better and develop a surgical plan tailored just for you.
After Your Consultation
After your consultation with Dr Doyle, you will have a much better understanding of the surgery you’re interested in, the potential risks and complications involved and how the surgery is performed. You will also have a good understanding of your expected recovery time and aftercare requirements.
Having access to all of this information can help you to make an informed decision about your surgery. If you have any more questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask. We want you to be comfortable and confident with your decision before going ahead with the surgery.
