It is important that you be thorough when providing the requested information as this will enable proactive and preventative care that will avoid complications during your surgery. When asked about medications, be sure to include any diet pills, vitamins, or herbal supplements since some vitamins and herbal medications can affect your blood pressure and clotting ability. Honesty regarding your smoking and alcohol use is also very important as these may have a profound impact on your recovery period and your ability to heal.
After reviewing your medical history, Dr. Agha will discuss your concerns, priorities, and motivations for pursuing plastic surgery. Dr. Agha will then examine you and assess your lower body contour. Dr. Agha will assess multiple factors, including the buttock form (see buttock types), the volume (surplus versus deficient), the contour (distribution of tissue within the buttock), laxity and sagging, and the skin quality and any dimples. He will also evaluate the structures that surround and present your buttocks. These include the back, flanks (love-handles), thighs, and saddle-bags. These areas can immensely alter the aesthetic features of your buttocks. For example, excessively heavy back and flank regions camouflage the V-shaped demarcation between your back and buttocks, and mask the buttocks’ degree of projection. Each of these components will determine which procedure is best for you.
He will subsequently provide you with information on different options and will explain the advantages and disadvantages of each procedure. Considering your input, Dr. Agha will plan an appropriate procedure to best suit your anatomy as well as meet your desires and expectations. You will then be provided with information regarding the potential risks and complications of each surgery.
