We will always set up appointments within a reasonable time frame but if timing is a pressing concern, please let us know so that we may accommodate you. We can also do consultations through Skype, which serves to make the procedure much more efficient by eliminating unnecessary delays. Dr. Choi specializes in nasal and facial plastic surgery and when patients are looking for body procedures, Dr. Choi can arrange for one to meet specialists in those areas. Facial and Body surgery procedures can be performed simultaneously, which will cut down on both the time needed for the surgeries and the cost. The surgeons whom Dr. Choi will recommend are very qualified physicians; Dr. Choi has been personally involved in joint procedures and is satisfied with their surgical skills.
Call 1-323-965-1717 today to schedule your appointment.
During the consultation Dr. Choi will discuss your desires, examine the condition you wish to have corrected, and give you a qualified opinion of what Dr. Choi feels can be accomplished. Photographs are taken and mirror imaging is used during the consultation. Patients, who wish to have the surgery as soon as possible, should let Dr. Choi know so he can reserve a time in our schedule. In some cases a tentative surgery date may be reserved by phone when the consultation appointment is made. Dr. Choi prefers that prospective patients send photographs prior to consultation, which depict facial features they wish to have corrected. The doctor then analyzes those photographs and will conduct telephone interviews prior to the face-to face consultation. This too shortens waiting times and often avoids unnecessary travel. If other surgeons (or consultants) are needed, an appointment with the appropriate consult can often be arranged at the same time.
At the time of your visit, we will complete your medical history, finish any necessary paperwork and make special instructions in preparation for your surgery. A through consultation takes time, so plan to be at the clinic for a couple of hours. At the conclusion of your consultation we will prescribe the preoperative medications discussed later on and give you some additional instruction in preparation for your operation. It has been our experience that much of the anxiety patients often experience in regard to having surgery is relieved by having this conference.
