With telemedicine, healthcare has been transformed. But no one would have thought that plastic or cosmetic surgery could benefit from this technology. Well, virtual consultation is now a practical option indeed. It has removed the emotional barrier for patients who could be hesitant about meeting a physician and getting consulted. It is also the ideal solution for patients who find it difficult to travel or want a preliminary opinion regarding their eligibility for a particular aesthetic procedure. bodySCULPT, a leading AAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice in NYC offers virtual consultation option for patients. In fact, they are one of the first practices to integrate real virtual consultation to provide a quick answer wherever you are in the world.
Patients can now enjoy the luxury of a one-on-one educational and informative consultation with non-physician staff members conveniently from their own homes. The purpose of the virtual consultation is to provide you with an opportunity to obtain more information about the plastic surgery procedure you wish to undergo, and to assist you in deciding whether to travel to the plastic surgery practice for an initial in-person consultation. This virtual consultation saves you precious time that you would otherwise spend traveling and re-arranging your schedule. It also enables you to learn more about the plastic surgery services offered at your preferred plastic surgery practices.
In addition, the virtual consultation enables us to obtain from you some preliminary information about your medical history and medical condition which our plastic surgeons can review subsequent to your virtual consultation but prior to your in-person consultation to help them determine your eligibility for plastic surgery treatments.
The advantages of a virtual consultation are:
- Flexibility of time and location to ask questions directly to a medical expert
- Response within 24 hours maximum
- Advice given in several languages according to your preference
- Discretion and data security
- Money and time savings
Of course, this is not a medical examination, which you will need before the surgery.
bodySCULPT provides effective virtual consultation. We continue to improve our patient access capabilities. We have improved our virtual consultation program to make it convenient for our patients to continue to keep in touch with us. That is, if you have a Windows, Apple or Android device with a camera, the procedure is simple.
- Step 1: State your preference for a VC (virtual consultation) on your contact form to us.
- Step 2: Our patient coordinator will then contact you with a date and time to schedule your virtual consultation.
If you do not have a camera on your computer, bodySCULPT can easily arrange an e-mail consultation with you. After conducting a virtual consultation, if you are still interested in obtaining any plastic surgery procedures, the next step would be to schedule an in-person consultation with one of bodySCULPT’s plastic surgeons.
