Consult the doctor

copeland_client_computer_5660When it comes to plastic surgery, every person has different hopes, expectations, and fears. And so every patient requires a personal consultation.

Dr. Copeland will begin by talking to you about your goals—why you’re considering a procedure and what kind of options you have, as well as what sort of outcome you should expect. Using state-of-the-art digital imaging, she’ll help you visualize how you might be able to change your looks. The doctor’s knowledge and experience—combined with realistic visual images of the projected result—will help you make an informed choice. If additional discussion would be helpful to you, Dr. Copeland encourages you to have a second consultation, which may include family members or significant others.

Cosmetic surgery is about feeling good about yourself, and the decision to have a cosmetic procedure is as much an emotional one as it is physical. With help from Dr. Copeland and her caring staff, you can be sure you’ll make a decision you’ll feel good about on all levels.
