When a patient comes in to discuss their facial rejuvenation options with Dr. Eric Okamoto, they can expect a unique consultation that revolves around their individual concerns. Since every patient has different needs and patterns of facial aging, Dr. Okamoto asks the patient what they are most concerned with and what they would like to see improved. While examining the targeted areas, he will address what the patient has expressed and also ask if they would like to hear what he sees. With their consent, Dr. Okamoto will provide his professional opinion of the most significant areas that he believes are aging the patient’s face.
Before Dr. Okamoto can determine the most appropriate solution, the patient must first decide whether they are interested in solely non-surgical treatments, like BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers, or are open to surgical options, like the facelift or browlift, as well. From here, our experienced plastic surgeon can direct the conversation to the most beneficial treatments that apply to the patient’s specific goals.
Ultimately, Dr. Okamoto strives to create a treatment plan that stays consistent with what the patient desires and what they are able or willing to do. This includes balancing such concerns as cost, downtime, and risks with what a specific procedure can help the patient achieve.
