Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultation at Westlake Plastic Surgery Is Quickly Becoming The New Normal!

virtual plastic surgery consultation at westlake plastic surgeryIt was not too long ago that if patients wanted the advice and counsel of a plastic surgeon they would find someone in their area and arrange for an in-person consultation. Those days are quickly becoming rare. At Westlake Plastic Surgery, we have been using the concept of Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultation for over 5 years. Currently, almost 50% of the patients that I perform procedures on have been thoroughly consulted over the Internet!

What are the benefits of Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultations?

The benefits are enormous for most patients. It takes away the hassle of driving to the doctor’s office and possibly waiting for longer than you would like. The examination process can certainly be uncomfortable and embarrassing (though it shouldn’t be). The cost is FREE—my favorite F word. It’s done in the privacy of your own home on YOUR time. You’ll find out what I recommend and how much it will cost. What could be better than that? The most important information you will learn from an experienced plastic surgeon is available over the Internet. How cool is that?

How do I start my Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultation?

The process is quite simple. By going to my website ( you can access the Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultation form. Submit some photos (even ones taken from your phone), answer some questions and hit submit. Once I get the information, I’ll do my thing and get back to you. The service is safe, secure and confidential. I get over 15 Internet-based consultation requests from all over the world every day. It’s a great way for me to engage and help. For the most part, people aren’t familiar with the reality of plastic surgery and there are folks out there that will take advantage of you. I do not exploit patients. I am honest and ethical. I have a wonderful moral compass. I don’t sell—I educate.

There’s a revolution going on in the way people engage with the medical establishment. Here’s your chance to try it. I bet you’ll like it!
