Your Consultation

Dr. Samaha consulting with a patientThe goal of the consultation is to provide the patient with clear, complete, and honest information in order to make a well-informed decision about facial plastic surgery in Montreal. This first meeting allows Dr. Samaha to understand the patient’s concerns and goals for esthetic improvement.

Similarly, the meeting allows the patient to meet the doctor and learn about his credentials, qualifications, as well as the results of his previous work. We ensure that sufficient time is scheduled to allow for a detailed discussion. Questions are welcomed and time is taken to insure that the consultation is not rushed and that no detail, regardless how small, is overlooked. The environment provided is comfortable, private, and professional.

Meet Dr. Samaha

Dr. Samaha consulting with a facelift patientThe consultation begins with a medical history and evaluation to ensure that facial esthetic surgery is medically safe. Then, the patient’s goals for esthetic improvement are shared with Dr. Samaha and the options available are discussed. Dr Samaha applies his specialized expertise to perform a thorough examination of the patient’s face, its proportions, and the interaction between the different facial components. With the aid of a mirror, he illustrates and explains to the patient the refinements and changes he feels would best suit the patient’s facial features. All recommendations are openly discussed to further obtain the patient’s input and wishes.

Dr. Samaha showing a patient a preview of their rhinoplasty resultsComputer imaging is performed for certain procedures (especially rhinoplasty and chin implants where computer imaging is of value) in order to show the patient an image of the potential result and insure it corresponds to her/his vision. Once the patient and Dr. Samaha are comfortable with the plan, the risks of the procedure are discussed.

The steps on the day of the procedure, and the method of anesthesia to be used are explained in detail during the consultation. The post-operative course is also explained thoroughly, including recovery time and precautions necessary to optimize outcome, comfort, and safety. Although written instructions and explanations are provided, Dr. Samaha and his staff prefer to personally communicate the information to the patient and provide them the opportunity to ask questions or discuss any concerns they may have.

If the patient has further questions after the initial consultation, they are encouraged to call the office. The patient’s knowledge, comfort and confidence in the procedure is of utmost importance.
