What to Expect in a Video Consultation

Our first concern at Desert Bloom Plastic Surgery is your safety. No matter what procedure our clients choose, we pride ourselves on offering the highest possible quality of care. Amidst COVID-19, we’ve strived to maintain this standard. Our response has been swift and direct to maintain your safety

We are open in our office following strict guidelines from the Utah Health Department to maintain a clean environment for our patients and staff. You will notice we are wearing masks and have increased even more our sanitation of the office.

We are continuing our access to video consultations in our office, which allows us learn about your goals, answer any questions, and build a personalized treatment plan. In short, it’s just like an in-person consultation with Dr. Wallin- only from the safety and comfort of your home!

Below, we’ve broken down what to expect from your video consultation. As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Wallin offers patients an extremely high level of specialization and expertise. Our entire team is here to help you in any way we can, whether that’s planning your next in-person visit or helping perfect your at-home skincare routine.

Before and Afters

At the beginning of your consultation, we’ll start by showing you several before and after pictures. These examples serve to give you a concrete understanding of Dr. Wallin’s craftsmanship and precisely what each procedure can provide in terms of results. It’s incredibly important to us that our patients have a realistic understanding of what is and isn’t possible through plastic surgery and non-invasive treatments.

Before and after photos are a great way to help you make an informed decision and figure out which procedures interest you most.

Determining Your Wants and Needs

Once you have a clear idea of what’s possible, Dr. Wallin will ask you to talk more about your wants, concerns, questions, and needs. Each patient who works with Desert Bloom gets a treatment plan that’s custom-built around their unique anatomy and goals.

It’s crucial to us that you feel heard and seen. We believe that there is no question or detail too small. The more we learn about you, the better able we’ll be to find a perfect solution.

Developing a Plan of Action

Next, Dr. Wallin will work with you to develop a plan of action that fits your unique needs, lifestyle, and budget. We’ll cover any procedure(s) that could be suited to addressing your concerns.

At this point, Dr. Wallin will help you weigh the benefits of various options and figure out whether shorter recovery times, more significant results, or landing somewhere in-between works best for you. We’ll go through each step of your proposed plan to clear up any remaining questions and provide all the info you’ll need to make your final decision.

Final Steps: Scheduling, Payment, etc.

Finally, we’ll review other important details such as payment and logistics. Depending on what procedure(s) you choose, scheduling can look very different. For non-invasive medical spa treatments at Oasis Aesthetics, you’ll generally just need to pick a date and come in ready to relax and rejuvenate. If you’re planning a more intensive operation like a facelift or rhinoplasty, we’ll plan any necessary follow-up screenings along with your procedure.

Dr. Wallin will go over the full post-op timeline and determine how long you should expect to be in recovery. We’ll also discuss pricing and possible payment plans to ensure your procedure fits your budget.
