During your consultation you will be able to ask all the questions you have and to gain an assessment of your concerns. Mr Price will give you his honest opinion of your best course of action, even if that means not recommending surgery.
Mr Price usually takes photographs at each consultation – this is to help guide the consultation process and allows both you and him to determine where improvements can be made.
At the end of the consultation you are free to walk away – there is no obligation to proceed with surgery if you do not wish to, or if Mr Price does not feel that you would receive significant benefit.
