Each patient must be individually evaluated to determine the surgical method that would produce an optimal result. During your consultation with Dr. Kraft, you can expect to receive information about the benefits and risks of various possible techniques, information on preoperative preparations and post-surgical outcomes. Since plastic surgery is a visually based field of medicine, visual media, including before and after photos of patients, medical texts and computer imaging, where applicable, are available to help patients make educated and informed decisions about surgery. The decision to undergo a cosmetic or reconstructive procedure is as much emotional as physical. If additional discussion is needed, a second consultation is encouraged to answer questions and resolve any uncertainties.
