The first step – Consultation and Photography

Dr. Michael Bense will examine your areas of concern, and you will be advised of our findings. Information about your recommended procedure or treatment program will be provided to you. Relevant body areas will be carefully photographed.

Full Medical History

You can expect a thorough review of your medical history. Please bring a list of all allergies and current medications. You may be advised to discontinue use of some products before treatment or surgery. Dr. Bense will evaluate the following:

  • A discussion of your complete medical history
  • Disclosure of all medications or supplements
  • A thorough eye exam to identify any current conditions and prescriptions in case of iLIDLIFT™
  • A discussion of the risks and benefits of the procedure you are considering

Expectations

It is important to set realistic expectations about your results. Cosmetic aesthetic surgery cannot stop your body from aging or from potentially needing maintenance treatments in the future. We will discuss this at your consultation, recommending any future maintenance programs as part of the recommended plan for you.
