Making The Most of Your Consultation
Here at Dr Warwick Nettle, we understand that choosing to have plastic surgery is a big decision. Nowadays there is a procedure or treatment for just about every body part you’d like to enhance and the choices can be a bit overwhelming.

Our goal at Dr Warwick Nettle is to make your visit to us as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. We want you to leave feeling looked after, listed to and reassured.
The consultation is your chance to get to know your surgeon and assess their skills in the particular procedure you are considering. It’s a chance to get all your questions answered and make an informed decision. We want you to know that you are in good hands at Dr Warwick Nettle and a consultation is the best way to prove this.

On the day of your consultation, our friendly reception staff Sally and Marika will check you in and offer you complimentary refreshments. You may have to fill out some brief paperwork at this stage so we advise you to arrive at least 10 minutes early. Our reception has plenty of comfortable seating with fantastic views overlooking the city and coastline. You will have the opportunity during this time to look through our before and after portfolios or flick through our iPads containing all necessary procedure information. We strongly advise you take advantage of this opportunity, as patient images are one of the most revealing tools to show surgeons skills. We also advise that you jot down any questions you may have in advance so you don’t forget anything important when your with the surgeon. When the surgeon is ready to see you one of our medical assistants will bring you to the consultation room.
This is when you will meet Dr Warwick Nettle who will get a full understanding of what your concerns are and your goals for your surgery. For cosmetic procedures, we have 3D Imaging that will show you the possibilities of what you will look like after surgery. Dr Nettle believe’s that an educated patient is a happy patient, and will give you all the time needed to answer any questions you have. You can expect that the consultation will last about 45 minutes depending on how many different surgical options you are interested in.
After your consultation our booking coordinator will discuss your payment options with you. Be sure to ask for any brochures or paperwork available so you can read over it in more detail later if necessary.

If you need more time to weigh up your options, we completely understand and encourage you to think it over and call the office when you are ready. Our goal during the consultation is to give you all the tools you need to make a decision on whether plastic surgery is right for you. You have as long you need to consider your options.
