Your consultation with Dr. Undavia is a chance not only to discuss your goals, but also to get to know Dr. Undavia. It is important that you feel comfortable with your surgeon, because it truly is a life long relationship. During your consultation, please be prepared to discuss your medical history, as it is important in making a plan of action. Dr. Undavia will carefully examine all the aspects of your face and neck, not only for cosmetic concerns, but also for all medical and functionally related issues. Pictures are typically taken, not only for documentation, but to help show you realistic goals for your surgery or procedure. Dr. Undavia commonly uses facial imaging software to help morph the pictures he has taken. These pictures help provide important information to both you and Dr. Undavia about the goals of surgery. They can also be used to help point out limitations that might be present.
For years, Dr. Undavia has used virtual consultations (Telemedicine) for his patients that have traveled outside New Jersey to see him. He has had patients from Alaska and Northwest Canada to Texas come see him for his expertise. Typically, his patients fly in the day before surgery after initially having a virtual consultation and scheduling their procedure. Depending on the nature of treatment, patients can then travel back home immediately after treatment or within a few days. As times have changed, Dr. Undavia has more extensively developed his virtual consultation procedure. We are now offering this method of consultation to our local patients as well. D. Undavia’s team is comfortable with it and it’s easy to take advantage of. Using our new platform, the virtual consultation is 100% HIPAA compliant, private, informative and most important EASY. With one click of a link that has been emailed or texted to you (on the device of your choice), you’ll be connected with Dr. Undavia.
Below is a series of images of a patient of Dr. Undavia’s. The picture on the left represents her original image, while the middle picture represents the “morphed” image to help show the patient what a realistic goal of surgery was. The far right picture represents the real postoperative result. These pictures however, can only be done in office and not through the virtual platform.
