What is a Virtual Plastic Surgery Consultation?
Many of our out of town patients schedule a Virtual Consultation with Smart Shape Body Sculpting Clinic of Tampa . This allows you to discuss the procedure and gather information regarding the enhancement you desire. The Virtual Consultation is usually done by phone & Via- Email, but in some instances we can also arrange for a Skype chat. A Virtual Consultation usually lasts 25-45 minutes. We have been doing Virtual Consultations for years and patients have traveled to us from all over the U.S.
Before your Virtual Consultation, you will need to take photographs of the area you would like to enhance. Your photographs are then sent to our office for review so we can reference when we discusses the procedure with you. Please be assured that your photographs are highly confidential and will become part of your private medical record. Following the virtual consultation, you will be able to schedule a tentative surgery date pending Lab work and medical clearance If needed by your primary doctor.

Body Procedures Instructions and Photo Samples
1. Please take Photos in front of a plain background. For example, use a plain-colored wall or plain-colored sheet (white or blue is preferable) hung on a wall.
2. Photos should be taken from just below your chin to your feet. The whole torso area should be visible with no undergarments obscuring the area to be examined. Hands and arms should not be raised as this lifts the abdomen to an unnatural position. Do not “suck in” the abdomen as this also creates an unnatural position. Inhale and exhale out to completely relax your abdomen. Hands can rest on your hips with elbows bent naturally to the sides. Be as relaxed as possible for the best photo outcome.
3. Keep the camera angle straight forward. Do not angle down or up as this will also create an unnatural position/view of the abdomen area.
4. You will need to take your photos without any garments on; for example, no shirts covering the abdomen area.
5. A total of 8 images/views are needed: 1 front view shot, 2 quarter front turn shots, 2 side views, 2 quarter back turn shots, and 1 full back shot.
