The RL Center Consultation Experience

Consultation Experience

The choice to receive any aesthetic treatment can be deeply personal, cosmetic surgery even more so. The goal of RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa is to provide a thorough consultation experience that will give you all of the information you need to make an informed decision.

During your first visit to our office, we start with a discussion to identify your desired outcomes and answer any questions you might have about the cosmetic improvement process.

Then, we conduct a medical examination to determine your candidacy for treatment and assess the severity of your concerns.

Before and after photos are a great way to provide context to our discussion and provide real-life examples of outcomes you may be able to expect.

We also make alternative recommendations if there are more appropriate procedures that more closely align with your goals, your budget, or your candidacy for treatment.

Once you have decided how you would like to proceed, we walk you through the process, including what to expect before, during, and after your treatment(s).

We will never hurry you, pressure you, or brush past your questions without a complete and honest answer. And we will never give you false information or put your health at undue risk.

Dr. Lu and his staff were professional, efficient and very friendly throughout the entire process. They addressed any concern I had and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed with any appointment and they made me feel like I was a priority.

On the day of the surgery, any nerves I had were reassured by the professionalism and experience Dr. Lu and his staff demonstrated. It was great getting a text from Dr. Lu the next day to see how I was doing, and knowing I could text him any time with concerns or questions.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lu for any cosmetic surgery, he’s the best in the area. I had gone to a plastic surgeon a couple years ago in Schaumburg and I had a totally different experience. The staff there seemed ‘bothered’ with questions I asked and the doctor made some troubling comments when I had expressed some concerns about my results. So when I met Dr. Lu, I knew I was making the right choice to have him do my surgery.
