I'm surprised they are not making you go through the whole process as all other revisions had to. As to when you see the surgeon, depends on the centre.  At Humber they meet with the surgeon twice.  At other centres like TWH, you meet the surgeon just before surgery.

I am in Ottawa and my surgical consult was the last thing I did. I got my optifast that same day and my date two weeks later. Good luck

I am in Ottawa as well and I know that because i am having a revision done, they treat it as a individual bases.  It is going to be very interesting. Thanxs
