Plastic surgery can be so great, but the negatives are far more often featured than the positives in the media. This can tend to scare the hell out of many potential clients. The very freely used term “botched plastic surgery” tends to lend the potential patient to believe that surgeons do the wrong thing by patients frequently. Well trained and ethical ones don’t.
Here are a few simple pointers to help lead you away from the land of the botched plastic surgery patient:
(1) Do not allow doctors trained in other specialties to do your plastic surgery.You wouldn’t go to a plumber to have your car fixed would you?
(2) Get your general health in order first. Smokers and others with health issues are far more likely to not heal well after even well-performed plastic surgery.
(3) Don’t pick Dr Cheapie. You wouldn’t go to “Pick and Save” for lobster would you?
(4) Avoid surgical marathons and the doctors who proscribe them like they are handing out an Aspirin.
These points have worked well in my practice for over a decade.
