As a facial plastic surgeon, I believe that patient satisfaction after cosmetic surgery depends on the surgeon’s skill and the patient’s expectations; however, plastic surgeons shouldn’t overlook the importance of quality care and compassion. Listening to patients and taking the time to really consider their concerns is perhaps just as important as results.
To ensure that your surgeon has the skill to give you beautiful results, check the surgeon’s credentials carefully and evaluate the photo gallery “before and after” images. A surgeon with years of experience performing plastic surgery understands how to respond to each patient’s unique concerns. In addition, that surgeon knows how to meticulously create a treatment plan to achieve the aesthetic results you desire. An experienced surgeon typically has a wealth of techniques and approaches that a less qualified individual may not have.
When I perform tummy tuck, face lift, or breast augmentation in Champaign, IL, I take the time to listen to my patients and find out what their motivations and goals for plastic surgery are. By taking this time, I can understand my patients more thoroughly and provide the cosmetic results that they want.
