Plastic Surgery and Well Being
Patients have expressed to me that undergoing a procedure whether it be an injectable or surgery that enhances their appearance improves their sense of well being. This had been documented in the literature with patients undergoing something as common as Botox injections. This is why it is so important to do the best that we can to live up to patient’s expectations. It also explains why some patients are so dissappointed when their expectations are not met. It is important for someone in this position to describe results as accurately as possible and to help patients to understand the limitations of what can be done with any procedure. We are not only making people look and feel better but fulfilling dreams.
