A recent article on Women’s Health offers individuals contemplating a plastic surgery a number of important questions to answer before they obtain a procedure, including queries regarding exactly what they want to change about their appearance and why. That’s a good thing because medical experts agree that it is vitally important for patients to fully understand their procedures and for doctors to communicate clearly and honestly prior to a plastic surgery. There are a number of reasons why this is important, including:
1.Ensuring a positive outcome. Before a procedure can go forward, it’s vital for doctors to have a clear idea of the patient’s medical history. Yes, plastic surgeries such as breast augmentation, facelifts, and rhinoplasty have never been more safe and effective. At the same time, however, they are still complex procedures that require a great deal of medical knowledge as well as the ability to sculpt features that are as flattering as possible to a patient’s overall appearance. This means that the patient’s choice of the right medical provider is crucial; it also means that it’s extremely important that the doctor have all the important information in hand.
2. Making sure patients are happy with their results. Another reason it’s vital for plastic surgeons and their patients to communicate clearly and openly is to ensure patients fully understand just what kind of results they can expect once their procedure is completed. It’s entirely understandable that patients might have high hopes for the outcome of a procedure, but there are some limitations on what even the finest plastic surgeon can achieve. That’s why it’s important for patients and doctors to have a detailed discussion regarding what to expect once they have fully recovered from a procedure. Thanks to the emphasis of BHP doctors on communication and their outstanding performance during procedures, our patients are consistently very satisfied with their outcomes.
