I believe that honesty is far more important than salesmanship and relationships are built by being able to communicate openly with frankness and sincerity. As a patient,you know how important it is to you that you are heard, and the same is true for the physician. An important part of this dialogue is managing expectations, which is essential when it comes to Plastic Surgery. While we constantly strive for perfection, it is always just beyond our reach. You have to be honest with yourself about whether you can live with this, or perhaps there are ways other than surgery to meet your goals.
The hospital staff constantly comments on how exceptionally nice my patients are, and I absolutely agree! It is easy to be nice in a stressful situation when you are well prepared and are receiving the best care we can offer. Plastic surgery has an alluring reputation, but there is nothing very glamorous about the recovery process. Even though it may be considered “elective” or by choice, it is still real surgery with all of its hardships and potential complications. While this is what we do everyday, rest assured we will never forget it is perhaps a once in a lifetime event for you!
Healthy and well cared for skin looks radiant and beautiful. As skin ages, there are predictable changes that occur, and your genetics and lifestyle will influence their speed and severity. The medical and technological advancements available today allow for an array of effective options that can be individually tailored to treat your specific needs more safely and effectively than ever before.
A daily skin care regimen can protect you from ongoing damage, provide nourishment to repair vital structures, treat problems such as outbreaks and discoloration, and stimulate collagen growth.
Light-based skin treatments (BBL) can correct irregular pigmentation and redness, stimulate collagen, tighten skin, remove hair, and even treat acne.
Exfoliating or removing the outermost layers of your skin also gives a healthier and smoother appearance. This can be achieved chemically with skin care products and peels or physically with Clarisonic® cleansing and microdermabrasion.
Get progressively more aggressive with the Sciton MicroLaserPeel®, Contour™, and ProFractionalTherapy™ treatments. The flexibility of this laser is tremendous, allowing us to not only treat a variety of skin types and problems, but also enabling us to adapt treatments to fit your available downtime.
When it comes to injectables, our choices have never been better! Softening lines caused by facial expression and revolumizing the deflation and wrinkles that come with age can be a powerful rejuvenative tool that should not be underestimated.
