From the horror stories on popular reality shows and celebrities’ widely publicized plastic surgery gone wrong, it can be challenging to choose the right plastic surgeon.
Here are four qualities of a great plastic surgeon and how you should make your decision:
- Honesty: It seems so logical and simple. Unfortunately, there are many plastic surgeons that only tell patients what they want to hear. These unrealistic expectations and lackluster results then make the patient unhappy. Dr. Max is upfront with patients from the start, suggesting procedures that will be effective and provide the results they want.
- Patience: Plastic surgery is a huge decision. Most patients don’t want to agree to a procedure right off the bat. It’s normal to think about the procedure for as long as you need. You should not feel pressured to make a decision because you are the one that has to live with the results.
- Accessibility: It’s not uncommon for plastic surgeons to offer a free consultation to attract patients. But once the initial consultation is over, patients will be billed for any additional questions. Dr. Max believes that giving patients as much information as possible involves time. This is why we schedule a second, free consultation, to patients who need more information to make a decision.
- Warmth: Too often, a patient is treated more like a commodity than a person. The plastic surgeons who want to get you in, schedule surgery, and off their plates is an assembly line approach that Dr. Max finds appalling. At MP Plastic Surgery, Dr. Max and his staff welcome patients with genuine warmth and treat them like friends or family.
Plastic surgeons will claim to achieve the best results with the latest techniques, but what about the patient’s quality of care? Dr. Max Pekarev believes that the foundation for a successful practice rests on both surgical technique and quality of care.
