There are many factors for patients to consider when trying to select the right plastic surgeon to perform their cosmetic surgery procedure. Obviously, it’s imperative to find a reputable, board-certified plastic surgeon with considerable experience performing your specific surgery. However, it’s important to remember that providing great aesthetic results is only one part of a plastic surgeon’s duties when working with patients. A great plastic surgery practice sets themselves apart from the competition by making their patients comfortable, safe, and informed from their initial consultation through their recovery process and beyond.

The bond between a plastic surgeon and their patient is a special one. It’s something I personally take very seriously. My goal has always been to get to know my patients and truly understand their aesthetic concerns and how a plastic surgery procedure may be able to help. After all, it’s important for myself and the patients I work with to feel as if we are on a team, striving towards a common goal. Trust, good chemistry, and communication are critical. Here at Southern Plastic Surgery, we offer complimentary plastic surgery consultations to help establish an immediate sense of commitment and inclusiveness with every patient we see.

If you don’t feel that you have complete trust and confidence in the plastic surgeon during your consultation, it may be time to take a step back and reevaluate your options. In the following video, I discuss how my staff and I go the extra mile to ensure that every plastic surgery patient we see has the best experience possible at Southern Plastic Surgery:

Maintaining a positive attitude and realistic expectations is important for anyone who undergoes plastic surgery. By building and maintaining a bond with my patients, my hope is that I am able help them reach this level of optimism and feel assured and confident in the days before their procedure.
