When considering plastic surgery, you need to seek the expert advice of a trusted, professional plastic surgeon. At the office of Dr. Afifi, we strive to ensure our patients are knowledgeable in their choices. There are a few things to look for when choosing the right surgeon for your specific treatment.
A surgeon should offer a first consultation with a new patient. This, in particular, is the most important thing for Dr. Afifi. The consultation allows our experienced surgeon to understand and learn more about her patients. Conducting a consultation creates a discussion on previous medical history, the specific goals you wish to achieve with plastic surgery, and your concerns about certain procedures. Dr. Afifi lets patient do the talking and then offers the best recommended treatments that achieve their aesthetic goals.
Recommendations and Feedback
A surgeon should give feedback and new ideas. For example, a patient may have a set goal: to gain larger breasts and a slimmer figure. Patients know what they want but don’t know how to best get it. Online research may lead them to different ideas about the types of services they think will best help them.
However, as useful as research is, it is not the same as professional recommendations. With responsive guidance, Dr. Afifi helps the patient get what they want in the way that best suits them. She offers various surgical treatment plans, whether combining procedures and techniques or recommending one option over another.
Whole Body Perspective
Many times, patients come in with a specific procedure to achieve their ideal body shape. Whether this is due to discussion and experience from friends and family or their own research, it is important to consider a patient’s entire image.
Surgeons should look at the whole body, aside from the singular area of desired alteration. If a patient is seeking a Brazilian butt lift but their main concern is to attain an hour glass figure, a full body lift may be a better option. Dr. Afifi looks at the entire body and your main concern before suggesting procedures.
No Salesmen Surgeons
Surgeons should not be a salesperson. If you find during your consultation that the surgeon is suggesting procedures without considering your own ideas, they may be trying to sell you plastic surgery.
There is a strong difference between guidance based on your concerns and salesman tactics. Dr. Afifi is very high uncompromised in doing right by her patients. Patient trust is a key priority for her; the fact that may patients are referrals speaks to her dedication to optimal client care.
Seek a professional who is trusted by her clients and has your overall goal in mind when it comes to achieving the ideal body and face shape. Contact the plastic surgery office of Ghada Y. Afifi, MD, FACS today.
