Let’s Talk About It: Sadrian Plastic Surgery Center Promotes Communication
When someone is considering plastic surgery, it is very important that this person understand exactly what the procedure will and will not do, the projected outcome in terms of recovery and final results and how much the procedure will cost. In fact, if every plastic surgery patient thoroughly understood these elements of surgery, and if every plastic surgeon took the time to listen to patient concerns about these issues, almost every misunderstanding could be avoided.
However, our busy lives sometimes cause us to rush through things without taking the time to really understand them. Dr. Sadrian and the staff at Sadrian Plastic Surgery Center pride themselves on their listening skills and their ability to establish good relationships with patients. This leads to better results and more satisfaction with plastic surgery procedures.
Dr. Sadrian’s Philosophy
Dr. Sadrian’s philosophy is relatively simple: he listens to patients and never encourages them to have surgery they do not need or want. In Dr. Sadrian’s terms, “There is no such thing as ‘routine’ plastic surgery.” Every case is different, and every patient must be listened to on his or her own terms.
Dr. Sadrian sees his job as being that of a skilled facilitator. Patients tell Dr. Sadrian what they want and he explains the pros and cons of every procedure and the expected outcome. By helping patients understand exactly how plastic surgery works, what to expect from a procedure and any risks or potential complications involved, Dr. Sadrian is able to help patients make informed decisions about plastic surgery. He then puts his skills to work to ensure a positive outcome.
Let’s Be Realistic
One of the biggest communication problems regarding plastic surgery is that patients have unrealistic ideas about what certain procedures can do. For example, many people believe that liposuction is a way to control weight, when in fact it has nothing to do with weight loss. Only diet and exercise can truly help a person lose weight; liposuction simply contours the body during or after weight loss. If a person comes into liposuction surgery believing it will make him or her “thin,” that person is bound to be disappointed.
This is why communication is so important. Dr. Sadrian and the staff at Sadrian Plastic Surgery Center in San Diego are ready to discuss all of your questions and concerns about cosmetic surgery to be sure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.
