The Consultation with your surgeon is critical! I believe it is critical because it is during the consultation that I come to fully understand my patients…their real, individual concerns, their goals and dreams and am able to tailor the right treatment plan to meet their specific needs. Each patient is an individual…unique in every way and I do not use “cookie cutter procedures!”
Honesty, Trust and Respect evolve out of the consultation during which ….the patient speaks openly, the surgeon responds honestly and they either like each other or not. Mutual respect and trust are critical components that must be there in order for a healthy Dr./Patient relationship to move forward.
Each patient should be educated about their options and outcomes. Educated patients are generally happy…and feel empowered to make the right decisions.
Since aging shows up differently on each person, seeing the predicted results on their own body… really makes a difference. For this reason… my patients love the Vectra 3D computer Imaging Program because it shows you outcomes with several procedures.
OK…so now you know a little more about the consultation. Also, Doing a thorough health history helps me rightly evaluate your aging process and enables me to show you why a certain procedure or combination of procedures would work best for you.
MORE ON TUMMY TUCKS, LIPOSUCTION…and the Truth about Crunches!
Well, it can happen to all of us…those stubborn pockets of fat in the stomach that just won’t bulge. What used to be a nice flat, firm tummy has become riddled with tiny bulges that just won’t go away…in spite of healthy diet and rigorous exercise.
The truth about crunches is that they work more on the muscles and not on the fat! That’s why people get discouraged and line up for “liposculpting” to get the tummy they had before arriving at their current, dignified ages, or the Pre…Baby Body, or the Hot, sexy body of youthfulness…lean, mean and trim men love liposculpting as do new mommies, and “Seniors” who are aging together “more youthfully.”
LIPOSUCTION…THE GOLD STANDARD…for treating stubborn fat on and around the stomach. I covered some of this in my last blog. But this is important enough to repeat…to update and encourage people who may have had an experience with Liposuction…and are leary of it today. Here’s the “skinny” on lipo: http://davinciplastic.com.
- Lipo is the most studied method of fat removal with lots of data
- Lipo today is safe, much more comfortable and gets terrific results
- Patients enjoy smoother, more predictable results with my advanced lipo techniques and state of the art refined instruments
- Liposuction is one part of the guaranteed solution for a bulging tummy…Tummy Tuck is the other part.
TUMMY TUCK…will lift and tighten muscles, repair separations following pregnancy and/or years of weight gain and aging. Diet is always important and exercise is great for muscle strengthening…but only surgery can remove excess, baggy skin and repair disrupted muscles. Tummy Tuck works….people of all ages are getting healthy and in shape again… with a Tummy Tuck. Tummy Tuck removes the bulge that won’t otherwise budge!
New blog in a few days…new material…on age reversing treatments for 2013. Watch for it.
Come on in and lets get you healthy and trim so you can look and feel your absolute best!
