You can think of yourself as a student of cosmetic surgery. When you
embark on your studies, you often have one treatment in mind. For example,
a prospective patient may feel that she needs one specific treatment- for example laser treatment
for her wrinkles. It is my job to educate her about options that she may have not considered.
She might be an excellent candidate for Botox, or eyelid surgery, and I will not hesitate to
tell her about other options, smaller ones and larger ones, their
capabilities and what to expect from each procedure.
Patients often come out of their consultation with a broader perspective than when they went in.
They have the information they need to make their decision.
