“It took a lot of mental energy to get to this point”
This is what one patient told me after spending two years thinking about plastic surgery, deciding what she thought she needed, and researching the Internet to find the best plastic surgeon to take care of her.
There is no doubt in my mind that there has been a dramatic increase in the level of anxiety associated with plastic surgery. First of all, it’s not fun showing your flaws to others, even a doctor. Worse yet, the media bombards the public with negative news about plastic surgery. It’s no wonder why patients are so anxious.
But it doesn’t need to be that way. This particular patient spent ample time on my website learning about me and my practice. I have designed my website to address the concerns of perspective patients. Am I the right doctor to take care of her? Do I have the best credentials and most experience? Am I someone who can be trusted to provide her with excellent care? Am I “the best” at what she is most interested in?
