For patients who plan to undergo any type of cosmetic surgery, there is always the possibility they will be dissatisfied with the results of the procedure. This can be an extremely difficult situation because it may have psychological effects and require further procedures to correct the perceived imperfections. However, patients can minimize the potential for general dissatisfaction by selecting a surgeon carefully and being clear about the desired results of the cosmetic surgery.
Surgeon selection is one of the most important factors in preventing general dissatisfaction resulting from cosmetic surgery. Many patients mistakenly select a surgeon based on price, as opposed to experience and skill level. This can be a dire mistake because the priority should be on the experience and skill level of the surgeon. A surgeon who has a great deal of experience performing similar procedures with a high level of success is very likely to be able to perform the procedure with a great deal of success in the future.
