Wrinkles are no stranger to most women and are often one of the key ageing indicators that can drag our face down, adding years to our look. From squinting to smiling, added to the natural ageing process, wrinkles can appear … Continue reading
When you are considering Plastic or Cosmetic Surgery, there are bound to be numerous questions circulating in your head. From basic ones like will it hurt to how long is recovery and how much will it cost, the important thing is that you do get all your questions and queries answered so that you make an informed decision.
Many FAQs have questions that sound good but don’t work well for you. You ask them but those answers don’t help you know what to do and they don’t give you a gut feel for whether you have trust in and want to work with this Plastic Surgeon.
Here Dr Edinburg reveals his insight as to what you really need to find out in order to get a good idea about the doctor, his/her practice, as well as their level of service, expertise and professionalism.
1. CHECK WHO’S DOING WHAT
“Once you’ve decided on who your Plastic Surgeon is going to be, make sure you check with him/her who will administer your anesthesia. Don’t be shy about confirming their qualifications (is he is Specialist Plastic Surgeon) and the type of anaesthesia you will be getting. This is your body and you have every right to know. The same applies with checking your Plastic Surgeon’s credentials.”
2. GET REAL ABOUT THE PAIN FACTOR
“Most patients I get are always keen to know the level of discomfort and pain involved with surgery. This is where your Plastic Surgeon must be completely honest with you so that you can set realistic expectations. The truth is, some procedures will be more uncomfortable than others whilst others may surprise you in being barely painful at all. The key is being honest from the start – something I always do with my patients.”
Cosmetic Injections and cosmeceutical-grade skin care products are great for an anti-ageing boost but for those looking for longer-lasting results and more noticeable change in restoring a youthful look, I would recommend Face Lift Surgery.
I have patients inquiring about mini Face Lifts and lunch-time Face Lifts. These are terms for superficial Face Lifts, which, in my experience, are a poor solution to most patients’ problems. With all my Face Lifts, I use the ‘SMAS deep plane technique’ – a term that many patients have trouble understanding.
The thought of undergoing Rhinoplasty or more commonly referred to as Nose Job Surgery can often provoke many internal worries for patients. This is absolutely normal because it is a procedure that requires significant thought prior to going ahead and at Eden Institute. My role is to ensure my patients are well-informed beforehand so that they can make a decision they are completely comfortable with.
Over the past 20 years, I have performed countless Rhinoplasty procedures and I have come to find that most patients have similar concerns during the consultation stage. Below are three of the top enquiries I get when it comes to Nose Job Surgery…
I’m unsatisfied with my nose but I’m worried surgery will change my appearance completely.
There is a common misperception that undergoing Rhinoplasty will change your entire face to the extent you will be unrecognisable to family and friends. It is important to know that a successful Nose Job Surgery will only seek to enhance your existing beauty by making subtle changes to your nose, ultimately improving but not changing your overall appearance. At the Eden Institute we believe in results that are natural-looking and so when it comes to your nose, my role is to improve its appearance in a way that is harmonious with your other facial features in order to ensure a balanced and proportionate look overall. Final outcomes should be effective and noticeable but not dramatic in that you will be unrecognisable.
