A WORD FROM OUR STAFF
“A sound mind in a sound body, is a short, but full description of a happy state in the World: [one] that has these two, has little more to wish for; and [one] that wants either of them, will be little the better for anything else.”
– John Locke –
IS PLASTIC SURGERY RIGHT FOR YOU?
Choosing to have plastic surgery is a big decision. Most reasonable people who seek plastic surgery have long considered the process and wish to make safe changes in their appearance. The reasons they seek an elective operation are many. Whatever your personal reasons may be, it is important before proceeding that you consider both the advantages and the disadvantages.
It remains a truism that plastic surgery can transform your body in ways unparalleled by other options. Amongst the benefits of cosmetic surgery are one’s enhanced self-esteem along with one’s improved self-image and restoration. Quality of life, not just vanity, is at the core of the decision-making for the vast majority of plastic surgery patients. Simply said, for some it is a matter of feeling good in your own skin. Perhaps you feel your nose is too large and that rhinoplasty may be the road to improvement. Perhaps you have wrinkles that make you feel old and you want to achieve the restorative effects of facelift or neck-lift surgery. Whatever the reason, the emotional rewards from plastic surgery can often outstrip the physical ones.
Of course, the contrary can be said when a patient’s expectations are unmet and emotional disappointment overshadows a decent result that has not lived up to a patient’s preconceived notions. This could be due to the basic limitations of nature itself, vagaries of healing, or even unrealistic expectations. That said, millions of people have achieved personal life goals with the aid of plastic surgery.
Dr. Minoli recognizes that secondary plastic surgery likely occurs in at least 10% of cases worldwide. In other words, every plastic surgeon under the sun & moon deals with healing issues. Dr. Minoli maintains a fair policy in dealing with secondary procedures. A good mutual rapport between the patient and the doctor (‘a two-way street’) is often the key to a patient’s eventual satisfying result.
Dr. Minoli is a board-certified Las Vegas plastic surgeon who believes that a surgeon spending time with patients & actively listening to them are hallmarks of quality care.
