Why Can’t I Have the Surgery I Asked For?
Many patients come into our office requesting specific plastic surgery procedures to address their concerns. Unfortunately, when an individual does not meet candidacy requirements for the procedure they have expressed interest in, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani advises against it. Fortunately, a one-on-one patient consultation can allow Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani to recommend an alternative treatment whenever possible, including non-surgical options. In the consultation, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani can learn more about what the patient wishes to accomplish with aesthetic surgery. Based on the patient’s desired outcomes, he can suggest the treatment(s) or procedure(s) that may best achieve the patient’s goals safely and effectively. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani also believes it is important to provide patients with realistic expectations — if the requested procedure is likely to cause complications, is not appropriate for attaining the patient’s goals, or the patient exhibits symptoms of body dysmorphia, it is his moral obligation to advise against surgery.
If you are seeking a specific plastic surgery procedure, please contact our office to learn more or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani for customized information that can help you discover whether or not the procedure is right for you.
