It can be a challenge when patients consider their reasons for considering plastic surgery. First, patients have to decide if they want to have plastic surgery and then they have to decide who will perform the plastic surgery. Once these two decisions are made and the plastic surgery is performed most patients move on with their lives are happy with their results and their plastic surgery journey is over. But, what should a patient do when a friend or relative tells them that they look fabulous and ask them what they have changed? Should they tell their friend or relative about their facelift, breast augmentation and breast lift, liposuction? Dr. Seify understands that plastic surgery is a private and personal decision; however, there are some benefits patient should consider when deciding whether to tell a friend about their plastic surgery and their plastic surgeon. First, patient should consider how difficult their initial decision was. They should remember the research that was necessary, the questions and doubts that they had, and the anxiety this caused. If they were referred by a friend they should remember how appreciative they were for the referral and how much easier the decision was because of the referral. Also, if the patient is uncomfortable discussing the specifics of their procedure there is no need to do that. A general response to an inquiry from a friend or relative when questioned about what they have done is perfectly acceptable. General responses can be as simple as; thank you, I had a procedure performed, with a plastic surgeon and had a great experience. It is a good idea to offer the plastic surgeon’s name as a referral adding… If you’re interested. Referring friends and relatives to your plastic surgeon when you have had a good experience is part of contributing to the greater good. Not so long ago plastic surgery was a secret and few people felt comfortable telling others. Now that this is not the case it has allowed more women to have plastic surgery with confidence and to make better choices by having referrals from friends and relatives. It is about the greater good and each plastic surgery patient doing their part to make plastic surgery a more acceptable choice and for more patients to be able to experience similar great results. Dr. Seify and his staff are deeply grateful for referrals provided to them. Patients who are considering plastic surgery are encouraged to contact Dr. Seify and schedule a consultation.
