Cosmetic Surgery: A Surprising Valentine’s Day Trend

fit tummyValentines day is arguably the one day of the year that women are most concerned with the way they look. Perhaps it’s not so surprising that plastic surgeons across the country experienced an exponential spike in consultations and procedures in the months before the holiday of love.

Specifically, there seems to be more of a correlation between the holiday and women’s desire for quick fix procedure such as Botox .

However, one invasive procedure in particular seemed to outshine all other procedures this past year. It could be because, even though liposuction is technically considered an invasive procedure, recovery is generally pretty short for people with good overall health. Depending on the expanse of work done and the Las Vegas plastic surgeon chosen, you can be in an out of the procedure ready for your Valentine’s date in just a couple of days.

Of course, this heightened success rate also depends on how much contouring you’re looking to have done during your procedure. It can be expected that, the more you want to sculpt and shape your body, the longer recovery time you can anticipate.

Now that Valentine’s day has passed, plastic surgeons should be returning to their normal schedules. So, it is actually a great time to schedule a consultation to discuss how you’d like to improve your body. Just call 702.410.9800 today to speak with an experienced plastic surgeon trusted around the Las Vegas valley.

Testimonials of a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Board Certified Plastic Surgeon - Las Vegas Top Doctors 2015When it comes to the world of plastic surgery, no one wants to take chances. Thankfully, the truth is, you don’t have to with a board certified plastic surgeon.

You deserve to know that everyone involved in your procedure (from the surgeon to the receptionist managing your appointments)  is certified and qualified to be in the position they’re in. More than that, you deserve to see results before you undergo surgery.

The only way to see results before a procedure is to witness a surgeon’s past work. Here in our office, Dr. Reynolds tries his best to show all possible outcomes with each procedure to his patients.  To add to before and after pictures, however, it’s good to know from others’ experiences.  So, you turn to patient reviews and testimonials.

Naturally, you want to hear one of your surgeon’s previous patients say something like this:

Dr. Reynolds uses advanced techniques to minimize evasiveness, which in turn, limits the level of pain and recovery time for his patients. I can attest to that! If you’re looking for a plastic surgeon, I would highly recommend scheduling a consult with Dr. Brandon Reynolds. You won’t be disappointed!

Or, maybe something like this:

“I was very happy with the results I got from Dr. Reynolds. I had many consultations around Las Vegas to fix my muscle separation and to get a tummy tuck after having two kids, but after talking to Dr. Reynolds I had complete faith that he would get me the results I was looking for.”

The fact is, patient testimonials matter. The psychology behind this truth is simple: we are more likely to trust results when we know that other REAL people have had great results too.

So, find out what our patients have to say about us by checking out our patient testimonials. Here, you can read stories from past patients for the reassurance you need to move forward with a procedure you’ve always wanted.

The Moral Compass of a Plastic Surgeon

Many people don’t realize the fine line Las Vegas plastic surgeons walk between surgical morals and patient desires. There is a code of ethics that keep surgeons from performing procedures that will jeopardize the health and safety of the patient.

Female doctor analyzing patient fileOf course, there are grey areas to this code of ethics. A surgeon has to determine what’s considered safe for each procedure. Naturally, this safety standard can vary from patient to patient. In addition, a surgeon has to determine whether it’s a good idea to try a new tool or procedure on a patient.

More decision need to be made when psychological health comes into question. Plastic surgeons in Las Vegas have to determine if a patient is mentally and emotionally fit enough to undergo surgery. This requires a relatively extensive screening process.

In the patient screening, surgeons have to ask a series of pointed questions to discern a patient’s mental and emotional health. They are also looking to understand a patient’s expectations about a procedure. Through this screening process, a surgeon is can discover one of the following things:

  • The patient is overall healthy and able to undergo a plastic surgery procedure in Las Vegas with minimal concern.
  • The patient has unrealistic expectations for their procedure but able to be counseled.
  • The patient shows signs of mental health conditions that manifest as unreal expectations and cannot be counseled. Body dysmorphic disorder is a condition that is commonly seen. It makes patients see problems with their bodies that aren’t really there.

If the screening reveals that the patient has unrealistic or unhealthy expectations, then the plastic surgeon has a very serious decision to make. Does he / she try to counsel the patient into seeing reason? Or does he / she forego the procedure and recommend the patient seek treatment for their mental inconsistencies?

Even with the answers to these questions in mind, a surgeon’s job is not over. Plastic surgeons also have to remember that beauty rests in the eye of the beholder. There are times when the patient has one idea of beauty and the surgeon another. In these cases, communication is paramount. While it’s important for the patient to express their desires, surgeons must exhibit the courage to discourage a patient from partaking in a procedure that will give less optimum results.

At the end of the day, surgeons have to pull from all their years of experience and that is why you want Dr. Brandon Reynolds, with all his years of experience and specialized training.
