There was an interesting article in The Wall Street Journal this month listing 10 things Plastic Surgeons won’t tell you. Among the list of zingers you’d never hear from your plastic surgeon are such statements as “I trained a whole weekend to learn this procedure”, and “Long-term effects? Beats me.” It was written, of course, with the author’s tongue firmly in planted in his cheek but the message was quite serious.
A lot of poorly regulated and even unregulated business is going on in this area of medicine and the bottom line is that you need to do your homework and make sure you know just exactly who is doing what to you. We, at Profiles, are big proponents of taking it slow when it comes to new therapies and technologies because today’s fad may be tomorrow’s problem. But that’s just us. We encourage you to research, ask questions, and treat cosmetic procedures with the respect and seriousness they should merit. If you see a truly qualified practitioner, the chances for a satisfying outcome are extremely high.No comments
