Performed under general or local anesthesia, it is technically and artistically a very challenging surgery. For the surgery to be a success, it is important for the doctor and the patient to understand each other, communicate simply and clearly about realistic expectations from the surgery. Quite often, even when the surgery is deemed a success, the patient feels let down, because of the unrealistic expectations. Therefore, it is important to understand, that the surgery helps the patient with reasonable enhancements and not perfection, as perceived by most patients. Pre-surgery fears and apprehensions are quite common and the doctor ensures that these are appropriately addressed by the professionally skilled staff at the hospital.
At the end of the day, reputation, skill and experience do not amount to much if the patient is not made to feel comfortable. Realistic expectations are important for a happy patient. The doctor is extremely sincere and dedicated to his profession and believes in educating his patients about the surgery. His honest approach has earned him the title of ‘Top Doctor Award”, ‘Patient’s Choice’ and ‘Most Compassionate Doctor’. Titles, that the doctor treasures.
