Enhancing Patients Done At Other Practices - Why we do not recommend it
An enhancement surgery is more complicated and challenging than the
primary surgery. Although it is a routine procedure that we offer to all
of our patients, we do not do enhancements for surgeries done else
where. It is much safer to do your enhancement at your primary surgeon's
practice because they know exactly what surgery was done, which method
was used to make the flap, how you healed, and how you did. When
evaluating other doctor's notes it is sometimes difficult to have 100%
accuracy as to what was done.
If your primary surgeon has retired, it may be too risky to do the procedure without knowledge of your primary surgery.
We feel confident in doing enhancements for patients that have had
surgery at our practice because we have 100% knowledge of which
technology was used and how they did after their primary surgery.
