Emotions And Cosmetic Surgery: The Doctor-Patient Relationship
Experts say that when a patient decides to visit an expert in plastic surgery , he seeks medical help, but also, and above all, understanding and humanity. Indeed, the patient needs moral support, and seeks not only a doctor, but also a friend in the specialist.
The understanding and empathy of a doctor, together with the use of new techniques and professionalism, are the necessary basis for establishing a relationship of mutual trust between the patient and the specialist.
Cosmetic surgery, the surgery of emotions
The beauty is something very subjective. No one can absolutely say that one thing is beautiful and the other is not. On the contrary, it is very easy to distinguish between what is correct and incorrect. Everything that is correct and well done has a linear and harmonious aspect.
Normality and harmony are the main goal of cosmetic surgery.
For the specialist, however, this is not the only goal: the question goes much deeper, and touches on personal areas such as self-confidence and the pursuit of happiness.
For this reason, every patient has the right to a personalized aesthetic surgical treatment , which aims to improve his physical as well as emotional appearance.
There are no studies that indicate that cosmetic surgery extends life, but there are studies that confirm that it helps you feel better about yourself.
Restorative surgery, a real help
Many patients turn to the specialist when they have already lost even the last hope. Many of them suffer from serious physical problems , and have been told many times “there is nothing more to be done”.
Physical problems congenital or derived from trauma bring with them profound emotional problems.
The specialist, with a little luck, can restore these people to a “normal” life and help their reintegration into society: plastic surgeons, in fact, deal with congenital deformities , oncological reconstructions, severe burns, etc.
Everyone has the right to a second chance.
