Careful Matters . . . Why you deserve the special treatment

Careful Matters . . . Why you deserve the special treatment

For anyone preparing to undergo a cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure, emphasis on safety and quality should always remain at the fore – no matter your age or location. With procedure numbers growing year on year internationally, choosing the right surgeon for you is key to achieving the best results, and the best individual care. Here’s why experience, specialist training and the practise are weighted above all else. The art of plastic surgery isn’t reliant on just skill and ability – it requires sound technical ability too. For the majority of surgical procedures – even non-invasive – the outcome is affected by planning and decision making in the headspace, not just the hands at work. Many people don’t realise that not all surgeons specialise exclusively in cosmetic surgery – more than 90% of them do not. Which is why choosing a surgeon who specialises in both – cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery – like Da Vinci’s Adam Bialostocki and Brandon Adams, is essential for peace-of-mind and careful management of procedures. As reported by the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), it takes eight to ten years of specialist training to become a Specialist Plastic Surgeon and have your training recognised by The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) – the only professional body accredited to train Specialist Surgeons in New Zealand and Australia. The RACS also requires and monitors ongoing medical education, ensuring specialists continue to provide the highest standards of professional care. Only fully trained and registered Specialist Plastic Surgeons who are fellows of the RACS – like Adam and Brandon – can join the Australasian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the ASAPS. Many renowned surgeons, will also choose to undertake additional post-fellowship training. For example, Adam travelled to Paris where he sought speciality training in breast surgery, facial rejuvenation and body contouring. Attendance at annual symposiums and workshops is also a tell-tale sign a surgeon is vested in his vocation – and everyone (patients and practice staff) stand to benefit from this knowledge. This month Adam attended the Advanced Aesthetic Plastic Workshop 2019 with a dominant focus on eyelid surgery. Alongside sound specialist experience and qualifications, feeling comfortable in your surrounds is essential for any procedure. No matter the size of the practise – big or small – every patient deserves assurance, attentiveness and reassurance. The personalities, communication and ease of the staff – coupled with the care and attention to detail of the rooms and spaces – are sure signs that you are in the right hands from initial consultation right through to after-care procedures.
