One of the biggest problems in medicine is that everyone is looking for the answer.
The One Answer.
Everyone is looking for the one thing, the one cream, the one treatment, the one technology which will sort out everything. This patently does not exist.
The good news is that there are many things which can help, but there is no one thing which works for everything and everyone. This seems pretty obvious but I have always got a whole queue of patients lining up to see me, who have discovered the latest thing. The latest all singing all dancing, extravaganza which will sort out all their problems. They have done their research and come armed with paper clippings and internet printouts about this latest fabulous thing.
Quite a few of them are disappointed when I point out that some of their problems may require a different treatment or a different approach. More importantly they will often involve a little more money than they had planned.
But to me it also stands to reason that most of my patients will require a ‘little bit of this’ and ’a little bit of that.’ I call my approach ‘Cocktail Medicine’. The biggest advantage of ‘Cocktail Medicine’ is it requires you not to rush. We need to see how you respond to treatment ‘A’ before we decide on treatment ‘B’ or ‘C’. This can in the long run even keep the costs down a little as we can tailor the rest of the plan depending on the results so far. All of this is good.
So when you come to see me in the clinic and I lay out a large selection of possible treatments don’t be daunted by the choice. Be empowered by it. Think of it as a smorgasbord of possibilities, a buffet of potential. So whether it is Thermage radio-frequency skin tightening or Fraxel skin resurfacing,VASER Lipo fat reduction or Macrolane breast enhancing injections, you get to choose which is your most important problem, which thing you would like to deal with first. And when we have sorted out those bits we can move on to any other areas of concern that you have.
My patients most often start out small and gentle with a little Botox or some dermal filler moving on to the more significant and potentially more expensive only after they have already proven to themselves that we can produce results as good as we originally offered. There is no need to rush this process. Some of my patients have been coming back to me for over nine years. They keep coming back to me for only two reasons. They know the results I can give them and they trust me to only suggest something which will truly make a difference to how they look or how they feel about themselves.
This trust is something that I value very highly. It is only ever as good as the last treatment I have performed so I make sure that the care and attention to detail that goes into every treatment is the same as the very first time we met.
