That said, he’s much more than just experienced and knowledgeable; he also genuinely cares about each of his patients.
Dr. Erella understands that finding the right surgeon can be challenging, which is why we’d like to share some valuable information on how to choose the correct plastic surgeon and how to know if you are mentally prepared for surgery.
Choosing Your Plastic Surgeon
There are a variety of plastic surgeons in Austin and the surrounding Texas communities offering their services. An even higher number of doctors in the area also provide cosmetic procedures, although they are not specifically trained as plastic surgeons.
Many of these doctors will talk up their amenities- the impressive-looking things they can offer you as part of your experience. There’s no doubt that a pleasant, relaxing, and welcoming office is a nice touch. We’d have to agree.
Choosing your surgeon is difficult, as everyone seems to offer something great. But by far, the most crucial consideration is your safety, as you’ll entrust this doctor with the safety and appearance of your own face or body. Because plastic surgery has grown so common, many under-qualified medical professionals offer cosmetic procedures, and Dr. Erella has frequently been called on by dissatisfied patients to correct those poor results.
The good news is that your choice of surgeon, while critical, does not have to be complicated. You will be able to make an informed decision on your own by contemplating a just a few factors. We’re confident that your consideration will lead you to Aspira Plastic Surgery!
When choosing a plastic surgeon, we urge you to consider the following qualifications:
There truly is no substitute for hands-on surgical experience. Dr. Erella has been a surgeon since 1992, which means he understands the realities of surgery. He has seen how things can go awry, and he’s comfortable enough not to panic when something unforeseen arises. You need a plastic surgeon with outstanding experience in the field.
You should verify that your plastic surgeon is board-certified. Board-certification means that the surgeon has completed residencies in both general and plastic surgery, passed a rigorous series of oral and written exams, and has performed the hard work needed to stay current on the latest developments in the field.
Many larger practices treat the plastic surgery experience as an assembly line by ushering patients through the process as quickly as possible to maximize profits. At Aspira, Dr. Erella handles every case personally. He’ll discuss your procedure with you, be there for you throughout the process, and perform your surgery himself.
You deserve the best. You deserve an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who treats you as a unique individual. You deserve Dr. Erella.
A Healthy Mindset for Plastic Surgery
When discussing whether you’re a candidate for plastic surgery, it’s natural to focus on physical and observable factors. You need to be in sound physical health to undergo plastic surgery, and that’s relatively simple to measure.
However, your mental state is every bit as important. You must have the right mindset and sound mental health to undergo plastic surgery safely.
When choosing your plastic surgeon, it’s imperative to find a doctor who’s willing to take his or her time to get to know you. At Aspira Plastic Surgery, we do everything possible to check that you are in the right psychological place to have plastic surgery.
Why Is Mental Preparation So Important?
Modern plastic surgery is quite safe. All of our procedures boast impressive safety records, and you can have confidence that we will protect your health and well-being at all points.
Surgery is still surgery, however, and many of our procedures are highly invasive. Major plastic surgery puts considerable strain on both your body and psyche.
Take the tummy tuck as a simple example. This procedure will dramatically tone and tighten your abdominal muscles, which makes it popular. However, it requires multiple days of recovery, another few weeks of swelling along with mild discomfort, and the results won’t fully materialize for months after the procedure.
All of these components can take a toll on your mental health. You’ll have to deal with some discomfort, plus the uncertainty that comes from not immediately seeing results, all while being unable to distract yourself with work and other responsibilities.
Dr. Erella- Committed to Patient Care
Plastic surgery can be a stressful decision, but only if you’re not prepared for it. That’s why Dr. Erella is committed to ensuring that you are ready. Before you undergo your procedure, we will walk you through every step of the process, showing you the whole scope of what to expect. We’ll also talk to you about your cosmetic goals and what you hope to achieve with surgery.
In our experience, an informed patient is a relaxed patient, and a relaxed patient is a happy patient. We want you to have sound expectations before moving forward with any procedure.
