"Knowledge is power! I spend an unexpected amount of time with each of my patients, making sure they understand every phase of their surgery. The more they know the more they are in control. Nothing is more important then earning the trust of my patients. It is this connection that allows them to undergo surgery with confidence and ease."
Dr. Rahban believes that plastic surgery today is very different than it was years ago. In his view, the overall experience tends to be much better, and the rate of patient satisfaction is, overall, quite high.
This, he believes, is because patients are more familiar with what to expect from their surgery, partially as a result of watching television shows featuring plastic surgeries and from speaking with their friends who have undergone various procedures, and also as a result of advances in both surgical and anesthetic techniques.
"Peoples' approach to plastic surgery has changed considerably in the last five years. With the aid of shows like 'Extreme Makeover' and 'Dr. 90210,' as well as instant access to the online information that is now available regarding virtually every surgical procedure, more and more people are seeking the assistance of a plastic surgeon."
"Plastic surgery is no longer exclusively for the rich or for the Hollywood celebrity,
but is now also for the average 'person next door.' In addition, increasingly, more men are seeking plastic surgeries such as rhinoplasty, liposuction and face lifts. It is much more accepted today, and is no longer associated with some sort of stereotype."
"The key to an 'Extreme Makeover' is to really enhance every aspect of one's image. This means that in addition to plastic surgery, patients should also focus on things such as losing weight, working on their self image and self confidence (with the help of a therapist, if necessary) and improving their smile with dental work, such as obtaining veneers."
"Patients may also want to consider Lasik, and may want to enlist the help of an 'expert' on makeup, hairstyle and clothing. It is only when you focus on every aspect of your image, both internal and external, that you can truly achieve an 'Extreme Makeover.'"
