FORT WORTH, Texas, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In a world of TV on demand and drive-thru lattes, instant gratification
"In my practice, I have noticed a growing number of patients who are under the impression that it is possible to complete a consultation and surgery in a matter of a few weeks—or even less. However, highly experienced, sought-after surgeons typically have schedules booked up for several months," states Dr. Kirby, who has been named a Fort Worth Magazine Top Doctor for the last 3 consecutive years.
Dr. Kirby says that the plastic surgery process—from researching potential plastic surgeons to getting back to one's full routine after surgery—can take at least 6 months and warns that rushing the process in order to get results quickly can lead to compromises that jeopardize a patient's health or leave her with subpar results.
"Plastic surgery should be taken seriously as any other medical procedure—it is worth the wait to get in with a highly experienced, board certified plastic surgeon whose work you love," stresses Dr. Kirby.
To help patients better plan for their cosmetic procedures, Dr. Kirby recently published a guide outlining typical timeframes for the plastic surgery process. She highlights four key phases:
Dr. Kirby stresses that patients who want to be healed and look great for a special occasion, as well as those who have a small window of available time for surgery and downtime, should start the consultation process as early as possible—up to a year in advance is not too soon.
"The best way to get the ideal surgery date for your schedule, with the plastic surgeon you prefer, is to start the consultation process at least 6 months prior. The more time between your consultation and desired surgery date you allow, the more likely it is that your plastic surgeon will be available at a time that works well for you," advises Dr. Kirby.
