1. You cant treat every single facial aesthetics patients and your aim is not to treat everyone.
Learn to say no – I have had a couple of patients whose lips come through the door before they do and request a lip augmentation as they feel their lips are too small! If you firstly cannot improve upon what they have and secondary you can see where you can make a difference, then do not treat.
It all starts from a detailed consultation and assessment. In a perfect world, the ideal patient would have the following traits:
– happy to listen to your recommendations and not be led by advertising campaigns
– patient can clearly communicate their concerns and the results they want
– understand what can be achieved and what cannot be done
– balances results with possible complications
– accepts the duration of results
– they are responsible for good skin care regime
The there is the complete opposite, patients suffering from BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder). These are patients that are obsessively pre occupied with real or imaginary defects. If they do have any defects, these are normally minor but are perceived by the patient to be disfiguring. Decline to treat such patients at all costs.
2. Great to be involved invited to speak last week at the YDA (Young Dentist Academy) on getting Started in Facial Aesthetics.
