Plastic Surgery performed on relatives and friends

Today I did a facelift on one of my nurses, a very special one that has been with me for 18 years. She takes good care of herself, and it was a pleasure to try and make her look  even better.  I get the BEST results on people I know. I try so hard -  my heart starts racing near the end as I feel that the last 15 minutes of fussing can make the difference between a good and great result.  That is why I have never been afraid to operate on my friends, staff and family – I always get very good results with these people, and I wouldn’t operate on them unless I KNEW they were good candidates.  That is what makes it harder with other patients – just like in a marriage, it takes a long time to get to know a patient, and I have to rely on my judgement as to whether they  will really be a good patient, listen, be honest, have a support system at home, – basically, tell you the truth about what is going on with them. That is also why I love to do second, third, and fourth procedures down the road on my good patients – you know them, by that time, like family, and communication is so easy; for the surgeon, it’s just a matter of deciding what to do, and executing well. Just like Peyton Manning and his favorite receiver.
