When I say docs perform too many surgeries I do not mean a surgeon who does 200 rhinoplasties every six months. I mean a surgeon that claims to be a specialist in everything under the sun, like a doc that claims he or she can fix every issue from head to toe.
It's good that you are only using facial specialists, but it is definitely in your best interest to visit multiple surgeons. As you learn more, ask more questions, and visit more surgeons you will be a well informed plastic surgery candidate who can make intelligent and well researched decisions. Remember you need to be in control ... not the surgeon.
I understand your point of view, and I agree with you. If I decide on the otoplasty, i do. It want ears pulled all the way to the back. I will definitely ask for a more modest change. My pain problem is, I think, is the fact tat my ear lobes point forward.
I also understand what you mean by 'too many types many surgeries'. The doctors I've chosen work exclusively on the face. The vast majority of websites show most doctors perform body and face surgeries, which is not ok with me. However, it's a litle confusing because some of the feedback I've gotten implies the facial doctors I've chosen still conduct too many types of surgeries although they only focus on the face. What I'm trying to understand is, when I look at a facial doctor, how many types of surgeries are too many? Are rhinoplasty, otoplasty, facelift, brow lift and chin implants too many for a doctor to advertise in his clinic?
Do you have an example of a doctor's website that has a limited set of advertised surgeries? That would really help me to get an idea of what a good threshold is.
