You cannot expect ANY miracles from ANY surgery, including plastic surgery. Every individual case differs and every surgeon has his or her own special skill, although there are NO guarantees. That's why they make you sign the creative waivers, absolving surgeon liability, regardless of their responsibility. I do not wholeheartedly agree with the surgeon having the ability to "erase" all wrongdoing, even when it is his or her fault completely, however, expecting miracles is unreasonable. The first thing the patient can do to avoid complete and total dissatisfaction, is to have reasonable expectations, as I have posted in the past. If one perceives surgery as a "miracle", he or she will be very dissapointed and might start the cycle of returning for more (perhaps undeemed or unnecessary on a personal or professional basis) until your miracle "might" happen.
