I often come across (happened again today) patients seeing me for the first time and expecting their procedures booked within a limited time period. The usual outcry would go something like this: “I can only do it in the next three weeks, otherwise it will have to wait a year.” Well……. why not plan the visit to my office a little more ahead so that self imposed deadlines are not an issue! Good aesthetic procedures cannot be sandwiched. They require planning for good results and patient safety.
