Safety First

Posted .

No matter how important good looking results may be, the most important aspect of that procedure has to be safety. Sometimes medical conditions show up just prior to surgery or they are not apparent until the last minute. If these findings can possibly compromise the results or the safety of the patient then surgery has to be postponed until the issue is resolved or clarified. Patients put their normal life on hold for these procedures and initially are upset at the postponement but soon realize that their best interests are at the heart of the matter. They are all thankful that caution was used and “corners” not cut.
