Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS founder and owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center, relates that half of his business is devoted to corrective surgery and encourages prospective patients to take their time and interview more than one surgeon before making their selection.
ATLANTA, GA, June 13, 2019: Founder and Owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center, Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS posted a new blog on the Oculus website entitled, “You Never Get A Second Chance…,” in which Dr. Cole emphasizes the importance of consulting with more than one surgeon before having a procedure.
Dr. Cole asks, “Remember the old Head & Shoulders shampoo commercial that forewarned, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression”?” He continues, “Well, let me tell you, as a plastic surgeon I’ve adopted that slogan and live by it. As far as I’m concerned why would any patient give a plastic surgeon a second opportunity to cut on their face (or any other body part) if they botched it the first time?”
As Dr. Cole establishes, “Unfortunately not all surgeons live according to that guiding principle.” “How do I know?” he asks, and replies, “Because more than 50% of my business is repairing/correcting botched procedures.”
“When I’m sitting with a patient coming for a corrective procedure,” says Dr. Cole, “my only thought is, “Why didn’t they do more research and meet with more surgeons before they dove in?””
