Plastic surgery is commonly misunderstood. Some people do not understand the results that can be expected, while others don’t understand the process. Double-board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nicolas Slenkovich debunks three of these popular myths about plastic surgery.
Plastic Surgery Is a Commodity. This is one of the misconceptions that Dr. Slenkovich is most passionate about debunking. He explains, “I don’t believe that plastic surgery should be viewed as a commodity. My surgery philosophy is to create a partnership with my patients. My business focuses first on a patient’s personal goals and their situation as they come to us. Not until we’ve identified this do we move forward to serve our clients and patients.”
Plastic Surgery Is for Everyone. Dr. Slenkovich is also adamant that plastic surgery is not for everyone, no matter what others say. Some people mistakenly believe that everyone could feel a confidence boost or notice a benefit from plastic surgery. But Dr. Nicolas Slenkovich flat out says, “I believe that plastic surgery is […] definitely not for everyone.” He not only believes this but practices it. He starts by ensuring that his patients have access to educational content via his social media and his team. Then, he listens to them during the pre-surgery consultation. If he genuinely believes that plastic surgery will not resolve their problems, he doesn’t recommend it. Or if he feels they don’t have realistic expectations, he doesn’t recommend it. In these cases, he suggests alternatives instead.
Plastic Surgery Is the Solution. Many people look at plastic surgery as a simple solution to their problems. Maybe they think they will gain confidence or be happy with their bodies after. However, Dr. Slenkovich says “that plastic surgery is never the ‘solution.’” Instead, it is a step along the journey to a solution. Dr. Nicolas Slenkovich describes what he does as “partner[ing] with patients on their self-improvement journey.” Plastic surgery is just one part of that journey.
Dr. Slenkovich is more than qualified to debunk plastic surgery myths due to his experience. He is double-board certified and runs his own practice. He is also a member of professional societies, including the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Those credentials have strict requirements, demonstrating Dr. Slenkovich’s knowledge and experience.
Dr. Nicolas Slenkovich hopes to debunk these and other myths about plastic surgery. He does so by providing educational content on his Instagram and Snapchat. He also takes the time to talk to each patient before recommending any procedures.
