Plastic surgery is difficult in part because the most complicated decisions rely heavily on the plastic surgeon's judgement and experience. The fundamental issue, which is to often taken for granted, is should a given patient have surgery at all. Plastic surgery is not for everyone, and because of cost, risks, recoveries and consequences such as scarring, it may not be appropriate for every interested patient. Dr. Pin believes it is his responsability to identify and operate on only those who are well suited surgical candidates.
If surgery seems reasonable, the next question is how to match the right operation with the patient. For example, this is fequently the case for women who particularly after having children are interested in improving their abdomen. Since there is no absolute right answer, Dr. Pin must assist the patient in deciding which operation is best suited for her based on her anatomy, lifestyle, recovery and feelings about scarring. This process is crucuial, as a frequent cause of patient dissatisfaction is the "wrong" operation on the "right" person.
Finally, reliable judgement is essential in order to deternine how long or how extensive a particular procedure can be for a patient before it becomes unsafe. With the advent of "Extreme Makeover", patients are often captivated by the idea of having a dramatic makeover done in one extensive setting. While this can occasionally be accomplished, Dr. Pin will utilize his experience and judgement to determine the safest manner in which to achieve someone's ultimate "makeover".
All of his surgeries are performed in a hospital setting/ Though seldom needed, this gives patients the additional availability of both emergency medical equipment, and the assistance of physicians, of other specialties to aid with any unforseen problems. All anesthesia is administered by Board Certified Anesthesiologists, rather than by nurses. Dr. Pin's goal is to minimize risk for every patient any way he can. He is continually re-examining his techniques in order to enhance safety and reduce complications.
