Meet Dr. Lori Saltz
Elective surgery is just that; elective. The approach for those seeking cosmetic surgery is different than when there's no choice in the matter. I believe that patient information, education and explanation are at the heart of what I do.
I think being a woman is an enormous benefit in understanding what my female patients are unhappy about. Their concerns are familiar to me personally, allowing me a deeper understanding. I think it is valuable to communicate orally, visually and in writing.
During the physical evaluation I like to point out what I am seeing as a surgeon. I frequently hear "I never noticed that". Knowing the advantages and disadvantages of different surgical approaches is important information for each patient so there is a greater level of understanding.
The patient has to be included in the decision making. I believe this is the essence of plastic surgery. Shape, size, scar length and placement, expense and recovery time all need to be taken into account.
It is very important to me that my patients are put at ease and never feel intimidated. My staff and I are committed to making our patients happy and to helping them feel comfortable and informed from start to finish.
Dr. Saltz meets with each person considering cosmetic surgery personally in consultation. Dr. Saltz believes that the "sharing of information" is crucial to the relationship that needs to exist between a doctor and a patient.
At the same time as your consultation with San Diego cosmetic surgeon Dr. Saltz, you will also meet with a nurse and a patient care coordinator. You will be able to view before and after photos of actual patients of Dr. Saltz.
