Health/Fitness: Dr. Pramit Malhotra gives ‘insider tips’ on plastic surgery
An informed patient is Dr. Pramit Malhotra’s favorite kind of patient. He says when it comes to working with your plastic surgeon to choose the procedures that will give you the results you want, the more you know the better.
Malhotra, a board certified plastic surgeon, believes in the value of educating patients. Frequently, their search for information begins on the Internet. With this in mind, he built an archive of helpful information for patients and potential patients on his “Insider Tips” web page, his blog, and the rest of the Malhotra Center for Plastic Surgery’s web site.
His tips are packed with detailed information on almost every procedure he performs. Each includes detailed descriptions of how procedures are performed, things to discuss with your plastic surgeon, who makes a good candidate for a particular procedure, and what to expect during your recovery.
“Many of my patients have viewed the ‘Insider Tips’ section before coming in for a consultation, and that helps to frame the discussion,” he says.
The better informed his patients are when they sit down for their free consultation with him, the more likely it is that they will be happy with their end results and avoid complications.
Traffic to his web site has increased, especially to popular pages covering breast enhancement procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, and male breast reduction.
His tips also cover three choices in body contouring, including tummy tuck and liposuction. He is also the first plastic surgeon in the area to start using CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ™, a non-invasive option to reduce fat by freezing it.
Tips on facial sculpting procedures cover facelifts, mini-facelifts, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, neck lifts, and ear surgery.
And information about non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX Cosmetic, injectable fillers, chemical peels, and laser hair removal is also there at the click of your mouse.
Dr. Malhotra has plenty of wisdom about who makes a good candidate for particular procedures. But he does not consider himself to be any kind of beauty critic. “Although some patients will come in and say, ‘Take a look and me and tell me what you think,’ I’m more interested in what is bothering them. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” he says.
He prefers his patients do their own “mirror test,” and “tell me one or two things that you look at every day in the mirror,” he says. Along with coming in informed about procedures, it is best for patients to start by “identifying what bothers you, not what others think,” he says.
He is currently offering two specials. First-time patients receive $50 off BOTOX of a filler injection such as Juvederm, Perlane, and Restylane.
Until April 30, saline breast augmentation is $500 off and silicone breast augmentation packages are $300 off.
