Personal Touches that Matter
With information being so accessible, people do a lot of research these days when they are looking for a plastic surgeon. They see multiple doctors before making their choice. When asked why patients choose him after consultations with other surgeons, Dr. Yamahata says:
“I spend as much time as necessary talking with patients to find the solution that fits them physically, emotionally, and is best suited to their lifestyle. I suspect that almost 20% of people are not good candidates for the procedure they think they need; for example, they might think they need liposuction when a tummy tuck would be better. I take the time to explain their options, how the procedures work, the changes they can realistically expect, as well as possible complications.”
“They feel comfortable talking with me. People usually expect a doctor to be authoritarian, but I am approachable and personable.”
“I avoid that ‘plastic surgery look.’ I discourage that type of change even when people ask for it. Above all, my goal is to have my results look natural. It is best when people just look good, and no one realizes that they’ve had plastic surgery.”
“I see patients frequently after surgery to reassure them that things are going normally. I personally call them at home after their procedure and see them regularly in my office. They are comforted because they know I’ll be there for them.”
