Through our treatments we are able to improve our patients’ well-being, increase their self-esteem and improve their social performance. But sometimes, as in any medical intervention, there may be complications or bad results, some due to chance, others to malpractice. In such cases, even the strongest of patients can fall apart, with a feeling of frustration and distrust caused by the undesired results. They lose confidence, fear surgical intervention and feel helpless.
Causes and treatment
"In order to resolve these problems, a great deal of experience in both the field of cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery is required. Showing dedication and comprehension to these patients who have lost confidence in our specialty is fundamental. Experience in this sector is difficult, since the
these complications are not common in daily work; therefore, the surgeon cannot acquire the necessary skill by intervening in their own cases, they must therefore accept other people's cases, to help them regain confidence, and make them feel that it really is possible to deal with their problem in a safe and professional manner." - Dr Alfredo Fernández Blanco.
