Board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Gregory Baum and Anthony Deboni have been successfully performing plastic surgery for decades and honing their skills to be where they are today: leaders at the forefront of aesthetic medicine, providing the highest level of plastic surgery and non-surgical aesthetic treatments.
Drs. Deboni and Baum share a common goal — they want you to be happy, and this means something different for everyone! While one person’s “best” is larger breasts with breast augmentation, another’s may be a flatter, firmer belly with tummy tuck.
No matter what your goal, Dr. Deboni says “our aim is to help you feel satisfied, and that takes a little feedback on your part.”
Before your surgery, “clear, honest communication is vital,” says Dr. Baum.
To boost your chances for surgical success, here are a few questions to ask yourself and discuss with our staff during your surgical consultation:
Why are you seeking cosmetic surgery?
While it may seem like an obvious answer to you — (you desire surgery to enhance your appearance) — this question’s intent digs deeper. Do you think surgery will make you happier? Are you generally satisfied with your appearance and looking to fix a specific area of your body that needs extra help? If so, there’s a great chance you’ll love your results. Several studies indicate that patients with the highest levels of satisfaction after surgery tend to have a fairly positive self-image going into the surgery.
How long have you desired surgery?
We advise patients to take their time when considering plastic surgery. “Surgery isn’t something you rush into,” says Dr. Deboni. During your consultation process, we will help you explore all your options to help you choose the right surgical plan for your particular needs. For example, body contouring with BodyTite and FaceTite, two forms of radiofrequency-enhanced liposuction, provide both fat reduction and skin tightening in one efficient treatment.
To get you where you need to be, you may benefit from a combination of services to enhance your surgery, such as non-invasive skin tightening, laser skin rejuvenation, or Botox® & Dermal Fillers. Drs. Baum and Deboni, and the Beauty Team at CNY Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery care about you and will work with you to design a treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals.
After thoughtful reflection, and with the guidance of our surgical staff, your optimal treatment plan will become clear. “The best news is that you’ve got so many options today for realizing your personal best,” says Dr. Baum, “and plastic surgery is one of the safest and most effective solutions.”
Dr. Deboni adds that, “If your goal is immediate, dramatic, and long-lasting results, there’s no substitute for plastic surgery.”
