The Benefits of Choosing a Female Plastic Surgeon
Perhaps the most important decision to make when considering plastic surgery is choosing your plastic surgeon. There are many plastic surgeons to choose from in the Houston, Texas area and beyond, but many patients fail to consider whether they’d prefer a male or female doctor. After all, men and women doctors receive the same educations and are equally capable and competent in their fields. However, when it comes to personal experiences as a patient and the doctor-patient relationship, there are some benefits when choosing a female plastic surgeon.
More Thorough Consultation
Statistics have shown that female plastic surgeons spend more time with their patients during consultations compared to male plastic surgeons. This can translate to a more thorough consultation with time to build a friendly and trusting relationship with your plastic surgeon.
Intuitive Understanding of Your Goals
As a woman, your female plastic surgeon is more likely to intuitively understand your concerns, aesthetic goals, and the changes you’re looking for. Regardless of different body types and specific concerns, most women can understand and relate with each other easily when discussing body confidence.
As a woman herself, Dr. Bachilo is especially happy to help women achieve their goals and invigorate their spirits. For example, Dr. Bachilo finds it particularly rewarding to perform mommy makeovers, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation. She understands how empowering it can be for a woman to see her pre-pregnancy body again and to regain confidence.
Empathetic to Your Concerns
Women often share similar insecurities at some point in their lives. Therefore, your female plastic surgeon is more likely to be empathetic towards your feeling of self-consciousness, because she has most likely experienced the same or similar things herself. In addition, your female plastic surgeon has also experienced the typical stages of aging that happen to a woman, making it easier to relate to your plastic surgeon when discussing your insecurities with her.
Feel More Comfortable
If you’re having a breast or body procedure, it is inevitable that you’ll have to show your plastic surgeon. While there’s no real reason to feel ashamed or embarrassed with a male doctor, many women simply feel more comfortable and at-ease with female doctors, no matter the discipline. Your plastic surgeon is no exception. It can feel especially vulnerable to show your doctor a “problem area” that you feel self-conscious about, so many women tend to feel more comfortable with a female plastic surgeon.
