Value VS Cost
As we see many patients who come to us with results that are less than satisfactory with treatments they have performed elsewhere, it becomes apparent that there is a need to understand value and cost.
The “cost” of something is its price in dollars or pounds. The “value” of that same thing is what it is worth to you. We aim to give you much more value than what something costs you: be it a reconstructive procedure or a cosmetic one.
However, sometimes, being enticed by or coerced into having procedures done because of discounted or “couponed” procedures can lead to less than satisfactory results. This is especially so when the thinking goes “it is being discounted so I will give it a go”. Materials on discount are not always what one may need. Furthermore, “buying” a small amount of discounted material may be worse than doing nothing as it may not give you any visible result but will still cost you. We see this problem frequently.
All treatments carry some risk and treatment by any surgeon or provider may or may not give you the desired result. But you can reduce the risks of undesirable results and unsatisfactory outcomes by not simply choosing discounted quick-in-quick-out cattle runs, but have your face assessed carefully, be shown the best options for any possible treatments now and in the future and be given time to think things over. That is what delivers value to any cost!

These are our patients!
Please see our results for the different treatments on our various web pages. By concentrating on the head and neck, we have a vast experience in reconstructive as well as cosmetic procedures. Our overall motto is to regard every patient we treat as someone seeking an excellent cosmetic outcome: whether they come to see us for a facelift or lower blepharoplasty or need reconstruction of a loss of an eyelid or part of the face as seen below. A brilliant final outcome is always our goal.
How do we achieve this? By paying attention to anatomy, physiology, aging and disease, if present. We train surgeons from all over the world but Dr. Patel will be the one analysing you and treating you.
Those plastic surgeons that learn to perform beautiful reconstructive surgery perform the best cosmetic surgery: that was taught to me by those that learned from the father of Plastic Surgery, Halold Delf Gillies. I now teach this principle to my residents, fellows and plastic surgeons who come to train with us from the world over.
I don’t know anyone with a functional problem, be it droopy upper lids, or loss of part of the face, who doesn’t want to look the best they can: there in lies the value of a costly and long education!
