Reflections of Dr. Madjoudj on plastic surgery

After over 30 years of practice in Algeria, what reflections can I make?

Reconstructive Surgery

Reconstructive surgery has the potential to transform patients' lives by restoring hope and confidence. This ability to bring back smiles is tangible, especially through the before-and-after photos of patients. These moments reflect the immense gratification surgeons feel.

Evolutions in Aesthetic Surgery

Over the years, cosmetic surgery has evolved, sometimes alarmingly. Some changes and practices demonstrate an ethical drift, where medical integrity is sidelined. It's crucial to recognize these deviations and work to restore trust and ethics.

Pressures and Unrealistic Expectations

The modern era sees an increase in patients, especially younger ones, with unrealistic aesthetic requests. Unlike past procedures where parents and children sought medical solutions, today, some aim to fulfill fantasies influenced by unrealistic ideals. Sadly, some surgeons oblige without proper counseling.

The Influence of Social Media

Social media and influencers play a significant role in today's perception of beauty. They often relay a greedy industry promoting, at times, dangerous standards, thus influencing patients' expectations and encouraging unnecessary procedures.

Importance of the Consultation

A key step in cosmetic surgery: It is the time to listen carefully to the patient's request and assess its feasibility.

If the request is unrealistic, it is the surgeon's duty to explain the refusal.

If the request is accepted, it is necessary to explain the procedure in detail.

A reflection period of 8 days is required before operating.

A second consultation is essential.
