A plastic surgeon says having plastic surgeons as colleagues is better than having plastic pallets.
Speaking to The Guardian, Dr Daniel Lefroy said: “It’s really important to have a little bit of support and a lot of trust from other surgeons.”
The surgeon, who works in Northampton, said it was important to look at patients first and not wait for them to come to you.
“It’s more important to see how a patient looks before making a decision.”
Dr Lefry said the only time he felt uncomfortable was if a patient wasn’t able to provide the same level of detail.
“But if you’re a patient and you have a really good idea of what the patient is thinking, you can then go to the surgeon and ask him what’s going on,” he said.
“If he says, ‘Well, I can’t see that,’ that’s okay.”
He added that having a team of plastic surgeons was crucial.
“We have to look after each other,” he explained.
“You don’t get any better with a team than you do without a team.
It’s really crucial.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a great surgeon or not.
We have to make sure that we’re doing the right thing.”
