ABOUT THIS WEBSITE
In “About this Website,” discover the reasoning behind our web content; why some aspects seem to be missing—like patient ratings, before and after plastic surgery photographs, and patient testimonials; and how our website was created.
Why do some parts of the website seem to be missing, and who is responsible for this website?
Before and After Plastic Surgery Photographs
In recognition of many potential ethical concerns surrounding them, we do not provide Before and After plastic surgery photographs on our website. While this decision is primarily to protect the patients’ identities, it is also very easy to take misleading or inaccurate photographs, either purposefully or inadvertently. Providing Before and After plastic surgery photographs can give prospective patients a false impression of potential results they may experience. Prospective patients are encouraged to be very wary of social media and website-hosted Before and After plastic surgery photographs provided by other surgeons.
Dr Dufresne makes a strong effort to take clear and accurate photographs and provides the opportunity to review representative–not just extreme examples–Before and After plastic surgery photographs during consultations, where an open and honest discussion can take place. Contact us to reserve a time for your consultation with Dr Dufresne.
PATIENT Testimonials & patient ratings
While many statements from patients about the care they received are genuine, heartfelt, and unsolicited, patient testimonials & patient ratings still only represent one patient’s personal, subjective experience, either positive or not. Dr Dufresne appreciates hearing from thankful patients and being apprised of concerns, but we do not publish these comments. We do not want prospective patients to be unduly influenced by subjective, unscientific data that cannot account for the medical differences of each patient which contribute, either positively or negatively, to their outcome.
During your consultation, Dr Dufresne will provide his complication and success rates, in comparison with accepted standard rates, for the treatments or procedures appropriate for you. This type of information will allow you to understand your choices more fully and make a more informed decision. Contact us to reserve a time for your consultation with Dr Dufresne.
