Decision Making in Aesthetic Practice
The Right Procedures for the Right Patients
Vincent Wong, BSc, MBChB, Vindoc Aesthetics, London, UK
Healthcare professionals in Aesthetic Practice are often faced with a presenting complaint that may seem straightforward to treat but lends itself to more than one treatment option. To achieve and deliver the best natural-looking results, certain basic points about the face must be respected; there must be a good understanding of the specific root cause of each patient’s complaint; and that knowledge must be communicated effectively with the patient. The aim of this book is to help guide a healthcare professional in selecting the best and most appropriate options for any patient.
