It is normal to be afraid and concerned about having surgery. Here at Dr. Hochstein’s office we encourage our patients to ask a lot of question until they feel confident not only in Dr. Hochstein but his staff as well. Emotional support is very important when having plastic surgery and often times family and friends have a hard time giving the support that’s needed due to a lack of understanding. Often times people don’t understand how important this surgery is to you and how to deal with your feelings about your upcoming surgery. Because plastic surgery is elective and it is cosmetic friends and family can become complacent not realizing how important it is that you have their support at this time. Also friends and family may have your best intention in mind but not have the right information to help you along your journey. Remember this may be the only surgery you ever have but here at Dr. Hochstein office we go through this with patients every day so it is very important to us that you feel comfortable not only with the doctor but our entire team. With this in mind we will do our very best to make sure your journey is not only a success but that you receive all the emotional support you need. .
