Getting a cosmetic treatment is a big decision and there are a lot of options and opinions floating around out there. But wouldn’t it be nice to get some genuine, honest advice about a procedure. Dr. Adam Augenstein is here from Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte and he’s come with some insight into answers for questions that I know many of our morning breakers have. Thank you for being with us.
Dr. Augenstein: Thank you I appreciate it. Thanks for having me.
Coach Lamont: So you are double-board certified. You say that is an important distinction that a plastic surgeon should have. Why is that?
Dr. Adam Augenstein: Well there is only 1 board of plastic surgery, the American Board of Plastic Surgeons. There are no others. During the process to become board-certified, each plastic surgeon is thoroughly vetted, and their ethics, their judgement and their technical expertise is of the highest order. That is really the first box the patient should check off when they are looking into having that plastic surgery procedure. They can feel confident that no shortcuts were taken for that plastic surgeon to get where they are at. Now, a shortcut, when getting to your destination may be a good thing, but when it comes to plastic surgery, it’s not a good thing.
Coach Lamont: When patients come to see you, they have various procedures that I know that you offer there. What are some of those procedures?
Dr. Adam Augenstein: Well, we offer everything head-to-toe. Plastic surgeries from face-lifts, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, mommy makeovers, liposuction, surgery after massive weight loss. All the way down to Botox and injectibles, as well as non-invasive body contouring procedures such as Coolsculpting, and facial tightening to chemical peels and facials. We really do offer it all, big and small, head to toe.
Coach Lamont: Alright, so what separates your practice from other practices out there?
Dr. Adam Augenstein: Well, our core values. That’s where it starts. Honesty, safety, dramatic, yet natural results. That sums up in a superior patient experience for us. Every patient is unique in our practice, this isn’t a cookie cutter approach. So, you come to see me, you are an individual, and you are going to get recommendations and treatment options that fit you, that aren’t just… everyone gets the exact same thing. We feel very strongly about our patients being well educated and informed about their potential procedure. We treat all patients with the utmost respect. There is so much out there in the media and social media, the internet, you know, what do you believe, whats true what’s false, what’s oversold. We are really a place that patients can come to they can trust that whatever we offer, that they feel confident they are getting the right treatment, procedure or recommendation.
Coach Lamont: So how can people get in touch with you?
