Breast Enlargement: Why Some Aesthetic Surgeons Can Refuse You

Aesthetic surgeons, also known as “cosmetic” or “plastic” surgeons, can refuse service in some cases. Cosmetic surgery is frequently considered an elective procedure, especially when it is done to improve one’s confidence or appearance rather than to correct a flaw from an accident or defect. Some people who consult a surgeon may be turned down for surgery they wish to have. Doctors must consider the patient’s medical history and financial and psychological history. There are many reasons why a patient could be turned down by their doctor for this type of procedure, and this article will discuss a few of those reasons.

One of the reasons for a denial is the surgery clinic’s assessment may be your ability to pay for the procedure. Private health insurance companies usually will not pay for elective procedures. Some doctors will operate on credit, while some won’t. Talking to your doctor about your ability to pay is important so that both your doctor and you understand your payment plan before the surgical operation.

Another factor that may be considered is whether you have had a breast enlargement or other surgeries before, as well as health risks. There are some risks for any type of surgery, and for some patients, feeling or looking better is not worth the health risk they will face during or after the procedure itself. People who do not tolerate anesthesia well may not be good candidates for any type of surgery, particularly a procedure that is medically unnecessary. Patients with a medical history involving addiction treatment may also not be good candidates, due to the pain management process that will be needed after surgery.

Finally, some patients can be denied for breast enlargement because the surgeon does not believe that the surgery is psychologically beneficial to the patient. Those who have had multiple surgeries before, particularly of the same type may be turned down in some cases. Plastic surgery can be addictive for some people, and most cosmetic surgeons want patients to be sure that they are prepared psychologically for the procedure. Typically, doctors screen for psychological conditions, such as body image problems prior to surgery to assess whether the result will be beneficial to the patient, or if the patient will wish to have more surgeries, whether they are necessary or not.

Whether or not a surgeon chooses to perform a specific operation does not mean that you should decide not to consult other surgeons. Finding the one that is right for your needs and establishing a good doctor-patient relationship is important to make sure that your hard-earned money is spent well on a relatively permanent operation. Cosmetic surgery is not a quick fix, and surgeons do not undertake all cases without screening many different factors first.
