Dr. Scott Thompson’s large patient base reports natural results with facial plastic surgery procedures and appreciation for his honesty when it comes to how much to inject.
Dr. Thompson takes a conservative approach with Botox® and dermal fillers in facial plastic surgery and cautions patients on the overuse of volumizing dermal fillers that leads to unnatural results. We see it in Hollywood, reality tv, and now more commonly in our own social circles. A recent article in Allure magazine titled, “Overdone”, discusses this increasingly common concern in the aesthetic community with more women asking their doctors for so much cosmetic filler that they end up looking unnatural and in some cases, unhuman. The article goes on to explore what these women see in the mirror and why plastic surgeons are allowing this.
Because dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Voluma, can be injected with instant results in one quick treatment with no downtime, they’ve become wildly popular among millions of women and men. It’s the instant shot of gratification that keeps many coming back for more, but sometimes more often than they should. Their image becomes distorted, to a certain degree, and plastic surgeons continue to treat as they feel they are giving the patient what they want while reaping the financial rewards. Many also fear that if they say no, they may lose the patient to another practitioner.
Dr. Thompson works with patients to address their concerns while educating them on what looks natural and realistic. “When done right, patients should look youthful, refreshed, and still like themselves following facial plastic surgery. I take a conservative approach by starting with a moderate amount. Patients can then come back for more after evaluating the result for a few weeks.” He explains this process in a recent episode of The Younger You with Troy Thompson and documents Nicea DeGering’s experience with Botox and dermal fillers. She reports looking her best and feeling completely confident following her “liquid facelift” procedure.
Dr. Thompson has many online reviews from patients that report on their great trust in him knowing he isn’t just making recommendations based on financial gain but is honestly doing what he feels will provide them with the best results possible. In the words of one patient, “He is a doctor that is not into this for just the monetary value, he truly loves his profession, he cares about people and wants the best for his patients who come to him. I have been to several doctors and will never go to anyone else, he is by far the most competent doctor I have known.”
