How Dr. Rady Rahban has raised the standard of Mommy Makeovers
From the moment patients meet him, they routinely say there is something different about Dr. Rady Rahban. They wonder if it’s just his friendly demeanor or his ability to listen. While these are definitely true, they are just incidental qualities that stem from his basic philosophy and approach. In Dr. Rahban’s words:
"Knowledge is power! I spend an unexpected amount of time with each of my patients, making sure they understand every phase of their surgery. The more they know the more they are in control. Nothing is more important than earning the trust of my patients. It is this connection that allows them to undergo surgery with confidence and ease."
From beginning to end, patients benefit from a surgeon whose every move is guided by the above philosophy. This starts with Dr. Rahban’s well-known, comprehensive consultation process. Unlike other plastic surgeons who may only spend fifteen minutes with a patient, or no time at all, Dr. Rahban’s consultation is the keystone of his treatment. With an average time of one hour spent with each patient, Dr. Rahban’s role is not that of a surgeon with a vested interest—he is a guide in your Beverly Hills Mommy Makeover journey who has your best interest at heart.
Dr. Rahban’s consultation process is his most cherished time with his patients. It gives him the opportunity to educate and inform. As a veteran of plastics surgery, Dr. Rahban knows that patients may be confused by the overwhelming amount of data in the cosmetic industry. He considers it his duty to provide this data, allowing his patients to completely understand exactly what will happen during their procedure. He provides accurate expectations and fully involves each patient in their own journey. As his patients will report, a consultation with Dr. Rahban helps to clarify the diluted and complicated world of plastic surgery.
Modern plastic surgery differs from times past—it used to be paternalistic, in which the surgeon simply decides what’s best for the patient. These days, plastic surgery should be collaborative. Dr. Rahban goes through all options and recommends what he thinks is the best option. He concurrently educates the patient on everything that is open to her, allowing her to fully contribute her personal preference. Patients today are much more knowledgeable than they used to be, and Dr. Rahban’s approach helps them become even more educated.
During a consultation, Dr. Rahban has one primary purpose—total patient education. He wants each patient to fully understand the nuances of Mommy Makeovers, as well as every risk and exactly how the procedure applies to them, allowing them to make the best decision for themselves. With his honest, candid approach, Dr. Rahban brings a new level of care to ensuring his patients know exactly how a Mommy Makeover works.
If you’ve seen other surgeons for a consultation, now is the time to ask yourself about that particular process. Did he or she show sincere interest in your well being? Did you feel understood? How long was the consultation? Take an honest look at that consultation, and ask yourself if you felt the surgeon truly grasped who you are and what you want. This is essential in establishing a trusting relationship with your surgeon.
After having about ten consultations with many well known Beverly Hills mommy makeover surgeons, I decided to have my procedures done with Dr. Rahban. He and his staff's demeanor was very warm and welcoming but still very to the point and honest. He focused on the one problem area I had and did not try to sell me on 20 other procedures like many of the other doctors. I never once felt like I was being sold a service. They made it as simple as coming in to see a regular doctor about an every day cough. My body looked great after and the recovery time was just under 2 weeks. I would go back in a heartbeat if I ever needed to!Heather C., Yelp
In the interest of doing his work with absolute professionalism, Dr. Rahban sets himself apart by ensuring even the tiniest details are performed with the highest standards. Even during a Mommy Makeover, in which multiple areas are addressed, Dr. Rahban cuts no corners. He will spend hours longer than other surgeons in the operating room, all towards giving his patients the high quality results that have made him among the top Mommy Makeover doctors available.
To illustrate this, Dr. Rahban’s closing technique is second to none. In some cases, other surgeons may actually allow a surgical technician to close incisions, leaving the door open for an imperfect result. This practice is intended to cut time for the surgeon, allowing him to move on from you and make more money.
In contrast, Dr. Rahban will take literally hours to painstakingly close each individual layer of tissue to ensure an even, smooth result. In closing the outer skin, he uses a much higher number of sutures than other surgeons. This high number of sutures ensures there is very little tension on each individual stitch. This lack of tension produces minimal scarring, and the incision is virtually invisible once the healing process is complete.
With this same standard of care applied to every aspect of surgery, Dr. Rahban has rightfully earned a reputation for being the Mommy Makeover Guru. Both patients and surgical peers routinely seek his advice concerning the art of Mommy Makeovers. If you are looking for among the very best in cosmetic care, Dr. Rahban is sure to give you what you want.
