Serving Boston and All of Massachusetts from Our Nashua Cosmetic Surgery Practice
At the practice of Mark B. Constantian, MD, FACS, we specialize in primary rhinoplasty and secondary rhinoplasty, but also offer a wide range of other procedures. People visit our Nashua office from Boston, Massachusetts, and beyond because of Dr. Constantian’s cosmetic surgery expertise and dedication to superior patient care.
Plastic surgery is not magic; it is real surgery. While a great deal can frequently be accomplished, you and I must understand each other to develop an effective surgical plan that you wish to carry out. We must work together before, during and after surgery to achieve the best possible outcome. My goal is always the best attainable surgical result for both airway and appearance, with the greatest possible safety.
We work very hard for our patients. Each member of my staff shares my philosophy. Still, you must understand the limitations of what is possible, collaborate with me to develop a surgical plan, and follow it through to completion. None of us wants an unhappy patient or an imperfect surgical result. We all want things to go “just right,” every time. But that would not be surgery, that would be magic.
Nature takes over when the operation is finished and the healing begins. During that time, we follow our patients closely. Our most satisfied patients understand the limitations of cosmetic surgery, are motivated to improve themselves, and are realistic about the outcome. These are also the patients who get the best results.
Some time ago, I was a Visiting Professor at a residency program; and on the day I was to leave, one of the students asked, “Now that we are all going out to start our practices, what is the most important principle we should observe?”
My answer was easy. I told them never to forget what a privilege it is to do the work that we do. Difficult as it is, medicine is a wonderful form of service. Beyond that, the most important ingredient in a successful outcome for the patient is clear communication and mutual trust between the patient and surgeon. It is that framework that defines the philosophy of my practice.
