If you own a cosmetic surgery practice, then you know that an upfront business model is everything. A single unethical move and your business’ reputation could be ruined for life. It’s important to inspire customer trust every day, and to keep every business practice above-board. Your aesthetic practice should employ only the most confidence-creating tactics, to ensure that you stay trusted and in good standing as long as you’re in business. Without further ado, here are essential practices for your aesthetic clinic.
If your cosmetic practice is brand new, then you’ll want to focus on the most basic surgeries first. Many cosmetic procedures can be deeply complex, and while you’ll eventually acquire the skills, you should gain popularity and experience with simple procedures first. Don’t be afraid to build up gradually to the practice you want.
Before opening your cosmetic practice, you likely underwent both an education as a cosmetic surgeon, and some time understudying the job. It’s important that any new staff members also undergo the proper training, according to the tasks they’ll be performing. Every member of your staff should be properly trained, and you shouldn’t be the only member of your team equipped to perform surgery.
Your location will both inspire confidence and help recruit a customer base. You should choose a location for your practice that’s easily accessible and located in an affluent part of town. The surrounding buildings and lawns should look beautiful and professional. In your practice, you know that image counts, so make the image of your cosmetic practice a good one.
Test Your Equipment
All of your equipment should be properly insured in case of breakdowns or failures to operate. Before performing a patient procedure with any new equipment, you should perform tests to ensure that your equipment is working properly. If you want to save money on equipment and still provide top quality care, you can purchase used cosmetic lasers. They retail at a much lower rate, and are often just as reliable.
Always Take Photos
Every patient will want to see a before and after photo. It can be hard for them to really see the difference unless their healed face is placed side by side with their previous look. A before and after photo can get a customer excited about the quality of work you performed, and you can even display your best transformations, with customer permission, in the lobby.
Keep Careful Records
Every patient’s history should be recorded. You should be able to pull out a detailed history of the procedures they underwent, and what options were discussed before and after surgery. You can have a patient fill out their personal information at the clinic, or you can offer them the chance to do so online. It’s important to have a patient’s information for every step of their journey.
Cosmetic surgery is a wonderful chance for patients to feel better about themselves. It’s no secret that being attractive can help you get hired, and anyone in the performance industry needs to pay special care to their looks. Making customers feel confident is an important part of what you do.
