The first part of your assertion is patently false: the doctor and/or clinic absolutely matter! I'm glad to see you got a great result but you happen to have a great shaped unit (huge glans) that would make any Clinic probably "look good," and that was the part you got right (starting size and shape do count!).
The reality is I've gotten plenty of correspondences in private, as well as occasional comments on the forums about (unheard of) Doctors who simply "offer it on their menu of services because they can," to the downright "unscrupulous doctors who shouldn't be offering anything like this at all." Many of the times the results were poor, irrespective of post-op massaging.
I'd strongly advise
seeking out a practitioner who seeks to advance the field and is relatively experienced. Sponsors
are obviously a good starting point (by having a public face on this forum), but there are indeed non-Sponsors I would say are very capable as well.
Note* - moulding may not be a rocket science but to suggest it's easy as "1,2, 3" dismisses instances where men have had less-than-desirable results despite proper massage (even though I'm sure that's not what you meant to say). Sometimes a man's skin isn't ideal or as compliant as one would hope. Maybe the lack of circumcision is playing a role. And so on. This is why I think we shouldn't over-simplify the matter. That all said, a proper post-op commitment to massaging, stretching, etc, can help ensure a successful result and often boosts your chances of a desirable outcome.
The notion that you could walk into any Clinic and walk out with a 5-star result is misguided at best, and I say that respectfully. That's like saying it doesn't matter which restaurant you go to, as long as you put hot sauce on the food, "it'll taste great every time!" There is a reason why we have our go-to barbers, tattoo artists, and even cosmetic physicians.
