5 Questions to Consider When Getting a Face Lift
Simply because someone is a medical doctor or “cosmetic surgeon” does not mean they are properly trained or qualified to perform complex procedures such as facelifts or rhinoplasty. To ensure your safety and the quality of your results make sure you get a doctor who has received the necessary specialized training and certification in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
After graduating with honors from medical school, Dr. Berman underwent years of specialized training in head and neck surgery as well as plastic surgery and is board certified by both the American Board of Otolaryngology and the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
- Is my doctor a board certified plastic surgeon?
The mark of a bona fide expert in any medical field is a board certification in their specialty. Board-certified plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery have undergone intense education and training, years of surgical residency, and stringent certification and recertification processes. However, not all boards demand the same level of knowledge and skill. The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only board sanctioned by the American Board of Medical Specialties (the all-encompassing board that supervises 24 medical specialty boards) to certify doctors as experts in plastic surgery.
Dr. Berman is also a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, which means he has taken the extra time, effort and energy devoting most of his practice to caring for those requesting aesthetic surgery needs. This is the society which fosters the quality and care for cosmetic surgery.
- What does my doctor’s cosmetic surgery track record look like?
When trusting a doctor to perform complicated surgery on you it is vital to know how they have performed in the past. To this end you will want to find as many reviews and testimonials from your doctor’s previous patients as possible, as well as any before and after pictures you can, to better understand the quality of work you should expect.
- Where would my facelift procedure be performed?
While cosmetic surgeries can be safely carried out in hospitals or office-based surgical suites, it is often better to go with private surgical setting as it ensures quality care. Expert anesthesiologists, recovery room nurses, and scrub techs are hand-picked by Dr. Berman, the facility is customized to meet the needs of cosmetic surgery patients, and personalized attention mark the quality and care by Dr. Berman. In a private surgical setting, there is also far less risk of being exposed to contagious patients or infections. However, if you are not having your operation conducted in a hospital it is imperative to make sure your doctor’s facility is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) to confirm the safety and sanitation of said facility.
- What medical organizations and hospitals is my doctor associated with?
The standing of your prospective surgeon amongst his medical peers and colleagues says a lot about their level of skill and experience. Membership in local, state, and national societies gives you an indication of the surgeon’s commitment to safe, state of the art care. It is also reasonable to be knowledgeable about which hospital(s) the surgeon has privileges at. That means his qualification have been scrutinized by his peers and found to safe and has correct training to perform surgeries at that particular hospital. And even if your surgery is to be performed in a private facility it is good to know your doctor has been evaluated by a hospital’s review committee to confirm their training and proficiency in particular procedures.
