Choosing your surgeon is difficult- everyone seems to offer something. But this is an important decision- this doctor will be entrusted with the safety and appearance of your face or body.The good news is that this decision, while important, does not have to be complicated. By considering a few factors, you will be able to make an informed decision. And we’re confident your consideration will lead you to Aspira Plastic Surgery.
Finding the Right Surgeon
Many of the doctors you’ll find during your research will talk up their amenities- the impressive-looking things they can offer you as part of your experience. And there’s no doubt that a pleasant, relaxing, comfortable office is important.
But by far the most important consideration is your safety. Because plastic surgery has grown so common, many under-qualified medical professionals offer cosmetic procedures. And Dr. Erella has frequently been called on by dissatisfied patients to address poor results.
When choosing a plastic surgeon, consider the following factors:
- Experience: There really is no substitute for hands-on surgical experience. Dr. Erella has been a practicing surgeon since 1992. This means he understands the reality of surgery. He has seen how things can go awry, and he’s comfortable enough not to panic when something unforeseen arises. You need a plastic surgeon with ample experience in the field.
- Board-certification: You should ensure that your plastic surgeon is board-certified in the field. Board-certification means that the surgeon has completed residencies in both general and plastic surgery, passed a rigorous series of oral and written exams and done the hard work needed to keep current on the latest developments in the field.
- Individualized attention: Many larger practices treat the plastic surgery experience as an assembly line, moving patients through the process as quickly as possible in order to maximize profits. At Aspira, Dr. Erella handles every case personally- you’ll discuss your procedure with him, you’ll deal with him throughout the process and he’ll perform your procedure himself.
You deserve the best. You deserve an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who treats you as a unique individual. You deserve Dr. Erella.
