12 Things Plastic Surgeons Wish They Could Tell You

12 Things Plastic Surgeons Wish They Could Tell You

by Guest Blogger Amy Gallo

Plastic surgery is becoming popular with each passing day. The most shocking thing is that most patients are willing to get under the knife without even asking the surgeon questions. What you should know is that there are both risks and benefits associated with any plastic surgery. There are many things that your Plastic Surgeon wishes he could tell you but won’t.

Below is a list of 12 things your surgeon won’t tell you, though they wish they could.

1) Get Surgery for You

Many people go for plastic surgery simply because their friends did the same or their loved ones think it is the best thing to do. The decision should be yours entirely without someone pressuring you to do it.

2) Some Surgeons Will Operate on Anyone

Some doctors are just out to make money and pay their bills. If you decide to go for plastic surgery, always make sure the surgeon is board certified. Another great aspect is a doctor you can fully trust as this is very important to your health and wellbeing.

3) A Surgery Specialist Is Not a Fairy Godmother

Always have realistic expectations when going to your surgeon. Remember that your body has a limit to what it can handle. It is wrong to want to look like a certain celebrity. Surgeons are not miracle workers; they can only make a better version of you.

4) Getting Turned Down Could Be Good (more…)

Medical Malpractice Suits for Cosmetic Surgery on the Rise

It always saddens me to read stories about women who think they are getting a deal on their plastic surgery, ending up disfigured, or dead. When seeking cosmetic surgery, it is important to only go to a  Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. You should always ask about the doctors credentials before you commit to any surgery.  It’s important to understand that general medical doctors do not have the same training as a plastic surgeon.  Although it is legal for a family medical doctor to perform surgery, why would you take the risk? Just because a doctor trained in family medicine has opened a cosmetic clinic that does not qualify him  to preform cosmetic surgery on patients. Please do your homework. You only have one face and one body, choose wisely. Having revision plastic surgery is very costly. Some plastic surgeons will not even take the case and sometimes the damage is so disfiguring leading to suicide.  If you can’t afford to go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, than wait until you can!!The following is an article which appeared in the Omaha Herald, about a Omaha doctor was is not a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, yet he preformed breast augmentations, tummy tucks and eyelid lifts.

Medical malpractice suits filed against Omaha doctor, cosmetic surgery clinic

Aug 2, 2017 Updated 10 min ago

Seven women have filed lawsuits in Douglas County District Court alleging medical malpractice by an Omaha doctor and his cosmetic surgery clinic.

The lawsuits, filed last week, allege that the women suffered scarring, disfigurement and pain as a result of the actions of Dr. Gerard J. Stanley Jr. and Sculpt Contemporary Cosmetic Surgery in Omaha.

Omaha attorney James Martin Davis, who is representing the seven women and two spouses, said the women all thought Stanley was a plastic surgeon. They underwent procedures in his office including breast lifts, tummy tucks and an eyebrow lift.

 Davis said he referred the women to a board-certified plastic surgeon before taking the case and then to a second plastic surgeon to determine what remedies were available. Since the lawsuits were filed, he said, he has been contacted by four other women who have raised similar concerns.

A staff member at Stanley’s clinic referred a call for comment to his attorney, Mark Novotny of Omaha.

“We believe Dr. Stanley and Sculpt Cosmetic Surgery provided excellent care to these patients. Through the court system, everyone at Sculpt Cosmetic Surgery will be vindicated,” Novotny said in a statement.

 Stanley is board-certified in family medicine by the American Board of Family Medicine, according to the American Board of Medical Specialties, the nation’s largest accrediting body with 24 member boards. According to his website, he established Sculpt in 2012 and is a magna cum laude graduate of Creighton University School of Medicine.

In April 2014, he agreed to ensure that people working under his supervision work only within the scope of their practice and that they have the appropriate licensure required for duties.

The agreement came in response to an allegation that Stanley allowed unlicensed individuals to perform facials and chemical peels without a valid Nebraska license to practice aesthetics or cosmetology.
