Cosmetic Surgery Orlando

Are you Qualified for Rhinoplasty?

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, April 28, 2015

If an Orlando cosmetic surgeon believes that a patient is not medically or psychologically suited to a surgery, they may not carry out the procedure for preserving the health and safety of the patient. A total physical examination is also important, to make sure that the patient can withstand the effects of sedation, surgery, and recovery. An anesthesiologist can determine the safety of anesthesia use based on a patient’s lifestyle, health, and medical history. If you suffer from allergies to certain medications or anesthesias, if you have certain heart defects, if you smoke, if you are overweight, or if you are pregnant you may not be a candidate for surgery. It is important for surgeons to protect your health and safety above all else, so a full medical evaluation is necessary. It is also necessary to record the skin type, existing scars, and skin condition of the patient, along with the anatomical structures of the patient’s nose. A surgeon will take note of the angle at which the nose projects out from their face, the location and size of the nasal tissue and bone, the condition of the septum, the nasal valves, the nasal lining, the tip of the nose, and more. Sometimes, tests such as a mirror test or vasoconstriction exams can be performed to evaluate a patient before plastic surgery. The Cottle's maneuver can be performed to detect nasal valve disorders that will need to be corrected to encourage unobstructed breathing.

What to Look for When Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, July 22, 2014

The first step to finding a good cosmetic surgeon is looking into their status in regards to board certification. The only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). If an Orlando cosmetic surgeon is not board certified by the ABPS, they may not be as well-trained and specialized in cosmetic surgery as a surgeon who is. In the medical field, most doctors are able to perform surgical procedures, but this does not mean they are qualified or even have any experience with such procedures. Another important aspect of choosing a surgeon is if they are a member of prestigious plastic surgery societies. If the surgeon has membership with the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), they may be a much better candidate than a surgeon who does not. Membership to ASAPS ensures that a surgeon is both board certified, and has a wealth of experience with cosmetic procedures. ASAPS is an invitation-only society, consisting of the top cosmetic surgeons in the nation.
