Why Attend The Group Surgery Meetings
Dr. Sameer Jejurikar says attending the cosmetic and plastic surgery meetings can be beneficial for doctor by preparing them for the future of the field. He says it’s difficult to know where plastic surgery will be over the next several years. He feels that the grafting procedure will be even more popular, no matter if it’s dealing with the butt the breast or the face. Fat is right up there under stem cell injections. Fat also has its own restorative and regenerative properties. That’s an experience you don’t get with implants.
Informed Patients Stay Safe
Patients should be seeking knowledge as well. They should be mindful of who they are choosing to perform their procedures and have at least a basic understanding of the training required to have them done right. Dr. Jejurikar says there is a threat out there to plastic surgery. Some of the procedures you should get from a plastic surgeon you may get offered by a cosmetic surgeon. Professionals and the public should be aware of the training required and potential risks.
Understand Your Procedure
Patients should beware if a cosmetic surgeon wants to perform a surgery that does not fit their background. Some people don’t realize the difference between the two surgeons. Cosmetic surgeons do not go through the same rigorous training as plastic surgeons. Reconstructive surgery is something that less surgeons are willing to do because there is a reduction in physician reimbursement. There are already very few that can do a really good job, but sadly the numbers are dwindling.
Do Your Research
Dr. Jejurikar hopes that patients can avoid surgical complications by doing their homework on the surgeon and the procedure. He is also hopeful that future doctors will take the time to realize what training is required for them to get into each field. Shortcuts are putting lives at risk.
