Safety In Outpatient Facilities-Inspection by AAAASF

https://www.plasticsurgery.org/patient-safety?sub=Accredited+Facilities

You have decided to have cosmetic surgery and you are scheduled for surgery. If this surgery to be performed in the hospital you probably do not think twice about the safety of the facility. Chances are you are paying more than if the surgeon does the same procedure in their private accredited outpatient surgical suite. Make sure it has met the same standards as that hospital you trust.

Dr. Siegel’s private outpatient surgery has been certified by AAAASF for 28 years. He is also an inspector for this organization for 20 years, which allows him to see other facilities and incorporate the latest technology in his own facility. Interacting with other plastic surgeons by inspecting other facilities has been both informative and rewarding for Dr. Siegel […]

Are Breast Implants toxic?

The following link raises the same questions many women who are considering breast implants all have. It states that leading hospitals and Plastic surgeons are using breast implants and the FDA has allowed them back on the market since 2006. Good information to have if you have breast implants or are considering them. Research continues today with every implanted device required to be registered and tracked for any complications.

Consumers, Be Cautious

Some may wonder why Physician dispensed skin care costs more than mass retail skin care, considering that many of those cosmetic skin care brands make incredible claims. Products regulated as cosmetic (and not drugs) make claims that haven’t been scientifically supported or approved by the FDA, so it is often up to the consumers to protect themselves. Faced with the possibility that some cosmetic skin products might be making claims that haven’t been evaluated by the FDA, how can a consumer choose the right cream or lotion? Consider a quote from the FDA; “If a product seems too good to be true, it probably is.”

Are some cosmetics promising too much? FDA website http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm439270.htm

My 6 week check up-Getting My Body Back

My 6 week check was today and I am excited to be able to work out again. I have been walking but ready to get back to my vigorous routine. I have been wearing my garments faithfully and it actually feels better to keep it on at all times. The support really has helped with swelling and added comfort when moving. I recently have been taking it off at night, but I have several types and the one for sleeping is much softer and less support. I am feeling really good and I love the way I look now. My scars are healing well and the swelling is almost gone. My stomach profile if straight and flat. I love it. I have cleavage now, and […]

Getting my body back-The first days of recovery

I slept fairly well the first night which surprised me. I guess with the anesthesia, pain medication and the toll the surgery took on my body I was tired. I did get up three times to the bathroom as I am back to my water bottle and consuming lots of fluid. But that is what Dr. Siegel instructed me to do, so I am trying to be a good patient. Laying in bed for extended periods of time is not good for anyone, but with my increased risk of DVT’s I want to be up every few hours anyway. I took my pain medication on a schedule so I was never letting the pain get too bad. I was not pain free by any means, […]

Who is really qualified to do cosmetic injectables?

There has been  a lot of press about who is best qualified to do cosmetic injectable fillers. Having the title MD allows you to “practice” medicine, but doesn’t necessarily mean you are the best qualified in all areas. That’s why we have many specialists. Medicine advances at a fast pace today thanks to research. Keeping up with the demands of one’s own specialty requires continuing education in ones chosen field.

So the question is, do you want your Gynecologist, Dentist, or Family Practice physician who took a week-end course to be the expert who is injecting your face for the purpose of helping you look more youthful? It’s not against the law in most states for them to order these products or offer this type of […]
