Focus on Educating the Public About Plastic Surgery and the Importance of Board Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
Allure Plastic Surgery, an exclusive plastic surgery practice owned and operated by four board certified plastic surgeons, launched their official website on Thursday, May 1, in preparation for their grand opening, which will be announced in the weeks to come. Believing that an informed patient is the best patient, the website will serve as a reliable source of information for people interested in plastic surgery.
Concerned with the increasing number of reports of patients dealing with serious complications from surgeries performed by medical professionals that lack formal plastic surgery training, the plastic surgeons at Allure are devoted to informing the public about how they can ensure their safety during all phases of surgery, from the research phase to post-op and recovery.
The website features in-depth biographies of each of the four surgeons: Jorge de la Pedraja, M.D., Bernabe Vazquez, M.D., Onelio Garcia, M.D., and Ronald Reyna, M.D., who are all board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. By providing such detail, the doctors hope that prospective patients will be able to compare their experience and achievements with those of other surgeons they may be researching to ensure that they understand the level of training their surgeon should have, are able to ask the right questions, and ultimately make a well-informed decision.
Having spent ample time planning and building the Allure practice, the surgeons decided to become the sole owners, managers, and operators of the facility so that their patients’ best interests will always be the office’s highest priority. Dedicated to a safe, honest, and confidential environment where patients can feel comfortable asking questions, expressing their concerns, and discussing their goals, the doctors offer no cost, no obligation initial consultations so men and women have somewhere they can go to speak with an actual board certified plastic surgeon before making a decision.
“While we encourage patients to research their options thoroughly before choosing a facility to perform their surgery, we also encourage them to schedule a consultation with us before they make their final decision,” says Dr. de la Pedraja.
Once a consultation is scheduled, the doctors will provide the prospective patient with password-protected access to their TouchMD system. Through this confidential platform, patients can review informational literature about their procedure of choice as well as details about the surgeon with whom they’ll meet, view before and after photos of others who have had the same surgery performed, and fill out all of the paperwork prior to visiting the office. This allows patients to come in prepared to discuss their procedure, to ask questions and address specific concerns, and will ultimately allow them to make their decision to move forward with confidence. It also ensures that their medical histories are accurate as they have the time to fact check with parents and physicians, which also reduces the amount of time spent waiting in the office.
When asked about Allure’s unique consultative approach, Dr. Vazquez said, “There are some practices that fail to emphasize the fact that plastic surgery is real surgery. There can be risks and complications, dissatisfaction, and lengthy recovery times. Patients shouldn’t make the decision to have plastic surgery with levity, without understanding both the benefits and the risks.”
“Plastic surgery can certainly boost confidence and help people achieve their goals,” adds Dr. Garcia, “but only when the patient has realistic expectations. Only an experienced board certified plastic surgeon can determine what a particular patient can expect.”
Answering a question about what makes Allure unique, Dr. Reyna said, “Our consultations allow us to get to know our patients and explain what a certain procedure will be able to do for that individual. No two people are the same, so results are not the same for everyone. We provide honesty, realism, and information. That’s what makes Allure so different from other practices.”
Allure Plastic Surgery is an exclusive surgical practice devoted to all aspects of aesthetic plastic surgery. With construction almost complete, Allure will soon open its doors and begin offering consults to patients in their office located on the lobby floor of the luxurious Merrick Pointe Building in Miami, Florida.
