Louisville magazine’s August 2010 issue featured their biannual listings of the “Top Surgeons in Louisville” . Rather than just name docs in a specialty, they recognized that each specialty of medicine had independent and multiple different skill sets. For instance, not all heart surgeons concentrate on surgery of the lungs yet they are all called Cardiothoracic Surgeons.
It is the same for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. There are many areas of concentration under the Board Certified Plastic Surgeon umbrella. Some plastic surgeons spend a good portion of their time and effort in doing reconstructive or hand surgery while others may concentrate on purely cosmetic surgery. I have devoted the last 15 years in doing just cosmetic surgery.
Louisville magazine’s survey questionnaire went to all physicians in the Jefferson County Medical Society. They asked if they or any of their family members needed surgery for a specific operation, who would they choose. I was honored to have been chosen for almost every cosmetic plastic surgery procedure they asked about. I find other MD’s to be critical and discerning when it comes to their own or families health care and I am thrilled that when they were asked to pick a Louisville doc to do their cosmetic plastic surgery procedures that a majority choose me.
