COVID – 19 has certainly made life a little more complex, especially if you are interested in plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. Under the current Executive Order of the Governor, these types of procedures are not permitted until the public health crisis has subsided. Now is a great time, though, to prepare for your procedures by doing some research and finding the right surgeon.
Research Plastic Surgeons
Selecting a plastic surgeon has far greater effects on the outcomes of your cosmetic procedures than the surgeries and treatment. Experience, skill, expertise, and patient satisfaction are all contributing factors that you should research, and you should only entrust your care to a board-certified plastic surgeon. Board certification demonstrates that the surgeon is committed to patient safety, exceptional outcomes, and staying informed of advances in cosmetic surgeries and treatments. Another consideration for the COVID-19 pandemic is to look for a surgeon that offers virtual consultations.
