Choosing a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon in Patchogue, Long Island, NY

Choosing a plastic surgeon for your cosmetic procedure can seem like a daunting task. After all, you are trusting this person with your aesthetic results and your overall health. Therefore, there is a lot at stake.

You want a skilled, experienced surgeon who will perform your procedure safely and give you the look you want. If you are in the Long Island area, Dr. David Pincus is that surgeon.

Here are five things to keep in mind when looking for a plastic surgeon near Patchogue, New York.

What Should You Look for in a Plastic Surgeon?

The Plastic Surgeon Must Be Board-Certified

Find a plastic surgeon who’s board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Surgeons receive board certification only after completing at least six years of surgical training, two or three of which they must devote to plastic surgery.

The surgeon must also complete rigorous examinations (both written and oral) and demonstrate ethical and safe surgical practices. The medical field views plastic surgery as an art, so research extensively to ensure satisfactory results.

Dr. Pincus is board-certified by the ABPS and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The Plastic Surgeon Should Have Hospital Privileges

Where the plastic surgeon operates matters. While many surgeons have their own operating room facilities, it is important that they also have hospital privileges at reputable hospitals.

Dr. Pincus holds hospital operating privileges at:

  • Plainview Hospital
  • Huntington Hospital
  • St Catherines of Sienna
  • North Shore/Long Island Jewish

The Surgeon Should Ask You Questions About Your Medical History

Plastic surgeons ought to provide holistic treatments that consider your medical history. Whether the surgery you plan to undergo is reconstructive or cosmetic, your surgeon needs to consult your medical history.

Your medical history should inform the potential treatment options that the surgeon gives you. Therefore, you want a surgeon who asks you questions about your medical history as it’s an indication that they are thorough.

The Surgeon Should Only Recommend Safe, Suitable Procedures

Ethical plastic surgeons avoid overselling additional non-essential procedures with unclear benefits. Some procedures may enhance or complement the benefits of other procedures. For example, breast augmentation and breast lift are complementary procedures commonly performed together to enhance aesthetic results.

However, an ethical surgeon will not suggest rhinoplasty (nose surgery) as a good combination procedure to breast surgery.

Good plastic surgeons prioritize your needs. They create a relationship in which you are able to define your goals clearly. Together, you and the surgeon set reasonable expectations for your reconstructive or cosmetic procedures.

The Surgeon Should Provide Comfort and Assurance

You should have a comfortable, trustful relationship with your surgeon. Even though complications are rare in plastic surgery, you want to feel sure that you are in good hands if something unexpected happens. Only move forward with a surgeon with whom you have a high degree of trust.

A good surgeon will let you ask questions about the procedure and express your anxieties. They will give you safe recommendations that match your needs and provide a full explanation of the procedure.
