As stated in a previous blog post this month, cosmetic procedures jumped 5% in 2010 compared to 2009. With this big increase in plastic surgery procedures comes more news of plastic surgery jobs that don’t live up to patients’ expectations. Most of the time, these botched jobs can be blamed on plastic surgeons who are either inexperienced in a certain procedure or not board-certified by industry organizations like the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or The American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Pope is finding that many patients are seeking him out for revisionist surgery—corrective surgeries that were previous performed by another doctor that did not provide the end results the patient desired.
At Pope Plastic Surgery, we always stress how important it is to choose a plastic surgeon wisely. Do your research. Talk to previous patients. Look up your doctor and make sure that he or she is certified by an accredited board. And also remember, any licensed physician can call themselves a plastic surgeon. For example, a doctor may be certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties, but not the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
We understand how frustrating it can be for patients to undergo a second or even third procedure for revisionist surgery. Rest assured—you are in good hands with Dr. Pope and his qualified staff.
Dr. Pope has been performing revisionist surgeries for over 20 years, and he has consistently been endorsed by not only previous patients and area magazines like Orlando Magazine (Voted “Orlando’s Best Plastic Surgeon” two years in a row), but also by his contemporaries.
In fact, many plastic surgeons and other medical professionals in Orlando often refer their patients (or their own family members) to Dr. Pope because of his vast experience in this field of rhinoplasty work (nose jobs and nasal reconstruction). For patients who underwent previous nose jobs and were not happy with the results, Dr. Pope may be the revisionist surgeon you’ve been searching for. Other areas of Dr. Pope’s expertise in revisionist surgery are in breast augmentations for women and gynecomastia procedures for men.
*Dr. George Pope is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPC). The American Society of Plastic Surgeons is the largest organization of board-certified plastic surgeons in the world. Representing more than 7,000 physician members, the Society is recognized as a leading authority and information source on cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery.
