If you are thinking of getting plastic surgery in Tampa, there are many different factors to consider when choosing a plastic surgeon. Certainly, the education and qualifications are extremely important. However, successful plastic surgery depends as much on the aesthetic sense of the doctor, as well as on the skill as a surgeon so it is important to find someone that has both the technical ability and a keen eye for beauty. Other factors are also important, such as, is the plastic surgeon accessible and willing to provide a consultation prior to the surgery. You might be surprised how often patients in Tampa schedule surgery without having met or discussed the procedure with the plastic surgeon in advance of their procedure date.
Extensive Education Important for a Plastic Surgeon
The education of a plastic surgeon involves many years of study in both conventional medicine as well as in the specialized field of plastic surgery. If you are seeking a facial plastic surgeon, then the physician spends even more time learning about Otolaryngology which is head and neck surgery. Before considering or scheduling any surgery, it is highly suggested that you review the surgeon’s medical qualifications and certifications. Any surgical procedure should also be completed in a fully accredited medical facility that provides the most safe and sterile environment to ensure a successful outcome.
Highly Qualified Plastic Surgeon in Tampa
In the Tampa area, Dr. Dominic M. Castellano has both the extensive medical qualifications as well as the artistic abilities to provide the most natural results for patients that seek facial plastic surgery. Dr. Dominic graduated with honors from the University of Florida and then attended the University of South Florida College of Medicine to compete his medical degree. After a year as an intern in general surgery, he finished four additional years as a resident in Otolaryngology (Head & Neck Surgery) at the Eastern Virginia Medical School. Dr. Dominic finalized his formal education with a year of fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Texas at Houston. Dr. Dominic is double board certified in Facial Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology of the Head and Neck. From a medical standpoint, his resume is impeccable.
Understanding of Art and Beauty essential for a Plastic Surgeon
Beyond the medical degrees and length of experience in the field, the ability for a surgeon to look at a patient and visualize the potential improvements is extremely important. This is the art of plastic surgery, the ability to see what a patient looks like prior to surgery and what is possible in order to produce a younger appearance. This is a skill that takes both practice and aptitude. An excellent plastic surgeon can view the facial bone structure and quality of the skin to provide an expert opinion on the best procedure to help the patient achieve the desired look. Dr. Dominic has one of the best eyes in the business and the skilled hands to bring forth the beauty using the least invasive methods possible.
Another factor that is often not considered is whether the surgeon is approachable. In order for the surgeon to provide the absolute best results, it is important that they be able to clearly understand the goals and desires of the patient. Not all patients want to look like they are 20 years old again, some wish to look ten years younger but without any obvious signs of having had a surgery. Being able to meet with the doctor in advance is significant, but being able to easily discuss your goals with the surgeon is essential. So a doctor that is available, welcoming and easy to talk to is often a key factor in the satisfaction of procedure post-surgery.
