New York, New York (PRWEB) October 01, 2014
Each year, more that 15 million people undergo elective surgery. According to renowned NYC aesthetic plastic surgeon, media expert and best selling author, Dr. Z. Paul Lorenc, “any surgical procedure whether it’s a root canal, a facelift or tummy tuck can be life threatening if you put yourself into the wrong hands.” Dr. Z. Paul Lorenc continues, "A person must be their own healthcare advocate when choosing a facility and a doctor for any procedure that requires any sort of anesthesia, general or local. The risks can be high especially if you don’t put your body and your life into the right hands. At Lorenc Aesthetic Plastic Surgery we provide our patients with a list of essential PSP’s (Patient Safety Protocols) that we suggest patients follow whether they are having surgery at our facility or elsewhere. http://www.lorenc.com
Among some of Dr. Z. Paul Lorenc’s must know PSP tips include:
- Do your research – Make certain the surgeon is board certified in the specialty for which you are seeking and has privileges at a hospital near the facility.
- Do choose an accredited facility – Confirm that the facility and staff are up to date on certifications. Look for AAAASF/JAHCO/AAAHC accreditations
- Do ask questions about your anesthesiologist. - Ask who is giving you anesthesia. Are they board certified? Do they have experience in this type of anesthesia?
- Don’t shop for surgery on sale - It’s your face and body, not your sofa. Remember you only have one.
- Don’t always believe what your read on the Internet - An in person consultation with your surgeon and his / her staff PRIOR to surgery is essential.
- Don’t keep ANY secrets - from your surgeon.
Dr. Lorenc says, “Surgery can change your life for the better. You can have a positive outcome by keeping yourself safe during surgery if you use the Patient Safety Protocol guidelines (PSP’s).”
