I’m truly honored to be included among the men and women who have received this recognition and been acknowledged by our peers.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 29, 2011
Jeffrey M. Kenkel, a Dallas cosmetic surgeon and vice-chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center has once again been included in D Magazine’s annual listing of the top physicians in Dallas. This is Dr. Kenkel’s fourth year to be recognized as one of the best plastic surgeons in the city.
The prestigious “best of the best” list appears in D Magazine’s November issue. The annual recognition is especially significant as these outstanding physicians are nominated by their peers. One of the questions that appear on the nomination form is “Which Dallas doctor would you trust with the care of a loved one?” Over 1,650 physicians responded with their votes.
“I’m truly honored to be included among the men and women who have received this recognition and been acknowledged by our peers. It’s a validation of a lot of hard work and determination to be the best we can be: to offer to our patients the best of our knowledge and skills.”
Dr. Kenkel has long been recognized for his skill and experience as a plastic and cosmetic surgeon not only by his peers, but also by his patients. He is a strong advocate for patient education and believes that D Magazine physician listings help patients make more informed decisions.
“Patients need to do their homework before choosing a cosmetic surgeon. They need to know something about the surgery or treatment they want. Unfortunately, what they often see on television or read in newspapers or online trivializes the surgery or deliberately misleads them.” As Dr. Kenkel points out “cosmetic surgery is surgery. There’s nothing trivial about it so patients must carefully choose their surgeon.”
Dr. Kenkel urges patients to select a surgeon who is board-certified in plastic surgery and properly trained in the procedure they want. “Check to see that the facility is accredited. Many of my patients come to the appointment with a list of questions for me. It’s a great starting point for our conversation.”
Dr. Kenkel performs numerous cosmetic procedures including laser resurfacing, body lifts, and facelifts in Dallas at his clinic in the Outpatient Building at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He firmly believes that the more patients understand about a medical procedure the more likely they will be satisfied with the outcome.
“We don’t encourage impulse decisions. We take a careful medical history and discuss the pros and cons of the procedure and the probable outcome, so that the patient is fully informed and comfortable with their decision.”
